Hi, Im looking at doing a bit of photography part time as ive had a few offers of late, A good website (not for advertising yet) for people to see my work is somthing i think i need, Ok so im on here, flickr and blipfoto as well as facebook so i could always point people in these directions BUT i thin it looks more professional with my own website.
Problems with this are.. Cost, i have no idea how much this costs and if it is worth the cost,
How, how do i go about making a professional looking website?
I need all the help i can get... Thanks

Use a service like foliopic, which you can try for free
Or Photium - again .... free.
In fact, the original EPZ website was originated by the guy who runs Photium...
Weeblyyou can set up a site for free.It is drag and drop with a pro service which you can pay for.
http://www.weebly.com/link/nBnopd You get a months free Pro service as a trial with chance to upgrade this upto six months by getting people to build a site.
Moonfruit is another service.
I use Foliopic and it's really easy to use and I have no knowledge of website building at all.
A free one I've sen a few people use is Wix. They have lots of free templates on there.
If you want to make your own I would recommend "Serif WebPlus X5". Its very easy to use, great support and the picture galleries (inc Pro Flash and Light box) are brilliant. No coding is needed and its a reasonable price. It also includes 6 months hosting. Youtube it to see how easy things are.
www.webs.com. It's free.
I tried Webs and they froze my account after a few weeks, because of 'inappropriate material' (Landscapes and travel??!!!) and when I asked why, my request was originally dealt with by saying all fixed. It wasn't. I asked again and all contact was ignored, for several weeks. I abandoned them and later tried Photium. Easy to use. Will is great, reponses really are in minutes, if you need help at all.
Clikpic - easy to use, plenty of styles/templates to choose from. £35 per year for 100 photos, excellent back up team if you get stuck !
I would check out Clikpic, they are inexpensive, simple to set up and provide an excellent service.
Another vote for photium, as said previously Quote: Will is great, reponses really are in minutes, if you need help at all.
and there is a range of packages to suit most peoples wallets
If you decide to try foliopic we're here to help and it integrates with ePHOTOzine.
