As a videographer, you know how to capture moving images and show the subject(s) in the best light. A videography website is no different.
The best videography websites keep the subject (i.e., videos) front and center. Anyone should be able to see your work in no more than two clicks. These are the common ways to do so:
You can use a combination of all three too. For example, a short GIF in the hero section, a “featured projects” section on the homepage, and more projects on the portfolio page.
Besides a portfolio section, your website should have an about page, contact information, links to your social media profiles, and testimonials. Everything else (like a blog) is optional.
Of course, don’t forget about web design elements. Proper whitespaces, fonts (and the copy that uses them), navigation, hierarchy, animations, responsiveness, etc., all add to the look and feel of any website, including a videographer’s website.
Want to see all the above in action? This is a collection of the best videography websites from the hundreds I came across:
Related: Jordyn has a nice link in bio website she has made with Squarespace. If you are going with Squarespace, you can make one too – you don’t need any other link in bio tools (we discuss more inside).
Alen mostly sells presets, prints, and online workshops through his site. But you can see his works on his blog.
If you make it yourself, the cost will be whatever the website builder costs. For example, Squarespace costs $16/month
A professional website designer charges somewhere between $2000-$3000 for a typical videographer's website.
Many website builders let you host videos on their servers, but they are often limited or expensive. So you can choose to upload your video on YouTube or Vimeo and then embed it on the website.
