Displaying your work

Today I looked at different ways people display their work. The usual deal with portfolio websites is a site with a few pages, one for the photographs, one for the ‘about me’ section and one with things like copyright, ways of contacting the photographer and other information.

However i’ve been looking at sites that have more of a interactive interface, or display their work in a different way to the norm.

Jeremy Cowart’s website shows how you can still have the fundamentals of photography portfolio website but have interesting features. His images are not all shown in the familiar linear format, but in a way that attracts the eye.

The drop down menus from the top help categorise his work and are animated in a way that makes the site stand out from a lot of other portfolio websites.

Matthew Mahon’s site also makes very good use of animation and makes use of the mouse. The audience can select what part of the site they wish to view by hovering the mouse of a different part of an image.

Looking at these sites gave me ideas about how I am going to design mine, by adding more interactive features, I can make my site more interesting to potential clients.
