Did I Need a Website?
I've read many articles in the photographic press about how to get noticed on-line as a photographer. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest all get mentioned and it seems that generally all are needed in some way to get your work "out there."
My main frustration with this has been the Algorithms that these platforms use to determine who gets to see what on their sites. It seems that we, as users, have very little control over how much exposure our work gets. This is what drew me to construct my own site where I can display what I want displayed. Then use the social media platforms to promote my site.
I must say that using Wix.com to construct my site was really quite easy. Took some time to tag my gallery images properly but from now on adding new images shouldn't take so long. Take a look around and let me know what you think.
