Show them you’re serious about work by using a .photography domain
Your photography portfolio is the result of your hard work, sweat, and possibly even a few bruises. So, you should give it the best shot at being seen and remembered.
Having a great website and choosing a suitable domain name will give your work a chance to shine and help attract clients.
The .photography domain extension is a great way to stand out in a digital space like renowned photographers like Sean Tucker (seantucker.photography) and Steven John Irby (stevesweatpants.photography). It’s easy to remember and makes you instantly recognizable as a photographer.
You also have a much better chance of finding a domain name that aligns with your brand. How about wedding.photography or family.photography for a portfolio website? Both of these fantastic premium domain names were available at the time of publication, along with thousands of other memorable, SEO-optimized domains.
