Outstanding Online Portfolio Galleries for Portrait Photographers

The most difficult thing for me is a portrait. You have to try and put your camera between the skin of a person and his shirt. – Henri Cartier-Bresson

It is perhaps this difficulty in portrait photography, that one makes it deserve only the best when it comes to showcasing your work.  Given that the whole essence is to communicate something about the people in the portraits – such as their personality, it is vital that this personality is not lost in translation – that from a photograph in print to a photograph in digital.

As such, for portrait photographers, the gallery on their online portfolio site is next to godliness. Or rather, God itself!

What can you do about Piracy?

Although as a photographer, it is never a good news. While you can't stop uploading images and miss out on all the exposure internet gives you, there's no denying that there are 'pirates' on the internet who can illegally download and replicate your work without your permission. Therefore, it's very important to protect all your work that's online.
