ASMPNY’s free Student Portfolio Review is is a great opportunity for current students and recent graduates to get their work in front of constructively critical eyes from leading magazines, galleries, photo agencies, and corporations as well as curators, individual artists, and critics (including representatives from such organizations as Time, InStyle, ClampArt, and Indiewalls). The event will be held in Brooklyn, New York, but students and recent graduates (less than a year out of school) from schools throughout the Northeast are welcome.
Other professional-level portfolio reviews often involve fees of hundreds of dollars to see only three or four reviewers of the caliber we’ll have participating, so you don’t want to miss this free chance to show these same prestigious folks your work without the high price tag. You’ll also get the chance to meet and network with your fellow peers, who will become an invaluable resource as you foster and build professional relationships.
Both digital and print display methods will be accepted, and participants will have 10 minutes with each reviewer. Doors open at 6:00 p.m., with a reception until 6:45 p.m., at which time reviews will begin. The reviewing process will promptly end at 9:00 p.m.
Here are links to two articles on how to make the most of photography reviews.

Chris Buck, photographer biography
Chris Buck was born in Toronto in July of 1964. His father worked for Kodak, so he went into the family business and became a photographer. Chris moved to New York in 1990 and established himself as a sought-after editorial and advertising photographer; his clients include Google, SAP, Old Spice, Dodge, GQ, The New Yorker and The Guardian Weekend.
Buck has won multiple awards, including being the first recipient of the Arnold Newman Portrait Prize in 2007. His first book, Presence: The Invisible Portrait (2012) was a collection of celebrity photos in which the famous sitters are present, but not visible. Kathy Ryan, Photo Director for The New York Times Magazine, called it a “crazy subversive book.” His 30-year retrospective, Uneasy: Chris Buck Portraits 1986-2016, is set for release February 2017.
His other series work includes Chris Buck’s Chris Buck (portraits of other people sharing his full name), Gentlemen’s Club (portraits of exotic dancer’s boyfriends), and Likeness (pictures of a 10 inch 3-D photograph of himself).
He spends much of his free time with his wife Michelle and daughter Olive. He takes his martinis dry, with a twist.
The program is organized by The American Society of Media Photographers New York in collaboration with the Parsons School of Design at The New School. In collaboration with The Parsons School of Design at the New School.
