1. Photography website with Bangkok design: for daring photographers
The web design of Bangkok Photography is characterised by a modern and practical structure.
- Main menu. It is located on the left side of the screen, so that visitors will be able to clearly see, from the very first moment, the information available on your photography website.
- Logo. It appears at the top left of the screen. A strategic place for your visitors to know who you are at all times.
“Bangkok Photography’s cutting-edge web design is full of features to suit your needs as a photographer or videographer. Its cascading photo and video galleries will enhance your work, giving it a special shine. It suits any type of photography to win over your clients and followers.”
Cover of the Bangkok design
In the Bangkok design homepage, you can include all the shortcuts that you find interesting to highlight and, like any other element in Arcadina, you can customise it completely.
Bangkok Design Gallery
The photo and video galleries of the Bangkok design allow you to display your images in full screen and up to 2000px in size (this feature is common in all our web designs). You can also create as many galleries and sub-galleries as you need, choosing between Infinite, Carousel, Pages or Slideshow layouts.
By the way, do you want to know the advantages of each of these gallery designs when creating a unique photography website? Below, we have left you an article where you will be able to solve all your questions.
Bangkok Design Blog
At Arcadina we give a lot of importance to images, but we do not neglect the written part either, because we are very aware that texts are essential for a photography website to be effective and also to be properly positioned in search engines.
In this case, we have chosen to show the articles of the blog with an Infinite design, very easy to navigate. In your blog you also have the possibility of creating categories to order the different publications that you create, depending on the subject to be treated.
2. Creating a photography website with Tokyo design: for minimalist photographers
If you want to create a photography website with personality, Tokyo web design will surprise your clients and followers with unexpected and groundbreaking lines.
- Main menu. It is located at the bottom of the screen and floating above the images. A somewhat unusual location that will give your photography website a more striking point.
- Logo. It is located at the top left-hand side of the screen.
“Tokyo is a groundbreaking design that offers you an explosive mix of full screen images, minimalist design and smooth transitions. Its different colour versions and choice of backgrounds will allow you to change the look of your photography website very quickly. If you want to make a photographer’s website that makes an impact with a different design, Tokyo is your best ally”.
Web presentation of the Tokyo design
When creating a photography website, the presentation page will be the first impression that your visitors will have of your work and that is why, in the Tokyo design, the first thing they will see will be a slide show of photographs or a large video.
In addition, to give your images greater visibility, you will see that the main menu is located on a semi-transparent strip that will not cover any detail of the main photograph.
Photo gallery and videos of the Tokyo design
A differentiating point when creating a photography website with this design is that the galleries and sub-galleries will appear at the top of the screen (if you find it interesting, you can also add a representative image for each one). It is an accordion menu, flexible, that expands and shrinks when you move the mouse pointer over it, achieving a very original and eye-catching effect.
Did you know that when making a photographer’s website adapted to your style, in any of the 7 available designs you will be able to add photo galleries or videos and also integrate Instagram accounts?
Tokyo Design Services section
When explaining how you work in your photography business, it is important that you give as much information as possible in a very clear and visual way. That’s why, in the services section of the Tokyo design, you have a space (full screen) to explain your photography reports in detail. Thanks to the content editor, including clear and direct texts, photos and videos to enhance your message will be very easy.
3. Making a photographer’s website with Arizona design: for more imaginative photographers
If you want to make a website for photographers that goes straight to the heart of your visitors, we encourage you to try the Arizona model, we are sure it will become your ideal candidate.
- Main menu. It is located in the centre of the upper part of the screen, reminiscent of the more traditional menus.
- Logo. In this web design it is placed in a more eye-catching location, right at the top centre of the screen.
“Impress your visitors with a creative and heartfelt design. Arizona is ready for them to enjoy your work in a big way. Its galleries adapt to the size of your mind – a design that makes one want to stay and live on this photography website!”
Web presentation of the Arizona design
On this page the stars will be your logo and your images, 2 of the most important elements when making the first presentations. In this part of your photography website, you can include a slideshow (or Infinite) to show your most representative photographs.
Another element that you can add when creating a photography website is a commercial text, this way you will be able to attract the attention of your readers more easily.
Arizona Design Gallery
This is the space where you can show your visitors all your talent in an orderly and very visual way. In the Arizona design Carousel gallery, you can create all the galleries and sub-galleries you need to organise each session in its corresponding space.
In addition, you can also include a direct access section to Instagram, so that your photos “fly” through the network.
Arizona Design Blog
In your photography blog, as well as being able to include a category to organise your articles according to the subject matter, within each post, you can add full-size photographs (with an integrated image viewer up to 2000 pixels), videos and give the option to share them on your social networks.
“All our blogs include an integrated gallery with a full-screen image viewer up to 2000 pixels. A feature that makes all the difference.
4. Make a photographer’s website with Cairo design: for photographers who don’t follow the rules
Photography websites that use Cairo design stand out for fusing innovation with tradition.
- Main menu. As in the Arizona design, it is located at the top centre, giving a more classic touch.
- Logo. It is presented as the main protagonist in the lower central part of the website. Undoubtedly, one of the most innovative points.
“Cairo is a transgressive design that combines the traditional presentation of photos with an ultra-modern touch through the use of pre-portal galleries with blocks that grow towards infinity. A very stylish design, with galleries that are easy to navigate and where your brand will always be visible.”
Front page of the Cairo design
On the Big web page of the Cairo design, you can add a header photo and the name of the section in question to the shortcut buttons.
These buttons, together with your brand logo, will be the main protagonists of this page. And you can change the design of your cover as many times as you want, because in addition to the Big design you have the following cover designs available: Transparent, Dream, Elegant and Impact.
Cairo Design Gallery
The Slideshow gallery of the Cairo design is ideal for your visitors to get a quick overview of your portfolio and your photography business.
When a potential customer enters this type of gallery, they will find a medium-sized image (which can be enlarged to full screen) and a series of thumbnails just below it, which will allow them to get a quick idea of the rest of the photographs that you are showing in this gallery in question.
In addition, when necessary, you can add a short text as a brief introduction to each photo.
About us” section of the Cairo design
To generate empathy and trust with your future clients, it is important that you present yourself properly on your photography website. On the “About us” page of the Cairo design you have a space where you can show (and explain) your most personal side, both through texts and images. And if you are more daring, you can also include a video presentation.
5. Photography website with New York design: for a photography business that makes an impression
If you are looking for a stunning photography website with an eye-catching design, New York is undoubtedly the design for you.
- Main menu. It is placed in the upper central part to leave more space and prominence to the images.
- Logo. Your brand will be integrated with the photographs on the top left.
“In the New York design your images take centre stage. New York is suitable for any photographer who wants to show their work in an attractive and impressive way. Ideal for weddings, advertising or landscapes, where large size photography is becoming a trend”.
Cover design New York
The shortcut buttons are given less prominence on this front page to give more weight to the header photo and logo of your photography website design.
To ensure that not a single detail of the main image is lost, a semi-transparent strip will appear to highlight the buttons when the cursor is moved closer to the button area.
Design Gallery New York
If you find it necessary to include a submenu in your image gallery, you can also customise the appearance of this element of your photography website. In this case, in the New York design we have chosen to include a Dropdown menu. And for the mobile version, you will also be able to customise the menu.
In addition, you will be able to share each image on your social networks immediately.
On our websites you will always be able to share all the content on social networks: photos, videos, a text section, a blog post, a sales gallery, or any other information you display on your photography website.
Opinions on the New York design
Creating a photography website where you give space to testimonials is essential. People who don’t know you and visit your photography website for the first time will need some reassurance that you are a great professional. Also, inviting your clients to leave their opinion on your website can be decisive for other clients when deciding which photographer to hire.
6. Creating a photography website with Venezia design: for romantic photographers
This Venezia model stands out for the originality of its design that will combine perfectly with the elegance of your photographs.
- Main menu. It is located on the right-hand side of the screen and offers visitors a direct overview of the information.
- Logo. You are going to locate it centred, just above the sidebar of the main menu, without obstructing the view of the content of your photography website.
“Elegance and class united in one place. Venezia is the city that has inspired this romantic style design to show your work in a more attractive way. This design includes dynamic galleries and a menu always visible and easy to navigate. Chosen by wedding, advertising and fashion photographers.”
Home page of the Venezia design
In this case the information and the cover photo have the same weight, this way your visitors, besides enjoying one of your best photos of your portfolio, will have all the information available.
Venezia Design Gallery
As well as being able to create sub-galleries within your galleries, you can also include videos of your sessions so that visitors can share them online. In addition, the single-column Carousel gallery design gives a very striking effect with large photos.
Because, in case you didn’t know, in the Infinite and Carousel photo galleries, you can set the number of columns or rows for each individual gallery and configure the responsive mode, which automatically adapts the number of columns or rows according to the size of the screen.
Venezia Design Blog
In this part of your photography website you will also be able to customise every detail of your articles. Thanks to the infinite design of the blog, your visitors can quickly access your content. You can choose the number of columns, switch to the Classic design, if you like to give a more classic and linear look to the contents.
You will also be able to include in each post a summary of the content with its: date, comments, title and a header image. And if you write infrequently, you can also hide the date of the articles. The possibilities for customisation are very extensive.
7. Photography website with Sydney design: for all types of photographers
Sydney is undoubtedly an elegant design where the images are once again the main protagonists.
- Main menu. It is located at the top right-hand side.
- Logo. This time, it is included in the top band of the menu and placed on the left side, giving more space to the photos and content below. In addition, the logo is automatically reduced in size when you browse a large section of your photography website, leaving the screen cleaner.
“Sydney is suitable for everyone, like a chameleon it adapts to any need, whether you are a social, nature or fashion photographer who wants to show your photos at a large size. Its grill mode galleries have won over a multitude of photographers to create their photo and video catalogue. Sydney is elegant and effective at the same time”.
Home page of the Sydney design
This is an elegantly designed page where the protagonists are again the header photo and the branding of your photography business.
On this homepage it is very easy to access the most important parts of your website, your social networks or other sections that you consider important.
Design Gallery Sydney
When making a photography website with this design, your visitors will be able to enjoy your photographs at full size and at a “glance” they will appreciate the quality of your work thanks to the integrated image viewer that allows them to enjoy them up to 2000 pixels in size. In addition, this gallery is presented in grid mode and it is very easy to navigate and view your entire portfolio quickly and comfortably.
As with all galleries, you will also be able to create sub-galleries with the different sessions or categories of your work and include your Instagram gallery.
Design contact Sydney
The contact section will be one of the most important pages of your photography website. Without it, visitors will never become clients. Therefore, it must have an attractive design, be concise and above all, it is very important that it fulfils its function: to communicate with you through various channels. Our websites, in addition, in their mobile version allow your user to contact you via SMS and WhatsApp, which is a basic need for communication nowadays.
Public and private galleries are always available on your photography website
Providing a premium service to your clients on your photography website is essential to keep them satisfied and to make them speak highly of you as a professional photographer.
Therefore, when creating a photography website, if you include different ways to earn money, such as: private online photo selection, sale of images in print or digital download formats, private photo and video presentation galleries, and more options that you will have at your fingertips, your profits will grow and you will be much happier.
For this reason all our customers who enjoy any of the 6 Business plans can include public galleries to offer the sale of photos, videos, services and products. And for customers who have contracted a Web plan, they will be able to offer their customers a series of private galleries so that they can view a sample of photographs, select, purchase, download or print in professional formats their images.
These two business tools will be essential when it comes to directly selling your images, videos, products or photography services and will become essential when creating private galleries for the selection or downloading of photos.
In addition, you will also be able to create several separate online shops on your photography website if you need to differentiate, for example, the sale of sports photography from the sale of your photographic services and products.
