Note from Photographers :

Banafsheh's' portfolio review is, in a word, AMAZING! I asked Banafsheh to help me assemble my portfolio when preparing to apply to art school. I didn't know it was going to be a 6-hour journey of self–discovery. We reviewed the images I had taken over the last few years and developed a portfolio I used to submit as part of my application package. As a result of this review, I received a $2500.00 scholarship based on the strength of my portfolio.

"This was my first portfolio review with Banafsheh, and it was one of the most productive & learning experiences I've ever had about photography. She helped me identify my strong points and how I can improve & build my skills around them. More importantly, it helped me realize why I shoot the way I do. This has not only helped me focus more on getting the right shot the first time but also challenged me and pushed me toward overcoming my boundaries. I hope she will see an improvement in my photos in the next review session. Thanks a lot, Banafsheh!!"

Working with you on my portfolio helped me step back and understand my work. When I came to you, my photography was all over the place, and talking about it and having you notice trends and a repeating style helped me realize what I want to pursue. Overall, the portfolio review was a great experience that was necessary for me.

Truly eye-opening!

The sessions helped me to see my work in such a different light.

I was able to take away great Lessons in crafting my art so that it better expresses myself by letting go of my inhibitions and attempting not to "overthink." To that end, this immediately translated into the form of my artistic statement, which was quickly composed after our initial conversation.
