Today I want to share with you my Portfolio Thursday – Episode 1. For all of you who didn´t see my post last week, click here to get more information about my project. What I would like to do is to review your music portfolio and help you to get a kick ass portfolio for yourself.
The aim is to learn from each other and get inspired by other music photographers that you probably haven´t known before. I am aware of this challenge, since everyone has another style and everyone likes different ways to photograph. Some of you might only use a tele photo lens to get tight head shots where others prefer ultra wide angle shots. And this is totally fine. I would like to focus on more general points like how is your portfolio organized, are there too many pictures that you are showing, how can you get a stronger composition in your concert photos and so on.
Therefore I want to discuss my portfolio on my site „How to become a Rockstar Photographer“ today (see video below). You´ll see that I separated my portfolio into „Concert“ and „Portrait“. It important for me to have a clear distinction between these photos. You´ll see that I only present 20 of my best concert pictures/music portraits. It doesn´t have to be the number 20. It canb be also 30, but I want you to understand why it shouldn´t be more. Imagine a busy music manager who wants to have a look at your online portfolio. If the loading of your page takes ages or he can´t find what he is looking for in the first moment you can be sure that this guy just closes your homepage browser window. Gone. So it´s important to keep everything simple and easy to find.
