We teach you how to build a free website for photographer and offer a WordPress template with portfolio for you to edit with a drag and drop tool!
You are a photographer and want to show your work to a potential costumer, so he will ask you the following question: do you have a website?
If the answer is “no”, you may be losing an opportunity, because a website is a useful way to demonstrate your work and gain credibility. For this reason (and many others), every photographer must have a website with on-line portfolio.
First we are going to create an information architecture for the free site for photographer:
- Home: featured photo, short presentation and call to see the work.
- About the photographer: simple descriptions about your styles, jobs and experience.
- Portfolio: the best works you have done, organized by categories.
- Contact: once checked your site and portfolio, the client needs to know all the ways he has to contact you (phone number, e-mail and studio address).
The portfolio is the focus of this free site for photographer. Start by separating your work into categories. You understand about that better than we do, but here are some suggestions: Weddings, Parties, Studio and Conceptual.
By posting the images on the site, consider good optimization practices that will make it load faster and get it better placed in Google results. Click here to have some tips to make a site load faster.
