    I need some help. I have requests to book 6 different sessions but i have no way to publicly post on the web when I'm available or booked. I can't afford to by one of the nice web templates from someplace like BluDomain which has a calendar already included so I have been using another template for my website.

    I have heard of Easy PHP Calendar but is there anything else out there I should check out too?

    I don't think I've ever seen a photographer's web site that actually had a calendar of when they were booked. The client has to call or e-mail to find out.

    Personally, I don't like the idea of posting when you are booked. It will only stop people from contacting you. You want them to contact you, even if they are inquiring about a date that is already booked. It opens up a dialog and may lead to business in one way or another.

    Also, do you really want to advertise on the internet, when you will and will not be home?
