PhotoShelter Launches Beam Portfolio Websites

PhotoShelter has just launched their new photography portfolio website platform called Beam.
It’s an awesome portfolio website platform for professional photographers because it’s also connected to e-commerce, cloud storage, image delivery, client proofing and marketing tools for professional photographers.

Beam includes integration with popular social media, blogging and video tools like Instagram, Tumblr, Vimeo and WordPress, allowing users to add content from those platforms to their Beam site, and to easily share content from their site to other platforms.

Beam is available immediately, at no cost, to current PhotoShelter users with Standard and Pro accounts, and to non-users on a 14-day trial basis. After the 14-day trial, new PhotoShelter users can pay either $29.99 per month for a Standard account, which includes a Beam site, 60GB of storage and all of PhotoShelter’s other tools, or $49.99 for a Pro account with 1000GB of storage.

The Site Builder tool allows photographers to quickly update the look of their site and requires no coding experience. At launch, Beam offers four different portfolio website designs using HTML5 and CSS3, which the company says will allow images to render on virtually any digital device.

I stopped by their offices in early June to check it out.

Beam makes a great service even better. PhotoShelter is my number one choice for image delivery to clients. Unlike uploading to a clients FTP – it’s foolproof. I switched over to PhotoShelter for all uploads after one too many panicked call from a client after their FTP was wiped clean by their IT department before they could download their images. Give them a try – you can save a few bucks with this code.

  1. Liked the graphic aspects of the new templates but was not real thrilled that all my info (bio, links, etc.) don’t automatically carry over from my existing site.
