My wife & I, have been discussing my photography since even before my last posting about getting the same opportunities as press accredited photographers. I apologise for mentioning that thread, even though I learnt a lot from it.
My purpose is to be able to obtain press accreditation to some events, even though I would not be taken photographs on a professional basis (I.e. For money).
One of the recommendations that came from a number of people was to have my own web site to show examples of my photographs that can assist in me getting accreditation. I currently use Flickr, which I most definitely am not a fan of. I do not find it easy to use if you wish to do more than basic things.
To that end, I am trying to think of what a good photographers website looks like. In my head I have an idea that I would like to group photographs by type (e.g. Aviation, sports, reportage, macro, birds, animals, plants, etc.) as well as possibly by event (e.g. Hong Kong 7's, Commonwealth Games, etc).
Does anyone have any thoughts, suggestions, ideas or examples of good web sites that I might learn from please?
I have looked at some websites and most are not my taste. Also most are set up to "sell" a photographer. Totally understandable, but not what I want.
I think,I am trying to set up an an line art gallery that displays my photographs to their best advantage. I am not selling the photographs, nor I am I selling me as someone whose time can be booked. I do want people to know that the photographs are copyright protected though.
Thank you all, again for putting up,with me.
