Praise for Online Portfolio Reviews

“I really enjoyed my session with Sandy Edwards and I felt a great connection with her.  I did learn some really valuable things that I had not considered previously such as building an audience in the city you live in first.” 

“Moshe was very kind and it was a very worthwhile experience. The session was very helpful, he gave me valuable feedback on my portfolio and also good feedback and guidance on producing images that are more likely to be successful in competitions” 

“She (Nicky Catley) opened my eyes to a number of photographers that I should observe and look into further... for me the session was more than worth the money and the time.”
