Special guests announced for our New Options for Portfolios discussion!

After perfecting new production techniques for photographers’ portfolios, we are ready to show off some samples. Please join us on June 9th at 7pm for an informal discussion on the state of the photographer’s portfolio in the digital age, and to see some samples of printing and binding for yourself.

We are excited to announce that we will have two special guests for our round-table discussion:

Photo-editor/photographer/Salaam Garage workshop leader Maggie Soladay will offer her input on what she looks for when hiring photographers for editorial assignments. As a photo editor, Maggie sees hundreds of portfolios, both online and in print. As a result, she can offer useful insight into aspects of producing portfolios that every photographer should consider.

Bookbinder Judith Ivry will also join us, to show varieties of custom bookbinding and portfolio boxes that she has produced. Judy has been an independent bookbinder for over 25 years, offering the highest standards of binding for her clients. She works out of her studio in Manhattan, as well as teaching and lecturing about binding techniques.

Please RSVP for the event here!
