A little over a year ago I started working on a portfolio website for my photography. I wanted a place to display my work in a more organized fashion and allow visitors the ability to print any image they like. I have been doing my own printing through mpix.com and was very happy with the results. Through that website I found Zenfolio and setup my first attempt at a portfolio.
As I typically do I went full speed ahead for an initial few months but then fell to only periodic updates to the website. I wasn’t sure how to make it fit into what I was doing here on this blog and it was beginning to show. Over the Thanksgiving holiday I started to correct this problem.
First, I updated the portfolio website with current images. I re-organized the galleries and updated a lot of the content. It was a great next step but it wasn’t enough to make it my own. I wanted to make sure it was more me and I wanted my online efforts to be more cohesive. There was a few more steps for me to complete…
Second, I created my own domain. I have never been a fan of using my name but I have always played with my initials, so… I can be found at:
And lastly, I modified this blog to be:
Picture Day -> blog.mlcreationsphotography.com
You might also have noticed that I changed the visual theme of this blog to align better with my portfolio website. This blog has a direct link back to the portfolio and to complete the circle the portfolio links back here. I will also be using the portfolio for hosting my images and using them here in blog posts directly. When you click on an image in a blog post it will link back to that image on my portfolio.
I’m a pretty good IT geek so the technical aspects I have a handle on but I would love any comments or suggestions for either website. I’m slowing bringing the creative side of me out but a little help would be appreciated.
