Day Twelve of our twelve days of Christmas Gifts for Photographers


Today I want to look at an easy to use website builder for the photographer in your life. What better gift than the gift of allowing the photographer in your life to showcase their work for the world to see... and if they can make some money through the sale of some of their photos... hey!!! that's not a bad thing... it helps them buy their own photography gear next year. ;-)

Squarespace offers a plethora of templates to choose from. You can then take those templates and customize them to suit your individual needs... from photo sizes, to different eCommerce options, the templates are extremely intuitive for the photographer.

Squarespace offers a wealth of really cool features, some of the most remarkable include Multiple Contributors, eCommerce platform and also importing/exporting features: Squarespace allows you to transport your blog to any other place. This means that when selecting Squarespace you’re not risking to lose your precious work... and just in case you feel that Squarespace isn’t the best option for you, you can cancel your subscription and take your blog elsewhere anytime. I like this policy. You can also import an existing blog to Squarespace from WordPress, Tumblr, Blogger and other services.

What’s more, on Squarespace you also get advanced tools to search optimize your website.

You can get Squarespace for $24 a month. Visit for more information
