Summer Portfolio Workshop with Jade Doskow

Summer Portfolio Workshop
Instructor: Jade Doskow
Dates: May 28th – July 16 2015

Thursdays 2 – 5 pm (8 sessions)
Cost: $450 ($405 for members)
This class is limited to 12 students.

This class is geared toward photographers looking to move a current project to the next level, whether preparing for portfolio reviews, gallery meetings, school admissions, or other related professional goals. We will engage in in-class critique and discussion to hone and perfect a body of work. Topics such as concept, logistics, type of printing and paper that best suits the subject matter, scale of presentation, and Photoshop work will be addressed. There will be several trips to museum and gallery exhibitions to relate students’ work to current trends in the medium. Weekly assignments will reflect each individual project, and students will be expected to bring new work to each class.

Please bring a portfolio of photographs to the first class that reflects your goals.
