Online Photography Portfolios Review

Whether you’re a full-time professional photographer or a hobbyist looking to pick up photography jobs on the side, a good website is essential for showcasing you and your work.

In this video, Karl reviews the websites of various photographers working at different levels in different regions, all of whom volunteered to have their sites critiqued.

As he explores these online portfolios, Karl reveals the importance of developing a website that lets prospective clients know who you are and what you do.

He discusses elements such as design and layout, navigation, quantity and quality of images, whether or not to list your prices, which contact details to include, and much more.

  1. If I am involved in different genres of photography, do you suggest a website for each genre? Or is it possible to mix all in one portfolio with submenus and still create a powerful website?

    1. Hi, this largely depends on how you want to be percieved by your target market. If you think they won’t mind seeing the mixed the genres then it shouldn’t be a problem but if you feel for example that you wanted to shoot Advertising and Weddings then those two would definitely not go together as both audiences would be confused.
