Create and customize your photography website template
The first step to building a photography portfolio website is to plan how you want it to look.
If you are using a website builder like Format to create your online photography portfolio, you will find it easiest to start experimenting with the different photography templates and layout options available. This is especially helpful since you can quickly build a professional-looking online portfolio without coding. Otherwise you may have to begin by sketching out possible layouts with pen and paper if you're going to code a website yourself.
Consider these layout design questions for your photography website:
Will the pages on your photography website scroll vertically or horizontally?
Will the photos be displayed individually, or in a grid with multiple images?
Where will the site menu be located: footer, header, left, or right side of the page?
What font(s) will you use for your site?
What color scheme best accents your work?
How will you display your name in a way that stands out?
Choosing a website template is a good way to get things started. Changing your website template whenever you are not satisfied with the one you've tried will allow you to experiment with new layouts until you find one that suits you.
With Format, it’s easy to choose and customize a photography website template so your site looks exactly the way you want.
