Build your online photography portfolio using one of these Divi child themes or layout packs to save time and give your site the professional design it needs to convert your visitors into clients.
Most potential clients will want to see some of your best photographs, read a quick intro about you, your services & prices, and then get in touch, so keep it simple.
Here are a few quick tips for your photography website;
- Only showcase your very best photography in your main portfolio and be very selective on what makes the cut. If you want to show off more images you can use blog posts to document individual photo-shoots in more detail or post via social media accounts.
- Have an informative about page so potential clients can get to know who you are, what services you are offering and why they should hire you. Include practical info such as your location, where you can travel to and what awards or recognitions you may have.
- Your images should be high enough quality so they are clear across all devices, but make sure images and your website as a whole is optimized so that your website loads fast too.
- Keep the design minimal with plenty of white-space so the focus is on the photography. Incorporate smaller details such as subtle animation effects or text styling to add your own personal touches.
- Make it easy for potential clients to contact you with a great contact page that can be accessed from any page on your site.
