nineteensixtyeight is a photography platform supporting an international group of emerging artists, offering mentoring sessions to photographers working at a variety of levels, producing original written and visual content, curating exhibitions and creative projects, cultivating cultural partnerships, and selling limited edition prints.

Eyes in Progress has been offering its own unique mentoring service for the last four years, which connects photographers with experts such as curators, gallery directors, editors, artistic directors, and publishers to get feedback on their work, edit their images and improve their general approach on photography.

Led by Isabella Brancolini and Elizabeth Breiner of nineteensixtyeight, this webinar seeks to draw on the combined experience of the two platforms, touching upon common questions that have arisen within mentoring sessions over the last several years. The webinar may touch upon topics such as editioning considerations, navigating printing costs, balancing commercial and artistic identities, and more. We will ask photographers to submit questions during registration that we will aim to answer where possible over the course of the webinar.
