Singapore-based photographer Lauryn Ishak worked with us on a print portfolio several years ago. The results looked great, and as time marches on, Lauryn has been seriously busy! Since that print edit, she’s moved a few times, got married, and shot countless assignments. After all of that, she reached out to us and said she was ready for a new website and a refreshed print portfolio. While the first book was aimed at editorial travel clients, she wanted to switch angles and build an online and print portfolio that spoke to more commercial, hospitality clients.
When Portland-based photographer Gregory Pierce was working with one of our marketing specialists on marketing implementation, the subject of a PDF portfolio was brought up by some of the clients they were contacting.
