On February 25 th , 2020, LPA will have a workshop on creating a photographic portfolio. Joanne Stolte will be presenting. The meeting will be at 6:00 p.m. at the Antelope Valley Senior Center.
Developing a sequence of related images, a photographic portfolio, allows a photographer to explore a subject or concept in greater depth and with more subtlety than the single, high initial-impact image which does well in photography club competitions and International Exhibitions.
The PSA Portfolio Distinction program encourages photographers to produce a body of work that reflects their personal style and photography interest. The process of developing a Portfolio provides a situation where the photographer learns to "see," "analyze," "blend," and "utilize" their photography in a fresh, original way. As a photographer progresses through the Portfolio Distinction levels they are challenged to demonstrate increasing competence, originality, and innovative skills.
Joanne Stolte, HonPSA, MPSA, EFIAP, ESFIAP, has been on the PSA Portfolio Committee since the inception of the PSA Portfolio Program in 2015. She took the PSA Portfolio Assessors Training Course and was responsible for setting-up the facility and making all the arrangements for the first PSA Portfolio Assessment. She produced an educational Program regarding Portfolios which she presented at the PSA Conference in 2016 and 2017. She has continued to refine and adapt this program as she has presented it to area clubs and at FotoClave in northern California last October.
