RapidWeaver Project For Profi Photographers

If you're a professional photographer, you probably already know about Shootproof and Pixieset – two websites that will present and manage the sales of your professional imagery. Perhaps you were wondering just how to integrate one, or both of these products into your own homepage.
Gary, at Webdeersign has come up with a solution for both – in a new RW Foundation project.

Webdeersign specializes in prefabricated Foundation projects and his latest Project7 focuses on professional photographers. Even if you are not a photographer, however, you will find P7 interesting – it's a beautiful 'theme'. Gary doesn't like it, when I use the word 'Theme', but as far as I'm concerned – if I can download a project, insert my own data and upload a website with a minimum of exertion on my behalf, it's a theme.

When you download P7, you'll encounter a project with four pages. Don't wait for the first page to load in preview – it won't happen – the first page is 'simply' a page of notes to get you started and nothing on this page will publish. The Home page, however, as with the other pages, is entirely different. It sets out with a full screen Impact slideshow. Impact has the smoothest slide transitions currently available for RW and P7's slideshow is a pleasure to watch.
Don't worry though, if you don't have Impact in your library, you can replace the slideshow with any slider of your choice.
Above the Slider is a Top Bar Navigation that targets the individual BWD sections below – Weddings, Kids, Portraits, About and Contact. You don't shoot Weddings? Just change the name of the section, alter the link in the Top Bar and away you go!


Each section contains a couple of teaser images, each of which links to a Shootproof gallery, and a descriptive text. The About area displays a button linked to the Shootproof galleries, so if your visitor missed the links above, he's sure to get the message now. The Shootproof page loads seamlessly as if it were a part of your site.

The Footer area is interesting – as compact as it is, it contains all the relevant Contact Data, Social Links and a contact form hidden away in a Reveal lightbox.

Instead of a slideshow, Home2 displays a Hero image with the same Top Bar and a prominent button that links to the Shootproof "Client Area". The rest of the page is identical to the Home page.
Home3 is identical to Home2, but instead of Shootproof, all links lead to Pixieset. Pixieset loads just as seamlessly as Shootproof, so your visitor never has the feeling that he is leaving your site.

In case you'd not heard of either Shootproof or Pixieset before, A Shootproof or Pixieset account is required to fully utilise P7. Both are free to setup and no credit card is required by either. Currently Shootproof will host up to 100 photos free of charge. Pixieset will host up to 1500 photos free of charge. If, however, you already have an online distribution solution for you portfolio.
Or if you have a portfolio containing completely different subjects, just alter the links within P7 – there aren't many portfolio solutions that look as elegant as this!.Check out the demo pages and you'll see!
