When speaking about WordPress, most people associate it with blogging. But it is much more than that. It provides a customizable and undoubtedly attractive base for almost every business ranging from cafes or food blogs, freelancers of any kind, to conservative corporates.
The correct terminology for what WordPress does is “content management system” (CMS). It is just a technical way of saying that it helps web design amateurs like me or you to create and manage professional-looking websites without being a programmer. Here are only some of myriad of reasons, why to go for it.
Who wouldn’t like to save costs?
Cost is not all, but you can count on an excellent price-to-output ratio.
Discover more than 1.650 templates ranging from multiple free versions to those that cost a couple of Euros. Anyway, it still remains to be the cheapest and financially most reasonable solution. Are you already tired and afraid of cheap, not-functioning and tough-compromised solutions? This will not be the case: the gain comparing to the price is unbeatable. Just keep on reading.
Differentiation is what you need
Let yourself think out of the box! WordPress will guide you.
Do you also stumble on websites of photographers that can’t be distinguished from each other? Can you remember at least one of them? It is mainly because the approach is usually alike: a slideshow of chosen pictures or the whole gallery on the top of the page, centred, a horizontal bar added to provide visitors with „about” and „contact us” section, and that is it! Enlightened photographers know there are plenty other ways to display their artwork and give the impression of a creative professional instead of fading out of one’s memory along with the crowd. Simply get in touch with what WordPress offers and step out of the stereotypes.

Having a fancy website with the traffic of a ghost town is surely not anyone’s desire. However, bringing people to your new site can be truly expensive stuff. If you didn’t mean to employ a SEO (search engine optimisation) specialist, copywriter and buy media space, engage WordPress platform to care for it instead. WP (WordPress) provides each user with a built-in SEO automatically. What is more, by adding free plug-ins such as the “All-In-One SEO Pack”, “Robots Meta”, and “XML Sitemaps”, you can enhance the standard SEO functionality.
Keep in mind: your new WordPress site and its content can be indexed by Google within 10 minutes after being published.

Adding photos easily and with no delay is exactly what you need.
Nothing is more withering than the never-ending process from the first shot of a romantic port in Indonesia to the final picture version upload and publishing. The do-it-yourself content management system is the base point of being up-to-date and bring the followers what they are waiting for promptly. Did you know, you can add new content also via WordPress mobile application?
Application at hand
Upload new content without carrying the whole notebook along.
Managing website via application still sounds like a high-end dream to some of us. However, it is in place and wherever you are it makes you just a small step away from creating new, fresh and ultra-current content. Take your website with you everywhere you go. You have a perfect tool now to make it living, interactive and be responsive to comments.
Protect your online pictures
A WordPress plug-in allows adding watermarks online easily.
Some photographers add watermarks to their photographs to protect them from misuse. Easy Watermark plugin allows you to add automatically watermark to image uploads in WordPress. You can choose a picture, set transparency, and watermark position. The plugin can also update all previously uploaded images.
Discover the selection of free plug-ins for your WordPress website enhancement.
Another proof that WordPress is not just a pleasant space for bloggers, but literally heaven for photographers, are additional options and free features that upgrade your website. These plug-ins would be of an extra charge if demanded from the web designer. Favourable information to you is that most of your peers will simply skip it, therefore. Soon you will become the one to be way ahead.
A Must-Have for photographers is with no doubt “Simply Instagram”. This plug-in will allow you to display Instagram photos straight on your web, but selectively. You can share particular pictures, add recent uploads stream, and show popular photos out of the Instagram network.
“Pinterest Pin It Button For Images” will be the second most important additional feature you cannot avoid.
