I’m excited to announce the availability of my new ebook: A Guide To WordPress for Photographers: How to build and manage your photography website using WordPress.
The idea for this book came to me after years of talking to photographers about how to best utilize WordPress—the most popular (free) open source website publishing software. I would often get comments like, “Wow, I didn’t know WordPress could do that!” or “I don’t need to pay for that??”… and so I decided to write a guide to help photographers and designers learn how to get the most out of WordPress.
Consider this ebook your in-depth guide to using WordPress. It provides step-by-step tutorials for setting up a WordPress website and integrating photography. People already familiar with WordPress will also find this book helpful as I’ve included lots of advanced material such as: how to optimize search, integration with social networks, and using meta-data from images files (or Adobe Lightroom) to organize and manage photos. Just take a look around my website to see the principles of this book in action.
If you know of any photographers, designers or developers who might find this book of interest, please share a link to this post on your blog, Facebook, Twitter, Google+. All shares are greatly appreciated!
Here is the book’s offical synopsis:
This in-depth guide to using WordPress provides all the information needed to setup a professional website for your photography or take your existing site to the next level. A cohesive and well-designed website is the single most important way to showcase and promote your photography online, and thanks to WordPress, building one doesn’t have to break the bank. While there are numerous WordPress resources on the web, none are written by a photographer for photographers. This book was specifically designed to maximize website usability for potential customers and help you avoid time consuming mistakes. Step-by-step guides will teach you everything about setting up WordPress, choosing a theme/design for your website, and adding content. Also included are advanced techniques for working with image galleries, importing image meta-data, optimizing image search, and a whole lot more!
