To get our perspective on the proper way of showcasing your portfolio here at PGN Agency, keep reading. Make Sure You’re Targeting the Right Demographic No matter what type of photography you specialize in, make sure you’re targeting the right demographic. If you’re a wedding photographer, you wouldn’t want to have too many images of flashy or crazy subjects. Customers from that demographic generally like clean looking images with light colors. Or if you’re a fashion photographer, you would want the crazier images in there that scream what fashion is all about. Be Selective When creating your portfolio, make sure to only have the best images and a small amount. You should only have about 8-12 images in your portfolio.

Eliminate everything that doesn’t have that wow factor. Then, get another opinion about which images you have selected that way you know they are the best of the best. Strategically Order your Images When a potential client is viewing your photography portfolio, you want to make sure they are left with a strong impression. Creating an order for...
