In addition, the understated style of the website underlines the story these fascinating photos have to tell. Igor wants to capture real, unadorned, and raw life in his pictures. The Latvian photographer’s uniform gallery lets you appreciate the imposing images as a whole and then display them fullscreen if you want. As simple as it is brilliant.

We particularly like the “Tips and Tricks” section of her photography website, where she passes on her photography tips to visitors. The site is still under construction, but it’s already looking impressive.
Top photography website tips
- Let your pictures speak for themselves. Don’t use too many effects around your photos. In this case, less is more.
- Craft your portfolio around a concept; whether you place your photos in different categories or display pictures with a variety of different themes together on the same page—the most important thing is to put your plan into action in a uniform way.
- Create a harmonious color scheme. It doesn’t matter if they are bright colors or highly saturated images, they need to work together. The colors of your photos should combine with your website to create a well-balanced overall impression.
- Your homepage needs to impress. Choose a photo that has the wow factor to use as your header image or the background for your homepage.
- Social Media! Many photographers get jobs through referrals. That’s why you need to integrate social media buttons and stay in touch with previous customers who might recommend you to their friends.
- Make sure you take full advantage of buttons and display your contact details. It’s likely you want your photography website to showcase not just your pictures, but also to attract new customers. Add buttons to the bottom of your pages which lead customers to your contact page and use a booking block to help turn website visitors into customers!
- Be transparent. Include an FAQ section, your service plan, or similar items on your photography website, and make it easier for potential customers to get an idea in advance.
