The FotoVisura Portfolio Review & Consultation is a dynamic session in which each photographer presents their work in one-on-one sessions with each of the participating editors. The editorial team includes the Visura Magazine staff as well as a carefully selected group of leading photography editors. Each editor will meet with participants individually to review each portfolio as well as give consultation on any new body of work (its edit, sequence, or artists statement) and obtain any specific guidance the artist may need. Through this process, each photographer will receive a highly productive 3 hour intensive workshop with a variety of perspective and approaches from leading professional editors.

REVIEWS FROM PARTICIPATING ARTISTS IN THE PART I EVENT:
—FotoVisura is not simply a self- publishing platform, it is a community of peers conceived and developed by photographers for photographers. As such members are on a first name basis and there is an atmosphere of ease and relaxation underlying interactions. The FV Portfolio Review is an extension of this. Conversations are frank and unguarded without sacrificing intellectual rigor. Reviewers like Jim Estrin bring an immeasurable knowledge and sophistication to the act of looking; it’s a privilege to share work with them. The FV team also brings an “artist boot-camp” engagement to the sessions. They take it upon themselves to get a project ready for the public eye along several fronts: print quality, editing sequence and clarity of written statements. FV cares about its membership and their Portfolio Reviews are a testament to their satisfaction in seeing their artists grow. —Jaime Permuth
—The FotoVisura Portfolio Review & Consultation was a terrific experience. I met with several knowledgeable photo editors in a casual, one-on-one setting and received valuable feedback on my work. In addition, one of the editors reviewed my project statement and gave me tips for making it better. I’m especially grateful to Adriana Teresa who has continued to give me advice after the review.—Susan Falzone
