Often, our website is the first point of contact between a potential client and ourselves, and that first impression can be the difference between a dream assignment and eating ramen noodles… again. The problem is, it can be really difficult to tell if a website template is right for you without getting “under the hood” first.

Is it easy to use? Do you need to know code to customize it? How does the client section work? Does it crash? Is the customer service any good? How does it look on mobile? And, most importantly, what do your clients think?

This event, aimed primarily at commercial and editorial photographers, puts us in the driver’s seat of each website to experience it from image upload to final viewing. We’ll be driven by an experienced tour operator who knows it best–the photographer whose businesses relies on it. We’ll explore the good, the bad, the joys and the frustrations of each offering. No sales pitch, just real life experience.

The website templates we’ll cover:
APhotoFolio
PhotoShelter
Squarespace
Viewer’s Choice (Zenfolio? Dripbook? WordPress?)
