"As a professor, curator, fellow artist and director of photography festivals, I can offer creative advise, constructive and critical feedback as well as practical guidance to artists working in the broad field of contemporary fine art photography. This also involves marketing the project and finding the suitable means of promotion in relevant magazines.
My network in the domain of art photography is extensive, and I am very committed to helping artists progress by sharing my knowledge and experience.
In my capacity as a reviewer of portfolios, it is crucial to our common investment that the artist come prepared with some understanding of what I do and what I can offer."

I am always looking for new talents and interesting artists who are making special and unique work.
