His knowledge of the inner-workings of WordPress and the Web have saved my bacon on more than one occasion. If you are trying to establish a presence on the Web or just want to improve on what you already have, you need this book!"
—Jeff Revell, PhotoWalkPro.com

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.

Many of my friends are interested in setting up their own web site, so I'm familiar with the kinds of frustrations they experience as they look through all of the options and try to determine which one is best for them. Some are photographers, some are designers, but none of them are web builders. They don't want to be web builders and they don't have a large budget to hire someone to develop a custom site. Still, they need a site that they can customize to represent their identity online. I had the same problem a coupe of years ago. The thing that tied it all together for me was RC's course on KelbyTraining about getting your photography on the web. It gave me just the right information to get started, and I've grown to customize my site using that foundation.

RC has taken that online course and translated it into a book that does exactly what my friends need. It provides a foundation for creative people to build their own website and customize it without spending a bundle of money. Using WordPress CMS as a foundation, RC explains how to configure it, dress it up with a great theme from recommended designers, get your galleries online, and include commerce to sell prints or designs with a plugin that takes the order and sends it to a service for fulfillment, and more.

When I first opened this book, I appreciated that RC got right into the meat of the subject. There was no long preamble, just solid information to get you started right away. He provides clear examples with plenty of screen shots and photos to illustrate what you will see online as he guides you through setting up your accounts and web site.

No book is going to be all things to all people, and that's not his intent.

I think that writing a book is one of the hardest things someone can do. Partly because if takes a huge amount of discipline and dedication to a single subject, and partly because I have a learning disability that makes writing a challenge. So both of those things have always had me in a little awe of authors.

Rafael "RC" Concepcion recently released a new book from Kelby Media and Peach Pit Press titled Getting your Photography on the Web. I think you have to be a little crazy to write a how-to book about cameras and computers. The challenge with such a book is finding a way to ensure that your target audiences needs are meet and being thick skinned enough to deal with the gamut of opinions from people who think they are way smarter than the author. I have spent a good deal of my career in the high-tech industry, and I have read lots of books about all sorts of technical subjects. One of the things I most enjoyed about RC's book is that he as done a great job of creating a book that meets and matches the exceptions he sets in his readers. He knows his target audience and speaks to them.

This books is not for website developers, gear heads, hard-core do it yourselfers, and anyone who is looking for very specific technical answers to how the ins and outs of the internet technologies work. This book is for the photographer or artist who knows they need to be on the web and doesn't know how to get started. I also think it is well suited for the person who has setup a website and then ask now how do I make all this work and make it easy.

One of the biggest challenges with a book like this is where do you start and how do you remove all the noise of the web. There are literally thousands of hosting companies, publishing options, and site development options.
