    I'm not sure what you mean by right price. Many sites like flickr offer similar services for free so I don't think you could charge. A better plan would be to pay for the site with adverts.

    Right, my site basically hosts photo galleries for free...and there's not an abundance of traffic even at that price. I don't really see a market for paid gallery hosting as there are a number of sites willing to do it for free. I know there are sites that charge a nominal fee (like $50 a year or something) to host galleries. But i guess it all depends on how well you think you can promote the site.

    I think he's offering the entire site, domain etc... not just offering to host galleries.

    i probably would have jumped on that 4 months ago, but now have invested beaucoup time in my own site. but I'd guess there are plenty more aspiring photographers out there who hate web design. you just have to find them...
