Hi, I'd like some advice about how to plan a photography web site. Basically, I'd like to start out by publicly displaying my own images. Then, if the site becomes popular, I may also allow others to register an account and add their own images for sharing. In the future, I may also consider a blog about photography.
So, that said, I'd like some advice on where to start. Perhaps I should begin with simply sharing my images, then build from there - not sure if that's the right approach. I know how to register the domain name, but not too sure what type of hosting package a photography web site would require. I'm also not sure how much storage space I would need to purchase initially. I'm almost certain I can add server storage space as time goes on, but I'd like to begin with something reasonable were I can display a few hundred images and then grow from there.
Any additional advise you can give me would be greatly appreciated.
BTW, I know I can use Flickr to display my images, but I'd like to have my own web site with my own photographic genre.
Thanks for your help,
