Basic Web Design for Photographers

This is a beginning level workshop designed to help tech-shy photographers take control of their online presence. Whether you ae looking to migrate from a platform that is not serving you well, or you are starting from scratch. If you find the process overwhelming, this workshop is for you.  In this workshop you will learn how to creating a clean, well-structured website that highlights your work, and is easy to maintain. You will be guided through the basics of creating a portfolio-based website using the Wix “drag and drop”, no-code platform. In the 4 workshop sessions you will learn how to modify a Wix template to create customized home, contact and about pages; as well as image galleries and a primary gallery catalog page. We will also discuss website design, menu and site structure, search engine optimization (SEO) basics within the Wix tools set, and moving or adding a personal url to your Wix site.

To get the most out of this workshop, participants should be prepared to come to the first class with a short bio and headshot, at least one edited portfolio (or body) of work, and any artist statements that accompany the work. If this is not possible, stock or place holding images and text can be used where necessary, as these can be easily updated at a later time.

Instructor

As an artist, musician and graphic designer, Nicole LeCorgne has been designing promotional graphics and building her own websites, as well as consulting with fellow artists in these areas, for over 20 years. As an arts administrator and curator, Nicole views to artist’s websites on a regular basis, and often makes hiring or curatorial decisions based on how well those sites highlight an artist’s work.

Originally from New Orleans, LA, Nicole LeCorgne is a photographer specializing in wet plate collodion and historic printing processes. She developed a love for darkroom processes and photography as fine art while an undergraduate at University of New Orleans, but spent the greater part of her career as a percussionist, educator, and ethnomusicologist specializing in music of the Middle East before returning to the darkroom and fine art photography.

Nicole is a Fulbright scholar with an MA in Ethnomusicology from Wesleyan University, and an MFA in Photography from Savanah College of Art and Design. She has photographed in Saudi Arabia for Aramco World Magazine, and has work included in collections such as the Smithsonian Institution and the Awagami Paper Museum in Japan. Nicole is currently the Programs Director, Associate Curator, and Web Designer for the Atlanta Photography Group. She lives in Marietta, GA.
