If you are a fine art photographer or any other type of photographer, you need to have a good website. Get a professional in web development to help you construct your website if you are not sure of how to go about it. Some of the things that you must have on your photography website are:
Sample of Work
People will come to your site to check what you can do. They will need to be convinced that you are good at your work if they can see what you are doing. This means that a good photography website must have a portfolio of work that is properly captioned so that people can appreciate the work of the photographer. Fine art is photography is about creativity and emotions, so the work that you showcase on your website must be able to convey your strengths.
When people have seen your portfolio and are impressed with what you can do, the next step would be to either reach out to you to contract you for their next assignment or to refer you to their friends. It gets very difficult when they cannot find your contact details. You should have a section that has all your contacts, including a link to your social media which is also something that you should have on your website. The power of social media and growth in photography cannot be overstated.
Photographers who are serious about getting hired off their websites should have a rate card and a breakdown of their charges. This makes things easier for you and the person who wants to hire you. Without your rate card on your website, you may realize that most of your time will be spent on phone or email trying to explain how much you charge.
Your website is how you introduce yourself to people. Since fine art photography is all about bringing out emotions, you may want to develop a relationship with the person who is hiring you before you start taking the photos. Have a section about yourself where you explain who you are, what your website is all about, what pushes you, and what makes you different.
