NORTHWEST SUMMER PORTFOLIO REVIEWS
July 26th & 27th, 2008
Photolucida’s in-person Portfolio Reviews give photographers a chance to show their work to gallery owners, curators, editors, collectors and publishers from all over the US, but this time with a particular emphasis on professionals from the country’s Northwest region. Here is the list of our confirmed reviewers. Photographers register for one-on-one meetings with the reviewers of their choice and receive 4 or 5 20-minute reviews per day. It's a great opportunity to put your work in front of people who love photography and make decisions. Numerous photographers have walked away with opportunities to exhibit, publish and sell their work after attending the Portfolio Reviews. Past attendees from our spring Reviews have included Donald Weber, Doug Dubois, Elaine Ling, Todd Deutsch, Dona Schwartz, Rachael Dunville, and John Chervinsky.
Registration fee for two days of Reviews is $475.
Photographer's Master Index & The Portfolio Walk
Just as we do at our spring Reviews, each photographer's contact information and a thumbnail image will be printed in a Photographer’s Master Index, a reference tool to be distributed to all of the reviewers to keep among their treasures. All registered photographers are also invited to participate in the Photolucida Portfolio Walk, an off-site casual exhibition of their work. It gives the photographers, the reviewers, and the general community a chance to see all the great work that has come together for the weekend. In previous years this has been a very successful event, drawing in large numbers of viewers from the area.
The new Blue Sky Gallery, our gracious host for this year's reviews.
Our summer Reviews are taking place at Blue Sky Gallery's gorgeous new space along the Park Blocks in downtown Portland. Reviewers will be staying at the Ace Hotel. While participants are welcome to stay wherever they choose, The Ace Hotel, the Mark Spencer, and the Benson, are all within a ten-minute walk from the gallery. The Benson and Mark Spencer have offered discounted rates for a limited number of our participants, and the Ace’s rates (while not offering a discount) are comparable. To book your rooms, contact the hotel directly and be sure to tell them you're with Photolucida. For complete downtown hotel information, contact POVA.
REGISTRATION IS NOW FULL!
Please note: Photolucida’s Reviews are not juried, but we ask photographers to understand that their work needs to be at a certain professional level — attending an event such as this is an investment on your part and the caliber of your work should reflect this.
We will also be giving spots at the Portfolio Walk to 8 additional Oregon photographers. Thanks to all who applied!
We provide a full refund (-$30 processing fee) until June 7th. After June 7th we offer a full refund (-$30 processing fee) IF we can fill your spot with someone from the waiting list. If you decide to cancel your registration you may not transfer/sell your spot to a person of your choosing, the open slot goes to the first person on Photolucida's waiting list.
