What pages are essential for a photography website?
Photography websites’ greatest USP has always been the design of the website. There are many ways one can design a photography website. However, there are certain featured pages that are required by almost all photography websites. A concise list is given below:
- Personal Information
Since a photographer is a working professional, a career portfolio showcasing his erstwhile clients is a good place to start. A portfolio page makes it more likely for a potential client to contact you for a contract.
A photography website’s most important part is the gallery. While this may be your home page directly, however, a fluid navigable set of dedicated galleries can help your clients judge your photography skills. A photography website without a gallery is functionally useless.
Having a gallery and portfolio is redundant if a genuine page listing out your contact email/headquarters is not part of the website. A contact page is the best way to generate initial contact with potential clients who are likely to hire you.
A dedicated blog can be an added boon for a photography website. While it is difficult to maintain both galleries and blogs, a blog for each different gallery is helpful. A behind-the-scenes journey adds a lot of character to your website and helps with its Google rankings, driving up web traffic.
Every website requires an about page but a photography website about page has a different effect. A website dedicated to the arts must have a good backstory to it which can help it be more appealing to the audience. A good about page might even make amateur photography skills more acceptable.
A photography website should also dedicate a page to the people involved. If the website is run by a single person, showing their love of photography and a concise description about their life is often inspiring to see. Such a page for all photographers is even more necessary for a photography company.
