I took advantage of the "Portfolio" Drop-In, to discuss my portfolio / business image.
Quite a few interesting points came up:
We discussed changing my Business card to a more generic version. At the moment, I have "DougStevensPhotography" - which has a very Somerset / Weston Based image on it. And I have "Skookian" - which has a generic "Street" style to it.
I'm going to continue with my two distinct versions, but also look into creating a simple "Photography" one, for general clients. This will have a simple logo, and will not be aimed at any one specific genre. I'll continue with the QR code on the back, as I like that.
We agreed on a simple Landing page, and I'll work on that for my next major update. I'll modify www.dougstevensphotography.co.uk as such.
We discussed a more general portfolios, but she liked the four distinct branches.
She also discussed a form of "Fusion" of DougStevensPhotography and Skookian, so ANY client has one point of contact.
I've historically worked to about 20 images per portfolio (As I've historically worked to "Panel" sets.), but she reckons I only need 3-4.
I'm kinda confused with this. As I'm such an eclectic photographer, I would think it's near impossible to condense my portfolio down to a smaller version.
More to follow.
Well. Here goes. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
