Online Portfolio Reviews | Head On Photo Festival

Online Portfolio Reviews



Is something holding you back from getting that next client?
Is your work getting the exposure that it deserves?
Are you getting meaningful and constructive feedback on your work?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then a Head On portfolio review can help you.

Our reviewers will give you honest and constructive advice on your work and will also propose possible paths forward.

Our goal is to ensure that you have access to quality industry feedback at an affordable rate.

Book a session today to take your first steps to improve your photography.

Why Online?

Portfolio reviews traditionally run at photo festivals or as stand-alone events. While it is a fantastic opportunity to get feedback and to network with industry leaders, it requires a large investment from you both in time and cash. Between registration fees, travel expenses and printing your portfolio it can cost thousands of dollars, not to mention the potential loss of income while you are away.

We are not here to replace portfolio reviews but to offer something different; instead of you going to the reviewers, what if they came to you?


How does it work?

Each private session consists of a 20 min Skype session with two members of the Head On Photo Festival Curatorial team. The session is adapted to address your specific needs such as

  • - Finding your unique voice
  • - Pinpointing your technical strengths and weaknesses (composition, camera skills etc.)
  • - Helping you create a portfolio that sells
  • - Guiding you through shooting a personal project
  • - Identifying key shots for your project to build around 
  • - Exhibition design and book sequencing

All sessions are in English

Before the session

      • - A short biography
  1. Please check that you have the latest version of Skype as we will not have time on the day of your scheduled meeting to address any technical issues. We advise a Skype test before the meeting date
