SDN is launching a new educational program to help photographers progress in their careers as documentary photographers. Glenn Ruga, SDN Founder and Director, is now offering portfolio reviews of members' work.
Ruga is an avid reviewer of documentary and fine art photography and has conducted portfolio reviews for Review Santa Fe, PDN PhotoPlus Expo, New England Portfolio Reviews, ASMP, and the Palm Springs Photo Festival. He has curated numerous exhibitions for SDN, as well as exhibitions for the Photographic Resource Center and the New York Photo Festival, and is now consulting curator with 555 Gallery, a new photography gallery opening in Boston. He has taught a documentary master class in Boston and is the former publisher of Loupe magazine.
SDN is offering three levels of reviews and mentoring with Ruga:
In order to qualify for a review, you must have at least one live exhibit on the SDN website.
Ruga will address the issues that an individual photographer needs help with. This can be the choice of subject; access; personal vision; conceptual development; consistency of vision and technique; technical issues in shooting and image processing; advocacy; networking with NGOs, editing and sequencing; publishing, exhibitions, and assignments.
Interested candidates should send a brief inquiry via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
