A different perspective on photography websites
Amazing websites built for you, quickly and affordably, so you can focus on running your photography business. Working with ForegroundWeb is all about distinctive quality and long-term thinking, through an array of web design & development services for your photo website.
- Benefit 1
Build personalized websites
Tired of predefined themes that everybody uses?
A tailored website (on top of powerful blogging and image management platforms) can increase your online visibility, look more professional, and better promote (and sell) your work.
Consider FGW to be your personal tailor.
- Benefit 2
Explore creative solutions
Sure, you can hire low-level designers and developers, but they usually just follow instructions and don't really try to understand and solve your real problems.
We try to know your audience, your business goals, your needs, and dig in to find more strategic design solutions.
- Benefit 3
Expand your knowledge
If you're just starting out, your comfort zone is slim.
We can also provide some insight into topics like: business planning, differentiation, defining your USP, market research, digital photo workflow, photo editing etc., or point you in the right direction to learn more.
- Benefit 4
Focus on core features
We pay attention to "site fashion", but color themes, social media buttons and plugins come and go.
Clarity, hierarchy, speed and ease-of-use will also be required in 10 years though,
great design is the art of reduction.
- Benefit 5
Website visitors, images/products sold, image searches (and other business metrics) -
all tracked and optimized-for.
- Benefit 6
We could be doing a site redesign now, but in a few years we can also collaborate on another project/product,
we'll be here when you need help.
- Benefit 7
We know clear communication is important to get the message across,
we try to really listen.
- Benefit 8
You probably want more time to do what you love, instead of learning web design.
Working on your website will get the deserved attention (we avoid over-scheduling), so things progress quickly, with frequent status updates.
- Benefit 9
Save even more time
We try to make your life simpler after launching your site,
so you can quickly update it when fresh content is available
(no coding, no technical stuff, no too many steps for small tasks).
- Benefit 10
Need any help or just want an opinion?
We strive to get back to you within 24 hours.
- Benefit 11
Have any problems with the site?
Don't hesitate to contact us, we'll try to get it off your hands as soon as possible.
We also do routine checks ourselves.
- Benefit 12
We love what we do, so we go the extra mile in our work.
"Impossible" problems are only thrilling challenges.

A word about costs
ForegroundWeb doesn't work on an hourly basis, we are not selling time.
We work on a per-project basis & try to focus on the quality of the work, instead of rushing things, while offering affordable prices.
A new website can cover a large range of elements, it depends a lot on how you'll be using it, what your target audience is and many other things, so there's no clear-cut price list, but what you invest in your project is worth the value you can expect from our services.
We breakdown your project costs and calculate the time needed to finish your website/tasks,
and once sent, a quote can be adjusted to your budget by adding or removing functionality as needed.
Once accepted (and so long as nothing major is further requested), the price never alters, there are no "surprises" or hidden costs, we want to have an up-front and honest working relationship.
Don't hesitate to request a free quote by email or schedule a phone/skype chat to talk about your project:
