PPP – Website
For my professional practice portfolio I have decided to create a website, which enables me to hold my photography work, showreels, personal information, and other projects I have worked on. This will show future employers the type of projects I have been involved in, my creativity and willing attitude to showcasing my work and skills.
I decided to use a simple website builder called Wix to create my website as I have looked into domain hosting and the costs are impractical for myself at the moment, and this simple site does the exact same job, however, I do take into consideration that the web address may not seem professional but at this stage it is only a slight technicality when looking at what I have created on my site.
I have tried to keep to a simple format and simple colours as I don’t want it to be overpowering, I just want the content to be looked at. I also used a standard font as other fonts can look unprofessional and tacky. I have chosen to use an image of me on the front page so that people know who I am, make sure they are looking at the right and can also see me working with equipment. The advantage of having a website is that you can update it at any time and any point and unlike a C.V you get to see the work undertaken visually. It also gives some free advertisement to the productions I have worked on and for, as I believe it is good work ethic to share and promote each others work which shows employers that I am not only capable of personal project management but that I am also a team player.
Here are a few screen shots of the website which you can visit at http://gpierr8.wix.com/gailenepierre:
