What Is a Photography Portfolio?

Read Time:1 minLanguages:

As a photographer, images are just the start. How do you decide which are your best photographs? How do you selectively choose the best that represent your style, and then what’s the best way to display those in a portfolio to someone who may not be familiar with your work?

In this lesson, we look at what a portfolio actually i— it can take many forms. You might be pitching for the type of work you want in the future, or you might be using it as a tool to demonstrate your abilities. You might even choose to have more than one portfolio: digital, printed, both! We’ll help you choose the right ways to show off your work.
