Hey, I recently read a post on the site Stuck In Customs HDR Photography (I'm sure many of you know of it and those of you that don't I suggest checking it out) about why he moved his "online portfolio" from Flickr to SmugMug. The exact link is here: How to Create an Online Portfolio Anyways, I have a question and was wondering if you guys have any input. I don't know if any of you have a SmugMug account (If you do I would like to see your stuff) but... 1) why would you go for a site like that as opposed to creating your own site? 2) Also, do you think it looks/ seems less professional to be using one of these "photo-sharing" sites as opposed to having your own? (BTW, the only value that I give in "looking professional" is grabbing that one guy who wants their photographer to look the part, so to speak. Oh and also, to whatever degree it makes you take the work seriously in a way that produces better results. Anyways...) One last question. 3) Would it matter if I lived outside of the US? Any other input into this idea would be appreciated. Just in case it matters (I'm sure it does to some of you) I would want to use the site to as a portfolio to show to potential clients.
