Create and customize your photography website template
Now take some time to think about how you want your photography portfolio website to look. You might want to sketch out possible layouts with pen and paper, especially if you are planning to create the site yourself using HTML. If you are using a website builder to create your online photography portfolio, you may find it easiest to start experimenting with the different photography templates and layout options available. There are lots of free website templates out there that can help you quickly build a professional-looking online portfolio without coding.
If you’re having a hard time choosing the best layout for your work, these are some simple website design questions to consider:
Will the pages on your photography website scroll vertically or horizontally?
Will your photos be displayed individually, or in a grid with multiple images?
Where will your 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?
Just selecting a photography website template you like can be a good start to getting things rolling. You can always switch up your website template for a new one if you don’t like the one you’ve tried, and just seeing your photos laid out in a neat grid or horizontal gallery can help you decide which layout works for you.
With Format, it’s easy to choose and customize a photography website template so your site looks exactly the way you want.
