Dear Right Moves,
Do photographers still need a print portfolio? Really? As files are sent and evaluated digitally, the iPad would nicely replace those old expensive leather books from last century.

Although portfolios are not the preferred reference for creatives to access a photographer’s work, frequently, before the final decision about an assignment is reached, a printed portfolio will be required. Best to have one ready and one back up. Make certain your work is beautifully printed, curated, and updated. A poorly printed portfolio is worse than having none at all.
