photography?

pokie's picture

All the sudden, I've been given several opportunities to assist other photographers. I have always done photography as a hobby, but I just got a brand new fancy camera and now the requests are coming in like mad for me to help others! I just got the camera this week and already 2 requests to help. One is a one time thing and the other will be an ongoing thing-- helping assist with weddings.
Obviously, it will be fun as I love Photography but, it will also look awesome on my resume. I guess I better start a photography portfolio. How do you add photography to your GD portfolio or do you have a separate portfolio for your photography? I kind of ignored this part in my portfolio class in college as I never thought I'd need to know!
Ironically, this is all happening as I start a Masters program. Something is going to have to give. I'm not that stretchy.

i think you have to decide

i think you have to decide what role it's going to play in your portfolio/career.

if it's "part" of what your whole portfolio is, i see no problem with it being a separate section of your normal portfolio (print | ID | web | photography).

if it's a separate career path and you want it to stand alone, maybe you want a separate site (or maybe subdomain, like photography.pokie.com).

you need to think about it not only from that perspective (i.e., your perspective), but from a potential client's perspective. how do you want *them* to view your photography work?

Agreed

Ideally, you'd want one each way for flexibility to fit the situation. If you plan on doing wedding/event photography as a side thing, that's a different style than aking photos of products to put in catalogs and adverts or photographing models for perfume ads in magazines. There's different requirements for each, right?
