Well, it was earlier this week on “The Grid” (my weekly photography podcast), when we asked our viewers to send a link to their websites for a critique of their layout, design, and usability.

We’ve gotten so much great feedback on this that I wanted to share it with you here since we’re all photographers (and we’re all stuck inside).

Back to Lightroom stuff on Monday, but until then, I hope you’ll stay safe and healthy, and indoors, and here’s to better days ahead. 🙂



P.S. My book editor Kim Doty is giving away some copies of the eBook edition of my “Natural Light Photography Book” today over on her Facebook page. Here’s the link (and good luck). 🙂

    Good info as usual, Scott and Erik. I have a WordPress site running a theme from Photocrati designed for photographers. It wasn’t cheap but really does a nice job.

    But if I hadn’t already made that commitment a few years ago, I would likely go with Portfolio.

    On a related note, is The Grid back to the normal time on Wednesday next week? (I nearly missed it this week because of the day/time change)

    Thanks so, so much for that Grid episode. I have 2 different totally inadequate “websites”, and have been pondering where to go from here. Surprisingly, I have sold images from my free WordPress site,, without really trying, but it is more of a blog format. You guys defined the problem clearly for me. I am going to make myself an Adobe Portfolio site, something I have been meaning to investigate. Thank you so much for this episode.
