Eyeist – affordable portfolio reviews and why it's a "good" idea!

Some of you may recall I mentioned this wonderful new portfolio service Eyeist when they launched a couple of months ago headed up by Allegra Wilde, along with Jesse & Micah Diamond – and as we’re heading towards the end of the year, it’s a great time to get some feedback on your work in preparation for the new year. For my own existing Chatterbox clients, don’t forget you can always book a session on Eyeist with me as your reviewer, in addition to any of our other consulting or marketing sessions.

I recently posted a new “testimonial” on my Eyeist Reviewer Profile from New York-based photographer Paul B. Goode, whom I saw recently at the ASMP NY commercial portfolio reviews. This testimonial is a beautiful example of why I do what I do – this kind of feedback warms my heart and makes it all worthwhile! To read the full and very flattering journal entry “The Decisive Moment” that Paul wrote following that evening – please click here.
