Photographer, Model, makeup Artist? Get a Professional Portfolio Today
We now live in the internet-dominated world, which is filled with manipulated reviews, auto-generated likes and SEO pushed suppliers. As artists, it has become increasingly challenging to present a comprehensive professional portfolio that can stand out from the rest.
To showcase a comprehensive body of work and portfolios, a freelance photographer, cinematographer, makeup artist or Models commonly uses Facebook, Instagram, and other social media sites. Surely, there are multitudes of talent posted online. But why likes and Comments do not result and proportional Business?
Imagine your prospective client browsing through your Facebook albums and almost coming to a decision to hire you or even contact you to ask for rates. Then all of a sudden. a message or friend’s post distracts them and they click away from your page – forever!
It will take a long time for a dedicated prospect to find the perfect professional as well, as there is no comprehensive listing of artists in photography/videography-related professionals that they can scan easily. LinkedIn provided a platform for corporations of all industries to create Business Profiles but it lumps all businesses together and lacks all the equipment which an artist needs.
