Stretch yourself: the portfolio review

Lost your mojo? Need some direction? Looking for critique? We can help . . .

Structured around 3 core elements, this online skills development session, held online over Zoom,  is designed to give you an opportunity for frank and constructive analysis of your work while helping you to develop in any areas that might be holding you back. If you want to take that next step and would value some constructive feedback, this session is a must. The session costs £85, which includes the preparatory work, the online consultation and any follow-up reporting.

  • Lost your street photography mojo?

  • Want some constructive critique?
  • Struggling to find your ‘voice’?

1: Preparatory work

Complete our fact-finding questionnaire, digging deep into your goals, motivations, skills and objectives, then prepare 6 images for review and critique.

2: Online consultation

A video conference consultation over Zoom, usually lasting around 1 hour, to review your images, discuss your objectives and set goals for the future.

3: Action plan

We will then feed back to you with a development action plan to help take you towards your desired goals.

How it works – in detail

 

1:  Preparatory work

Once you have signed-up for the session, we’ll send you a questionnaire, the responses to which will help inform the content of our discussion; this is all about discovering about you and your objectives – where you are now and where you want to get to. We with then arrange an ‘online meeting’ at a time which suits us both – usually within 7 days. You will also need to send us 6 images which reflect ‘where you are now’. This preparatory stage will give you the opportunity to really think about your own work, whilst giving us plenty of material to explore in our discussion.

2:  The video consultation

Our session will last for around 1 hour, scheduled at a time to suit us both. Our meeting will be conducted using Zoom (don’t worry if you haven’t used it before – it’s very easy and we’ll send you instructions). How you use our time together is up to you – though the responses to the preparatory questions will almost certainly flag up some key areas for discussion. During our meeting we will cover areas such as:

 

  • A critique of your images, with frank and constructive feedback
  • Explore your aspirations as a street photographer
  • Address your objectives, as determined in stage 1, above
  • Discuss the things which hold you back (perceived and actual)
  • Expert help and guidance with any current or proposed projects
  • We will finish the meeting with a Q&A session covering any questions you may have

3:  Your action plan

During the week following our call, we will prepare notes which form a summary of our discussion, which will include a developmental action plan for you to put into practice. We may recommend any combination of exercises, assignments, reading suggestions, research or project work.
