Testimonials from the day:
Thank you so much to you, Tom and Jonathan for your advice and feedback. It was an excellent opportunity to show my work to industry professionals, and it’s really nice to know that I am on the right tracks with my work. It was also good to have some honest impartial feedback about what to do for the future. When I need someone to help negotiate for a job in the future, I will definitely be coming your way! Hopefully see you again soon.
Thanks for the portfolio review and feedback Lisa Pritchard. Invaluable stuff! Cheers

LPA POP UP OPEN AGENT DAY – WEDNESDAY 21ST MAY
As one of the UK’s most well known agents, did you know LPA offers a unique ‘Pop Up Agent’ service to photographers who aren’t represented?
Two of the main benefits of having an agent are:
– We can give you some honest feedback on your portfolio, how suitable it is for the commercial market and how it might develop into more commissions.
– We can negotiate shoot fees, expenses and contracts and oversee all shoot logistics so you can just get on with taking the pictures.
LPA provides both these services to photographers without agents as part of its LPA Portfolio Reviews and LPA Production divisions.
For a full menu and price list of either of these ‘Pop Up’ Agent services please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org

Would you like an honest appraisal of your photography and photography ‘brand’ by one of the industry’s leading experts? Each month Lisa Pritchard, founder of LPA, offers a limited amount of one to one sessions at the LPA HQ in central London.
Being a photographer can sometimes feel a bit insular and although you might get regular comments and advice about your work, sometimes its difficult to know which to take on board and which to take with a pinch of salt. Lisa can offer you some unbiased, no nonsense feed back based on years of experience. So, whether you’d just like a one hour general review, a serious editing job on your website, or a full brand and marketing overhaul now’s your chance. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for a full menu, price list and availability.
“I set up LPA Portfolio Reviews nearly a year ago as a result of a huge demand from photographers of all levels asking if they could pop in for a chat about their work. I can only spare a certain amount of time but I thought it would be a good idea to set aside some time each month and offer formal review sessions. It’s often much easier for me to be subjective , identify weak ( and strong!) areas and give photographers a firm nudge in the right direction. I really enjoy the sessions and meeting so many different types of photographers, and the feedback about how useful the sessions are makes it even more rewarding”
Here’s what a few happy punters had to say…
“I was so excited to discover that LPA offered portfolio reviews – I felt I really needed a honest review of my work, and with LPA representing some of the best lifestyle photographers in the industry I knew that Lisa would be able to help me move forward with my business. My meeting with Lisa couldn’t have been more inspirational and really helped with building my confidence to promote myself. I am currently in the process of getting my first printed portfolio assembled and I really can’t wait to start marketing myself more effectively. Thank you so much for your honest opinion and making me feel excited about my work. I will definitely be booking more reviews in the future.”

Lisa and Alexa spent the day chatting to photographers, critiquing their folios and providing invaluable tips on how to market yourself in one of the toughest cities to make it. Held at the Great Eastern Bear gallery where our LPA Futures exhibition is currently on display, the day was a great success and everyone left with some great insights on the photography world.
Don’t forget that Lisa and the LPA team offer Portfolio Reviews on a limited basis as well as providing a pop-up agent service to photographers helping with everything from estimating to producing shoots.
