For all intents and purposes, my professional website “Life Inspired Photography” is down.
The platform I use, SmugMug, forced their clients to switch to a new upgraded version, but I didn’t know that all my galleries wouldn’t automatically transfer when I finally agreed to the change (only the featured pics did.)
So, I’m currently reviewing other platforms like Wix, Zenfolio and Squarespace, too. While I love SmugMug for many different reasons, I say, don’t fix it if it isn’t broken people! I may or may not be staying with them and have to decide within the next couple of days.
Any advice or recommendations? I have needed a built-in way to sell photos and products too, so that’s the main reason I had chosen them, plus they had an easy learning curve. However, I’m not a fan of their new templates and the changes they’ve made now. I also couldn’t incorporate a blog without hired CSS help, so that’s why I’ve got a separate photoblog here with WordPress.
If you shoot and sell your own photography,
what do you use for a platform(s) and why do you like it?
Please feel free to leave a link to your site as well, so I can check it out.
(I will not any link sales or spam!)
