Great portfolio websites get out of the way. Ornamentation is not necessary. Instead whitespace should frame and showcase the photography, videos, illustrations etc.

Beware portfolios that are too unusual. A portfolio should be simple— weird scrolling mechanics might be unique but they can also frustrate and alienate users. Your portfolio website shouldn't be too unique, think of it like an art gallery— pretty and austere with plenty of space to showcase the artwork.
