5 Reasons why you need a Photography Website


let’s see why you need a photography
website as a photographer you are a brand so you need to act like a brand
just relying on Instagram is not enough if you have 100 followers it’s not
enough you will look amateurish I don’t like that it’s not how I would like
things to be that it’s how it is if you have less than 1000 subscribers on
Instagram you will look like an amateur even if you are really talented and you
are the best photographer in your city in your country ever if you have a
really low amount of followers on Instagram clients and brands will not
think you are good enough but the good thing is that website will make your
clients only focus on your work and not on your web influence so Squarespace is sponsoring this
episode but I only accepted to work with them because I really think that the
product they offer is awesome the templates are made for photographers so
it will showcase your work in the best possible way and also it’s responsive so
it will work on mobile and on computer and if you want to get better at
photography and you want to practice you need to spend more time shooting photos
than web coding and creating a website so the fact that you can create really
great and beautiful photo portfolio in a really short amount of time it’s
priceless and Squarespace is the best all-in-one platform it’s really easy to make your website a
platform for redirecting your visitors to your different social media accounts
so this way you can grow your online presence really fast and using only
Instagram to do this to grow your online presence will be really hard and it is
not as effective as only a real website for my previous site I bought a
wordpress template for 50 euros 1 year later it was out of date so I had
to buy a new one with at least on at least on Squarespace the
templates evolve automatically and they evolved with time with your website you get a store, a shop, a place where
you can sell you creations your projects and that’s not possible
on Instagram the store on my older website was catastrophic some people
didn’t get the files in time some people never got the files so I had to send
them by email and apologize every time because there was some bugs on the store
plugin it was really stressing for me and also it was not a good way to sell
my Photoshop action and my Lut’s but now with Squarespace I have a perfectly
working store I can sell my Photoshop actions my filters my Lightroom presets and
really soon I will sell my own Lut’s so stay tuned so there were 24 hour of
consumer service to help you if any problem so when I was creating the
website I had all the help I needed so my website is
going to be live really soon You can create a website for free but you will
lose money in the end by buying the templates and spending a lot of time and
energy trying to fix the bugs and problems you will meet during the
creation of the website so with Squarespace you have all these problems
erased from the equation and you just have to enjoy and create your website
really fast so make your next move with Squarespace and get 10% off with this

    I don't need anything but a camera an arm or two and my brain. It would be NICE to have a website though

    Nice! You have a very nice site!

    I like most of your videos, the only one i didn't like so much, is the one about radiactive lenses, because the acting was gross but it's a matter of taste. But in this video I think you are shooting yourself in the foot giving a terrible bad advise…

    How can you suggest people straight away to not spend money in a professional web-coder?

    What a company like the one you are promoting here offers, is a 'canned' solution, with a few touches your site will look similar to other 1000's of websites and if you want to personalize your site with your own needs and ideas, you WILL need a professional coder.

    Saying what you say, is the same than to suggest people to not hire a professional photographer for the wedding and just buy the pack that they offer you in the registry office, 5 photos, one arriving, one signing, one putting the rings, one kissing and one leaving.

    1:03 masking is not on point 😉

    The lenses don't grow on trees actually killed me 😂 but I have to admit you're the first channel that convinced me to get on squarespace.

    That's why I'm investing a lot on building my website. Squarespace is fantastic, and what people do not understand, is that if you pay an amount for a good website, you will look more professional, and clients will be "able" to spend more money for your work. Sorry for my bad English, as I wrote you on Instagram, I'm Italian 

    great video man!
