Rob Haggart, the former director of photography for such notable magazines as Men’s Journal and Outside Magazine, has developed a simple approach to photography portfolios with A Photo Folio. He’s made creating a very elegant portfolio a matter of uploading photographs. Erik Dungan and Mark Caston, of BigFolio.com are also in on the project.
So far, A Photo Folio is providing two very different designs to photographers using the site. The first is a fairly minimalist design that nonetheless provides a very sleek portfolio for a photographer. The second has more color, along with more attitude. If I had to make a guess, I’d say that the first design is very ‘Men’s Journal’ while the second is more ‘Outside Magazine.’ Either way, the site is definitely looking to provide options for professional photographers.
