Making photos is just the start: how do you decide which are your best ones? In this lesson, learn how to select the pictures that represent your style, and the best way to display them in a portfolio.
Your portfolio is a work of art—and a calculated marketing tool to get you more of the work and recognition you want. This lesson will help you formulate a vision and clarify what you want to get out of your portfolio. Do you want to get an interview? Or are you just trying to start a discussion with a gallery? We’ll help you set workable goals by learning how to evaluate your photographic strengths and weaknesses.
