Photoblog failure, time for an actual portfolio

Five months ago, I decided to make BryanVillarin.com my dedicated photo blog. That partially caused me to neglect All Narfed Up.

Neglect == bad

I’m going back to using All Narfed Up to post anything I want.

Bryan Villarin Photography (proudly powered by Zenfolio) currently has about 1,000 photos viewable from the homepage. If I’d rank them from 1 to 5 (5 being awesome), they’d range from 3 to 5.

What’ll you do with Bryan Villarin.com?

That’ll be my portfolio. I’ll aim to display my best work. I think I’ll stick to the following genres: portraits, weddings, concerts, bands (promotional), street photography, and fine art.

As for the posts, they’re not getting much traffic. (Beyond my biz card, I don’t emphasize BryanVillarin.com too much.) I’ll most likely move them to All Narfed Up.

Is 15-20 photos each genre too much?

Problem: I need to select my best photos for each genre. 🙂

Would you like to help? Please go to Bryan Villarin Photography. For each genre from the homepage, select your favorite photos, and share them with me.[2. Long explanation, but it’s simple – I promise. If you hover over a photo in thumbnail view, a little black circle will appear. Then, you’ll see “Add to Favorites.” (In single photo view, right-click the photo, then “Add to Favorites.”) After you click that, “My Favorites” should appear in the upper left corner of the website. Clicking that will display the thumbnails of your selections. On the right, there’s a “Share” button. Rename the Favorites set title with the genre and fill out the rest of the form. Finally, click “Share” at the bottom right of the form.]

If you sift through at least two genres, I want to give you something. To show my appreciation, I’ll:

  1. make a “Thank You” page on my website and list your name/website[2. Once the portfolio website is up, of course.].
  2. send a coupon code for 20% off any print order over $50 USD (up to $200).

Thanks for your help!
