Photographer’s Foot Friday – Portfolio Reviews Under Way!

First of all I hope everyone out there is having a wonderful 2018 so far, and that it is a year full of new experiences!

Thanks to the wonderful medical staff that performed the surgery, the foot surgery I had this passed December to correct a lingering issue couldn’t have gone any better. Not accustomed to having caffeine-propelled Art around at all times for weeks on end, my staff as well as the local market clerks who see me coming on my knee-scooter (pictured!) can attest to how quickly I’ve bounced back and gotten my wheels under me. (I’ve been scolded by said market clerks a few times now, but I’m quite the skilled scooter driver, I can assure you!)

Thankfully we launched Portfolio Reviews in January, and any customers whom have purchased them will start to receive their feedback over the coming days. I can’t thank you enough for submitting your photos; as a workaholic it’s been great to turn my attention to one of the things I enjoy most about my workshops and seminars, and that is putting my eyeballs on your work and applying my experiences to help improve it. I look forward to all the upcoming live Skype conversations we have scheduled as well!

I’ll be easing back into things in the coming weeks, and look forward to getting back on the road. Sending you all best wishes for a year full of exciting endeavors. Feel free to leave a comment about how you plan to explore your creative side this year!

Introducing Portfolio Reviews by Art Wolfe!

I am pleased to announce that beginning in January of 2018, I’ll be providing Portfolio Reviews to those interested in having me take a look at your photography work and provide constructive feedback! Among the many requests we’ve had, reviews come up most often – and given that the critique process has long been a part of our workshops that I look forward to, it only made sense to offer this service.

As you may know, I approach photography from the perspective of having had classic arts training, graduating with a bachelor’s degree in fine arts and art education from the University of Washington in 1975. Receiving and participating in the critique process with peers and instructors was an invaluable asset for my development as an artist, and the art of photography is no different.

We hope to accommodate anyone interested in having their work reviewed by offering a trio of packages and perks:


  • 5 images reviewed
  • MP3 Recording of my critique of your work
  • 10% off any future Photography As Art seminar


  • 12 images reviewed
  • MP3 Recording of my critique of your work
  • 20% off any future Photography As Art seminar
  • Free Book – “The Art of the Photograph”


  • 15 images reviewed
  • LIVE Skype conversation regarding your photographs
  • 30% off any future Photography As Art seminar
  • Free Book – “Photographs From the Edge”

Check out the Portfolio Review page for more information. I look forward to seeing everyone’s work in 2018!

Creative Live: “Another Look” with Art Wolfe – 11/27

I am thrilled to announce that I’ll be teaming up with Creative Live once again to present another online seminar! This time around, I’ll be critiquing user-submitted nature photos and making post-processing adjustments to maximize the visual impact of each image. You’ll gain valuable insight into many of the techniques I put into practice utilizing the adjustments that shooting RAW provides.

The free live broadcast will be on Monday, November 27th from 9 AM to 12 PM, PST. If you can’t make that date and time, you can purchase the seminar for a limited time discounted price – so head on over to Creative Live and sign yourself up. You can also submit your own wildlife, landscape, abstract nature, or travel images that could possibly be selected to be part of the broadcast!

This presentation comes on the heels of announcing that beginning in 2018, I’ll be providing my own critiques through my website. We already have several people on the list to be notified when the purchase and submission process is live – get yourself signed up today! Details will be coming in the next couple of weeks.
