My new portfolio book…
I have recently been working, between commissions, to produce a portfolio book of my work. More an overview than a comprehensive story. Not so straight forward, as I’ve really had to be quite objective and set aside some personal preferences, that may mean little to others. It’s 72 pages of work ranging from social and portrait photography, through to landscape food, sport and business photography. There are also sections on my Italian photography holidays, as well as both Suffolk and London photography workshops. Just click here to view.
This has made me reflect on what was ‘once upon a time’ involved in setting up a meeting to show an Editor or Art Director, what one could offer. And that’s before one factors in the time involved in presentation meetings, not to mention the physical discomfort of lugging around London a large and weighty A1 plus portfolio.
So now I have a portfolio of my photography to date. And if I wish to change or add new material as it happens, I can edit and do so within minutes. Only we, of a certain age can really appreciate the ‘miracle’ times we are living in. The times they have a-changed!
It’s purely ‘virtual’ at the moment, but once I’ve lived with it for a while and confident with my picture selection, it will go to print. And readers may then request a copy. In the meantime, although it’s work in progress, you may see it here.
