I'll ShowIt to Ya!
Pretty, huh? I have been wanting a new website for years for my business. I made my original site all by myself and it was fine, but boring. I spend a lot of time visiting other photographers' sites to see what everyone is up to, and I'm always so jealous of their gorgeous sites with things flying in and out. I really wanted a nice site, but I couldn't justify a pretty new site over buying camera equipment.
It seems like the most popular tool photogs are using these days to create their sites is from a company called ShowIt. All the big name, young, hip portrait photographers have these sites, but at $35/month, I just couldn't bring myself to do it. Then those fantabulous folks at ShowIt decided to offer a FREE version. In just 45 minutes, and a little tinkering w/ their design to make it more my own, I created my very own hip website. It was super easy, and they give you 5 pages free. All that was left to be done was to set up www.nemecphotos.com to automatically redirect to the site (thank goodness I know SOME coding), and voila! Done!
If you are a small business owner looking for a new digital face for your business, I highly suggest ShowIt. I can see that as I expand my business, I can easily update this site, and eventually move to the Pro version with ease.
With that problem solved, I'm left with only one more problem to conquer today: which show (out of Heroes, How I Met Your Mother, or House) to sacrifice tonight because I can only DVR two!
I'm Amanda. I'm an engineer in an industry full of men, a professional wedding and family portrait photographer, a firefighter's wife, a traveler, and a dogMa.
