I'm looking for a new photography portfolio site and am exploring my options. Quite a few new portfolio sites have popped up and I'm not even sure I've yet seen them all!
The site I currently use is a small European one, and though I love the simple design, I find it very limiting in terms of layout, navigation, and descriptions. I can't really explain photo projects or easily describe where/why a photo was taken.
I don't, however, have a huge budget, so sites like A Photo Folio are too much. What are your recommendations for portfolio sites that are clean and minimalist (and allow for some customization--descriptions, font changes, background colors/beginning images), but that won't cost me a thousand dollars?
- Most "new" sites developed even a year or two ago don't include mobile/iPad accessibility. Portfolio sites in 2013 often do. Have you found prospective clients/employers to use device features a lot?
-Selling is not an option I need to have; SmugMug and similar sites always seem too visually busy for my specific purposes.
-When uploading my photos to the portfolio, does size matter? Will there be a 2MB limit...or will my photos be compressed?
Suggestions on what to use or what NOT to use? Links to portfolios (even your own) would be much appreciated!
