Using Squarespace Cover Pages for Your Photography Portfolio

Using Squarespace Cover Pages for Your Photography Portfolio

One monumental challenge for any photographer is presenting his or her work. When you have a reasonable sized body of work, it must be presented in a thoughtful way if you want people to be able to enjoy your photography online. Dumping 200 portraits into a gallery and slapping a 'Portraits' link on it just won't cut the mustard. Especially when you consider the many people who access your site from a mobile device. Squarespace Cover Pages are a great way to provide a doorway.
