Section 1: Introduction
08:23

This video gives you an introduction to the "Create a Gorgeous Photography Website in 90 Minutes" Udemy course. It includes important information about who this course is for, why we're building our site on the SmugMug photo hosting platform, and gives a walk-through of the website I will help you create in this course.

Section 2: Step-by-Step Tutorial
15:01

In this video, we’ll create our SmugMug account (if you haven’t done so already), and create our first gallery – filling it with beautiful images.

SmugMug (20% off, 14 day free trial)

Demo Site -

08:11

In this video, we’ll fill out our site by creating a few more galleries and uploading more photos. I’ll show you how to use the “Quick Settings” feature in SmugMug. Then we’ll use the best photos from each gallery to create our very important (and impressive) Portfolio gallery. And we’ll be using a secret SmugMug ninja trick to create our Portfolio. That’s right – Secret. Ninja. Trick. :)

12:02

Step 3 is about creating our profile and site settings so things just “work” in the later steps.

17:37

In this video we start to modify the look and feel of your SmugMug site by adjusting the settings with SmugMug's "Easy Customizer" tool.

This step is a bit long, so it's been broken out into 2 videos.
