The answer to this really depends on the employer and the job advertisement. Employers will often give explicit instructions regarding whether or not they want to see your portfolio at the time of application. They’ll also tell you if they want to see your portfolio as an attachment, as physical media, through a media sharing site, or some other medium.
Follow the employer’s instructions to the letter regarding your portfolio. Some employers may even specifically request that you do not send your portfolio at the application stage.
If an employer doesn’t include instructions, don’t send your portfolio unsolicited. You can, however, still find a way to showcase your images and videos. Keep a website updated with samples of your portfolio, optimized for web consumption. Include a link to your website portfolio in your resume header, giving employers the option to browse your creative content at their leisure.
