Morning Peeps,

A friend of mine wants a nice quality portfolio book for her daughters images, something along the lines of 8 x 6 upto 10 x 8 max.

She has a range of images of both portrait and landscape on a disk, I was thinking of something like a wedding book where you just push the prints in, but obviously not of that quality, just something decent but not astonomical price wise.

Had a browse around but not coming up with a lot of ideas.

Anyone point me in the right direction or suggestions appreciated.

Cheers

Graham

In the olden days, before internet, models used to lug round HUGE portfolio books...still have mine sad

If you wanted an actual printed photo Book, as they have for weddings...then...

or for loose leaf photographs to change over from time to time,  then...


This is smart -

This may not really be what you are looking for, but I use Mapac portfolio books/cases, although I think A4 is the smallest they do.

That's right Graham...

I usually buy my portfolio books with a soft cover from nearest stationers...model's don't need to pay a fortune for a portfolio book, it's what's INSIDE, in the way of good pictures that counts...Have seen many a tatty well used cover, have amazing photographs inside...winkBut for up-market castings, yep, a smart book counts as well...cheeky
