Hi everyone! I've been thinking for a long time about having my own website. Does anyone on here fancy writing one for me, or have any recommendations as to who I could use? I have a budget of about 500, but am not sure what the going rate is.

Any offers?

you can spend 100 to 100k and on

firstly you need to decide what you want out of a website, some of the gallery hosting sites are a very good way to showcase your work,

trawl the net and try to find sites you like the feel of, or specific items within a site you like,

the design and functionality of a site can be left to others, but you will need to work on the content, what images you want to use and where, what you want to say etc, the more time you spend on this the happier you will be with the end result

Hi Tony, I designed my own sites at

If thats simlar to what you had in mind get it touch.
What Steve suggests is good because you would need to give a designer an idea of what your looking for.

Hi Tony,

Have you looked at one of the pre-built solutions such as photium or clickpic ?

They're less flexible than a custom built site but you're more likely to get something up and running quickly within your budget that way.

Another advocate for the pre-built solution - I use Photium as it fulfils all my current needs. These solutions are cheap, maybe slightly less tailor able, but they're built on pre-existing, tested technology and are great at what they do. Plus they can be set up in next to no time.

Photium! So easy, I'm moving from Amazing Internet, which is too expensive and not as good as Photium.
