in a recent thread an OP asked questions about building a portfolio. some posters gave advice, some was old, some was new ... maybe this thread could be a how to make a good portfolio stucky thread ? no more than 10 images, some say 15 others say 20 ? some say the images should all be one large series, like a photo essay, others say it should just have your best work, nothing really in common because it IS a series of your best work ... but no art. if you were going to make a portfolio to go to art school, technical photography college, whatever (or even a job portfolio ) what would you include and how would you present it? is genre work, not a generalist portfolio OK or a faux pas ? i know there are people who teach art here on apug, what sort of advice do you have for someone putting together a post graduate ( college level or beyond ) portfolio of their work ? and how should it be presented website? self published book? pressbook? matted/drymounted/overmat in a clamshell portfolio box ? or something totally unique?
