    I have a friend who is going to build me a website and I want to show him a couple of ideas on what I'm looking for. I'm looking for a site that has an intro with a few brief photos and then a nice elegant photo gallery. I've been looking on google but haven't found exactly what I want. Anyone have any examples to share? Thanks.

    I used Blu Domain. They have all flash sites... and many here are not fans of flash sites... but they do a nice job.

    Have you read any thread here? Go to one with more than 10 replies and look at peoples' signatures. Web sites abound.

    I consistantly hear lots of nice things said about SquareSpace - and certainly some of the photography portfolio sites I have seen on there seem nice.

    whole heap of samples @ Examples - Squarespace

    I would strongly recommend against a Flash site for two reasons:

    1. issues with Flash and search engine optimization (SEO).
    2. slower loading times for images with people on slower internet connection speeds

    I personally have a wordpress photoblog (hosted through Blue Host; largely used for work testing purposes), which seems to be fairly popular with a number of photographers.

    Some other sites you might want to look at as samples of other sites:
    Chromasia
    TopLeftPixel

    I think you also have to make your site decision based on what type of photography you are doing (art, events, etc.).
