Every two years FotoFest in Houston, as part of its big international Biennial, offers photography based artists an opportunity to receive honest feedback on their work from more than a dozen visiting art professionals. Early registration begins on June 17 for the March 2016 portfolio review, and FotoFest is promising artists at least 16 meetings apiece, plus other VIP initiatives.
