My portfolio reviews were very encouraging and I made some great new connections thanks to Filter Photo Festival!
I know of no other venue that is able to impact serious photographers like Filter Photo. Though this was my first experience, I gained so much in my interactions with other professionals, their work and publications and their shared passion for the art of the printed image.
Thanks for another wonderful year. I left Filter Festival completely inspired and ready to take on new, more challenging and thoughtful projects. Looking forward to next year!
Filter Photo Festival will be my priority from now on. And you are to be commended for an EXCELLENT list of Portfolio Reviewers. As good as it gets.
The reviewers I had were great. They were all very helpful in their judgment of my work. I even managed to get the ball rolling on some opportunities down the road. I was very pleased with the professionalism of the reviewers.
I really enjoy the whole experience, From the seasoned industry reviewers to the incredible photographers and their work. Everyone I spoke with was impressed with the event and took a lot away from it all. It was a learning experience that I am very glad I took part in.
Filter Festival was a wonderful opportunity to not only meet with the professionals in the field but to also meet a wide range of other photographers. I found both experiences very satisfying.
Filter Photo Festival is a gem of an event. The programing continues to improve every year.
