New This Spring

Hoping you will sign up. Please share with your friends and colleagues.

For immediate release:

Photographer Neal Rantoul to hold one-on-one portfolio reviews this spring in Acton.

Widely known career photographer and artist Neal Rantoul will be conducting one-on-one in-person portfolio reviews and project consultations at his new studio this spring in Acton, MA.

Want feedback on a new body of work? Have an idea but not sure where to start? Looking for granting or funding? Working on a book that needs editing? Believe you have work that is strong but need help finding your audience? Need feedback on a series or help with sequencing?

Join Neal for a discussion of these and any other photography-related issues.

Neal Rantoul is a career artist and teacher with over 40 years of experience looking at work and advising on its quality, efficacy, and ability to connect with others. Neal is retired as head of the Photography Program for thirty years at Northeastern University and taught at Harvard University for thirteen years as well. With numerous national and international exhibits to his credit over his career, Rantoul continues an active schedule of making new work and bringing past works to wider recognition.

Since retiring ten years ago, he has taught workshops, given lectures, published books, exhibited his work, and held one-on-one sessions with photographers.

Schedule and costs: Initial one-on-one sessions of 1 to 1½ hours with Neal are $100 with subsequent meetings at $150/hour. Generally, meetings are held over the workweek during normal business hours at his studio in Acton. While understanding that some are reticent to meet in person due to Covid-19, Neal is fully vaccinated and boosted, and all safety protocols will be observed.

Neal writes “I believe I can help photographers reach their objectives and that I can respond to their need for clarification on their work. Very often photographers don’t know what the response to their work is. This is often because too few have seen it, or their audience is less than candid. With so many years looking at work I can provide a clear-headed response in a supportive and positive manner while helping with logistical and aesthetic considerations. Got that big project sitting in prints under the bed, unseen and unknown? Or have an idea but are not sure how to proceed? I believe I can help you.”
