A little about photography websites

without comments

You may have found my blog via my new website, but if not visit it at www.kilkus.com  After 8 years of making my own very basic HTML website I finally decided to let the pros do it….. after all, I didn’t get into photography to become a web designer!  

I signed up with www.aphotofolio.com, a very nice service from Rob Haggart, the former Director of Photography for Outside Magazine.  He also has a great blog about the photo industry at www.aphotoeditor.com/ 

Of all the services out there like Livebooks, Clickbooq, et al. A Photo Folio seems to have the best design options and management for the price.  My first choice was to have a web designer build a site from scratch…. but after starting the process back in July and nothing substantial getting done as of November… I finally gave up.  Web design seems to attract some flaky people!

But with that said, there are some great advances in HTML websites for people on a budget.  It’s now easier than ever to publish your own professional looking website for almost no expense thanks to www.indexhibit.org/  You can make a cleanly designed, slick and professional site that’s is perfect for displaying portfolios of all kinds.

But with A Photo Folio, I have a site that takes very little time or brainpower to keep updated, with an interface that is so easy I can have one of my assistants update it without any training.
