Portfolio Review Guide

Graphic with the Shutter Hub logo top left, text reading 'YOUR GO-TO PHOTOGRAPHY PORTFOLIO REVIEW GUIDE' below in white and green text and a photograph to the right showing hands with red painted fingernails and silver rings above a printed photograph in a box, the black and white photograph appearing to show a river with rocks in it surrounded by trees and mountains.

Portfolio reviews can be life changing but also vulnerable encounters. This guide came about from years of experience and conversations with photographers around the world who want to know how to get the most of their work. We’re sharing our tips as well as stories from photographers we have worked with, plus a list of our favourite opportunities around the world to get your work reviewed.




We want people to be able to see the value in what they’re creating and make sure they make the most of it. Brilliant work is being made and we’ve got to find the paths to get that work in front of more people. We’re always looking for the opportunity to make something great happen from the portfolio review experience, and we’re hoping this guide will help you make the most of it as well.
