    usually at least 20 representative photos (to display your talents and areas of expertise), in S8R size. all packaged nicely in a portfolio book...

    I use A3 acid free plastic sleeves with holes punched on the edge for both my work and images. All binded in a Daler Rowney portfolio(holds about 50-75 prints) with a carry handle and shoulder strap. All these can be purchased from Art Friend at Bras Basah Complex.

    The name is not shown on my case and I couldn't really make up what's in those picstures but I think I've got the Maxi Presentation Artcase judging from the amount of sleeves that can be put inside. Also, mine's not black but in black/gray checks. Comes in various sizes from A4 to A1.

    Mounting as in mounted on cardboards or? Anyway I print on A3s matte paper so it fits nicely in the sleeves. The sleeves are actually bigger then A3 but the prints are pretty secured, not much movement. I would imagine anything that's mounted would be too thick to fit into the sleeves.

    Not sure about those wedding albums but I think some of them uses photo corners.

    Can actually use 3M spray mount (can be bought at most DIY shops) to stick the photos on. Cost abt $15 per can
