PurplePort.com is a FREE portfolio hosting & networking site for models, photographers, makeup artists, retouchers and other associated industries.
Started by Cheltenham based photographers & web developers Russ Freeman and Scott Watson in early 2011, the site has leaped forward in terms of growth reaching levels of activity neither of us could have dreamed for at this early stage in the sites life. In just 6 months we have over 2,400 active users on the site
Our aim is a simple one; To create an essential place for models, photographers, stylists and everyone involved in the creation of great images to get together, network, socialise and hopefully work together.
We’re not shy about our goals. We’re aiming to be number one. We’re aiming to be the best so in everything we do perfection is where we’ll stop.
Many have criticized the need for “another” portfolio hosting website, but our frustration was that all our competitors websites are based around forums of one sort or another and have hacked designs based on old technology. This is 2012 and a world with Facebook, Twitter, Google and Tumblr - It’s about time we had a portfolio hosting website that is built on modern web standards embraced the world of the socialweb.
To see how we compare to the “big 3” existing websites, take a look at our Feature Comparison page.
