Battle of the Photography Websites

If you are a Aspiring Photographer, one of the Most Important things you can Have in your Arsenal is a WEBSITE. and it is actually easier then you think to do yourself. You just have to find the "right"provider". and with so Many Options That claim to be "The number 1 Platform for photographers"  It really depends on what your needs are. and How much do you want to pay. And I cant stress this enough I believe a Website for a Photographer is Crucial. When I first started out about 20 years ago The number one question I was asked was, and still is. Do you have a website or FB page where I can see your work? and Yes Facebook is fine if You dont plan on selling any prints and or you are Just starting out. But eventually you will want to step up your Game with a Website. am Hoping this can Help a bit on making your decision. To me what is one if not the most Important option you need to have is the ability to sell prints or downloads and its so much easier and pain free when you have this option directly from your galleries. when you do a Search for. "top Photographers/client websites you will get most if not all of the following which are all very popular and have there own Pro's and Con's. and keep in mind that some offer little storage while others Offer Unlimited... Wix : While wix Has Fantastic options such as forums, Blogs Add on aps and much more and even Great price packages, They Lack the option to offer your Visitors the ability to Buy right from your Gallery. if they ever bring this to there platform I will Gladly switch back to them. I do use them for a different type of website I Have but not for My Photography buisness. SqareSpace :  while a bit pricey for my Tast I do Love some of the options this Platform offers, but again Lacks the ability To offer your Clients Prints directly from the galleries. They claim to be the Number one Platform for Photography But in my opinion Thats a BIG NO. I cant stress enough How important this Feature is.!!!!!! SmugMug  : smugmug is or was actually one of my Favorite Options. but the Admin part of it is a bit confusing, but the Prices are decent and they offer a Package with Unlimited Storage which is also very Important. They do Offer the option to buy directly from you Galleries as well as Digital Downloads in Mant different Sizes and resolutions BUT a Big Cone for me was Having to Beg for a Pay out and not exactly Easy. Most other services allow the use of paypal or Strip which are two of the Biggest Options for Payments but smugmug does it the hard way and Only Allow Payments ONCE a month. which is one of the which is why I stopped using there service. Pixieset : While they do have Good Customer Services, easy access galleries for both you and your client. very straight forward Admin Panel that anyone can Learn. and the ability to sell prints and more from the Galleries. The website and gallery are almost two different website to the point that you need two different domain names. one for the Gallery section and one for the website, which makes No sense what so ever and makes you buy aditional Domain name. I was recently with them but on top of these issues my website was Flagged by google as Spam. when i contcated them their advise was for me to BUY additional Secuirty. needless to say I switched. Arcadina : if you run into this Name for a photography website RUN dont look back just Run UPDATE: since I have another None Photography website with wix. I recieved a Message that they FINALLY have the option to sell Photos directly from your Galleries so I had to do it and switch Back.... Wix has always been one of my Favorite Platforms but was Lacking that Option and now that they Finally did it I dont think Ill be using any other platforms from now on.

Greedy paintball field Owners!

Why am I seeing more and more Paintball field Owners Charge for a photographer to be at Their Field. Full discloser I personally have never been asked by a field to pay to take photo's nor would I ever Pay a Field To take photo's. Are you fucking kidding me???!!! Lets think about this for a minute. photographers paintball or other wise is a Profession like any Other, So why would you expect us to pay you for Our services. and further more If you are a Photographer or even Trying to be DONT Pay some Greedy ass hat to take photo's, Thats not how this work's. now lets think about this for a minute, at any given event a Field owner or event Promoter will charge 55$ to 75$ per person x 200 players= they make any where between 15$ to 30$ per case on paint Sale's. (low ball) 200 players x 15$ = some also sell Food at Over priced $$$$$. sure some will say they have to pay staff reff's and such even with that Being counted in lets just say They are not Hurting. This is THE Most ridiculous thing I have ever Heard in my 52 years on this Planet. IF YOU ARE A PHOTGRAPHER AND ALLOWING SOME ASS HAT TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF YOU, STOP CALLING YOURSELF A PHOTOGRAPHER. and maybe Brush up on some copy right laws and photography laws as well. one last thing. now ask yourself this...... If you call a Plumber or any contractor to work on your house do they Pay you? if so Can I have there Number???????
