What Photography Platform Do You Use?

November 9, 2014


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!)

    I use SmugMug and didn’t have any problems when transferring my pics. Try it again, maybe it works the second time around.

    Please share the link when you decide which platform to use.

    I would will say “Squarespace” has a much better choice in template options and they’re five dollars less per month than SmugMug. Still, I want to fulfill my photo orders through BayPhoto Lab. I’m not sold on how Squarespace’s e-commerce is set up.
