Honest photography feedback is rare.
Look anywhere on social media and you will see millions of comments that are basically identical. “Nice photo. Cool. Great capture. Wow. 👏👏👏.” These comments are so bland and useless that a lot of these services have been handed over to bots that turn comments into a kind of self promotion.
I want to put a stop to this. Submit now for insightful photography advice.
I’m Pat Beggan, a professional commercial photographer. I’ve been practicing photography and other digital art for over 15 years. I’ve been writing fiction and non-fiction for 20. I have been published in regional magazines and popular photography blogs, as well as operating my own blog about the art of photography and being an active member of the reddit photography community for several years.
I enjoy looking at the work of others and communicating what I see in the language of design, without ego.
I am a person who loves art and photography. I am willing to put myself out there and put your opinion of me on the line in order to help you advance your skills. You won’t be able to find this randomly on social media. I started cheapcritique.com so I could provide photography advice straight to the people who want it the most.
Oh my gosh thank you so much. This is by far one of the best portfolio reviews I’ve gotten, and I can’t express how glad I am for it. I feel like a lot of millennial photographers shy away from giving criticism and it just makes it that much harder to progress, which means your advice is just that much more valuable. Thank you again
Fantastic, honest and detailed feedback. Thanks very much, I have a bit more thinking to do!
Thank you so much, I really appreciate the honest feedback. Processing and color is what I’ve been trying to improve the most for the past few months. I agree about those photos you linked – I was iffy about putting all of them up in the first place and now you’ve confirmed it. Thanks again for the great feedback.
Thank you so much! You really are a saint for contributing such in depth commentary and suggestions. I hugely appreciate it!!
Thank you, really happy with your critique, I appreciate the time you took to write this. Made me really satisfied with the work I do. Thank you
I offer portfolio review.
For a small fee I will look over a selection of your images and tell you my impressions. I will tell you what I think is strong and should be enhanced and what is weak and needs to be rethought, using concrete terms and concepts from design and art that can be researched and practiced. Honest photography feedback and useful photography advice.
My fee is $20 for a minimum of 500 words of writing.
When it comes to a critique, what you agree with is just as important as what you don’t. It’s a hinge to understand what other people see when they look at your work. You need not take my suggestions, but hearing them will give you something to react towards and consider. It makes you more conscious of the directions you choose with your art. This is the value of a strong critique.

If you receive a critique and you feel it has done absolutely nothing for you and provided no value, I will do everything in my power to make it right. I want people to walk away with a critique that helps them improve as artists. I promise that you will receive an insightful and honest critique.
