“I have met some of the most interesting photographers at Format portfolio reviews, many of whom I continue to have lasting connections and working relationships with.
Both local, national and international photographers convene, and the range and diversity of work is remarkable.”

“Connecting with professionals on a personal level is the first step in entering a network in which your work gets seen and discussed. Once you plant that first seed in people’s heads, ultimately, as you develop and keep that network updated on your progress, eventually your work could be picked up for publishing or exhibitions. Participating in portfolio reviews is essentially a first investment into creating a sustainable professional artistic practice.”
