About this event

  • 10 hours
  • Mobile eTicket

The first annual Issues Photography Portfolio Review is an opportunity for photographers to show their work to a wide array of art buyers, creatives, and agents from the art, advertising and editorial sectors.

Hosted by Issues Mag Shop in collaboration with Della Rollins, who saw a gap in the industry events: As intermediate and senior level photographers, there aren't many opportunities to show off your book. Come because you're curious about transitioning into commercial work. Or you want to explore the world of fine art. Or you're craving the creativity of editorial projects. Or maybe you just hate making cold calls.

Our roster of reviewers have been carefully selected. They're all folks with the power to choose who gets repped, covered, hired and/or shown.
