My Old Photography Portfolio Is Frozen In Time
I've decided that I will no longer update my old portfolio website for several reasons which I will discuss here in this story.
My old portfolio webiste was based on a technology called Koken. Overall, I liked the way it worked and technically it still works, but it's been abandoned by the company that was working on it. Technically it's open source and written in PHP so I could dig into the source code and start modifying it but, honestly I'd rather work on a new custom website.
Most photographers faced with the challenge of a new website would reach for something like Instagram, WIX or Squarespace. I would recommend using Wordpress on your own server. I used to be a programmer so I'm not affraid of jumping into the code and getting my hands dirty. I found a cool HTML template called Story and Voilla! Now I have the foundation for my new website.
My old portfolio was mainly shot on Canon and most of it was shot in my old studio which I don't have anymore. I'm moving into a new phase in my photography work and I want to create an all new style and portfolio with my new Olympus camera. I'll be publishing all my new photos here.
