Hi all!

I wondered if anybody had any recommendations for me? I want to start up my own photography business and really need to get a website up and running as soon as poss.

I can't afford to pay someone else to deign a website for me so I am just planning on using a website company with template designs already created.

Does anybody have any experience of a cheap-ish website company that I could use to set up my site? I am looking for professional looking templates with an integrated online shop facility so that I can sell prints via my website.

Who do you all use?

Thanks in advance!

Photium. You really can't go wrong.
Easy to build, easy to use and the back up is very quick and reliable.

If you fancy making your own and are creative, I recommend a piece of software that I recently purchased for the same reason as yourself. It is called Serif Webplus x5. It requires no programming what so ever! Just youtube Serif Webplus x5 to see how easy it is. I used to program my own but due to busy work I find this the easy option. ANd its a very reasonably priced. It has the feature of eshop.

See what you think.

Have a look at my site created using foliopic. You can try the 14 day free trial and until the end of July have a free lite version for a year ...you need the more advanced options to sell prints though.

Websites for photographers by Photium. I started off with these guys, then much later, paid a professional company a decent wad of cash for a custom built site, before returning to Photium. Along the way I've tried a few other template sites but none have come close in terms of ease of use and customer support. No relation, just honest opinion.
