Custom Websites For Photographers
Although I build custom websites for photographers, I am not convinced that everyone needs one. I lean more toward custom themes for WordPress. There are advantages to having a custom website built, better search engine optimization being one of them, and a totally unique design being another. The main disadvantage is cost, custom anything is more money. For most photographers, Wordpess is the way to go, however I do recommend a theme designed specifically for photographers
So how do you know which is right for you? Well first we need to address the obvious, do you have the money, and do you want someone else to do everything for you? If you are more of a do it yourself person with limited funds, then WordPress is the way to go. You can have a custom theme made if you want an exclusive design, but the WordPress core lets you do all of the installation, setup, and maintenance yourself. Obviously the least expensive way to go.
If you are not a techy kind of person or you are busy making money shooting, then any of the solutions can work for you. You can do a a complete custom site, WordPress site with custom theme, or even a Hybrid that gives you the best of all worlds.
I have been designing and coding websites for around 20 years now, most have been related to the photography industry, most have been based on WordPress. I also shoot. I have been a photographer since 1984, so I know what photographers, need to be successful on the internet.
