Latest Portfoliobox updates

Updates

May 25, 2017

We've been busy fine-tuning the admin panel and improving the usability. Here is what's new: 

 

• The template selector under Create page was rejuvenated. 
• The Pro templates are now marked with a lock icon that is open is you are a Pro user and locked if you are a free one.
• Each slider is displaying the pixel value for text size, letter spacing, line height and image margins.
• Images are automatically rotated if the orientation is wrong when uploading. 
• You can fill in your contact information under Billing, if you want them to display on your invoice. 
• Gallery description Pre-styled is hidden if not available for the template.
• Page description is called Text and image description is called Description 

 

 

We've also fixed some bugs: 

 

Social media → Links: when the switch is OFF, it only turn off social media links and not the entire icon set.
• Scrolling the gallery description in Horizontal Native is now back to normal.
Service: the Circle template was displaying square images instead of round ones. It's now fixed!
Footer now displays in Horizontal Native.
Footer size: on some template, the footer did not have any size set and was as wide as the screen. It's now fixed. 
• Image viewer Lightbox displays properly. 
Instagram & Flickr Grid templates now display the images. 
Slideshow → Thumbs Right: the images are now centered. 
• The top margins have been fine tuned. The rendering was awkward on large screens.

Who are you?

My name is Kate Young, I’m 19 and will be a freshman at Ball State University this fall. I was given my first camera when I was seven; it was small and lime green and had one button. From the first click I was hooked — my hobby quickly turned into an addiction and there was no going back. Occasionally, I get frustrated while I photograph because I can never seem to fully capture the feeling of the place I’m in. Despite that, with every photo I aspire to give others a taste of a moment, the hint of a story, the feel of adventure. If I can make someone feel something with my photography, even for just a second, then I have succeeded.  

 

What is your next creative project?

My next project is a little different than others I’ve done. I’m in the process of photographically recreating a painting called “The Singing Butler”. It has always been a favorite painting of mine, full of emotion and life. I want to transfer the same feelings to the photograph — with a slight spin.

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

Portfoliobox gives a spotlight to each of my photos without effort.  As a young photographer, I needed a site to display my photography in a clean, professional, and appealing way – Portfoliobox does this and more. My photography is many things, but most of all, it is the story of me and the world as I experience it. As I have evolved, it has transformed with me.

Who are you?

I am a prolific artist. I have been painting for the last four decades. Much of my interest lies in abstract and expressionism. I have exhibited and sold art in Dubai, Kuwait, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, London and America. I currently work and live in London. I can be found at 501 Wimbledon Art Studios and sell my work through my website, online art galleries and open studio exhibitions. 

 

For me, Art is a journey of discovery, and behind every discovery is a rewarding pleasure. This gets me more engaged in my work. Each time I find myself happy with the results, I try a bit harder. I find this approach more satisfying than sitting and wondering if the painting is good or bad. Of course, sometimes it works and other times you try and try but cannot capture your inner feelings. Then all I do is move on to another piece and do the same. Such is Art and Artists, a journey of discovering yourself each time you pick up a brush. If you do what you really like and do it from your heart, it doesn’t matter what the critic says because you know better about what you are doing than anybody else. I wish all art buyers and collectors to share with me this journey of discovery.

 

What is your next creative project?

I am working on various subjects from abstract to expressionism.

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

I like Portfoliobox for many reasons, It's a great and simple way to create your own website with so much flexibility and little complications. I also like the team management they always like to offer their help when you have any question immediately. Another plus is it's not very expensive.

I've tried a few other website builders, but Portfoliobox was love at first sight :) I really like it because of its usability and the very stylish templates. I love the look and feel of the website. Also, the customer service and solution competence are great. Besides all of these Portfoliobox offers a very good pricing system. All together I am very pleased with it.

Who are you?

I’m a cinematographer based in Warsaw, Poland. Mainly, I work in Poland, but did many shoots abroad (United States, United Kingdom, India, Thailand and many others). I specialize in documentaries and commercials. I shoot projects for several polish museums and organizations as well. Documentary work is a field closest to my heart. I take pictures a lot and in every spare time. Mostly I photograph People and Landscapes.

 

What is your next creative project?

My closest future projects, which I’m very excited about, are a 30-minute feature film, which I’m going to shoot and a documentary about a famous mid-war period railway route in Poland. In this particular project, I will direct and photograph myself. Besides that, I currently work on two commercial projects, which will be finalized in may, and on a series of short reportages for Museum of Warsaw Rising.

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

First - its simplicity. Thanks to that I was able to create a simple page without spending hours on editing content or taking care of the look of the page. It works immediately. I love it. The Second thing is customer service. It is fast and helpful and thanks to the newsletter (I like it’s occasional) I’m up to date with everything new that Portfoliobox has to offer.

Who are you?

My name is Maryia. I am an illustrator, graphic and font designer. I live and work in Vilnius, Lithuania. The main of my activities are design and illustration of books, creating fonts and photography projects. I create them for my own projects and for clients. For job, I use several professional software such as: Adobe Illustrator CC, Adobe Photoshop CC, Adobe InDesign CC, Flash Professional CS5.5, FontLab Studio 5.2. They accelerate the work process, but I also work with hand-made stuff to create inimitable in its beauty material.

 

What is your next creative project?

Recently I have been very interested in the theme of gentrification, creative spaces and aspects of their development in the post-soviet realities. My first project in this field was "Vilnius Creative Space". This project covers the topic of creative spaces of Vilnius. The main audience of the project is students. Usually, students believe that the choice of places where they could present their works is rather narrow and limited to the university and special places for it. This project reports about places that encourage creative community to express themselves in some way. Selected spaces are divided into two categories: paid and free. Places that one has to pay for are hubs, institutions and places which are taxed in some ways. Free creative spaces do not charge any fees for activities and creative work based on their space.

 

This project was not the only one on this topic. I currently participate in two big projects, relating to creative industries. This is team work with Ihar Yuknevich on the conference "Create IT!"  in Minsk, Belarus. It is a meeting place for new technologies, culture and creative industries, a practice-oriented event with parallel hands-on workshops. Also, I am the designer of the first creative space "Kovcheg" in Homel, Belarus.

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

At Portfoliobox I like the simplicity and convenience of the interface. And of course the personal approach to each user.

Who are you?

I was born in Baghdad and grew up in various countries (my father was a seismologist in oil exploration) and now have dual Australian-British citizenship. I attended the Bournemouth College of art as a mature student in the early 90’s before becoming a picture editor and progressing on to management with large online startups. I returned to my roots after the internet crash of the late 90's and started up as a freelance photographer at the turn of the century.

 

My portraits are largely environmental and I try to depict all subjects, of whatever background as if their image will still be looked at generations from now. I like my images to leave the viewer with questions, to leave them wondering about the subject.

 

What is your next creative project?

I plan to substantially step up work on my project of British sculptors. I get a frisson of excitement working with important artists who are not only and invariably fascinating people but also understand the photographer's process. I find it both humbling and encouraging to spend time with them.

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

Portfoliobox is great because it is intuitive yet allows a great deal of customisation without looking formulaic. I have had other people build my websites and I have worked with WordPress and Muse but simplicity quickly turns to complexity when trying to achieve the same individuality you achieve quickly with Portfoliobox.  Now I am able to add and adjust easily without having to get someone else to do it or spend valuable time reacquainting myself with the technical. i.e. as a photographer, I don’t have the time to be doing website maintenance enough to stop me forgetting how to do it!

Into the world of creatives

May 08, 2017

 

Who are you?

I’m a media creator and photography/filmmaker enthusiast born and raised in north Italy.

 

What got you started into photography?

What brought me into photography was the passion for travel. I always travelled since I was a kid with my family and this passion gives me the need to provide memories in the best possible way, so I choose photography.

 

 

 


Liguria

 

 

 

How would you qualify your work?

Talking about my trips, my work is quite simple, it is a mix of blogging and reportage about my experiences in which I try to show, in a series of photos, what I’ve seen and what struck me the most. I’m not really good in words, my captions and my “story-teller” side are not the best, so I try to be as good as I can with the visual side.

What role plays your online portfolio in work journey?

My portfolio plays an important role in my journey, it is my main platform to showcase my work in the best and most professional way. Social Media are important, but in my opinion having a personal website gives you that final touch that every creative should have. I update it pretty often, almost every day I change minor things like one photo, the font or simply the colour of the links. I also try to keep it up-to-date all the time with my latest photos, projects or collaboration.

Your photos are vibrant, what material do you use?

I use a DSLR (Canon 6D) with different lenses (16-35, 50, 100, 70-200) to shoot my photos and sometimes a GoPro to take some underwater shots or some action videos. In my work, what plays an important role is the edit, in which I try to reflect myself or the emotions that those landscapes or streets made me feel at that moment. The photo itself is what I’ve seen, but the edits tell how I felt in front of that view.

 

Could you describe your workspace, when not on a trip?

Today, you can make your workspace literally everywhere. When I’m not travelling, I keep it really simple, all I need is my laptop, a desk, some hard drives, my headphones and a coffee. These are the essentials for me to feel inspired and create stuff.

 

Could you share with us an anecdote about one of your photos?

When I photographed a running white Rhino in South Africa, more than an anecdote it’s a real life experience that probably happens once in a lifetime. We were having a game drive in the bush when we stopped and we walked slowly to a White Rhino (they have a really bad sight), he suddenly started to run and the ground literally started to shake, I had my camera ready and this was the shot that iI took.

You have travelled a lot, what's your best journey so far?

I really fell in love with Asia, especially Hong Kong. I found myself like a kid in Disneyland, every single corner has something to offer, to show, to tell, and it’s not something you find easily. In that city, I found everything new, everything interesting but the thing that I liked the most was the great contrast between nature and city side, although people think urban density is the only thing you can find in Hong Kong, well it’s not true, few bus stops away from the centre you can get this view.

 

 

 


Hong Kong

 

 

It’s safe to say anyway that Hong Kong has one of the best cityscapes in the world, so I’d pick up “the peak” as one of the best location to shoot and enjoy a surreal view. This said, I really have to mention that every single trip I’ve done was something beautiful and unique that I will remember for the rest of my life.

 

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

I like Portfoliobox because it is really easy to use, very intuitive and the optimisation of the content for different browsers works really well. Also, the number of pages and photos to upload is really high, which is really important to me. Another thing is definitely the value for money and the new App for smartphone, that makes all the little changes so easy and quick to do. I’m happy with the product in all the different aspects.
