I will help you create your SmugMug photography website that you will be proud to share.
Get a custom SmugMug photo website for your beautiful images or take your existing SmugMug website to the next level. I will build or update your website, and provide training and phone support in using SmugMug. By purchasing a SmugMug subscription through my affiliation you'll be supporting my small business.

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 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.
Cost of My Service
Fixed fee for website design and implementation is $800. Terms: 50% due prior to our first meeting, balance due (along with any add-ons) when the website is completed.
Alternatively, you can hire me on an hourly basis. My hourly rate is $100/hour with a 2 hour minimum. Some with an existing SmugMug website have chosen this option to use my expertise to take their website to the next level.
Ongoing support is $100/hour with a 1 hour minimum.
