Are you going to create your own website or do you want to use a pre made (template) web site for photographers? bludomain.com has some really nice templates for photographers. And they can host your site if you want.

Here are some of the features from one of their $100 site packages...

3 gallery sections, with up to 6 galleries
4 text sections each with option for drop menu, stand-alone or navigation arrow
unlimited proofing galleries - supports multiple galleries per client
shopping cart - supported in all galleries
one song per gallery
one unlimited featured gallery section
site accent colors can be set per image
optional video feature
optional html
optional iphone feature
option for image background
ability to add facebook and twitter icon links
shopping cart features: pricing options per gallery and per image (retail-friendly)
shopping cart order details that are saved in cart (not the site) if exited
shopping cart in all galleries
watermark in all galleries
shopping cart can be enabled for individual proofing galleries
new and improved bulk image, video, and music uploader
slideshow intervals for homepage, galleries, and proofing galleries can be set independently
site comes with default fonts that you can select from for the section titles, default logo, menu buttons and main content
interface scales with browser
you can set the max size for the images
font size for main site elements can be adjusted
font used for title: helvetica neue condensed black
font used for menu/content: helvetica neue
NOTE: the shopping cart is NOT on the HTML add-on

There are other sites like bludomain but bludomain is pretty popular by me. Check them out. I built my own page but I am considering changing to this one. They have a really nice layout compared to mine.

I have just set up my own website as well - kaluzaimages (external link)

I hosted with HostPapa and they give what I thought is a pretty good deal at the moment, 3 years for around £135 (the £3.95 per month I think it was but you have to do it for 3 years) All in all, works out around £135.

Thats free setup, a free domain name for like, unlimited bandwith etc etc etc.

Im not saying go with HostPapa but you should check it out. They also give ou Soholaunch so you can build the website but I think that program is pretty poor and instead purchased Webplus x4. I think its cracking. Easy to use and understand with plenty of tutorials on the internet.

Oh and you get $50 free facebook advertising with HostPapa.

Also I think I heard Webplus x4 offer 18 months free hosting if you buy their product, but I hosted with HostPapa already before I knew of this.

On my experience with hostpapa, i would say avoid them. I have had probs with them including:
-2 hacked website
-email placed on blacklist due to mistake with someone else's website generating spam (same web ip address)
-Websites (and associated email accounts) suspended without warning. Took 3 days to resolve, and there was no emails telling me why until the 3rd day. Turned out they think i was violating a term by backing up my blog. Wow... my business on hold for 3 days for generating a 50 mb back-up file. Thanks hostpapa....
