    Your thoughts please on setting up a portfolio for display purposes!

    I want to start a portfolio. Approx 20-30 images is what I would be wanting
    to put into a portfolio. What I am looking for is something to display my
    photos in to show potential clients. I am thinking of having the prints at
    12x8" but possibly have them mounted on 11x14" matt boards. I want the
    prints to be clearly visible in sleeves so that they are easy to see and
    also easy to take out for viewing or updating/changing images in the
    portfolio. I then want these images displayed in an attractive (possibly
    leather bound) binder that is zipper closed!

    So my question to you guys is... How do you display a portfolio of images
    and/or if my idea seems sound, where would be the best place to look for
    such things?

    Cheers Adam

    Get yourself an A3 ring binder and some of the clear plastic sleeves -
    stationary shop. Mount your prints to fill the sleeves. would suggest
    that you keep all the prints mounted in the same direction even if it
    means making the print smaller. (Photographs in a portfolio should stand
    on there own irrespective of size.) But its a bummer if you have to keep
    rotating the folder to look at each print.

    Hi Adam,
    you could play the photos on a laptop to your potential clients.
    Or mabe Burn DVD's and you then could whip up a bit of cool funky music
    and get the atmosphere pumping while your photos rotate.
    Hope this helps

    If you want a professional looking solution that costs a fair bit more than
    your average ring binder, check out www.albox.com.au. They mail order all
    over Australia. Archival products - the advantage is they have 12x9" sheets
    that fully accept 12x8" prints, unlike the old ring binder where a portion
    of the print sticks out the top. The standard option is a plastic enclosed
    portfolio box.
