Would you like to build a photography website?
If you are considering building a professional photography website, it is because you want to get serious about photography and turn this hobby into your livelihood, so it is important that from the beginning you are clear about why you want to create a website.
Many years ago photographers used to build a website just because they had to, it was a kind of fashion. They would upload a few images, add their studio address and phone number and little else. Nowadays it has been proven that such websites have no sense or functionality whatsoever.
If what you want is to show your portfolio in a professional way, enhance your personal brand, have more visibility on the Internet and, ultimately, be able to get more clients than those who come to your studio and delegate tasks, here we are going to give you 6+1 reasons to create a website with us.
6+1 reasons why you will want to create a website in Arcadina
When setting up your digital photography business it is important that you keep in mind what types of services you want to offer over the Internet. You may just want to have a website where you can showcase and explain your work or you may even want to start selling online and build a digital photography business.
Here we are going to give you 6+1 reasons to choose Arcadina to build a professional and functional photography website, where you can delegate functions and do business online.
1# Create a photography website in a quick and intuitive way
When building your website on your own, it is important that you value the quality of the platform and the simplicity of its use so that the process of creating a website is as easy as possible for you. At Arcadina, one of our main objectives when creating a website is that you invest as little time as possible. For this reason, both the management panel and the content editor are very intuitive and easy to use.
In addition, with us you will have the option to create a test photography website and test with your own experience all the business solutions we can offer you and how easy it is to use our platform.
Here is a short video tutorial to get you started with your test website.
The photographer Luis Bañeres, who already has 2 websites in Arcadina, is one of the details that he has taken into account the most when it comes to trusting us.
2# Improve your SEO ranking thanks to integrated blogging
When it comes to building a photography website, if you also have the possibility of adding a professional photography blog you will be able to:
- Inform your clients of the last sessions you have held.
- Announce upcoming campaigns or temporary features.
- Show your latest awards.
- To have greater visibility on the Internet.
- Enhancing your personal brand.

If you are still not sure how to create a website for photographers with a photography blog that works, here is an article with some tips:

3# Enhance your customers’ experience with private galleries
The direct contact with the client is being lost more and more and it is becoming less and less frequent that after a photo session your clients want to come back to the studio to see their images. In this rushed world, clients appreciate that photographers have a private area on their photography websites where they can: view, download, select and buy the most interesting photos from their photo shoots.
And the truth is that the more facilities you can offer your customers, the more satisfied they will be and the more purchases they will make. And we all know that a happy customer is the best advertisement you can invest in. Photographer Ernst Prieto knows this very well and here is his testimony.
4# Sell your photos anytime in the public galleries
When it comes to consolidating your photography business it is important that you look for multiple ways of doing business and if these ways of obtaining income are through automatic sales where you will hardly have to deal with clients, all the better. Thanks to public galleries you will be able to offer for sale a series of photos and videos so that interested parties can buy them at any time without having to contact you to carry out the operation.
Having an online shop integrated into your own photography website that is easy to use and has the same aesthetics as the rest of your website will increase the passive income of your business.
And if not, just ask Enrique Medrano, from Tonos Fotógrafos, who is already on his 5th website created with Arcadina and if one thing is clear to him is that his online shops help him to get a fixed income every month. Here are his recommendations.
5# Save time thanks to the booking calendar
Another of the features that a website must have is the option for clients to book a photo shoot by choosing a day and time and paying for part of the session. This work tool, besides being very popular among clients, will allow you to save countless hours on the phone or answering emails to balance your appointment schedule.
This Booking service is perfect for photographers who are starting to consolidate their business and need to delegate part of the daily tasks.
This time we are going to share with you another video interview with photographer Antonio Siles who talks about the benefits of implementing a booking calendar on your photography website.

6# Build customer loyalty with WhatsApp chat on your website
At a time when customers want to resolve their doubts instantly and when they don’t have time to wait for an email to arrive, being able to have a chat on all the pages of your website through which your visitors can ask you any type of question in real time will be a great idea.
In addition, with the WhatsApp Business service you will also be able to maintain direct communication through the management panel with your customers to keep them informed about the status of their orders.
Another interview we would like to share with you is with photographer Rebeca Canalda.
6+1# At Arcadina we offer you 24/7 technical support
