Your Photography Website?
If you are looking for the right way to present your own cool photos? I have an idea for you!
Why should you upload them on platforms like Flickr or 500px? You are paying money for the service and you don’t even have the chance to be creative: You cannot choose between gallery styles, you cannot add a blog, and in the free trial you can only upload 20 pictures per week!
Well, with these platforms, you have a community that will comment and like your pictures. But with a website, you can still have this – you can connect your website with Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Instagram and 500px.
So, what are website builders and what skills do you need? Let me say – besides taking good pictures – none. This is because these online website builders work without programming skills or big technical knowledge! The whole process is done online – you don’t have to download anything on your pc. And they are secure – they protect your website automatically with security updates. Most of them let you work directly on the page. That means: You add something, and you see it just like a visitor would see it. If you need to adjust the size of an image – you can see/edit it directly: no need to switch between editing and viewing mode!
Who are website builders for?
These websites are mostly for individuals, freelancers and photographers. Big companies, like airlines or city councils, would need another system. But for us, it is just the right thing!
For us photographers, there are some awesome providers with great image galleries and templates!
I’ve tested some of these website builders, and here are my favorites!
