Premium website support for photographers
You can get ahead in the industry by focusing on your craft and your marketing efforts. But you can't do that if you're constantly tinkering with technical details on your site. Or if managing the content has become a hassle.
My platform-agnostic website support service will give you peace of mind that your photography website is running smoothly.
And it will give you access to a dedicated web-design expert (that's me!) that can handle all website content & layout changes, so you can save time and get back to your passion.
There's no task too small. I'll be your trusted web expert to take website‑related things off your plate.
Premium website support is for you if...
- You're wasting too much time managing content and setting up technical details on your site, instead of focusing on your craft
- You're struggling to make your website platform "behave" (regardless what it is: WordPress, Squarespace, Wix, PhotoShelter, Smugmug, Livebooks, Pixpa, you name it)
- You need small website fixes and someone to look after your online presence
Running a successful photography website is hard work. Focus on the content (text and images) and leave the rest to a seasoned web-design pro.

What's not included in the support plan:
- Advanced web-design work - If you need help with major changes to the look or functionality of your site (changing themes, adding entire new sections, doing complete site redesigns, etc.), or fixing damages caused by third-party modifications to the site, we'll discuss that as a separate mini-project. What's considered "minor" or "major"? It depends, of course, I'll be honest with your about it when I think what you're asking goes outside of the scope of your website support plan.
- Copywriting - While I have a pretty good understanding of the English language, I'm not a native English speaker. I'd be happy to do simple reviews of your page copy where needed, but I highly recommend you hire a dedicated copywriter if you need that kind of help. This article on my site lists a few pro copywriters that have experience with photography websites.
