This is a wonderfully well attended event, both students and faculty. It’s a intense experience in a very beautiful location, and there’s a lot of great conversation amongst everyone! It’s quite fun!

Freshly out of college and confused about what I wanted, I found strong connections and shared passions with my reviewers. I also received an enormous amount of information and feedback about what paths I could pursue. I realized that I had a lot of work left to do before I would see results, but finding a goal to work towards is a great start and Chico gave me that.

The laid back vibe and scenic backdrop made for an ideal late winter get away. It was an inspirational treat to have seen so much great work and to met so many great photographers!
— Melissa Cantenese

The portfolio review gave me insight into the thought process of respected photo editors and art directors, and provided a splash of what visual creatives need most yet rarely get: fresh, critical eyes on their work. And the Chico atmosphere has a clarity that accommodates this.
