New York Portfolio Review
CUNY Graduate School of Journalism
The CUNY Graduate School of Journalism is hosting the first New York Portfolio Review, sponsored by The New York Times Lens Blog. Lens is co-edited by James Estrin, a CUNY J-School adjunct who teaches photojournalism.
This unprecedented event is making major news in the photo world. More than 2,700 photographers at different stages of their careers competed for the opportunity to have their work reviewed by five leading industry professionals of their choice. Only 100 were chosen. The 50 reviewers who will be converging here include photo editors from National Geographic, Time, New York magazine, Vanity Fair, and The New York Times Magazine, as well as curators, books publishers, and gallery owners.
Sunday is reserved for photographers aged 18-27. Portfolio reviews will take place in the morning. From 1-7 p.m., free workshops will be held on photo editing, grant writing, copyright, and contract law, and how to make a career in photography–all taught by top professionals.
The Times expects to live-stream the workshops so that you, too, can benefit. Look for a link on our homepage.
