I’ve been in desperate need of an online portfolio/ website for at least two years now. While my internet presence is probably okay, every photographer needs a centralized, streamlined place to display his or her work.
In an ideal world, I’d have a website to which clients could be referred; however, I’m not the type to have one built for me, so until I can find the time, I’ll stick with another, temporary solution.
Enter Cargo Collective:
I was immediately drawn to the site’s clean design & good typography. I hope that the site I design for the future home of C. Wade Photography will look as good. Cargo Collective, which was spawned by the SpaceCollective (it’s neat- worth a look) community, is currently in Beta; beta accounts are free for one year, providing your application is selected.
Finally, here are screenshots from each of my current project pages:
The most difficult part of creating these projects is, by far, coaxing my internal editor out of his very dark and remote lair. Which photos are good enough? Really, where can you draw the line when it’s all subjective, anyway? Is the set cohesive? Does this image represent my PoV as a photographer, or is it merely a halfway-decent shot?
To be honest, there are photos included right now which I am on the fence about.
For instance, these aren’t up, but I really have no idea if I want them to be:
One the one hand, there is an indefinable quality about them which I like; on the other, the star-filter is a little wonky. I suppose the fact that I’ve got reservations is a sign they aren’t good enough, eh? (I’m glad you braved the daylight, editor.)
If you’ve got the time, I welcome any and all criticism/ ideas/ nay-say.
