Building a Photography Portfolio

Whether you photograph for personal reasons or to communicate with others, a carefully edited portfolio helps you develop your commercial or artistic vision. This class will focus on refining work you have already begun or developing a concept you wish to explore. Students will create a portfolio of 10-20 images and exhibit their work at the end of the course. Assignments include: an artist's statement, a project description and a marketing or exhibit strategy for using your photographs after the class.

Note: First class meeting mandatory. Previous photographic experience required. Recommended textbook: Taking the Leap: Building a Career As a Visual Artist by Cay Lang.
