In this very special website / portfolio refinement event, our panel of top Creatives will help you understand what works for them, what doesn’t, and why.
• What makes an image strong enough to include on your site, and in your book?
• What’s the ideal way for you to reveal your unique photographic style?
• Why is image order / pagination so important?
• What elements should always be on your website homepage?
• What common mistakes should you avoid with your site?
• What common mistakes should you avoid with your portfolio?
• What are the best formats for portfolios?
Make a great first impression
We’ll also cover essential strategies for the best way to behave during in-person portfolio reviews:
• When you should let your images speak for themselves, and when should you engage in conversation?
• What aspects of your personality should you try to reveal, and which ones could work against your goals?
