Have your portfolio reviewed on the spot by museum curators and trained photography pros. Each review session lasts 15 minutes and you may purchase your review in 3-session blocks. Once you have made your purchase, a member of our Photo Video West team will be in contact with you to schedule your Reviewers and times.
Portfolio Review Guidelines
Arrival Time – Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your Review session and check-in at the Portfolio Review Registration Table.
Timing – Each Review lasts a maximum of 15 minutes. Please be mindful of this time limit, as there will be someone waiting for your Reviewer after your session.
Your Portfolio – Make sure to bring your portfolio with you! Whether this is a flat printed portfolio or a digital presentation, no reviewer will be able to comment on your work with out it in front of them. *If you bring a digital presentation, it should be on your own battery-powered device. There will be no other devices or power sources available for you to use, so make sure your device has enough battery power for all 3 reviews. Your presentation should be set up prior to the start of your review. No WiFi connection will be available.
Cancellation Policy – No refunds will be given for cancellation.
Disclaimer - We reserve the right to add or remove Portfolio Reviewers and Review times at our discretion. Individual sessions are given on a first come, first serve basis.
Tips for Your Review
• Research the reviewers available to you. See if your work is relevant to any of the professionals or their field.
• Arrive to your Review with questions in mind. You only have 15 minutes and you don't want to waste time by thinking of questions on the spot!
• Bring the portfolio you would want to show to prospective clients. These Reviewers are not there just to give you feedback; they have the potential to become a contact you may use in the future.
• Be prepared to receive constructive criticism. Reviews are a wonderful opportunity to learn, improve upon your skills and receive some creative guidance.
All questions regarding the Portfolio Reviews may be directed to Elizabeth Pun at email@example.com or 619-312-1212.

All tickets are non-refundable. Program subject to change without notice. Please reserve early, as limited space is available.
All tickets are subject to service fees. Our tickets are processed through a third party, which charges a convenience fee per ticket to offset operational and product costs.
These terms and conditions contain legal obligations. Please read these terms and conditions carefully before using this site.
You expressly understand and agree that: (a) this site and any of the services are provided on an "as is" and "as available" basis and that this site makes no warranties, representations or conditions (as used in this section "warranties") of any kind, whether express or implied, including but not limited to implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement and that any such warranties are hereby expressly disclaimed, and (b) this site specifically makes no warranties that a it or any of its services, including any content, information, products or services obtained from or through the use of this site or any of the services, will be provided on an uninterrupted, timely, secure or error-free basis or that such services or the results derived therefrom will meet your requirements or expectations.
BILLING INFORMATION VERIFICATION
Orders are processed only after a billing address, and other billing information, has been verified. Occasionally, we receive incorrect billing or credit card account information for a ticket order that can delay processing and delivery. In these cases, Customer Service will attempt to contact you, using the information provided at the time of purchase. If Customer Service is unable to reach you after its initial attempt, Customer Service may cancel your order and may sell your tickets to another customer without further notice.
PRICING AND OTHER ERRORS
If the amount you pay for a ticket is incorrect regardless of whether because of an error in a price posted on this website or otherwise communicated to you, or you are able to order a ticket before its scheduled on-sale or presale date or you are able to order a ticket that was not supposed to have been released for sale, then: The Promoter will have the right to cancel that ticket (or the order for that ticket) and refund to you the amount that you paid. This will apply regardless of whether because of human error or a transactional malfunction of this website.
UNLAWFUL RE-SALE OF TICKETS
Unlawful resale of tickets (or attempted resale) is grounds for seizure and cancellation without compensation. A ticket shall not be used for advertising, promotions, contests or sweepstakes, unless formal written authorization is given by the Event Promoter, provided that even if such consent is obtained, any use of Event Promoter's trademarks and other intellectual property is subject to the Event Promoter's consent.
Occasionally, events are canceled or postponed by the promoter, team, band or venue. Should this occur, we will attempt to contact you to inform you of refund or exchange procedures for that event. For exact instructions on any canceled or postponed event, please check the event information online or contact us. If a refund is issued, then the Promoter will most likely give you a refund by issuing a credit to the credit card that you used to purchase that ticket, and the holder of the ticket will not be able to physically present it for a refund.
Customer Service typically only offers refunds and/or exchanges based on the promoter's, team's or venue's instructions. Customer Service is not obligated to issue a refund except to the extent that the promoter, team or venue responsible for bringing you the event (1) instructs us to issue a refund, and (2) provides us with the ticket funds necessary to issue refunds. In order to receive a refund or an exchange that may be offered, you will have to comply with the promoter's, team's or venue's instructions or deadlines, which, along with the decision about whether or not to issue a refund or an exchange, may be at the promoter's, team's or venue's discretion.
