Top 5 Tips You Need to Consider When Putting a Folio Together

– posted by Sally

Twelve years ago I began working with people to build, edit and design their folios. There was a real need for photographers and creatives to have a second pair of well-trained eyes to look over their work.

An independent, honest approach is how I work. It is all about the creative on the day we work together, listening to them and working through a plan of attack on how to best show their work, be it for folios, websites or exhibitions.

Giving constructive criticism on how their images work together, what their strengths and weaknesses are and how best to build a story around their work are some of the many topics we cover during our session.

1) Be individual in how you present your work.

2) Don’t put your work into sections eg: food, people, interiors, create an ebb and flow.

3) Put in the folio what YOU want to shoot,  you can never try to guess what others want to see.

4) Always include personal work so the viewer can see WHO you are and what you like to shoot.

5) Don’t show too much or too little work around 20 double spreads give or take works well.
