Portfolio Reviews

For professional photographers and students

During the festival we organise the Online Portfolio Reviews on three different Saturdays: September 10th, October 1st and October 15th. The reviews will be online through Zoom. With the reviews we connect professionals with talents and give them valuable feedback on their work.
During BredaPhoto there will be a special place for the Online International Talent Portfolio Review. This year we have chosen to organize the portfolio reviews online via Zoom. This is easier to reach international contacts. Without burdening the environment with all kinds of travel movements we are able to bring people from different countries in contact with each other. We have chosen to organize these online portfolio reviews on three Saturdays in September and October.
We will connect professionals in the field with talents from the art academies we already collaborate with. Their portfolios and those of other emerging talents will be reviewed by professionals within the world of photography. As reviewers we have invited a selection of curators, editors, publishers and photographers.
