My name is Costa Vaggas and I own a one-man photography business. I have a website at but the problem is that it is all Flash so Google's spiders cannot see it. It is a US-based template site which I pay �120 per year for. I love the look and feel of the site but it is of no use to me if it cannot be indexed and searchable. To tackle this I began to create a similar site using Joomla (see To be honest with you, even though it is nearly done, I do not have the time to dedicate to completing it.

I stumbled across this site by accident (totally not looking for anything even remotely connected with website design) and I found an ad placed by Danette D. He was offered a website for �130 to include domain name and hosting. My curiosity was aroused when the quote pointed to as one of the sites that had been built (I notice that also uses a CMS). Whilst I do not like some aspects of the site such as the portfolio, it is good value for the price. I also like the speed of the site (as you can imagine a Flash site can be slow on older computers).

So anyway, I have jabbered enough. Would you be interested in building a site that mirrors the features and capabilities of My site has the features of the Mitra Photography site plus an MP3 player, video player, document displays, multiple galleries, search functionality, a lightbox, the ability to set different pricing structures for different galleries, option to purchase by credit/debit card, a private gallery for clients, client membership, statistics, slideshow, unlimited storage, bulk uploader, 25 Gb bandwidth per month, ability to show large images, watermarking, SEO, etc.

In addition to this, I would like the ability to create web blogs, web forms, database tables, members-only areas, create event calendars, send email newsletters, and ideally some kind of website backup and security. As you can see, I am not asking for much :-)

I think I have a great bunch of features and a nice site but as I stated previously, there is not much point having all this if people are not seeing it. Having said that, I have had 1000 visitors in the last month with 12000 hits, but as I am sure that you are aware of, visitors does not mean sales. Hence, I am trying to make myself searchable online and have a greater Internet presence.

Is this something you can help with? Please let me know ASAP. Failing that I will be going over to Soholaunch/Vodahost and using their quite attractive solutions in the New Year.

Have a great day and I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind Regards,

Costa Vaggas


PS apart from my site, I like earthly feeling sites such as the first page of Mitra. I also like sites such as Nick Fallowfield-Coopers at, the speed of Michael Raffin%u2019s site the cleanness of Laura%u2019s site and the elegance and simplicity of Suzanne%u2019s site at
