How to create a wildlife photography portfolio. 

What to include in a wildlife photography portfolio. 

When putting together your wildlife photography portfolio, your inclination might be to include every potential piece of work, but as we’ve mentioned, this lack of focus results in a cluttered portfolio that doesn’t keep visitors lingering over your images. Here’s what we recommend instead:

Why build your portfolio with Zenfolio?

Frequently asked quesitons.

This is where having a professionally designed website can come in handy. While you’re the expert at capturing the image, designers are experts at displaying that image visually. With a professional template, you ensure that images are large enough with plenty of white space surrounding the image to ensure the viewer isn’t distracted. Refraining from using excessive text, colors, or other design elements will also help. To really capture the beauty of your photo, it should be the star of the show. 

As mentioned above, we don’t recommend adding too many elements to your imagery, including text. This can be distracting. Having said that, in some instances, knowing the location of the shoot can be of interest. In this case, a tastefully placed caption to accompany the image can be nice. If you want to expand further on your imagery, we suggest sharing details on your blog (which you can easily create with Zenfolio.) 

Having people appreciate your work is flattering, but at the end of the day, if your main objective is to make a living from your passion, you need to make your availability and services clear and easy to locate. With this in mind, it’s essential for photographers to create a contact page. In addition, Zenfolio allows you to go a step further by having a direct booking/availability page. This will give potential clients quick insight into your current pricing and availability without even having to contact you. The more seamless it is to work with you, the easier it will be to obtain clients. 

There is an element of personal preference to consider here. For some, having one page that allows potential clients to scroll through an entire body of work is preferred. For others, they’ll opt for a simple flip-through method that displays images one at a time. There are also wildlife photographers who might combine these two ideas, having dedicated web pages for different projects. The choice is yours, but as mentioned, we would recommend avoiding overwhelming the client with too many images. You’ll likely find that organizing your images by project keeps things visually appealing, while also ensuring organization. 

You’re in good company.
