Hello,

A portfolio should be a living thing - it should grow with you. There is no reason why you shouldn't start it now. However, in five years time if you are not embarassed by your current pictures - give up!:wink:

Not where I thought I'd end up
No reason not to... no age limits... And you're not to young to start working or at least thinking about working...
And there's nothing wrong with your photos - I believe what Fuddy meant was strive (and expect) to grow better with time...

For me, creating my initial portfolio was horrible because I had to wittle almost 30,000 photos to 20. If you don't have that many photos, you shouldn't have that hard of a time. Pick 50 that you really like, then wittle it down to 35. After that, bring your photos to an art teach or a photographer and have them help you wittle it down to 20. It will be painful but extremely rewarding in the end.
