Make a photography website
Choosing to make a photography website is a great way for professional and amateur photographers to promote their photos and photography business, sell images and photographic equipment.
doomby makes it easy to make a pro photo website with no prior technical skills, publish photos online, sort them by category or display slideshows.
How to make a photography website
Whether you're interested in wedding photography, concert photos, macro-photography, portraits, or sports photography, you'll find it simple to publish and display your images on your free photography website. All it takes to make a photography website is to sign up for a free account. Everything you'll need is right there online, in your web browser - there's nothing to install.
Once you've registered, start using the simple yet full-featured WYSIWYG page editor to make unlimited web pages filled with multimedia content like photos and videos. It takes just a few minutes to:
- Present your store or photographic studio (background, address, access maps)
- Showcase your gear and techniques (film or digital, lenses, flash equipment etc.)
- Present yourself, your resumé and exhibitions.
- Describe your approach to your subjects, and your preferred subject matter.
- Present your offers and pricing details if you're a professional photographer.
- Publish photographic tutorials: angles, settings, editing software, illustrated with screen-shots and videos.
Show off your best shots and add slideshows easily
Being a photographer's website, it obviously important to display your best photos. Whether you're an amateur or professional photographer (wedding photographer, concert or band photographer, fashion photographer etc.), you can make a free online photo album in no time, transforming your website into a promotional tool for your activity.
Sort and organize photos, resize or reformat photos for optimal web display (72 dpi), configure your slideshows ? everything you'll need to promote your business or hobby on the web is already included.
Already published your images on an external site, like Picassa or Flickr? There's no need to transfer them if you don't want to. doomby's website creation philosophy is all about making it easy to make a website, any way you want. In addition to the included free website builder tools, you can easily integrate a Flickr or Picassa gallery.
Make an interactive photo website for your clients, friends and loved ones
Make a photo blog to highlight your work and photographic talents. Deciding to make a blog is a great way to present your work from your own, behind-the-scenes perspective, giving clients valuable insight into what happens inside the studio. It's a great way to keep clients, friends and family up-to-date with your progress as you get on with the work of printing and reworking your shots.
Visitors can leave comments on your photo blog posts, the contents of your video gallery (stop-motion animations, film of your shooting sessions, Photoshop tutorials) and online photo albums. Make sure you enable your guestbook to provide clients and friends with a space to leave their impressions and start getting your website known.
Make a photographic forum is a good way to share advice or pointers if you're a professional photographer or passionate amateur, whilst providing a space for others interested in photography to share opinions and organise photo shoots.
Sell prints and photographic equipment on your pro website
Make an online shop to give yourself the means to sell gear and photos right on your website. Sell shots individually, or as sets, sell enlargements, your used photographic equipment or unused gear to buy that a new lens. With automated billing and stock management, and shipping and handling calculations, combined with associated product selling and discount codes, you'll have everything you need to build the sales end of your business right on your website.
