My job at the Northern Short Course – Portfolio Reviews. This year I had 26 reviewers doing 20 minute slots for 2 night. That is 312 portfolio reviews by photographers and editors from National Geographic, the AP, Washington Post, New York Times, ESPN Magazine, Dallas Morning News, and so so many more!
