I was just thinking about a Web critique for a graphics design company with a portfolio page. We have lots of community members involved with graphics, images, designs, layouts, and so on. All of them know they need examples of their work----a portfolio.
Now imagine this: You`re a fashion photographer having some success in the Midwest. You`ve decided to go to New York and become a world-famous photographer. You`ve brought along your portfolio.
When you arrive in the Big Apple, you go to one of the leading fashion houses. You walk in the front door, leave your portfolio with the security guard at the Information island, and go home.
That`s the way to do it, right?
Is a portfolio only a quick presenting of some examples of your work? Is that all you have to do, just show that you did this, did that, and did this other thing, then go home?
Or is a portfolio your sales pitch?
