A portfolio is as important for an artist as a driving license is for a driver; more exactly, unless you have a portfolio, you don’t exist. However, having a portfolio isn’t equivalent to receiving the consideration of others and to being assaulted by clients. Nowadays, the Internet is full of amazing portfolios and people have practically unlimited solutions. Under these circumstances, only a wonderful portfolio exhibiting amazing items has a better chance of getting noticed.
Photographers’ portfolios are special projects- the main dilemma is how to create a design that lets the viewer focus fully on the uploaded works, but in the same time to be eye-catching, otherwise what better way to attract Internet users? There are many other aspects that are extremely difficult to solve, such as the size of the uploaded images or the manner in which one could create a “more responsive” website. It’s simple- a better resolution means a bigger file size, but this isn’t recommended. Also, the multitude of gadgets puts the designers in trouble: how to better scale the images for every type of operating system or screen size?
Anyway, the web design community seems to have solutions for this special kind of portfolios. The next themes are suitable for photographers’ portfolios, but of course these may be customized for various purposes. Everyone will notice by studying these that such portfolios have many similar features: huge images, impressive page transitions, bold typography and a modern look. Enjoy the themes and it will be great to share the post with your friends!
