There are many ways to get your work seen and bring clients to your door
A website is the most convenient and effective way to share your portfolio with the world, but there are some traditional approaches that can also pay off:
Taking out paid adverts in local magazines or websites will drive potential clients to your online portfolio, particularly if you’re working in a ‘client-facing’ area such as wedding or portrait photography.
