    Web site input

    So I have been working on putting a website together for all my photos. Been a work in progress for a while as I took the original one I had up, off the web. I need some input.

    The main service I will be showing off on my web site is equine photography but I will also have a large variety that willl range from family portraits, kids to family pets, scenery, weddings etc.

    What are some of the things you would be looking for when searching for a photographer for a specific venue or a special event. What would you be looking for in your photographer?

    I will be looking for a professional website with many fantastic shots for each specific category they shoot. Diversity. Also I like to get a feel for the person before I even consider them, so I really enjoy an about me section that's just real and straight to the point, friendly, something that basically sells yourself as someone great to work with. What's really going to be the main thing on a site, is clear portfolio and contact information. At least that's my point of view ;).

    I definitely look for professionalism. I want words spelled correctly, and I want everything to look neat.

    I agree that an "About Me" section is a great idea, especially for a photographer. Photography is something that can be so subjective, it's a good idea to let your potential customers know a bit about you and get a feel for who you are.

    I also can't stand photography websites with limited selection of photos to view. I hate it when the photos take 100 million years to load. I dislike it when I cannot find the contact information. Links that don't work are a big no-no.

    I guess my biggest thing is professionalism. So many people think the internet is a place where everything is casual, but I appreciate a well done website. :]

    Can't wait to see it!

    Hope this is helpful.

    I like a well organzied- easy to navigate page. The color schemes should be the same throughout the website as well. The about me section is a great idea, people that want pictures taken want a person that has great/easy going personality and that section can help let the show.

    Pictures, pictures, pictures... I like when I go to sites and they have it organized (people, horses, animals, flowers, etc...)

    Your contact info should also be easy to read- include email and phone and atleast your town/area where you live.

    I like a diversity of shots. I'm looking for my wedding photographer right now and when I look through their portfolio I want to see a variety of shots candid and portrait. I also want to know that the photographer is friendly and a pleasure to be around since I will have to be in close contact with them on a very hectic and special day. Make sure your website loads easily. Don't bog it down with a bunch of neat looking graphics that will slow the loading process. If I can't load a website in a decent amount of time I am likely to reach for the back button before I even see their work.
