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 more like a private party just for Pro Photographers and Creatives.

We've lined up an impressive list of world-class Creatives, Agents, Photo Editors and Curators. 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.

We’ve 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 get to know each other, and begin the collaborative creative process.

Please don’t delay; register today. This event could sell out very quickly, and your Reviewer choices will be based upon the order in which your Reviewer Choice lists are received.

So register online, and email us your six top choices, in order of preference, today.
