Fotofest Meeting Place Portfolio Review
In April 2013 I attended the Fotofest Meeting Place Portfolio Review in Houston. I’ve been meaning to do this for a long time. Here’s the deal. Photographers pay around $900 to meet with 20 (somewhat known} photo curators/editors/gallery owners of your choice. You sit on a table facing them, you show them your pictures, and you make your pitch, hoping that they will want to show/buy/publish your work. You have exactly 20 minutes, when a new batch of photographers come in and sit down. It’s like speed dating the art world.
