Starting a Website

 

I’m thinking of setting up my own website. Any guidelines?

It is tempting to have a fancy looking website but you are better off with one that loads quickly!

Firstly, carefully select your work and show off only your best images. Secondly, upload low-resolution images. This allows the website to load faster and also minimises the chances of image theft. A resolution of 1000-1200 pixels is good enough for a website.

Also, remember that having your contact information easily available makes it easy for someone to get in touch with you. Craft a simple, yet engaging bio. Let people know who you are.
