Professional Image Review & Critique by Jeff Schultz

Image Critique / Portfolio Review  — Value & Benefits

WHY A PROFESSIONAL IMAGE CRITIQUE ?  You may post images to social media or share them with your friends & family and get feedback. BUT just what qualifications do those viewers have when it comes to knowing what makes a good image and how to improve it? During your personal, custom image critique I will offer an objective, educated and detailed, critique & insight of your images.

YOU GET MORE THAN JUST A CRITIQUE: You get me as a “Photo Coach” and can ask any questions you want during our time. My critique will include specific information on how your image can be improved (if it indeed it can be) by both composition, post-processing skills AND with potential ideas to improve the concept through image-creating techniques you may not know of or have considered.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT: I do your personal image critique by providing a live, real-time, on-line zoom meeting with you.  You can ask questions on any aspect you want as we move through your photos together. The session is recorded and then posted to a private URL for you to download, watch, re-watch and learn.

WHY TRUST ME FOR A CRITIQUE ? In my 40+ year career as a successful, experienced & published photographer, and former stock photo agency owner for 22 years (Alaska Stock Images), my critique comes from a solid basis and provides you with sound commentary to increase your knowledge. Just like I do on my photo tours and workshops, I am here to help take your photography to the next level. I can help increase your creativity and encourage your growth as a photographer by acting as a resource who communicates both the “how, why and what if” of the image-creating process.

 

  • Want to understand and learn from a professional photographer how your images can be improved or a new technique to make them unique?

 

  • Want to have one-on-one time with an experienced professional photographer to ask any questions you want?

If you answered yes to either of these, this image critique is right for you.

“Jeff’s eye has helped me understand what elements make for an interesting photo and he told me of a couple techniques I could use in the future to make my landscapes have more impact. Having the recorded session allows me to revisit his points and suggestions again and again. The critique was a worthwhile investment.” Jake B.

BEGIN YOUR CRITIQUE IN 4 EASY STEPS: 

1. Input your name and e-mail

2. Choose the amount of time/images you want critiqued & add any specific questions you’d like to address

3. Upload your images

4. Make your payment.  Immediately afterward reply to my e-mail to schedule your private, custom photo critique on a day and time that works for you.

Points to Ponder:

  • A good judge understands the process from concept to execution.
  • Rather than spend money on a new piece of equipment you may or may not use, consider investing in photo knowledge which you can use forever to help make your images more impactful.
  • Why Genuine Feedback Is So Important: At different stages of the development of our photographic skills, we naturally experience plateaus in our growth. Even as a professional I’ve done that. I feel it takes someone that has no bias in order to bring up new ideas or show the image creator where the image can be improved and other ideas to enhance the images.
  • If YOU like it, then it’s good. No matter what I or others say about your work, if it pleases you, then that’s good and is really all that matters.
