Portfolio Reviews

Portfolio Reviews are often an excellent way to get your work noticed by industry professionals, including GUP’s editors. Members of the GUP editorial team participate regularly in organised Portfolio Review events, for example those hosted by photo festivals. Because we recognise that our readers may not always be able to attend one of these events, or perhaps would like more personal or extended attention, we are now offering portfolio review sessions on an individual basis.

The terms of these individually organised portfolio review sessions can be arranged with some flexibility, but in principle would consist of a 1-hour, one-on-one consultation, for a fee of 75 EUR plus VAT. All reviews will take place in Amsterdam, unless an alternate location is arranged by mutual convenience. To be explicitly clear, these portfolio review sessions are in no way tied to an agreement to publish the artist’s work, but are forums for discourse about the work, to receive feedback and guidance for the photographer’s artistic practice. In an informal and honest dialogue, our portfolio review sessions will offer a critique of your photographic work and recommendations for expanding your practice in the context of producing art.

The following members of the editorial team are available for portfolio review sessions:
Peter Bas Mensink, Publisher
Katherine Oktober Matthews, Chief Editor
Erik Vroons, Editor-at-Large

To request a portfolio review, please email your preferred reviewer with the specifics of your request. Organizations or institutions who would like more extensive or custom services are also invited to query our editorial team.

TIP: You may also like to read Katherine’s blog article So, What Do You Think? which describes the best way to get the most out of your portfolio review experience.
