Tess has some great ideas, and I agree that adding text/descriptions is vital. Especially when you solve a particular problem. It’s really nice to say to a potential customer, “We had this same challenge here and this is how we solved it”.

We take a lot of pictures if we think they are interesting only to get back to the office and wonder what were thinking when we took this. We often get a couple of good shots and now i will use them as a project spotlight.

Thank you again

However, here is an example of a website we did that has a nice project spotlight portfolio. http://www.dombachbuilders.com/bradford-model-at-summit-pointe-at-elm-tree/

Always happy to answer questions!

A bit late on this post, but a question:
What did you use to lay out the Project Spotlight page? I see two layouts (9 photos, 2 photos before and after overlay). Is that two templates?
Hints for a moderately adept WordPress user?
Thanks very much for going back in time. 🙂

That way, as you are talking about a particular skill or service you provide, you can pull it up on your iPad or laptop and show the homeowner … along with leaving a “leave-behind.”

Thanks for commenting! Good Luck!

We have a professional photographer and local writers to help us obtain the proper handouts for our clients. It is just doing it. The article was great, very informative and open our eyes a little more. Thank you.

Nothing is worse than going to a contractor website’s photo gallery and not knowing what you are looking at! […]
