p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Sportshooters.com - Worst website design ever


So I read that sportsshooters.com was the place to be for the sports photographer community. Why does this site look like it is from the 90s? It is like the worst interface/design I have seen in a long time. Interested to learn the story on why they don't update it to current website design standards. I'm half trolling and half serious with this post.

Actually this site is about helping fellow sports shooters produce better results, and occasionally make a couple of bucks doing it. Perhaps you could find some answers in the pro digital corner??

Yes, their site looks terrible.

I wish their site and forums were updated. It comes up in their forums from time to time so you are not the only one who has noticed and commented. But, I guess the bottom line is that it works for the owners, so they don't feel sufficiently motivated to make it look nice or add functionality.

If you are in need of specific sports related photography, they usually have 2 or 3 photographers who respond with very good answers and often provide unique and helpful information. In this regard, their forum works just fine.

Like Ed alluded to, one of the more valuable benefits of the site is to generate some paying work based on your contacts and interaction on the site. And again, for this purpose, the site works.

But, if you want to post examples of your work, get feedback, etc., then I think a site like Fred's works a whole lot better.
