HOW TO USE THE CLUB TO BUILD YOUR PORTFOLIO

How do you land jobs as a freelancer? Well, the first thing an employer will see is your portfolio. It's like your CV. The quality of your work, experience and relevance will go a long way to landing the job. How to you build a portfolio? Join the Freelancer Club, connect with other freelancers and shoot together. We speak with a couple of members who did just that to learn how to build the perfect portfolio.

WHY WORK AT LONDON FASHION WEEK?

What's the big deal anyway? Why does everyone lose their mind around London Fashion Week and what do you really get out of it? We spoke with a few London Fashion Week regulars to get their views on the benefits one would get at the capital's hottest fashion show and what a freelancer can expect when experiencing the LFW madness.

LONDON FASHION SHOWCASE

The Freelancer Club is proud to present London Fashion Showcase, an industry fashion event taking place during London Fashion Week. London Fashion Showcase will feature contemporary designers who have a story to tell and invite press, buyers and VIPs. 

A FREELANCER'S CHRISTMAS

Christmas is just around the corner and it's a strange time for freelancers. December can be a demotivating period of year particularly as the days grow shorter, most businesses are winding down and you've got one eye on a large brandy by the fire. But wait! Before you fall into a festive stupor, December can be a great time for freelancers and we've got a check list for you to tick off to beat those Christmas blues.

THE JOURNEY OF PHOTOGRAPHER MIGUEL VILLARS

We are extremely fortunate to have so many talented, passionate, and creative freelancers in our club. We see a lot of incredible work on the site but don't often hear about the journeys. When we were contacted by Jazzmine, who wanted to surprise her friend and Freelancer Club member, Miguel Villar, with a unique birthday gift, we loved the idea. Enjoy the story of photographer Miguel Villars in Jazzmine's words. Happy birthday.
