Portfolio Creation Workshop with Les Picker

 

May 20th and 21st 2017

A two-day workshop offered by Moab Master Photographer Les Picker and Master Printer Robert Boyer.

Register here. Limited to four participants. 

More about the workshop.

Learn the art of self-critique. Create a hand-made, cloth-covered, boxed portfolio showcasing ten of your finest images, offered in an elegant, state-of-the-art presentation and designed to advance your photographic goals.

Top Ten Takeaways From This Workshop

  • Two-on-one consultation with two experienced, successful, professional photographers to help you curate and edit your work
  • Assistance selecting and post-processing your best images
  • Fresh perspectives on your own work and how to make effective editorial decisions
  • Learn numerous strategies for dealing with your own editorial process
  • A weekend of considered dialog with other serious artists
  • Develop contacts for editorial assistance going forward
  • Experience the value of outside editorial input on your work
  • How the editorial process can shape your art
  • Ten archival prints professionally printed on Moab fine art papers, using state-of-the-art Canon printers.
  • Distinctive, cloth-covered portfolio box, hand crafted in the USA

One of the hardest things to do as a photographer is edit down your work to a cohesive collection of the best and most fitting images, whether it be to support a single theme, single project or the best representations of your work.

What serious photographer does not realize he or she needs to have a professional portfolio to show friends, potential clients, judges at juried shows, or to peruse for their own enjoyment?

In fact, a professionally curated portfolio is essential for success as a serious photographer. Images come alive when carefully selected, meticulously edited and printed on fine art, archival paper. Viewers appreciate the look and feel of museum quality prints.

Yet, in our experience we have found that the majority of photographers either do not have a portfolio to showcase their art, or the one they use is actually detrimental to their success. Unfortunately, photographic portfolios are often poorly planned, poorly curated, and even more poorly executed.

If you are a serious photographer, here is a chance for you to walk home with a beautifully hand-crafted, hand-printed, and carefully curated fine art portfolio that will show off your work to the highest standard in the industry today.
