Welcome to your new website. Handcrafted for photographers just like you.

When you’re getting ready to launch your photo business, you don’t want to go the DIY route, but you’re not ready to invest in a completely custom website…and you shouldn’t.

BUT you still want that custom look and feel…

We’ve teamed up with our friends at Photo Business Launch to bring you the best of both worlds.

To make it easy for you, we’ve built the perfect ‘blueprint’ template designed especially for ambitious photographers getting ready to launch and take their business seriously but without spending a fortune. 

We’ve helped thousands of photographers launch websites they love. 
We’re your geeky website phone-a-friend and we can’t wait to meet you.

We’ve built the perfect blueprint website package… for photographers who are ready to gow.

We know that not everyone wants to build their own website or can afford to commission a custom build.

There’s a better way.

 Our mission is to help you create a stunning website that truly represents you and your brand (that’s a given). But what we’re really passionate about is giving you the confidence to manage, edit and grow your own website yourself.

That’s where we come in. Using our Blueprint template, we’ll build your website but we’ll also show you how to use it and then be there to offer you unlimited, patient support and as much training as you need. 

Plus, you get to launch your shiny new website in a matter of days rather than months.

This is for you if…

You’re not ready to invest in a completely custom website build

You want a professional site built with speed and SEO in mind without sacrificing design or cutting corners

You need a neutral base to apply your branding elements and colors to

You want a team of experts to support you and help you to get the best out of your website as your business grows

You don’t have to do this alone.


BluePrint is powered by the award-winning Kadence theme.


Most importantly the Kadence theme is highly regarded for its lightweight structure and speed, ensuring your theme will load fast and impress Google.

Even better, we’ve designed BluePrint to work with the FREE Kadence theme and blocks plugin, meaning that there are no extra costs. All you need is good WordPress hosting which we can advise you on.

We’ve built hundreds and hundreds of websites for small creative businesses just like yours, and we believe that Kadence is the best solution available.

We’re serious about support and community. Tom is our Support Manager, famed for his kindness and video answers! Plus we have an active and welcoming community where you can ask as many questions as you need. 







You’ll need self-hosted WordPress (we can guide you on this). Our BluePrint template uses the free plugin Kadence Blocks to give you an easy-to-use drag and drop editor. And that’s it!

No, not at all. The only additional costs you’ll have is buying your domain name and some WordPress hosting. (We can guide you on this).

Yes we do. We’re happy to discuss your current and future needs and add-on any extras.

Yes, we do. Prices start at £500 and include logo suite, colour palette, font suite and complementary design elements.

Yes! Absolutely. Custom websites begin at £5,500 and we love to have a proper chat with you first so that we can put together a custom quote.

If you’re broadly happy with your current website, then this probably isn’t for you. If you just want to tweak it and you’re already using WordPress, then you might prefer to use our StyleCloud product to add some extra layouts and sections to your existing site.

Firstly, our BluePrint template is full of copy prompts so you mind find it really easy to follow along and complete your copy using those prompts. 

But if you really want help, then we have a way with words!

We want it to be affordable, so we offer a package that focuses on your three key pages – home page, about page and your ‘experience’ or sales page.

We start with’emotion-based’ research to create a juicy bank of words to play with, which come straight from the lips of your ideal client.

We then ask you to share your thoughts using one of our carefully structured copy templates and then we turn your bullet points into expressive copy, designed to squarely connect with your ideal audience.

Interested? Just book a call.

Absolutely. We mean it when we say that we offer unlimited, patient support. 

We have a support ticket system where you can get in touch. 

You can also book us in for further training and development when you need it. 



I’m Melissa & I’m passionate about helping small business owners access affordable website design.

As soon as I started building websites, I realised that most people don’t need the equivalent of a Rolls Royce. They simply need better, affordable design as a foundation for their website.

That’s why I created The Design Space. It’s the Ikea of website templates and now with an affordable completely done-for-you option, which successful but budget-conscious business owners really need. 

No more asking a web designer for every little change. No more being scared to push the update button.

I’m your website phone-a-friend and I’ve got you.
