    You should look into SmugMug, Flickr, Zenfolio, etc. Sure, they cost money, but they look better than anything you can build yourself unless you have some experience.

    I personally would build sites in dreamweaver or flash.

    My vote is for Smugmug, as a long time Smugmug user I can attest to the ease of setting up my site they way I wanted it. They have a free trial if you want to check it out.

    What about security (as far as people stealing your work)?

    I agree. With the arrival of "web 2.0" it's easier and effective to use
    ready-to-go platforms like those. You can get your own webhosting
    also and use open-source scripts like Joomla but if you're not a geek,
    there's a learning-curve as well as server admin security
    considerations.

    Personally I like the paid hosting services provided by servage.net
    and the blog/photo networking at ipernity.com. Ipernity is the best
    interface i've come across.
