Photoshelter – the online photo archiving, display and selling site have chosen my Clearing the Vision photography site as one of their examples of customization.

It’s in the Marketing/Promo category on their examples page.

I adapted one of their templates and integrated it with WordPress to make it easy to update the photo and text sides of the site, while giving it all a consistent look and feel (more details on how I did it in my blog post on Clearing the Vision).

Photoshelter has 40,000 photographers using the service, and they chose around 25 sites as examples, so it’s quite an honour.

I’m currently working on sites for three other photographers which will follow this approach (with different look and feels that match the individual photographers, of course).

Built for work, not just show

It’s a combination that works well, creating a site that’s easy to update, attractive, and crucially built for work not just for show. The stock licensing and photo printing features that Photoshelter offer mean your site can actually generate income for you, as well as acting as a promotional tool.

So thanks to Photoshelter for the kudos, and if you’re a photographer interested in how this might work for you, get in touch.
