Seating is limited. Send the portfolio you wish to be critiqued of 5 images to firstname.lastname@example.org upon registration.
This is an intimate gathering of ten critiqued portfolios. Tony will evaluate lighting, composition, and shooting techniques as he would to his own images to offer direction toward better photography from an industry expert.
