PhotoBiz is excited to announce our newest exciting template, Montreal. Montreal is the first of its’ kind with an extremely unique design and animation. One of the first things that you will notice in the screen shot below is the string that runs along the top of the template. As your images transition, they will slide along this string and move to the left.

In this article I will show you how to drastically increase the amount of readable text content on your PhotoBiz website – regardless of Flash or HTML template. Not only will this be a fun (and easy!) exercise, but you will exponentially increase the amount of text available for crawling by the search engine spiders.
For a long time the consensus on the internet has been that Flash websites are nearly invisible to search engines – and owning a Flash website is essentially guaranteed doom in the SEO realm.
While that may have been sort of true a few years ago, a LOT has changed and this just simply is NOT true anymore…not at all.
Keep in mind, these instructions are specifically meant for the folks out there who have PhotoBiz websites. Whether you have a Flash website or HTML, this article applies to both!

February Featured Photographer of the Month
Larry Perez has gravitated towards the art & music side of things his entire life. To find him in this realm professionally is not a surprise. He is a man driven by freedom and surrounded only with the things he loves most. It hasn’t always been this way for him. For many years these things remained on the sidelines while raising a family & focusing on a highly demanding career that took center stage for almost 2 decades. In 2004, shortly after being awarded sole custody of his 3 children, he called it quits on his career to focus on his personal quest for freedom. “It was just time to make myself happy. I walked away from my career with the wealth of knowledge to do it, so that’s exactly what I’ve been focusing on. It hasn’t been easy, but it’s been 1000 times more rewarding”, Perez said.
Today, he enjoys raising his family, traveling to shoot weddings, as well as being privileged enough to work side-by-side with some of today’s most popular rock musicians. “I’m a musician as well, so I can relate with them so easily. Ever since I can remember I wanted to be playing in front of sold out shows. It’s definitely not the lifestyle I want now, so my contribution to that goal comes in the way of being the rockstar photographer. This combines the two life-long passions I’ve had since childhood.”
Larry also loves to help other aspiring photographer’s make their mark in the professional world. “I think that if each of us just helped other people get what they want in life, we could easily have all the things we ever wanted out of our own lives.”
