all your pictures, any notes about it. really just present your work and show what you have to offer. if you want you can message me and i can helo you decide what or how to oraginse it
HOW you present it will depend entirely up to you. Many people simply print and mount their favourite photos on board and keep the boards together in a folder. That's quite good as you can add annotations either to the board or to the back of the board - and you can adjust which photographs/collections to include and change the order to meet the requirements of different universities (or even just to add in new work/take out things you no longer like). You could easily use A3 boards with photos that are A4 size without it becoming too faffy to hold/talk about. Some people add some holes and use treasury tags or similar to turn their boards into an ordered book.

In addition some sort of sketchbook/development work is usually well received or even specially requested.*http://www.studentartguide.com/artic...book-ideas*has some ideas/examples that might help you to present your work in this way.

Or you can use an A3 sketchbook and can mount your photos in the book with or without borders.Daughters school used sketch books with black paper which is quite a good way to showcase photos.

A sketchbook usually shows some development and the research that goes into a final piece of work.
