Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Nobody pays for a portfolio, part of Creating a Photography Portfolio.
- In the previous chapter, we talked about starting…with the end in mind.…We talked about vision and goals…and it was really exciting stuff.…Yet in this chapter we're going to transition our attention…towards coming up with a roadmap for success…so that we can actually arrive at that destination…that we've defined.…Now one of the first things to realize,…to create a successful roadmap is this.…Nobody will ever pay you to create a portfolio.…
In other words, it's on your own dime and your own time.…Now if you're a creator professional,…this means you actually need to take time off of work.…You have to take time away from making money…and invest the time in creating this thing.…And that's important to keep in mind.…And regardless of where you're at in life,…this is one of those things where you have to ask yourself,…well what kind of time can I afford?…When can I find some time to work on this thing?…When can I create and design and build this portfolio?…Maybe it's early in the morning or maybe late at night…or maybe you could use your lunch break…
