Build a Photography Website in 5 Minutes

The hosting service I used in the video (highly recommended) is theartofphotography If you want to see notes on how I set all this up (I move fast in this video), or other videos in the series – check out theartofphotography.tv A little extra series outside the normal podcasts on building a website. Ive done several videos on why you should have a photography portfolio online. Something thats not just Flickr, 500px or another photo sharing website. This is about setting up your own website. I love WordPress and use it on just about everything – this video will be the first in a series on setting up WordPress to behave for a photography portfolio. This first video was made to prove how easy it is to get set up. Here it is – domain name, hosting, WordPress setup and your first post all in 5 minutes.

    Nice video Ted i built a BLOGGING site that’s acting as a website. Although i think people are better learning to program a site with the normal ingredients.

    Do you think a Nikon d50 or d80 would be ok for use with a 24-70 lens. I want to setup a studio and perhapes get some A4 prints to let the customer have. I know the focal length will change, but i can’t warrant spending over the top for a used full-frame camera. All the best..keep shooting.

    Yes, It’s my bad, unfortunately I didn’t read anywhere that they take the money upfront. I brought one from hostgator with a monthly cycle payment no contract. Anyway, thnx for for your video, it was very inspiring, although I’m an amateur there is no reason for any photographer not to have their own web presence. I’m looking forward to more of your videos.

    That’s because you signed up for a 3 year plan. That’s 3 years of domain and 3 years of service… not one month.

    Did you call Bluehost at all? Their customer service is excellent and I’m sure they could help you with this…

    I tried to buy a domain from this site yesterday, the same one on this video just with 3 year plan ($4.95 monthly & $9.99 domain name privacy). The transaction was unsuccessful :( , twice! When I called the customer service of my Bank and asked what is the problem with my credit card they told me that the website tried to charge me $211 twice :( and that I had (fortunately) less money in my account! Anyone had similar experience?
