... For the record I'm limited on flexibility. GoDaddy seems to be geared towards leading their customers into upgrading. I want to try to stick with this and see if I can make something work until I can get full time. ...

GoDaddy apparently includes Wordpress installation with all of its plans. You can get a quick start by setting up a Wordpress site with seamless links to 500px, flikr, or similar.

Your most important job is to provide great content (writing and photos). Leave the design of your site to one of the free content managers (like Wordpress) so that you can concentrate on your message.


Replacing my Canon 7D, Tokina 12-24mm, Canon 17-55mm, Sigma 30mm f/1.4, 85mm f/1.4, and 150-500mm with a Panasonic Lumix FZ1000. I still have the 17-55 and the 30 available for sale.

Not sure what it is about this photo but there seems to be some distortion here and it also seems to be tilted. Or it could just be me. :)

Maybe. The columns on the right were battered pretty severely, which maes it look like it is tilted. It is a pretty typical geometry that happens with the 17mm TS-E at full adjustment, sometimes it works, sometimes not. The wood walls and columns are straight, I think it is that the lens was shifted up quite a bit and I was below and close.
Thanks for the comment.

Have a look at how I use smugmug folks. (follow the link to my webby).

It is still Work In Progress, but it really does nearly everything I need.

No worries. I also forgot to mention I like the photos otherwise. Good angles, good exposure and composition.

Kick butt photos. It's that type of image that I'm striving for.

Good job.

Thanks P12 and GadgetRick for your comments.

P12:
I agree with most of the comments about your web site. You have some fine images.
You might want to check out Photoshelter, which is what I use. They have some nice templates, nothing fancy or custom, but it suits my needs right now. Lot's of storage space also, with built in download and tracking etc.

I agree! All the verticals lean to the left. :)

Nice shots though. Looks like a great place to live!

Do any of you guys charge travel expenses for shoots that require a lot of travel?

I have a shoot that is far out of where I normally shoot. Certain distances I charge a flat fee extra for travel but this one is about a 2 hour drive.

Do you charge by the mile/km?

Oh I am and I told the agent that. Just curious how others go about charging for distance.

Yes, but I do not have a set fee. The reason is because some places up in the mountains may not be far in distance but they take a lot longer because of all the switchbacks and slow mph I have to go on the back roads.

I have my 'area' that all falls under the normal fee structure. Once you go outside that area, there is a pretty standard trip charge. If I have to go even further outside that, then I base it on time. If I have to drive 1 hour outside my normal area to get to a home, and then an extra hour back, I charge what my time is worth for those two hours. Of course, this fee will vary with the client as well. A client that orders 20 or more a year will get a lower trip charge than one that order 2 a year.


1Ds Mk II, 1D Mk II, 50D, 40D, XT (for my son), 17-40L, 24-105L, Bigma 50-500 EX DG, Sigma 150 Macro EX DG, Tokina 12-24 AT-X, Nifty Fifty, Tamron 28-300 (for my son), 580ex II, 430ex II

There are lots of ways to charge for travel ... depends what you're comfortable with ...

You could charge $2 per km to cover gas, insurance, wear-and-tear, etc ...

And/or $20 per hour on the road for your time (time that you could have spent on other shoots) ...

Here in BC I think the province states that you're allowed to charge $1.44 (or $1.56...can't remember) per KM travelled.

I would base it off a per KM rate and time rate --- that way you're getting compensated for both time and gas/wear.
