American Photographic Artists, San Francisco presents a very special opportunity for APA Photographer Members to meet one-on-one, face-to-face, with insightful and influential Reviewers. This is no ordinary review event at a studio - it’s an exclusive private party just for Pro Photographers and Creatives.


We've lined up an impressive list of world-class Creatives, Agents, and Photo Editors. You choose three Reviewers to meet with, to help you refine your portfolio, and advance your career. In each 15 minute appointment, you'll be able to show what you do and who you are, and the reviewer will be able to offer you real-world feedback. You can present your finest work on your pad or laptop if you prefer.


We’ve again booked it at the impressive 111 Minna Gallery, around the corner from SFMOMA, and there will be an exclusive, no-host-bar Cocktail Hour at the end of the event, so you can all get to know each other, and begin the collaborative creative process. Unlike other Portfolio Reviews, every photographer member attending will have the opportunity to meet & talk with many of the Reviewers during the exclusive Private Party from 9-10PM.
