The reviewers come from diverse backgrounds (photojournalism, fine art photography, magazine and book publishing, physical and online galleries, business consultants, online marketing expertise) and can supply creative feedback and practical advice to photographers who wish to advance their careers.
Registration includes four 20-minute private review sessions, one with each of the four reviewers, plus ample opportunity for all of the photographers to share their work and insights with the other participating photographers. A generous group lunch is included, as well as coffee and refreshments during the day.
