As for me, I started the CT program last semester. So I still have some more to learn. But the things I have learned in the spring, I have really truly enjoyed. A portfolio in my opinion should have all of the work you are capable of doing. Also I believe one should learn different styles in order to show your client how versatile you can be and ultimately leave a lasting impression.

Things that I would include in my portfolio would be some sound editing I did a year ago in Nassau Community College. They have a Radio Production class that is really fun. I would also display some of my photography work and a blog that I worked on last semester. But unfortunately, I didn’t keep up with the blog. It was something I worked hard at because it’s something I wouldn’t mind doing for HBO Sports. In the end, your portfolio should include different way you’re able to put things together. This shows how well you work with different editing tools and programs.
Tim Tadder is someone I came across and I really liked his photographs. His work is something I would like to do as a career, among other things. He is known for his powerful portraits and high action intense sports imagery. His portfolio website is well organized and easy to navigate. When you go to his website, the first thing that comes up is a flash of his logo. Then it goes to the homepage where there is a slideshow of his work and on the left it give you all the options you need.
I am hoping to learn all of the skills and tools to have an appealing portfolio, to allow other people enjoy my work/projects. I believe a good portfolio should have some type of flow to it and it also needs to be organized. It needs to stand out and have a lasting impact in the person’s mind.
