Portfolio Project Kick Off

We will kick off the club’s first Portfolio project. Over the next 6 months, participating club members (open to any member) will complete a set of milestones culminating in a finished portfolio. Along the way, participating members will receive critiques on their portfolios and learn about creating a coherent collection of images.

The project is suited for anyone: professional or amateur. At this first meeting, club members can sign up to take part, will get their schedule of milestones and learn about the process. We will discuss the first step on the process of building the portfolio: creating a draft artist statement, finding a seed image and identifying several influences (i.e. other photographer’s work).

Jump Starting Creativity

After the portfolio project kicks off, club members Andrew Fritz will lead a discussion of how to jump start the creative process sharing some of their favorite methods. Attendees are invited to share and discuss their own views on creativity.
