The New Photography Portfolio

Introducing the Photography Portfolio Subdomain

photo-jcdotcomThat would be photo.jeffchappell.com. I’ve actually been doing some photography work lately, although nothing terribly exciting (which one could argue is more my fault as a photographer, I suppose — but the client is happy). But I’ve been thinking for some time that I wanted to create a separate site or subdomain housing a dedicated photography portfolio site — as opposed to just a gallery page or using a Flickr plugin or what have you.

So that’s been this weekend’s project: photo.jeffchappell.com. Once again I tinkered around with some free WordPress themes, but in the end I decided on a responsive photography portfolio theme from ElegantThemes; I’m already a member/subscriber of this service, and its themes generally can be modded within WordPress to do what you want them to do.

On the other hand, I’ve learned that trying to pull in thumbnails from an RSS feed is problematic; that will be a task for future weekends. Anyway, I’ve also started a Photo a Day project on my personal blog, The Gecko’s Bark.

Hooray for free time.
