Portfolio Review

+ More details


Get constructive feedback on your work over an online photography portfolio review from a working professional photographer and photo editor!

I have been shooting for Getty Images for almost 20 years and I have been working as an Editor for a few agencies and media Outlets….. I know what sells and how it sells.

Most photographers spend 90% of their time complaining and moaning about poor sales, companies not hiring professional photographers, students undercutting rates. They do not spend enough time promoting themselves in the correct way and with the right images not only on Social Media, website and presentation but especially with Editors of Newspapers, Magazines and Agencies!

My portfolio review sessions can help you:

Prepare a portfolio for submission to Magazine, Newspaper, Agencies

Get expert and objective feedback on your images

Identify your strengths and weaknesses

Improve the way you measure your own work

Better present and organise your work

Tips for making the best out of the session:

Choose which images are your favourites and which are your least favourite and make sure you can explain why

Make a shortlist of the things you feel you need to improve in your work

Make a shortlist of the obstacles you think are in your way to create better photos

Make a shortlist with questions you would like to ask

Posting a photo online and not getting any meaningful or helpful feedback from other photographers can be a very frustrating and painful experience. Surely your friends and family love your photography and praise your work, but that is nowhere near helpful for growing your work and improving your technique.

Getting an online photography portfolio review is probably the best way to improve your photography. This service is not just for advanced photographers – beginners and intermediate photographers can also greatly benefit from a portfolio review.

Portfolio Reviews can be an intense experience, both for the reviewer and photographer and in my professional opinion, this is the best way to grow.

I will give you honest and constructive advice on your work and will also propose possible paths forward.

My goal is to ensure that you have access to quality industry feedback at an affordable rate


Portfolio reviews traditionally run at photo festivals or as stand-alone events. While it is a fantastic opportunity to get feedback and to network with industry leaders, it requires a substantial investment from you both in time and cash. Between registration fees, travel expenses and printing your portfolio, it can cost thousands of dollars, not to mention the potential loss of income while you are away.

  • Marco gave us a very interesting and entertaining talk, and a real insight into the working life of a professional news photographer with a top agency. We all thoroughly enjoyed it!

  • It was very interesting to hear about the day of a news photographer in London and MS certainly got some great shots in what must sometimes be crowded and fast moving situations. I really enjoyed his work from Slovenia and other Eastern European countries. Would make me want to visit! The only downside was the live stream did freeze a lot and I had to keep reloading the page. I am on a very fast fibre connection so maybe it was to do with where Marco was streaming from?
