There are no doubt hundreds of photography websites and blogs all over the internet but not every photograph makes a place in your heart. This article has a collection of 10 beautiful photography websites that will make you in love with the photographs showcased here. These cool photography websites will ignite your love for photography and inspire to click more often and share your work with the world.
Interest in photography has exploded over the last 10 years, largely thanks to the developments in digital photography. Cameras and computers have become cheaper and more powerful, software more sophistocated and printers can now print photos that are as good (if not better) than anything produced in a chemical darkroom. Now, once you’ve acquired a digital setup, the economic restrictions of film and development costs have been removed and the cost of photography is virtually nil.
Along with these developments in photography has been the parallel development of the Web. Ten years ago websites were largely clumsy, HTML driven constructions. Today, contemporary photographers have powerful tools such as Flash, WordPress and DreamWeaver with which to develop their websites. Photographers can also sell their work through companies such as PhotoShelter or ImageKind, and through photo libraries such as Alamy and iStockPhoto, opening up new revenue streams.
The result is that photographers are finding new and exciting ways to showcase their best work online. Here is a collection of fantastic portfolio web design. We think this will be worthwhile for anybody who wants to create an online portfolio for their photography and is looking for some inspiration. These websites illustrate a variety of creative methods to present the same thing: photographers and their work. Photos (like designs) can often be inspiring themselves and the below websites do a brilliant job in representing photographers and presenting their work. They also highlight how different niches (within photography) use different web design to build credibility.
