Saturday, May 3rd, 2014
10am to 4pm

Get your work seen during five one-on-one sessions with the industry’s top photo editors. 

My experience at BDC’s 2013 portfolio review was valuable to me because as a photographer from a small, local paper I was looking to find out if my work was enough to make it to the national/international stage… Having no other connections in the city, I walked away from the review with a few in my pocket and the confidence and knowledge on how to use them. In many ways the BDC’s 2013 review was a huge stepping stone for me.
