It’s almost unfathomable to think about life before websites for creative professionals. The prevalence and expansiveness of the internet has truly set creatives free from expensive and limiting physical portfolios. Affordable domains and user-friendly website builders have made it easier than ever for artists to share their work with the world in a well-organized and stunning way, and this week’s #WebsiteWednesday, EmmaLewis.xyz, is the perfect example of that.
EmmaLewis.xyz is the online portfolio for United Kingdom-based professional photographer, Emma Lewis. As both an editorial and commercial photographer, Lewis travels across London and Somerset to shoot images for magazines and businesses.
On EmmaLewis.xyz, Emma’s photography is compiled by the three main photo types she specializes in: interiors, lifestyle, and portraits. Visiting the Interiors Page is like being a kid in a candy store for any interior design buff, with expertly styled home images that have been featured in popular interior design magazines House & Garden, Elle Decoration Country and Modern Rustic. Peruse the Lifestyle Page for a behind-the-scenes look at stunningly beautiful English craftsmanship, including a metalsmith, a ceramicist’s studio, and next-level floral arrangements. The Portraits Page is a testament to Lewis’ talent for capturing the true, unassuming nature of real people in their most content state.
Lewis’ ability to communicate clearly is not only evident in the photos that are displayed on her website–but with the .xyz domain name she chose to build it with. Emma Lewis being such a common name meant that when Emma looked for a domain to build her site on, she found EmmaLewis.com and even EmmaLewisPhotography.com were already registered. So she chose EmmaLewis.xyz, and was able to get exactly what she wanted; a short, clear, and memorable domain to showcase her work on.
