Hello, I’m Evgeny Tchebotarev, co-founder and Chief Photography Officer of 500px. I also co-host the 500px Portfolio Reviews series, and I’m back again with a brand new episode. This series features critiques of selected photos on 500px from me and industry professionals—straight from 500px HQ. It’s a great way to get tips on improving your work, and sell more photos commercially. Could your photo be in here? Scroll down!

In this new episode, I sit down with the incredible Benjamin Von Wong, surreal artist and photographer. Watch as we review the works of 9 photographers, out of the 50+ who submitted their portfolios to us:

Thomas Fritz asks us for advice about staging
Polina Rabtseva asks about her post-production
Valerie Mrosek tell us, “Not only would I like to improve my photos technically, but I would also like to tell a deeper story, to put more meaning into my photos.”
JDL says, “My first real Photoshop composite I’ve ever done, any help he could give would be amazing!”
Kira Sanoja is, “Trying to understand marketing and art sales better.”
Matchbox D. Randrianarivelo asks about realism
Brandi Potter explains, “I’ve been working on my editing…”
Glenn Palacio would like his photo to be, “More Von Wong-ish in all levels.”
