If you have been engaged in photography for any length of time and do not yet have a website, I want to encourage you to drop what you are doing and go set one up.
You already know that creating a website immediately gives you a potential worldwide audience, and if nothing else it gives you a way to show people your work without making a bunch of costly prints.
The Simple and Cheap Way to Set Up Your Website
So if you don’t yet have a website for your photography (and may don’t), it is likely because you think it is really expensive, time-consuming, or beyond your technical abilities. That could not be further from the truth:
- Photography portfolio design websites are simple and intuitive to use.
- They allow you to create truly professional looking websites with a minimal amount of effort.
- The entire setup and hosting for a year will be under a hundred bucks.
The Photographer’s Guide to Creating an Online Portfolio
I created the Photographer’s Guide to Creating an Online Portfolio to help people get started creating websites for their photography. In this guide, I will help you set up your own photography website. I compare the providers so you can be sure you are going with the best one for you. I also give you tips for posting your photos and ensuring that your galleries look as good as possible.
Even if you already have a portfolio site, I guarantee this guide will contain tips that you can incorporate into your own website. The improvements and additions never end with websites – if you are not adding more photos, you are making a tweak here or there. This guide will give you ideas for improving your existing site or the way you have your photos presented.
And, best of all, it is free. All you need to do is subscribe to Outdoor Photo Academy. Plus, subscribing will get you my newsletter that keeps you current on the new stuff going on around here.
Once you subscribe, you will receive an email with the link to the Guide.
Of course, if you are already a subscriber, you get this Guide as well! Just go to the special Guides page I previously sent to you. If you don’t have that, check the November 26, 2014 newsletter, which has the link. If you don’t have that either, just email me and I will respond with the link quickly. And thanks for being a subscriber!
