Portfolios How does one build a portfolio? Is having a website the same thing as having a portfolio? What pictures and how many should you include in your portfolio? I had a chance this past weekend to hopefully get involved in taking pictures of a documentary film making, but when he asked to send him my portfolio, i was like oh...i don't have one built up (like an idiot) and he looked at me like .... allrighty then. so help me prepare for the next opportunity.
