Before You Build A Photographic Portfolio, Figure Out Your Photographic Identity

Let’s get something absolutely out of the way here: your Instagram page isn’t necessarily your portfolio. A photographic portfolio is a body of work that helps to let others know what kind of photographer you are. It’s a product that you’re capable of delivering. For example, Toyota’s portfolio includes the Camry and other cars. Peter Hurley’s portfolio includes headshots. Annie Leibovitz’s portfolio has portraits and editorial work. These are the products that we know that they’re capable of producing. And in the same way, a photographer need to tightly curate that portfolio, specialize (despite what some may tell you not to do, and they’re deadly wrong), and put forward images and services that really make them standout from all the rest.
