ADD ON: Portfolio Critique – Saturday, September 18, 10am-3pm MT

Presented by Review Santa Fe Portfolio Reviewer and CENTER Advisory Council Member, Mary Anne Redding, this seminar offers advice on preparing your work for meetings with curators, editors, publishers, and other industry professionals. Portfolio Reviews offer opportunities for project distribution and making key contacts for career advancement for photographers working at all levels.

Attendees discuss the importance of tailoring their body of work to different types of opportunities from gallery and museum exhibitions to print publications and books. The second day of the seminar includes an invaluable portfolio critique session to refine your project.

We recommend having at least 20 images and upwards of 35 to edit and sequence for your project if you are looking for work-in-progress feedback.


MARY ANNE REDDING is an independent curator, formerly at the Turchin Center for the Visual Arts and the Marion Center for Photographic Arts, who has more than thirty years of experience working as a curator, archivist, librarian, educator, and arts administrator. She has written and published numerous essays on photography and contemporary art.
