How to Start A Photography Portfolio


Do you have a bundle of good pictures but don’t know where to start a photography portfolio? Think about what you should put in and how big it really should be? You've viewed your supporters, colleges and pupils with photography portfolio’s with covers with all sorts of materials from stainless steel to plastic, and leather? They may have an magnetic and fancy covers that are commonly very expensive but not so functional for a beginner like you. No worries. Never ever judge a book by its cover? Well it’s true; a standard black plastic cover works fine for exhibiting your photography portfolio. It's not what's on the outside but what's on the inside that counts, right?


You’re in all likelihood best bet is to stay with a plain black plastic cover and form on perfecting your photos inside. You really don't need external decoration on your portfolio since putting stickers and various designs all over it makes you look unprofessional and unprofessional. This is not your family scrapbook, right? This is supposed to be the best representation of your most treasured photography work.


As for the sizing, it really counts on what size the bulk of your photos are. Don't go any bigger then 8×10. Your photographs are not this big so smaller sizes work well too. But remember that you need to make sure that the theme of your photos is representive of your work or you might come in with an oversize portfolio for photos that look 4×6.

Starting, you need to be careful to organize and look over your digital photos. Don't just put anything that you think might work into your photography portfolio. Try to organize them by theme since it will give the reviewer a sense that you can work with different theme’s have an overall idea of how to make many photo’s pop from one assignment
