Description

Are you a photographer who needs their own website but have no idea where to start? Does your website need to be beautiful, simple, retina ready and responsive aka mobile-ready (whilst being easy to update yourself)? Tired of trying to use expensive digital agencies or not technical enough to custom code a solution?

---

In this beginners course, I'll run you through the basics of setting up your own photography portfolio website using Wordpress.

We'll look at:

  • Choosing a business name
  • Registering a website name
  • Setting up hosting
  • Installing Wordpress
  • Uploading a custom theme
  • Customising the basic settings

This course, along with the support you'll receive from your hosting provider and the theme seller, will provide exactly what you need to start your photography portfolio site today and start being found by more search traffic. I welcome your feedback and look forward to helping you turn your idea into a beautiful, functioning photography portfolio website!

---

Note: The cost of running a full photography portfolio site is around $75 upfront and as little as $5 per month for hosting.
