    Oh! Did you write long drawn statements? I must've forgot to read them

    If your business depends on you, you don't own a business-you have a job. And it's the worst job in the world because you're working for a lunatic... You can't close it when you want to, because if it's closed you don't get paid. You can't leave it when you want to, because if you leave there's nobody there to do the work. You can't sell it when you want to, because who wants to buy a job?

    Ha! I think only for my endorsements. They didn't ask for SoP's when I did the initial CPP subs

    All I used was "senior portrait" or "business portrait" or "portrait of an individual" or "family portrait". Short and simple. Just finished uploading my images. Keeping my fingers crossed on this third try.

    quick question-
    when I'm breaking down the percentages, do I break down my portrait percentage to each category? I.E., seniiors are 20%, newborns are 20%, etc. Or do I just say , 60% portraits?

    Also, is it the number of sessions that I base this percentage on, or the total sales?

    I suggest categorizing Seniors, babies and families into one. "Portraits". Also, base it on sessions. At least that's how I did it.

    I was told to make a brief statement (as in 1 sentence) regarding the reason the image was made. i.e. Sitting commissioned by grandparents for the celebration of 18th birthday.
    I hope that isn't call for rejection!
    Do we have an indication of how many ports are being reviewed? I am a complete nervous nellie about this whole process which is not really like me. I realize the process of refining knowledge for the best standard of reproduction on demand is the essential standard by which we are judged as professionals but I really under estimated how important it is to me personally!
    I haven't felt this way since I applied to colleges! hahahha ; )

    Susan,

    I don't believe a portfolio will be rejected based on the statement of purpose UNLESS, the statement identifies the photographer. You want the reviewers to understand the reason the photo was taken and perhaps the conditions faced.
