When we create pages for photographers, what do they look like? What do clients see?

The photography industry has managed to create and settle on a relatively standard photographic image display format across layout variants. When we embark on a development project to create such a business website, using this standard tends to be adhered to in order to attain the sites desired look and feel.

However, with the above in mind, photographers often like to add their own personal touch to the overall look and functionality of the site which is where our programming and other technical skills come into play.

In today's age of computers and the current internet, having an online website up and running is very important for photographers who want to provide a showcase of their work to new potential clients. One of the most important components of this online presence is a well-designed website. In this comprehensive guide, we will explore the various elements that make up an effective photographer website design.

Purpose and Audience The first step in designing a photographer website is to define its purpose and audience. Are you looking to showcase your portfolio to potential clients, sell prints, or build a community of fellow photographers? Your website's purpose will determine the content, layout, and functionality you need to incorporate.

Your audience is equally important. Are you targeting couples looking for wedding photographers, businesses seeking corporate headshots, or art collectors interested in fine art prints? Understanding your audience will help you tailor your website to their needs and preferences.

Branding Branding is another crucial component of a successful photographer website design. Your branding should be consistent across all your online channels, including your website, social media, and email marketing. It should also reflect your personality and style as a photographer.

Start by choosing a color scheme that complements your photography style. Use your logo, fonts, and graphics to reinforce your brand identity. Your branding should be memorable and easy to recognize, so visitors can quickly associate your website with your photography.

Navigation and Layout The navigation and layout of your website are critical for user experience. Visitors should be able to locate the information they need with no trouble messing around with long winded clicking of links etc. Keep your navigation simple and intuitive, with clear categories that reflect the purpose and content of your website.

Your layout should also be user-friendly, with a clean design that highlights your photography. Use high-quality images throughout your website, with a mix of horizontal and vertical shots to add visual interest. Make sure your images are optimized for web use to ensure fast loading times.

Content The content of your website should be compelling and informative, with a clear focus on your photography. Start with a strong homepage that showcases your best work and introduces visitors to your brand. Use descriptive captions and tags to give context to your images and help visitors understand your style and approach.

Your portfolio should be organized by category, with clear descriptions and tags that make it easy for visitors to find what they are looking for. Include information about your services, pricing, and availability, as well as any testimonials or awards you have received.

Functionality The functionality of your website is another critical aspect of your photographer website design. Your website should be easy to navigate, with fast loading times and mobile responsiveness. It should also be optimized for search engines, with relevant keywords and meta descriptions that help your website rank higher in search results.

Consider adding features like a blog, online booking system, or e-commerce platform to enhance the functionality of your website. These features can help you connect with your audience, generate leads, and sell your photography online.

Contact and Call to Action Finally, make it easy for visitors to contact you and take action on your website. Include a clear call to action on your homepage and throughout your website, encouraging visitors to book a session or purchase your photography. Use a contact form or email address to make it easy for visitors to get in touch with you.

Designing a successful photographer website requires careful planning and attention to detail. By understanding your audience, branding your website effectively, creating compelling content, and optimizing for functionality and search engines, you can create a website that showcases your photography and attracts new clients. Follow these tips and you'll be on your way to creating a stunning website that truly represents your unique style and vision as a photographer.

For example, to begin with you may wish to present your portfolio website with a large beautiful photograph overlaid with an introductory title and strapline ..... or instead you might prefer the home page to jump straight into a photo gallery of your choice with thumbnails, which is perhaps defined by a category, then show prices - it depends on your goals.

Will we include all your related services when building the website?

Definitely Yes - and your clients will love it. The web content and overall portfolio site can include whatever you want to show your passion. For example you may include video as well as pictures, post shoot processing / editing and presentation such as the making of wedding albums, memory cards, printing services, model promotion, product photography, your studio. What we place on the site is in your control.

We can also organise your work into categories for your visitors to browse and learn more about what you do, such as wedding services, corporate group events, model assignments, fashion, product, location, portraits / landscapes, publishing and business advertising. The list is as long as you need it to be. Some photographers offer free tutorials - these can attract links and help with marketing.

Professional Associations and Qualifications can be added next....

If you are a member of a good association for photographers or you have a qualification or apprenticeship you would like to add to your portfolio, we can position these details either prominently with good effect, or otherwise depending on your preference. Highlighting examples of relevant memberships and certifications helps build customer trust and increases the chances being hired for both agencies and freelance photographers.
These might include :-
City and Guilds Courses Completed
Master Photographers Association (MPA) Levels (Licentiate, Associate and Fellowship)
British Academy of Photography (BAP)
BTec Courses
British Institute of Professional Photograpy (BIPP)

The benefits of owning a domain designed especially around your photography services business.

The ability to add work and add prints on an ongoing basis (from anywhere in the world) ensures that you benefit from being able to present up to date content on a consistent and regular basis to potential customers who are looking to hire a professional.

Naturally the aim is to get more customers. With over 20 years of experience and research into search engine optimisation, you can be assured that you will benefit from owning a website which is designed and coded to match the requirements of Google and its ranking algorithms.

You will also gain credibility owning your own domain with a bespoke photography website design, as opposed to a blog type setup which can be frought with problems and is very easily damaged - often costing more in the long run.

Example website layout for inspiration - you can choose something like this to support your business, or we can produce an alternative theme to best suit your needs which will stand out above those used by the free site builders or wordpress.

Example layout template

A collection of 12 of images showing the kind of clean opening page you can choose - again this is not set in stone - we can implement any and every idea / photographic material you have at your disposal. Items such as a newsletter and comments form can be added during the build. Photography sites tend to follow design trends so we can update the graphic design and other element such as photo galleries with coding changes which are ongoing.
