Show Your Work

If you read my previous post, you'll know that I applied at TomasinoWeb (online publication of our university) as a photographer but there's no result yet (or maybe I didn't qualify for the interview). For the first requirement though, they asked us to bring a creative portfolio. I really crammed this because I thought they'll just ask for a "link" not a printed one. I did everything -from designing to finding a place where they can print this- in just 2 days!

I decided to make a simple yet unique portfolio. This may look confusing at first because it's a 4-fold layout. It's the outside and inside part respectively. Printing cost me a total of P312.00 including the individual photos that I'll show you a little later in this post.


Luckily, my friend Lea suggested a shop that can print on large papers without damaging the quality! I got mine printed at XPrint Trinoma. The original size of my portfolio is 10x10", they don't have that size (as I expected) but they printed it on a 12x18" instead and cut it for me! And ta-da!


When you open it, you'll see my little bio and achievements (?) hehe


And for the highlight, you can open it again to see my shots!!!!!


Then I noticed it was a little boring leaving it like that, right? So I went to another shop to have my individual shots printed. Here they are:


Do you think my portfolio can grab people's attention? :)
