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 positioned properly 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. Tokyo photography web design: for minimalist photographers

In Tokyo web design, you will surprise your clients and followers with an unexpected and groundbreaking design.

  • Main menu. It is located at the bottom of the screen and floating above the images. A somewhat unusual location that gives this design a more striking point.
  • Logo. It is located at the top left-hand side of the screen.

“Tokyo is a groundbreaking photography web design, offering you an explosive mix of full screen images, minimalist design and smooth transitions. It’s different colour versions and the option to choose the backgrounds will allow you to change the look of your website very quickly. If you want to make an impact with a different design, Tokyo is your best ally”.

Web presentation of the Tokyo design

This is the first impression that your visitors are going to get of your work and that is why, in Tokyo design, the first thing your future clients are going to see is a slide show of photographs or a large video.

In addition, to give greater visibility to your images or video, the main menu is located on a semi-transparent strip that will not obscure any detail of the photograph.



Photo gallery and videos of the Tokyo design

A differentiating point of this photography web design is that the galleries and sub-galleries appear at the top of the screen and if you find it interesting, you can also add a representative image for each one. It is an accordion menu, flexible, which expands and shrinks when you move the mouse pointer over it, achieving a very original and eye-catching effect.

Did you know that in any Arcadina photography web design you can add photo galleries or videos and integrate Instagram accounts?


Tokyo Design Services section

When explaining how you work in your photography business, it is important that you explain as much information as possible in a very clear and visual way. That’s why, in the services section of the Tokyo photography web 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.

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 Design Gallery

The Slideshow gallery of the Cairo photography web design is ideal for your visitors to get a quick overview of your portfolio and, ultimately, of your photography business.

When a potential client enters this type of gallery, they will find a medium-sized image (which they will be able to enlarge 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 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.

The shortcut buttons have less prominence on this front page to give more prominence to the header photo and itogo of your photography business.

In order not to miss a single detail of the main image, 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 website. In this case, in the New York photography web design we have chosen to include a Dropdown menu. And for the mobile version of your website, you will also be able to customise the menu.

Opinions on the New York design

Designing a photography website where you give space to testimonials is essential.

Online shop and customer area always available in your photography web design

Providing a premium service to your clients is essential to keep them satisfied and to make them speak highly of you as a photographer or videographer.

If you include in your photography business different ways to earn money, such as: private online photo selection, selling images in print or digital download formats, private photo and video slideshow albums, 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 with a Silver plan or higher, can include an online shop for: selling photos, videos, services and products.

And for customers who have a Gold or higher contract, they can offer their customers a private area to: view a sample, select, purchase, download or print in professional formats their images.



These two tools are essential when it comes to directly selling your images, videos, products or photography services and will become essential when creating private albums for the selection or downloading of photos. In addition, you will be able to create several completely separate online shops on your website, if you need to differentiate the sale of sports photography from the sale of your photographic services and products, for example.
