Pick of the week: Zenfolio

As a photographer, marketing your skills is essential to the generation of new business. And the best manner in which to market photography skills are through the display of said art works. In essence, there are two choices presented to the average photographer: host your own portfolio or host in online. There are many advantages and disadvantages to both options, but hosting online is becoming more and more popular and for several reasons.

One of the best that I've found is Zenfolio. Their professional looking site, along with an incredible feature set, allow photographers to spend more time taking pictures and less time setting up a beautiful gallery.

Go take a look and take advantage of the free trial offer. You won't regret it.

Someone sent me a link to this page a few weeks ago and I thought that I would share it with you. The Encyclopedia of Life is an ambitious project that seeks to create a page for every single living organism on this planet. A tall order for sure, but an interesting project to be sure.

Go take a look, it really is a worthy reference tool.
