UPDATE: if you’re reading this post now…The Portfolio Edition of #cjLIVE with Allegra Wilde is TODAY 11:00 Seattle Time, 2pm NYC, 19:00 London! You can also win a portfolio review from one of the world’s best…
Don’t miss, details below.Please mark your calendar, tell your friends, and join me Tuesday, December 6th [details below] for a mission critical episode of chasejarvis LIVE: The Portfolio Edition. How to choose, create, cultivate the #1 thing that gets you hired.
You know I talk a lot about how getting hired to shoot photos – commercial, editorial, portrait, wedding – all of it, is about the whole package…your work, your personality, your vision, you drive, your business and communication skills, yada yada. BUT I’ve also said it before that without a great portfolio you won’t get hired by anyone. Period. The proven, demonstrated ability to create top notch work and display it in a pleasing way is 100% mission-critical to getting hired. It’s the must-have, bare-minimum before a prospective client even starts looking at anything else.
So then why are we creatives so BAD at choosing and organizing our work? And why are we so BAD at knowing what drives us, what’s a good photo from a bad photo, and what should we be focusing on? Relax – we’re coming to your rescue on the next chasejarvis LIVE with world-renowned creative coach & portfolio reviewer, Allegra Wilde of Eyeist.com.
