Not a thing wrong with selfless . . . if you are as good at it as Cindy Sherman (google that name if you are not familiar with her work). Otherwise, it makes you look very amateur indeed.

The purpose of a portfolio is to get you new work.

If they help get you new work they are good, if not lose them. Now one way photographers judge who they will work with is by their raw look but another is how they work with a number of photographers.

Now if the purpose of your port is display pictures that you are proud of and not get new work that is a different thing.
