Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Clarify and define your vision, part of Creating a Photography Portfolio.
- [Instructor] Earlier I mentioned that a portfolio…can be tool which gives us the ability…to say more with less.…And as we seek to accomplish this…it's helpful to begin to think about our own…vision for the portfolio.…It's helpful to ask the question,…well, what is your vision for this thing…that you're going to create?…Now when it comes to portfolios we tend to think of them…as having this really big focus:…this is a collection of my work,…it's a website, it's a book of prints.…Yet, what I've found is that in order to clarify…and deepen your vision…it's actually helpful to begin to think about portfolio…in more of a multi-faceted way.…
What if a portfolio actually had many different aims…and many different goals?…Now what do I mean by this?…What I mean is what if my portfolio isn't just…something that will be viewed on the web…or on a mobile phone or in a box of prints?…What if my portfolio maybe even isn't those things?…What if it isn't a book or a website?…What if it is not a gallery?…What if my portfolio is not a marketing tool?…
