Presentation is vital to a photographer. This includes editing, sequencing, writing a personal reflection, design layout and final presentation. These are essentials to the success of your project—whether it is a photo essay, portfolio, multimedia, book or exhibition. In addition, it is becoming crucial for photographers to learn how to create an online presence.

This 2-day intensive workshop aims to pair two photographers with a guest editor through one-on-one and group sessions focused on the editing, sequencing, and/or layout of a project. The guest editor will share his or her knowledge and experience with the photographer to further their work.
