I can help you create your SmugMug photography website that you will be proud to share.
It takes just one day of your time in person, or if virtual, several short meetings for me to build and have your website completed. For my fixed fee, I will build your website, and provide training and phone support in using SmugMug. By purchasing a SmugMug subscription through my affiliation you’ll get a discount on your first year and will be supporting my small business.
to me post-initial set-up with ready help and answers to my questions. Highly recommended.”

SmugMug Websites Designed To Date
What to Have Ready For Our First Meeting
- If you want a custom domain name, think about the names you might like to consider. Write down some ideas. We will search availability and you can make a final selection on the day we build the site.
- Login credentials to any social sites and Cloud/Dropbox sites.
- 10-20 of your favorite photos in high resolution Jpeg format. These should be in horizontal or landscape dimension and will be used on your Home Page. If you want, pick 50 and I can help you choose the top 20.
- A collection of high resolution Jpeg photos for each of your galleries (topics). These can be horizontal or vertical dimensions. We will use these to set up your galleries and feature photos. I will set up a dropbox online for you to put the photos.
- A Jpeg photo of yourself.
- An "about" description of yourself.
- Jpeg file of your logo, if you have one.
- Think about what other information (for example: books, testimonials, videos, stock photo sites, other products, workshops, guestbook) you might want to share on your website.
