I put up and took down photo web-sites several times. Largely because I had not thought through the strategy of how I want to market it, and what I want to do with it.
I also changed the name of how I want to promote this, from “Crooked Imagez” to “Rajiv Chopra Photography”. I like CrookedImagez, however, and will probably keep it for photo tours that I want to launch later.
This is strange, because I did consider myself to be an expert on branding and strategy. Yet, I seem to always rub my nose in the dirt when it comes to my own branding!
Anyway, now I am mulling the options of putting up pictures on Behance, or Flickr, or 500 px until I decide on my own site. Then, one of them will become companion sites.
The question is – which of these is the best to be discovered, and to have the options to sell the photos?
