Photo portfolios: Power critique!

20


20 per hour - Virtual OK

Just starting off in photography or photojournalism, or you've been in the business a while but starting to promote your work more aggressively, and want some expert feedback on how your portfolio looks to others, with real tips on how to do better?

This is a critique of your digital portfolio website (preferable) and/or collections of images that may reside on Instagram, Flickr or elsewhere.

Please share your goals for putting your photo work out there, and if applicable, what you'd most like feedback on. I'll look at content/tone of your collected work, flow, navigation, descriptions/captions, and personal brand issues (i.e. how or whether you describe yourself, your work, your outlook, your availability to clients, etc.)

I love photography and making portfolios better! Looking forward to seeing yours and offering advice on how to make even more of an impact.

Training & Qualifications


I've been a picture editor in some form or another for three decades. As a professor or adjunct at the college level, as well as consultant to magazines and newspapers, I've worked with photojournalism students and professionals around the globe. Personally, I'm an avid photographer of landscapes and abstracts, and have some experience shooting news and features stories as well. I've even conducted training for editors, newsroom managers, and photographers to provide better feedback and critique.

Availability & Preferences


Fairly available weekdays.

Trading Preference: I prefer being paid in simbi

About Ron Reason

I’m a visual storyteller. I consult on editorial design, strategy and brand. I occasionally share my love for these interests in the classroom. Next stop: Chennai, India. Across 36 countries I’ve ...helped marry words + images, with media partners seeking reinvention and students who appreciate the same. Notable client-collaborators: The NCAA. The Harvard Crimson. Standard Media Group (Nairobi, Kenya). The University of Chicago Booth School of Business. Gulf News and Emirates Evening Post (Dubai, UAE). Advertising Age. Modern Healthcare. Catholic Health World. Hindustan Times (Delhi). The San Francisco Examiner. The Dallas Morning News. The Chicago Reader. I’ve worked with some of the largest publishers in Brazil, Iceland, Spain, Singapore, Denmark and Nigeria on the reinvention of storytelling strategies, newsroom reorganization, creativity and leadership development. Notable teaching appointments have included, most recently, the University of Montana School of Journalism, as well as Poynter, the Ringling College of Art and Design, and the University of South Florida. I've been blessed by guest lecture invitations at home and abroad. At the heart of all my work: What's the real story here? Who's affected? Says one reference, a former editor for Advertising Age: "Ron's work is not only aesthetically pleasing, but actually helps build a better publication that gives more (and more useful) information to the audience – in other words, he can actually help you improve your journalism, not just the look and navigability of your product.” I share lessons about my approach and my work at my regularly updated blog: www.ronreason.com/designwithreason/ Skills: News judgment. Empathy. Critical thinking. Teaching and public speaking. Writing and editing. "Live" reporting, blogging and social media. Editorial design and redesign. Photography (composition and editing). Social media strategy and execution. Branding and marketing. Diplomatic coaching and critique. show more
