How To Submit Your Portfolio

1. Email a link to a web gallery. Send a web link to your online portfolio. A Flickr gallery is fine — as long as it’s just your work and not a group gallery.

2. Email jpegs. The files should be 72ppi and 6″ x 9″ maximum. It’s best to put them in a folder and then zip the folder. If you can’t zip, send them one by one.

Email the link or folder to syl-at-pasoroblesworkshops.com [You'll have to type it manually as we hate spam as much as anyone.]

About Our Portfolio Reviews

To ensure that prospective students are ready for our Intermediate and Advanced workshops, we require a portfolio review as part of the application process. Don’t fret! This is not meant to be intimidating. We just want to check out some of your work. Ten photos to be exact. The last thing anyone wants is for you to pay good money for a workshop that you’re not quite ready for.

Why is this important? In a photo workshop, students learn from each other as much as they learn from the instructor. In fact, the networks of colleagues that you’ll head home with is one of the most important aspects of the Paso Robles Workshop experience. A quick portfolio review helps us confirm that you are ready to be a contributor to everyone’s success.

Do not wait for a portfolio review to apply for a workshop. You don’t need to get your portfolio reviewed before you apply.

Do not delay sending your portfolio after you apply. If required for the course, you won’t be accepted into a workshop until we review your portfolio. So, it’s best to not wait a long while to submit your photos. If you dawdle, someone else might get the seat you where hoping to occupy.

Send TEN of your images that best represent your current skills. It helps if the photos are similar to the content of the class. For a course on flash, sent pix that you’ve lit with flash. For a course on portraits, it helps to see your portraits. If you’ve never done this type of work, then send the best you have.
