We're happy to announce we will be part of the WPPI 2011 trade show. WPPI stands for Wedding & Portrait Photographers International. Their annual convention is one of the biggest in the photography industry, with last year's convention drawing over 12,000 photographers and several hundred exhibitors to their trade show. The convention runs from February 17-24, with the Trade Show on the 21st through the 23rd. For anyone who hasn't been, it is an amazing opportunity to learn from speakers and classes that offered throughout the week, meet and network with thousands of photographers, get inspiration from the incredible print competitions, and of course to meet us! We will have some great giveaways and surprises, so keep following us and stay tuned for updates. We'll be in booth #1453, if you're there in person stop by and say hi!

Early in 2009, we sat down to discuss a more efficient way for photographers to display their work online. We had been working with photographers, and discussed the idea of an all-in-one blogsite that looks and feels like a flash site, with all the SEO benefits of a WordPress Blog. We made our wish list; social media integration, customization, easy-to-use backend, unlimited galleries, integration of fantastic photography tools like ShootQ, etc, etc. After developing many, many custom blogsites, we saw our theories in action and set out to develop Photography Blogsites.  Affordable, Easy-to-use, WordPress Portfolio Websites for Photographers. We are offering an introductory lifetime membership for $499. That includes our search engine optimized blogsite, any new themes, 4 GB of hosting, our support, maintenance, upgrades and much, much more. For a full list of features visit our features section. No recurring costs...ever! But act fast! The offer will expire 11:59 PM
