Creating a Photography Portfolio For Galleries
If you are interested in submitting your work to galleries then a basic image library simply won’t cut it. Photography Galleries often want to guide their visitors on some type of journey. That journey will be dictated by the theme of the photographs in your portfolio. The majority of galleries will not allow for a random submission of “best of’s”. They love to categorize and organize in terms of theme and genre.
Due to this you’ll need to organize your photographs by theme. Themes can range from specific subject matter such as political issues or family issues to technical categorization such as black and white, landscapes and so on. How you organize your photographs for your gallery portfolio is up to you but ideally you’re looking for 10-20 photographs which are categorized by a theme of your choice that would be of thematic interest to the galleries you’ll approach with your work.
