It took too long to get here

Finally, a full-fledged website for my photography.

You'd think that, considering I am a web developer, that this would have been a "no brainer"...not so much.  I've created lots of sites over the years, but making my own has always been harder than it should be.  15 years ago I would have loved the thought of spending hours writing something completely unique and making it mine...today, I would rather be TAKING pictures than writing code to manage a website for my pictures.  So...I've tried some solutions that wouldn't require me to code and maintain the site.

First, I tried 500px.  I really enjoy being part of 500px at one point it looked like that would work.  I like the look and feel of the site, but selling pictures on it is problematic

Next, I found and bought a beautiful wordpress theme...  That was a bust.  I spend way too much time trying to make it look like the demos and never came close.  I finally gave up on that and  just settled on something that I thought was "good enough for now".  Then, the first time I tried using it with a client it was so slow I had to abandon it.

That leaves me back to a place that I should have started in the first place.  A professional tennis photographer that I know told me over a year ago to use zenfolio...so here I am and here you go.

I'm looking forward to building a great site and sharing photos with friends, family and whoever else is interested!
