Portfolio Review

"Tough Love" is Now "Photo Makeover"


On-line, I've been helping photographers make better images for about two years with my Tough Love Portfolio Review sessions. 



On my live workshops and seminars, I've been offering photo advice to photographers for more than 20 years.


I'm still giving tough love during my on-line sessions, but after follow ups with the photographers, I see that the end result is often a photo makeover and a business makeover. So, Photo Makeover is the new name for my on-line sessions.




I offer these one-on-one photo sessions in your home via Skype. I can help you with your photography and Photoshop/Lightroom techniques – and of course the business side of photography.

I am very honest in these sessions. See the comments below to see just how honest I am with photographers.


Here's how it works: 
1) You shoot me an email and we set a time. I am on NY time. 
2) You prepay with PayPal. $95 for the one-hour, private session.
2a) PayPal account: ricksammon@mac.com.
3) You send me a link to your work.
4) You tell me your time zone.
5) You tell me your goals.
6) Half-hour follow up sessions are $40 . . . if you want one.



If you live in the U.S., I'll include an autographed copy of my book, Exploring the Light as part of the session. Shipping and custom forms makes international shipping difficult.

Why choose me to review your work? Well, I have been involved with photography since 1978, when I began interviewing some of the photography greats. I have also written 36 books and have 9 apps. Plus, I do lots of on-line training, lead workshops and give seminars. And, before turing pro, I worked in the an advertising/PR agency for 10 years, so I have some experience with marketing your work. I also teach social media marketing.

Explore the light,
