Money for something
« on: August 19, 2013, 12:53:05 AM »
I take a great deal of pictures at my Kids' sporting and school events. Many parents ask me to try and take some shots of their children. I had an idea of posting these event photos on a website much like the companies do in various running races (5k, 10k, marathon, etc.) and earn some money for my gear. What's the best site to accomplish this task?  Or would be better to pay someone to develop a website for me?

Take a look at SmugMug.

I post images on my SmugMug site, but I give them away, I'm in it for fun.

Instead it's a money for nothing and pics for free thread.

If you need a gallery site, try 4ormat. Very nice and lots of templates. You can get the site up and running in minutes.

Been looking at providers for the same reason myself.  Smugmug looks like exactly what I want,  problem is the name. Doesn't sound professional to me, more like a kiddie site or something!

Just get yourself a domain name - as easy as that. Just like the rest of the pros on smugmug  :P
