With digital media being the industry norm these days, many photographers choose to offer video services in addition to photography. Working with both videos and photos, photographers can offer a complete service to their clients. Videos are a great way to enhance your website and showcase your portfolio work in place of a traditional slideshow.

Luckily, it is easy to upload and present videos within your Zenfolio account, just like you can with photo files. Check out the video tutorial below on how to upload videos to display within your site pages. 

When delivering video files to your clients there is no need to ship a DVD or use a USB device. Your clients can conveniently download videos directly from a Zenfolio gallery. Take a look at the tutorial below to see how easy it is to set this up. 

Want to take video delivery a step further? Why not sell videos files directly from your Zenfolio account? Similar to selling a digital image file, the Zenfolio system allows you to set this up easily with a seamless workflow. Watch the tutorial below for step-by-step instructions. 

Similar to a well-designed slideshow, videos can add a dynamic and unique touch to your Home page.  Using a video as the centerpiece for the Home page in place of a slideshow can set you apart from the competition and show your work off in a creative way.

With so many ways to use video files with your Zenfolio website, we hope you will dive in and take these features for a spin. To inspire you we recommend checking out the Home page for MindWorks Photography as well as InFocus Imagery. We love the creative approach they have taken using videos. See if using video can complement your website as well.
