    Website for photographer. Need advice please.

    I have to build a site for a photographer. She would do photo shoots for say ....families, and have a "password protected page" where each family can review their photos, purchase the ones that they want, and then the photo "masters" will be mailed to them.

    There will also be a general page (or section) where the general public can view photos (landscapes, etc), that are for sale to the general public, where they can also view the photos, purchase the ones that they want, and the photo will be mailed to them.

    I am wondering if anyone could recommend the best approach to this?
    Not sure if anyone knows if this sounds like I should should lean towards "shopping cart" software, or Wordpress,etc.

    I am leaning towards Opencart, but would like some advice. Thank you very much.

    If she wants to do the fulfillment herself, take a look at Photocart. If she wants someone else to do fulfillment, I'd look at the likes of Smugmug, etc. I wouldn't build this out of generic shopping cart software, there's much better solutions specific for photography.

    Thanks Dave,

    I will check out Photocart. I also am looking into something called Photocrati
    which I see is a Wordpress theme, and has an e-commerce feature. I do appreciate your input.

    Another one to checkout is Photography Orders. http://www.photographyorders.com

    Similar but simpler than Photo Cart

    Thank you.
    So far, I have checked many of them out and, at the moment am sold on Photocrati, but will definitely check out Photographyorders first.

    I appreciate you taking the time to reply. Yeah, once you decide, you have to run with it, so I want to make sure I cover all the bases! Thanks again.

    Ok,
    I am am now leaning towards "Photgraphy Orders" (as it seems to have the built in password protect feature rather than having the client to go through the WP dashboard for each gallery), and am wondering if anyone has actually used "Photgraphy Orders" yet? Thanks.
