Today’s #AskScottWyden is a really interesting one, and one that I wind up answering on nearly a daily basis. So I’m delighted to share this answer publicly for the world to see.
Kevin asked, “I am an amateur photographer. I am recently semi-retired and want to pursue a more focused approach to photography. I want to attempt to sell my work. I am curious if you have any tips on where to start. I know you like WordPress. I looked into them for my web presence, but it appears to be a more technical set up than I have experience. I Google searched top websites to sell photos. Some are SmugMug, iStock Photo, Alamy, Flickr, Fotolia and many more which appear to be a turnkey web set up requiring little Website design. Would you recommend this approach to one of these or another avenue? I know you are extremely busy. I do appreciate any brief reply you have time for.”
As I stated in the video, the options I recommend are either WordPress or SmugMug.
Either way you go with be fine for you to sell photos. Which to choose is 100% personal preference based on how much customization and control you want.
