Review Santa Fe

Filed under: psa — alecsothblog @ 12:30 am

In a recent post on advice for emerging photographers, I neglected to mention my absolute #1 recommendation, Review Santa Fe. In 2003 I won a free trip to the Reviews. I hadn’t heard of a portfolio review before and wasn’t even sure I wanted to go.

In Santa Fe I had a chance to have some of the most refined eyes in the country look at my work. Everthing changed. I left Santa Fe with a fistful of opportunities and a bunch of new friends.

If you don’t believe me, read what Brian Ulrich had to say.

The deadline for 2007 Review Santa Fe is quickly approaching: December 15, 2006. For information on applying, go here.

  1. Alec,
    I completely agree.
    Moving to New York to pursue a life in photography was a bit overwhelming to say the least. The Santa Fe review enabled me to meet a lot of people in ‘the business’ I otherwise would not have had any contact with; connections I continue to build while back on the east coast. Not to mention all the fantastic photographers I met. And thanks again for your advice before I went last year!
