In January, I will be meeting with the editor-in-chief of my local newspaper. I've been given such a rare opportunity though a family friend. They're looking for more staff photographers, for 2010, and I was given this chance. My question is this. How do you prepare a portfolio properly? Other than having photographs to show your BEST work, how do you prepare the portfolio? Are there any books to providing information or any good online sites? This will be a photojournalism type portfolio so artistic photographs are typically ignored/unimportant, correct?
