As a professional photographer you probably already have learned that to get your foot in the door you have to do more than display your creative eye through the lens of a camera. In today's progressive world a person trying to get a leg up has to think outside of the box. In the past time, it was necessary for any professional artist to carry around his or her own personal portfolio. If you were a writer, it was necessary to have writing samples ready in case someone wanted to see what you had to offer. If you were an artist or musician the same rules applied. As a matter of fact, anyone in the field of arts was required to have something at the ready so it can be produced on demand.

Nowadays, having a portfolio is even more important than ever, even for those who are not in the field of arts. The major difference is that today's portfolio needs to reach a much wider range of people. Before you were lucky if you got to show your portfolio to just one person at a time. Today you may have to reach thousands at a time. How can you accomplish such a daunting task? This kind of range can only be achieved if you are forward thinking enough to develop your own online portfolio.

Building your own website today is the same as carrying around your own personal portfolio was 20 years ago. Online businesses have paved the way to promote your skills and talents like never before. With your own website you can be as creative and daring as you like, provided your efforts are aimed at your target market.

So, you are out there pounding the pavement in search of the next client. If you have the traditional, old-fashioned portfolio you may get to see one or two potential clients and show off your wares, but if you have your own website you demonstrate much more than your usual skills. Your clients will see a person that has stepped out of the traditional form of searching and used his creative energies to find that perfect match for a client/artist relationship. This kind of vision can translate into many good things that can work in your favor.

They can easily see more than a hand carried portfolio can show about you. For example, the design layout and your choice of colors will show them something about your tastes and personality in addition to your work samples. It can show them the real you and give them some idea of what kind of person you would be to work with.

Whether you are in search of a new business or just trying to rekindle old relationships, with an online portfolio website you will be able to update and include new work with just a few clicks on a keyboard. A few simple strokes can alert old clients to new skills and accomplishments without trying to reinvent the wheel. A client will be able to readily see that you can be a progressive and creative asset to them in many ways. Today the business world is changing at an incredible rate. To survive in business we all need to find ways to change with it.
