For all the hours you spend SEO-ing your website just to have some bunker-dwelling code-writer change the algorithm without consulting you, twenty minutes in front of a human (yes they are human) Art Director will do you much more good in the long run. But they never take your phone calls, and they only look at your postcard on its way to the trash just long enough to check to see if it's addressed correctly (or so you think).

On April 29th, the Minneapolis St Paul chapter of ASMP is giving you the opportunity for some quality face time with Art Directors, Art Buyers and other Creative Deciders from the region.

Review 612. Friday, April 29th, at MCTC. Sign up for twenty-minute meetings with someone who will look at your work, give you honest feedback, and maybe even hire you some day, now that they've met you and can see that you (yes you) are human, too.

Priority will be given to ASMP members, so let this be the final nail in that coffin of excuses you've used to keep from joining ASMP - the premiere trade organization for professional photographers.

Registration will run from Monday, April 4 to Monday April 25. (Day of Registration will be a higher cost)

Portfolio Drop Off Option: 

So, you'd love to show off your work, but you get booked on a nice job that day, or maybe you're a bit shy and have a hard time making eye contact, or maybe you weren't able to get your nice photographer pants back from the cleaner in time.  Regardless, we have an option for you.  For just $75, you can drop off your book at our Review 612 HQ and we will leave it in the Green Room where all of our reviewers will be resting in between all their stimulating meetings. (Cash or credit card accepted when you drop off your book.) We will leave your book out for them to peruse at their leisure throughout the day.  It will be just like dropping your book off at any agency, except your book may be seen by a couple dozen creatives from multiple agencies in the space of one day, for a measly $75. OK? What's your excuse now?
