A longer bio
I run a website called ForegroundWeb (f-o-r-e-groundweb dot com) which is all about photography websites.
I started out years ago with photography myself, been through the struggles of finding work, shot a couple of weddings, had my own portrait studio, and learned to build photo websites through firsthand trial-and-error. Since then I’ve been a successful freelancer, gathering experience from over 200 projects, both small and large, everything from beginner photographers to full-time pros and large agencies.
I help photographers grow their photography business with a stellar web presence, in two ways:
- I either build websites for them, I have almost ten years of experience, having worked on over 200 websites for photographers from 25 countries
- or I help and teach photographers how to improve their online business themselves:
- a ton of educational content (articles, newsletter, resources)
- website teardowns and SEO audits, showing them where they need to improve
- consulting & strategy calls
My clients are pro or semi-pro photographers selling licenses or photo-based products online (prints, calendars, books, workshops, photo tours, etc.)
I also work on portfolio-only websites, that don’t sell anything, but I can make less of an impact there, because I don’t do photo critiques, and the quality of the images is the overwhelming factor there. But there’s still plenty I can improve on portfolio websites as well, and I’ve written plenty of articles about this topic as well (about how to edit down and sequence images in a portfolio).
