Now that autumn is upon us, we find ourselves looking to harvest our work from the last year.
I have always found that being surrounded by like-minded, passionate people who encourage, support and champion each others work is an invaluable part of the creative process. To that end, I want to bring your attention to an exciting event happening here on campus this fall, Portfolio Bootcamp hosted by CENTER. And let you know that the EARLY REGISTRATION DISCOUNT ends this Friday, August 26.
Portfolio Bootcamp is designed to help photographers “refine your creative edge and ignite your brand.” A carefully selected team of professionals, curators, editors and publishers will be here September 23-24, 2011 to help get your project or portfolio the best shape it can be for next year's portfolio reviews, award, grants, Kickstarter campaigns and more.
Part workshop, part portfolio review, and part conference, key highlights of Portfolio Bootcamp are:
1. This RETREAT-STYLE WORKSHOP is designed for advanced amateur to professional fine art, photojournalist, and documentary photographers.
2. This is an opportunity to receive valuable feedback and REFINE YOUR WORK for awards, grants, and other important submissions. Having a professional editor, edit and sequence your work will give you that creative and competitive edge.
3. Robin Roffer, consultant to CNN, HBO, Sony, Verizon and other major corporations, and #5 branding expert in the world, will address how to STAND OUT & GET NOTICED. Roffer’s presentation will address the importance of claiming a personal brand while providing expert advice on defining and appealing to a target audience.
4. This is going to be a FUN AND ENTERTAINING event complete with delicious meals by Pinon Catering, informal receptions, an exhibition opening, a portfolio sharing, and a photo booth by Billy Hunt.
For photographers preparing to embark on campaigns to get more exposure, this weekend intensive will be a worthwhile investment. Plus, it's a "golden" opportunity to witness the glorious autumn light of Santa Fe!
Portfolio Bootcamp early registration discount is available until August 26. Scholarships, payment plans and affordable on-campus housing available. For more information: www.visitcenter.org/bootcamp
