Set Up For "pro" Photography Portfolio Site?

Recommended Posts

Hi there, I've been using Pagelines products for some time now, and LOVE it.

I'm about to switch from this theme : http://brendajohima.com to the new Pagelines framework.

I'd like to design it as a "portfolio" site, showcasing primarily photography, and larger images. Before I dive into making the switch, any ideas as to the fastest way to create : 1. Portfolio page of images on several pages. ( or just use NextGen? ) and 2. Large images on the home page that I can easily switch and keep fresh.

Make sense?

Appreciate your feedback, and exited to get going.

Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

Thanks James, I've looked through the options, and unfortunately, I've spent literally hundreds of dollars at Pagelines only to have them send those products out to the public free of charge afterwards, so I hesitate to purchase more than I already own. Looking for some free options. Thanks for your help though, and taking the time to respond, appreciate it.

Basmati, I like that idea. Thank YOU. I will look into that plugin and let you know, although I don't want my images displayed full screen due to theft ... so if there is a way for me to select my own image size then that might work. Thanks!

Thanks Jenny, still working on it, not finding anything that I really like (yet) other than linking in a SmugMug or other pro photo program into the Pagelines theme or linking out to a portfolio somewhere else, or using a different theme, not Pagelines. There must be a way to do it. Let me see if I can find a sample of the look I am going for :)

Basmati, have you seen any samples of photographer sites online using that plugin? Would love to see it in action. Might work

looks pretty good batman, although i find that clicking on some of the images, they are a bit slow to load for me, but great work, and I LOVE your art and photography. Fantastico!
