I really enjoy Flickr. It serves me well. I’m able to interact with my friends’ photography, and meet new people. I’m able to get a decent sized audience to view my work, and sometimes get their reaction and critique.
The one thing, though, is that I can’t really sell my work on Flickr. If I’m hired to shoot a family’s portraits, Flickr isn’t always the best place to help that client see and purchase their work.
You probably know that I also love Smugmug. Without turning this into a sales pitch for Smugmug, I thought I’d simply mention that I’m slowly reworking my Smugmug account, to be my professional gallery. The place where a client can go to view and purchase the photographs I take for them.
I’ve set it up, so that my own domain will be a part of the action. Above, on the tab bar, you may notice “Photography”. That will lead you to my Smugmug Gallery.
