A photography portfoliocan help give insight into your skill and competency in your craft if you are just starting out. It pays to take the time to put together your own portfolio, but what exactly should you put in it? This can depend on a variety of things but is largely determined by your target audience and the kind of position or job you are being interviewed for.

If the work that you will be doing is not centered around any theme then the best that you can do is to showcase your overall talent. Only your best work should be considered for inclusion and then arranged according to specific categories or themes. So in order to have a structured presentation while displaying your work, make sure you have separate sections for black and white photography, nature shots, portraits, or any other theme or category that can be clearly identified for what it is.

Also, if you have an abundance of works, you might need to consider making multiple portfolios each with a theme of their own. Only include works specific to a central theme if you have a target audience that requires it. So if a couple approaches you for a wedding photography job or if you specialize in weddings, your portfolio should only be a compilation of wedding-related photography.
