The Broad View: Fine Art Portfolios from Context, to Creation, to Completion at FotoWeekDC

Dates: Sunday, November 11th, 2012
Fotoweek DC
Goethe Insitut

The most important tool that a photographer can bring to their work is knowledge and insight.  Many photographers spend much of their education on learning the bells and whistles of cameras and changing technology, and don’t consider what is equally as important: Creating a voice, having ideas, producing stellar prints, and knowing where the work they create fits into the contemporary art market.  Ultimately, what is most rewarding and most important is The Work.

This three-hour workshop is geared to beginning and emerging photographers.  During the session, we will explore how to develop ideas for projects by examining the fine art market and by exploring the context of award winning or meaningful portfolios.  Portfolios will be presented to also help explain contemporary genres of photography, touching on categories that are often offered in competitions or magazines, and we will look at what kinds of work fits into what kind of market.

In the workshop, we will also not only discuss how to create a portfolio but in addition, how to present a body of work to the fine art market, focusing on your ability to articulate your work and produce quality photographs.  The details that surround the work you make are important to establishing yourself as a professional.


Workshop fee: $165 (includes PDN’s 30: Strategies for Young Working Photographers - Moderated by Holly Stuart Hughes, PDN Editor in the afternoon)
