Format: Paperback
I've been working at getting a class together on just the subject of putting a photo website up with WordPress for a couple of months. About the time I finished, I came across this book that had pretty much what I'd been working through. Isn't that the way it goes. Rafael Concepcion pointed out a couple of things I missed, so I am very happy to have gotten this. I think that he has done a good job of putting together a solid cookbook of steps that should get most people up and running in a reasonable amount of time.

Beyond the details of setting up the site itself, the book covers getting photos ready for web display. It's not difficult but paying attention to the instructions will give you the best quality/loading speed compromise.

Concepcion has done an admirable job of covering the bases when it comes to setting up a Wordpress photo site on Godaddy.com, which is not the simplest hosting service to navigate. One thing I should mention is that though Godaddy offers quality, low cost web hosting they will attempt to sell you a number of services that you probably don't need. Just say no to up-sells. Go with the account recommended in the book and ignore the rest.

The steps are thorough and well documented, including appropriate screen shots. The added website how-to videos are a good bonus. The recommended plugins for photo galleries are excellent as are the other recommended plugins. Coverage of WordPress photo themes and how to install them is good as is the free theme offered on the companion site to the book. No book of this size can cover every possible situation. And though WordPress is free, some themes aren't. You may choose to pay for a premium them and possibly some premium plugins.

This book is a good introduction to several aspects of getting your photography on the web, but it is just that, an introduction. From there, you are going to need to log some serious hours on each topic.

He is upfront about the fact that he recommends the services he uses, and he doesn't profit from these recommendations. But he is not a consumer reports of on-line services. I appreciate his honesty. On that subject, he uses Mpix, which everybody at NAPP (National Association of Photoshop Professionals) does, but personally, I've found them to be rather difficult to deal with, and I recently read an article comparing their print quality with WHCC and Bayphoto, that is causing me to do my own print comparisons.

I like his explanation of Wordpress the most. He gives you background explaining how it came about and how pages compare to blog posts, and some organization tips.

I was surprised that he recommends Flash-based portfolios, because I've heard other pros say they are moving their websites completely away from Flash due to the huge popularity of the iPad and the fact that Flash doesn't work on it.

His info on Digimarc and copyright was okay. I totally agree with him that it's important, I just wish he would have gone into more detail, like hitting the obvious problems you'll run into, common confusions and such. But he overall simply refers you to their websites. There is a book that discusses copyright in more detail Photographer's Survival Manual: A Legal Guide for Artists in the Digital Age (Lark Photography Book).

Format: Paperback
Every serious photographer wants a web site and with some of the easy to use on-line tools available it's easy to create such a presence. "Get Your Photography on the Web" handholds you through this process.

In the first few chapters, "RC" Concepcion shows you how to set up an account on GoDaddy, to construct a basic photo blog and gallery using WordPress software, and to customize it, including adding plug-ins and themes. In subsequent chapters, he discusses printing images on line, creating a flash-based portfolio, social media, and creating web galleries and uploading them to a hosting site. Between chapters he introduces you to various designers and bloggers.

The author discusses how some of the various software menus, buttons and sliders in the software work in just enough detail to allow the novice blogger to sort out the complexities of the WordPress dashboard, whose online help is not always the simplest to use.

Still, in a book for beginners, it would be useful to mention some of the tools and traps that might not be readily apparent. A typical example is his instruction on how to add one's contact information to a photograph file by opening up "File Info" in Photoshop. What he doesn't mention is that this tedious task can be accomplished more easily by creating a metadata template in Adobe Bridge which will do this for the photographer automatically.

He also does not mention other options that are open to the photographer. For example he suggests that you open a payment-based hosting account on GoDaddy, but there are also a number of similar sites that are available for free, or which the reader may already have access to at no additional cost, such as from his ISP.
