Why build your portfolio with Zenfolio?

Frequently asked questions.

Curating different galleries is the best way to present your portfolio in a website – it is a good idea to use focused galleries, but how you focus them should be up to your own creative outlet. You can pair together galleries by specific photoshoot, themes, color schemes, or with still life, you could choose to go object specific.

Adding your blog into your website is a great way for you to provide more context and background on the still photography shoots that you’ve done and items in your portfolio. You will be able to share your creative processes, your inspiration, and some of your knowledge in the industry – all great things that could spark interest in potential clients and open up opportunities. You can also use a blog as a way to highlight your technical skills and knowledge of still life photography (e.g. lighting, composition, product placement.)

Your Zenfolio website includes the option to use BookMe – this tool allows you to set up an automated workflow for online scheduling and booking. You will be able to link your calendar to the tool and set your custom availability, so that potential clients can choose from times that are available for them to book your services, even collecting payment. This means you will be able to book all your sessions in one place and have it sync with your availability and with your personal calendar.

Adding in an image search tool on your website is a good way to help organize your still life photography collections. A search tool allows you to tag your photographs and then make them searchable by keywords for users, so they can instantly find photos and videos with a few clicks.

SEO, or search engine optimization, is what will get your website discovered and attract potential still life photography clients. Zenfolio templates are built optimized to help you improve your search rankings. Adding relevant titles and keywords to your images is one of the best ways you can optimize your site. Things like adding blogs and updating your site regularly are another way to improve your SEO.

What is most important when building your online portfolio is to always remember quality over quantity – make sure that you are choosing a diverse set of still life photographs to show a range in your abilities. To create high-quality images, you need to make sure that you are using proper equipment and exposures. If you are just getting started in still photography, it is also important to make sure that you spend adequate time in the editing stage to ensure that the colors are accurate and the photograph is sharp.
