Why Every Photographer Needs a Portfolio?

If someone asks you where can they see your photos, you can tell them your website URL and potentially gain a new client. It’s a must-have for any photographer who wants to succeed in the industry.

A portfolio is also part of your personal branding these days. Beautiful photos require a perfect-matching website to compliment. Would you frame a beautiful photo with an ugly frame? I don’t think so!

How to Choose Photos for Your Portfolio?

There is no need to put ALL of your photography on your new portfolio website. Try to be selective and choose only the best shots. People don’t have time to scroll over 1000 photos of the same subject/location; they want to see how you work in different locations, with different subjects and maybe genres.
