One of the most common questions from our photographers is: How can I show my portfolio on my website?
We’ve had our clients show off their portfolios in really fun and unique ways. We’re going to show you a few examples to get you a really good visual idea of what you prefer! Ready!?
Erica had a really incredibly SMART way of approaching her galleries. She wanted more motivation to blog, but she also didn’t want the pressure to always update her galleries, too. So, why not combine them both!? If you go to Erica’s website, you’ll notice if you click on “Portfolio”, it shows a few categories and featured sessions. These are all blog posts! Cool, right?!
Abigail’s portfolio is shown off in a “grid” format on each of her specialty pages! This is a great way to fill in any white space you might not want and also give little sneak previews into photos before someone sees the full image! By simply scrolling through the images, her clients can click into each of the images and see them bigger in a pop-up window.
Who doesn’t love an easy click-through slideshow?! Karlee and Keysha from Brick Street Studio have their portfolio shown off ALL over their experience pages. But, specifically, we LOVE the slideshow at the bottom of their experience pages that are very on-brand and a unique way to have their clients easily click to images they want to see!
No matter what way you decide to showcase your portfolio, make sure everything is very easy for your clients! Sometimes when photos take up the ENTIRE screen (especially on blogs), they can feel too overwhelming. The easier, the better!
And within a month I had already booked 5 weddings. (I had ONE wedding the year before....one!) Based on my success since then, I could ultimately see my business double in bookings again this year. It's been amazing!!"
