In the boring old past, printed portfolios were a great way of showing off your still photographs, but any video you also wanted to show off had to be included and viewed separately from the main portfolio. Now, new technology is allowing photographers to embed video right into their portfolios, with a small LCD screen displayed right on the page.
Our Video in Print pages are actual pages with a video screen embedded into the page. They are a little thicker than the printed pages but nevertheless flip just like a portfolio page. There are several buttons on the Video in Print page that the viewer can push to see as many as five videos. We do not need to include CD’s at all and there is instant gratification. I design a page using some sort of imagery so the VIP feels like a seamless part of the portfolio. [#]
