Tips for Portfolio Photography

How to quickly and easily build a photography portfolio that will take you from hobbyist.
61. How important is a strong ending
Do not put weak images in the back of the book, ever. Leave us with the memory of a great image; do not make us turn back to the cover image because the last image cast so much doubt on your whole portfolio that we suddenly feel like we were wrong to be optimistic based on the front of your book.
What is the appropriate size for a portfolio? How much does it vary depending on purpose?
Not so huge that handling it is a back breaker, but big enough to do your work justice. Print size is important; making a choice about the edges of the pages is also critical. Look at well designed photo books you will see a lot of either a full bleed blast of borderless imagery on a big page, or a huge amount of white space around a small image. Are your images loud or soft? Gentle or brash? Make the book size and design consistent with the content.
62. What are the benefits of a print portfolio vs a digital one
Every editor I know still says that the print is the final product of photography, and Ive heard most have them mumble something like If I see one more iPad portfolio, Im gonna throttle someone Electronic images and the internet are convenient, but to some, they are not beautiful. They are not organic, and you cant touch and hold them and put them on your shelf because you love the cool little Chinese puzzle box that unfolds like a treasure on your shelf. Just make sure that your prints are up to exhibition standards.
Nevertheless, if youre under a deadline, have to get a portfolio out, and dont have time to make prints, dont let stop you run over with an iPad. Just get it out there.
