The description of “Emerging Photographer” is a photographer who has been out on his or her own for sufficient time to have developed proficiency, vision, and derive or plan to derive the substantial majority of his / her income from photography, or an advanced student from a graduate program or certificate program in photography at an accredited school with a strong, focussed portfolio of solid work.

The Official Portfolio Review at PhotoPlus Expo is designed exclusively for industry influencer to meet with professional photographers and emerging photographers as described above.

If you are an advanced amateur photographer who would like to get advice on improving your work, or general directions as to ways to improve your work or take the next step, the Official New York Portfolio Review Program at PhotoPlus Expo is perhaps not the right fit for you yet. We will be happy to suggest alternative review programs where you can get good photographic advice and direction for their work upon request. The Palm Springs Photo Festival Portfolio Review Program is designed to include advanced amateur photographers; we will announce our 2014 program on November 15 at .
