This interactive course is designed to help you edit or expand your photography portfolio to most effectively communicate your unique voice as an image creator. All types of photographers are welcome, whether fine art, commercial, architectural, etc.

Individuals will receive feedback on their current portfolios, and receive guidance in making new works to grow portfolios in an impactful way. The course is structured over two months to provide the time for participants to create new works based on feedback they’ve received, while also work-shoping artist statements and pitches.

This is a terrific opportunity for those looking to craft successful applications for jobs, grants, fellowships, rehaul your website, or otherwise communicate your value effectively to your desired audience. Guest visitors will join us to provide additional outside input.

  • Please note that this class will involve sharing your work with other participants and a spirit of community is encouraged. All participants’ voices will be treated equally, privacy will be maintained if sharing sensitive subjects, and all work is welcome.

This course is led by Eleanor Oakes of Darkroom Detroit. Cost is available on a sliding scale, pay what you can starting at $200.
