    Photography Portfolio

    Okay it's about time I get off my butt and put together my website. It has had a splash page for ages now, and I don't send traffic that way because of that. Basically people will only find it if they type the domain from my watermark or use my business card.

    So anyway, I want to set up a blogging system and integrate it with a gallery system!

    However, most of what I find just look tacky.


    I love the way Smugmug, Zenfolio and Parade work. However, I would like to be able to host it on my own server.


    More notably, a system that looks and works exactly like this would be AMAZING:

    Can anybody help guide me to finding one? Paying for the system isn't a problem. But I just don't want a month-by-month payment plan and have it hosted on their servers. Not when I have my own already!


    I found one called jAlbum
    http://jalbum.net


    But yeah, if anyone knows of a way I can get this:
    http://hayleyhaines.paradepro.com/

    Without having it hosted by them, that would be awesome. And again, don't mind paying for the system.

    Decided to "shave" my signature ;]
    Now mostly shoots with: Canon 5D MK3 & Canon 24-70 f/2.8/50mm f/1.8 (also have a 550D with a variety of lenses/goodies and a Sony Nex-5N)
    PP with: Lightroom only, Photoshop is merely a 9-5 work tool for me.

    Interesting website. Setup in 2009 and it still doesnt work properly. The home page looks good, but there is some odd overlay when you go to slideshow mode. Not something I would want to copy at all. I can only assume it was an attempt to stop copyright theft, but in practicality it is distracting, annoying and off-putting. Certainly would not get me wanting to buy from/use the photographer.

    If you want to build your own, with galleries etc, check out : www.serif.com/webplus

    Why not email Hayley Haines? The address is on the site. (it seemed to work OK for me; the "screen" over the images only occurs if you cursor over it as far as I can tell)

    Ricktas I liked the way I could have heaps of photos on one page and have heaps of galleries. I didn't encounter any issues on that template.
    In any case whatever system they were using wouldn't end up being the final product I would be using because it's integrated in to their admin back ends and stuff.

    After I made this post I kept searching and found a couple of other solutions based around WordPress (which had been a system I've had set up on my other mini domains for a while). Which means I can customize so much myself and hopefully achieve what it is that I have been wanting and waiting to do

    Shall give it a go when I have some time! Schwing!
