What do photographers have to say about their WideRange photo gallery websites?
"Now that I have moved my website to WideRange Galleries, I finally feel I can return to creating. How I wish I could have spoken to my younger and more naïve self years ago. I would have said, 'Ann, just start with WideRange Galleries. Otherwise, you’ll waste time, money, but most importantly, you’ll lose creative momentum.'
Life is short. I learned valuable lessons about the other platforms I tried. However, those platforms were like blind dating: none provided any pleasant memories. I was pretty tired by the time I arrived at Wide Range. I thought, 'Here I go again.'
I even thought I might be giving up some functionality. But I was pleasantly delighted and found everything about Jack, his support, and his platform to check off the 'must-haves' on my list. For each question I had, Jack found a solution that worked well for me. And the answers were easy to implement. That is huge. I don’t want to be a website geek. I want to be an abstract photographer and writer. Now, I get excited to push out new photos or posts. It wasn’t too long ago I feared touching WordPress. Every time I added something, it seemed like I had a significant issue with some hidden code.
Today, I enjoy looking at my website. I don’t know why, but my photos look better now; I perceive a difference from how they were displayed on WordPress, Art Storefronts, or GoDaddy. Most importantly, I have every intention of that being my last website move. Thanks, Jack!"
- Ann Newman, Phoenix, Arizona
"Throughout my life as a wilderness photographer, I have struggled to create a meaningful, navigable website, and for many years I settled on a patchwork-like rudimentary third-party design that was rough at best. Over those years, I developed strong friendships with several well-known professional wilderness photographers, and each suggested that I contact Jack for help with website makeover. An exact quote from one of the most reputable worldwide professionals was, 'Jack is the best for websites.'
After doing a bit more research and reaching out to Jack, I quickly learned that the advice from my associates was spot-on; WideRange is indeed the finest resource available for creating the ideal photography website. Their work is instrumental in building an internet-based business for photography, and the return on investment is robust. Jack and his graphic designer are extraordinarily talented, responsive, available, pleasant, intuitive, and professional. Their technical and creative experience far exceeded my expectations, as did the final product. The final result is clean, professional, seamless, and beautiful. I could never imagine that anyone working with them would ever be disappointed with the experience.
Since the new website has gone live, I have received many compliments and sales. The administrative management of the website for me is straightforward, intuitive, and user-friendly. Jack has shown great foresight into the needs of professional photographers, and his advice on all topics related to web-based issues, commerce, search engine optimization, and customer service proved very valuable.
In summary, my experience with WideRange far exceeded my expectations, and I can comfortably provide the highest recommendation possible. My only regret is that I did not connect with Jack years earlier. Give them a try; you will not be disappointed!"
- Kent Williamson, Asheville, North Carolina
"After years of having another website I wasn’t happy with I finally made the decision to get a professionally custom made website with WideRange Galleries. I am extremely happy with my website now and working with Jack and Raza was a pleasure."
- Brett Ryan, Cedar City, Utah
"The attention to detail during the design phase of my website was amazing. Jack listened to my needs, offered both professional and creative advice, was super prompt to respond to my questions, and most importantly, Jack and his team cared. My website is exactly what I wanted, and even better than I envisioned! Many heartfelt thanks to Jack Brauer and WideRange Galleries for building my beautiful website. I highly recommend WideRange Galleries to anyone in the market for a professional website."
- Colette Cannataro, Lavallette, New Jersey
"I tried just about every web-design software in existence. All I did was waste time and money. It wasn't until I found WideRange Galleries that I was finally able to have a website I was proud of. Jack takes immense pride in his work and it shows. The platform he has created is second to none. I have zero knowledge of web design, but Jack and his team made everything so easy. If you're serious about your craft and want the very best platform to build your business, you've found it with WideRange Galleries."
- Jim Lally, Aurora, Colorado
"I'm completely blown away by Jack and his team at WideRange Galleries. The website looks fantastic. Not having any previous experience with this sort of thing, this was a better option after trying and failing to develop something independently. Jack had the patience of a saint and made everything easy to understand. His program is detailed and organized and works for everyone. Jack worked with me from the beginning until the end. Thanks to you and Heather and your dedication to a finished product. I couldn't be happier. For photographers looking for a professional site, WideRange Galleries is unsurpassed in both quality and customer service."
- Darlene Sours, Erie, Colorado
"It was a pleasure working with WideRange Galleries—no regrets! Jack and Raza responded promptly to our questions and had great suggestions. We are pleased with the results! In addition to their quick responsiveness, the back-end/admin portion of the site is user friendly with lots of customizable features. Before choosing WideRange Galleries, we looked at many options for our new website, and they had some of the best options for our company. Happy to recommend them."
- Jerry & Barb Jividen, Chillicothe, Ohio
"I've been using cookie-cutter websites to promote my photography for the past several years and was never very satisfied with their appearance or ease of use. What a difference WideRange Galleries has made! Jack and Raza are terrific to work with; very knowledgeable, responsive, thorough, patient, and friendly. The admin panel is one of the highlights of the entire process as there is little you can't do to modify and maintain your site both before and after its publication. Needless to say I highly recommend WideRange if you are looking to improve the look and functionality of your website. Thanks guys!"
- Mark Windom, Bothell, Washington
"I love the new site! I've been contemplating making the switch to WideRange Galleries for years. Jack's software is far superior than any of the other platforms out there. The content management panel is easy to use and makes it simple to update new products and add new content. Jack and Raza were both a pleasure to work with. Any questions I had were answered promptly. If you're thinking about making the switch to WideRange you won't be disappointed. Like many, I only regret not switching sooner. Thanks a bunch Jack and Raza!"
- Collin Taylor, Lahaina, Hawaii
"I came across the Widerange Galleries site by chance and, seeing that it is a platform dedicated to photographers, I decided to reach out and ask a few questions. I'm so glad I did! It only took one phone conversation with Jack for me to realize this was the correct path for me. Jack was responsive and patient with my "ignorance of all things web design/coding" and remained so throughout. What a huge difference from other platforms I struggled with through the years. I'm very happy with the final product. My new website is nice looking, responsive, and very intuitive. I can make changes on the site with ease and confidence, which will make moving forward with this photography journey much more comfortable. Thank you Jack and Raza. Huge props for great service and a great product!"
- Ken Green, Henderson, Nevada
"The journey with WideRange Galleries has been incredibly successful and Jack has been outstanding in every respect, from our initial communications, through development to final launch and continued support. The robust capabilities of his platform are the result of clear, integrated thinking, to provide an intuitive system that is very easy to use at all stages, from set-up to routine site and portfolio management tasks. I struggled with other approaches and feel very fortunate to have taken this much better path that will serve well for the future development of my photography business."
- Randy Jordan, Eugene, Oregon
"I am so happy I found WideRange Galleries. I formerly worked for a large hosting company and although I do not design websites, I understand the subtle intricacies that a successful website requires. WideRange offers an inviting design and layout needed to get views. More important, the WideRange backend structure offers the easy, secure and efficient methods that I was seeking. My Google Analytics is tracking a much higher engagement time average on my site. Dollar for dollar, this is the best value for your website investment. Thank you very much Jack."
- Jason Salecki, Scottsdale, Arizona
"Jack's professional, responsive and flexible approach gave me confidence from the start that WideRange was the right choice for my website relaunch. I'm beyond satisfied with the work Jack and his team have done, and working with them has been seamless, easy and quick. I appreciate that the WideRange system is built specifically for photographers, giving us maximum control over the presentation of our work, while being straightforward and intuitive to use. I enthusiastically recommend WideRange, and look forward to growing my own business with them."
- Rain Hayes, Oakland, California
"I decided to make the change to WideRange Galleries after many years of cycling through other platforms that never quite made the cut. I’m so glad I did! It felt like a big relief to finally have a website that is intuitive to work with, highly functional and looks great too. Jack and Raza were both a pleasure to work with and they made the whole process easier than I could have imagined. Thank you!
- Anna Morgan, Port Moody, British Columbia
"I wanted to let you know how incredible I think the platform you've built is. The finished website is beautiful and the platform made easy work out of designing a website that provides an outstanding client experience for Joe Garza Photography. It was honestly a lot of fun to work with and watch it all come together, not to mention very user-friendly. This was a dream compared to some of the other platforms I've worked with as a Digital Marketing Consultant. We are THRILLED with how the site looks and how easy it will be to maintain and add content and images going forward. Your availability and support has also been wonderful so thank you for that as well. Thank you again, Jack for your support and building a platform that's been a joy to work with and a pleasure to deliver a stunning website to Joe and his business."
- Sarah Zepnick, Digital Marketing Consultant for Joe Garza, Madison, Wisconsin
"Thank you for building such an awesome website! I couldn't be happier with it. Like other clients of yours I wasted a lot of time and money on platforms such as Wix. But I eventually realized I would never have the ease of use and professional appearance of a WideRange website. In every way, your websites are built for photographers. The galleries are easy to build and customize. The integrated SEO capabilities are great and will pay dividends. The admin section is straightforward, making it easy to update my site. I just wish I had done this a long time ago because I'm certain I lost sales using cumbersome websites in the past. Your websites are a great investment."
- Chris Ridgway, Albuquerque, New Mexico
- Chris Eaton, Palisade, Colorado
"Working with Jack Brauer at WideRange Galleries is and continues to be a great experience. In addition to great design and an easy-to-use system, Jack has added years of personal experience in online galleries where his SEO expertise makes a substantial difference. No comparison to how much better it is than any of the mass-produced systems out there. And the selling features are great for me, allowing me to control the quality of the finished product. I’d highly recommend WideRange to every photographer who wants an impeccable gallery experience."
- Tim Keane, Hartland, Wisconsin
"Awesome!!!!!!!! Thank you so much Jack! You guys do amazing work and I really appreciate you building this for me! I love it! Exponentially better than my old site!
- Kelly Hopson, Portland, Oregon
"I have a decades-long history in IT and am quite familiar with the ins and outs of website development. However, when I needed a solution for my photography business, I decided to leverage the expertise of others so I could spend more time pursuing my photographic passions. I set up complete sites on SmugMug, Wix, and Squarespace, but none were the right fit. Continuing my search, I noticed a handful of sites that looked fantastic and had very fast response times. They all looked great on PC, tablet, and phone – and all were done by WideRange Galleries. When I reached out to Jack, I found someone who was more than just a great fellow photographer who wrote great software. He answered all my nitty-gritty IT questions about disaster recovery, SEO optimization and code maintenance. His design partner Raza was a pleasure to work with. From initial contact to go-live and beyond, they have delivered above and beyond my expectations. I now have the professional quality site I was looking for all along!"
- Mark Devine, La Crosse, Wisconsin
"A huge thank you to WideRange Galleries for their incredible work and tireless patience while building my site! When I decided a rebrand/relaunch of my online presence was overdue, I first wasted countless hours of my time and effort with another do-it-yourself platform. It eventually became obvious I'd never be satisfied with a cookie-cutter website, and I ended up here at WideRange Galleries. I'm super happy with the final product - my site is modern, responsive, and ridiculously easy to use and update. I couldn't possibly be happier, and only wish I had saved time and frustration by engaging Jack to build my site to begin with."
- Michael DeWitt, Ashland, Wisconsin
"After nearly 3 full years of procrastinating, I finally pulled the trigger and migrated my website over to WideRange Galleries. I've used quite a few online e-commerce platforms dating back to 2003, and can attest none of them have come close to what Jack has expertly designed for photographers. No doubt about it, this is a top-tier professional presentation that is responsive, user-friendly and provides awesome SEO tools needed for excellent search engine rankings. My only regret is not switching to WideRange Galleries sooner. Thank you for all you've done."
- Thomas Schoeller, New Milford, Connecticut
"For years, I've used a variety of web hosts, ranging from template-based website companies to the profile pages of online marketplaces. I finally had enough of those solutions and their shortcomings, and have decided to have a professional design my site. WideRange Galleries was exactly what I was looking for in a web designer and host. The design is clean and functional, easy for me to maintain, and more importantly, simple for visitors to navigate."
- Rick Berk, Freeport, Maine
"Jack nailed it! I had a three-year search looking for just the right website builder. I knew what I wanted, and no-one could deliver it. Owning two photography galleries, teaching out in the field Lessons and Adventures, a video series to promote and some addition products to sell, I needed just the right site that would match the strength of my business. In my search I came across Jack Brauer and WideRange Galleries... The product he has created for his customers is simply amazing. Batch processing, excellent search engine response, and the right customizing features that do the job. And when I was stuck, Jack was there to help, and he did not just fix it for me, he instructed me on how to fix it myself. I am very proud of the website I have built with Jack, he is in my opinion, the best in the business. I would highly recommend him, and I only recommend and work with companies I believe and use myself."
- Randall J. Hodges, Mukilteo, Washington
"I absolutely LOVE the site, and I really do mean that. I have bounced around from Squarespace to Zenfolio but things just never felt right… When I first came across WideRange, I thought that would be neat but I never took the initiative to make the move. Looking back, I should have made the change sooner. Your platform is leaps and bounds above the others I’ve worked with. I was also surprised by the user friendliness of the admin portal; to my knowledge there is no other platform out there that caters to photographers like WideRange does. I have a huge smile on my face looking at the finished product."
- Jason Weiss, Fort Collins, Colorado
"I am very happy with the new website that Jack and Raza created. Knowing about WideRange Galleries for over a decade it's hard to understand why I waited so long yet I am glad I finally made the switch. Jack was easy to work with from beginning to end. There was never a hold up on Jack's side, the only thing that slowed the project down was me. He also provides detailed self-help tutorials and videos to facilitate adding content on the site, yet will always answer your questions when you have them. One of the few things keeping me on my last solution was the fairly easy to use admin portal. The WideRange solution really shines here and is even an improvement from what I had before which makes updating the site easy and smooth. I have already received a number of compliments on the new site in the first month it's been live."
- Adrian Klein, Portland, Oregon
"Jack and his design team were a breeze to work with. If you are not inclined when it comes to websites, building and hosting, don't fear as Jack has made this process as easy as can be. The communication is terrific and the final product is rock solid and looks great. I spent significant time researching and wavering and ultimately choose Jack's platform because of the focus and understanding of how to handle and display photography work. The great customer service just reinforced my decision. That type of service makes price irrelevant as the value is immeasurable. If you are looking for best in class for a photography site - just do it."
- Greg Ghia, Cary, North Carolina
"I've wanted Jack to design and build a new website for me for a long time. I was reluctant because the primary purpose of my site is to sell products other than fine art prints, like calendars and books, whereas the primary focus of most of the sites he develops is for print sales. My apprehension was misplaced, as he was able to show me how the functionality of his sites tracks perfectly with my needs, AND it gave me the impetus to integrate print sales into my product line. The feature-rich admin panel, while intimidating at first to a non-techie like me, is actually easy to use, and nothing short of brilliant. As I've continued to add content to the new site, I keep catching myself thinking, "Who thinks of this stuff, it's perfect!" And now I have an absolutely beautiful, fully functional, modern website that I'm quite proud of. My only regret is not having done this years ago."
- Todd Caudle, Golden, Colorado
"Thank you so much for everything Jack! It turned out beautifully and I'm so happy! I appreciate you and Raza! You've been so patient and helpful through this whole process.
- Stefanie Goo, Rio Rancho, New Mexico
"Absolutely amazing! Now that I finally have a site designed by Jack I can’t fathom why it took me so long to switch over.
"I have had an online presence for over 15 years and have used a variety of website platforms including Squarespace and Wordpress, but none of them can touch the beauty and SEO capabilities of a WideRange website! The control panel of the site is logical and streamlined making it a simple task to add new images, products or write journals allowing me to continue building my website. Jack was amazing to work with guiding me through a variety of obstacles and providing custom designs based on my feedback.
"If you're a photographer or artist looking for a beautiful website that's easy to use and has top notch SEO then look no further. Although the upfront cost might seem high I can promise you that it is absolutely worth the investment. Cheers Jack and thanks again my friend. I love the new website!"
- Joseph Rossbach, Vienna, Virginia
"I have gone through several different web development products, but all of them had issues with performance or reliability. I went to WideRange Galleries hoping to finally have a solution that was fast, reliable, and looked good. Jack has delivered exactly what I was looking for, and he has been responsive the entire time. The site is wonderful. And the SEO guidance that was provided was very valuable. The interface has been simple and easy to understand. I would recommend WideRange Galleries to any photographer and regret to not have switched earlier. It was a pleasure to work with Jack and Raza. They patiently answered all my questions."
- Claudia Lungauer, Brooklyn, New York
"I highly recommend Jack Brauer and WideRange Galleries.
"Although it is possible to build a good looking website on your own, that was not my most difficult challenge. The problem I needed to solve was; How do I continue to expand, refine, and improve my website over the years? I tried to do that on my own for many years. It was no fun at all and resulted in a static, dated, and boring website.
"Jack’s services provide a robust, flexible, and easy to learn Administration Control Panel which will allow me to continue expanding and improving my website over the long term. Even though the initial design cost may seem high, I’m quite sure that my total monetary expenditure, averaged over a few years with WideRange Galleries, will be less expensive than my old way of running my website."
- David Dix, Aurora, Illinois
"I used three different website design interfaces including Wordpress before switching over WideRange Galleries. WideRange Galleries makes sense for any photographer who is interested in selling prints or workshops. Since the interface was designed by a photographer, it offers just about any feature that a photographer could possibly want. For me, the SEO capabilities and streamlined store front for print sales makes the investment in WideRange Galleries more than worth it. The thing I enjoy most after switching from Wordpress is that I no longer have to wrestle with plugins that inevitably end up causing problems. WideRange Galleries just works, no plugins required. The interface comes with a help guide that is quite useful and if you can't find an answer to your problem in the guide, Jack is very responsive in answering his emails. I generally received a response the same day or the following.
"If you're serious about photography and want a website that is just as serious as you are, then I highly recommend using WideRange Galleries. While it might be more expensive than other services up front, the results are definitely worth the investment."
– Mike Wardynski, Santa Fe, New Mexico
"The site looks amazing… Thank you for your patience and for all your help and guidance. It was truly a pleasure and I look forward to our continued working relationship."
- Edith Levy, Thornhill, Canada
“After years of frustrations working with other web design platforms, I decided to switch to WideRange Galleries, and I couldn’t be happier with my decision. For years, updating my website on other platforms was a hassle and limiting, and because of that, I never updated my galleries. With WideRange Galleries, the backend is extremely user friendly, and updating galleries is a complete breeze. I will now actually look forward to updating photos on my website. I’m not a technical person, but his interface is straightforward and refreshing to use. Everything is streamlined, and Jack is very responsive and patient. I now feel like a professional photographer with a professional and beautiful website designed how I’ve always wanted. The galleries and photos look stunning, whether I’m viewing them on a desktop or my phone. If you’re considering changing platforms, I highly recommend WideRange Galleries and Jack. My only regret is that I didn’t do this a few years ago, and I waited so long! Thank you, Jack!”
– Jennifer Renwick, Golden, Colorado
“Jack [of WideRange Galleries] has created a beautiful design, that is not only responsive, but very easy to manage! A complete game changer for us! The backend is incredibly easy to use. Easier and more intuitive then WordPress. It has made making changes and updates to my website fun! Jack is incredibly responsive and patient, a joy to work with. He really has thought of everything, including search engine optimization – no need to hire anyone, or take the time to learn SEO, the software takes care of it for you. If I had one regret, I wish I would have hired Jack 10 years ago! ”
– Ron Niebrugge, Seward, Alaska
“If you are a photographer and you have been looking for a new website, consider investing in yourself and your work by looking into WideRange Galleries.

You simply can’t go wrong working with Jack and Raza.”
– Aaron Reed, Sammamish, Washington
“Thanks for all your expert work, guys. It looks superb, and you’re both very easy to work with. You were very flexible and accommodating of my ideas and needs, and I appreciate all your talents and effort. Your admin control panel makes things very easy.”
– Michael E. Gordon, Long Beach, California
“Jack and Raza took the time to not only create a beautiful design, but were extremely helpful and thorough in assisting the navigation of the admin so I can add, subtract, update, or change content at will and without delays. To have a professional online presence, one must be willing to invest in oneself and WideRange Galleries is well worth the investment and with my new website designed and created by Jack and Raza, I can’t help but to feel just a bit more professional.”
– Stone Siegel, Arusha, Tanzania
“If you are a photographer or artist looking to build a new custom website, I would highly recommend WideRange Galleries. Jack and Raza do outstanding work and have built some of the best looking and most user friendly photography sites on the web. The main features that set the WideRange Gallery sites apart are: the streamlined buying experience for customers, built in search engine optimization and ease of customization. I had been using my previous website for more than 10 years, but I was always frustrated by the lack of customization and poor usability. I’m very pleased with how my new website turned out and I’m excited to finally have a site that meets every one of my needs. The process of building the site was very straightforward and Jack and Raza were available to help during every step of the process. After working with them, it’s obvious they want to help their clients build the best websites possible. I truly appreciate them helping me bring my ideas to life on my new website!”
– Scott Smorra, Portland, Oregon
“I just finished creating my website with Jack and I am extremely happy with the result. From initial communication through completion, Jack was communicative, helpful, and responsive to my questions and needs. All of the frustrations of working with plug-and-play websites like Smugmug and Squarespace were resolved by moving to WideRange Galleries. I now have a website that has the exact functionality I’m looking for and I thank and applaud Jack for making it happen. On top of that, the website is very snappy and responsive and the admin panel is sensible, powerful, and easy to use. Jack is receptive of improvements and changes and his product is only going to improve. I chose the self-design package and while I am not a graphic designer or website builder, Jack helped me rectify issues with my initial design and I now have a website that I am actually excited for people to visit. If you’re not getting what you want out of other website services, you really need to consider a WideRange Galleries website. It’s certainly worth the investment. Thanks Jack!”
– TJ Thorne, Portland, Oregon
“Although there are many choices of commercial photography website builders available, none of them included all the features that provide the flexibility, eCommerce capabilities, and personalized look of a WideRange Galleries designed site. The functionality of the administrative interface provides a myriad of tools I never dreamed would be so useful. Along with those tools, Jack provides short tutorials to provide useful tips and tricks. Being created by an accomplished photographer, Jack knows what elements of a website are critical in attracting viewers. His design for my site was simple, yet elegant. I appreciated the patience and perseverance Jack had in answering all my questions and walking me through the process of creating a truly great website. Now I only wish I had hired him years go!”
– Ken Henke, Fort Collins, Colorado
“I want to say again that I absolutely love the software you put together. I have been promoting it to lots of photographers. It is so simple and efficient. It couldn’t be much better. I think people feel more comfortable placing orders now with the new system. Thanks again for all your hard work on this.”
– Erik Stensland, Estes Park, Colorado

Jack and Raza are both a pleasure to work with, and always quickly answer all my questions. If you are looking for a high quality and robust website, I highly recommend WideRange! ”
– Max Foster, Plymouth, Minnesota
“I have tried every website builder out there for my photography: wix, squarespace, smugmug, zenfolio, etc. While many of them can have nice gallery displays and be aesthetically pleasing, its obvious that selling prints on these platforms is an afterthought. That is where Jack and WideRange Galleries comes in! Jack has designed an easy-to-use site builder with the primary focus of selling products while still maintaining a beautiful and highly customizable gallery and website. If you’re serious about selling products and are tired of the limited applications of other photography website builders, look no further than WideRange Galleries. Jack is a pleasure to work with and very responsive. You will not be disappointed!”
– Nolan Nitschke, Bishop, California
"I'm super stoked that you're very progressive with your platform and focus so much on the SEO optimization. The marketing company I'm working with can't believe how fast rankings have been improving and it seems like it's because of your layout to me. The other folks I see on many of these pages are also using WideRange so that tells me something good is cooking.”
– Andrew Shoemaker, Kihei, Hawaii
"As a long-time Zenfolio customer for 7 years, I was always frustrated with my website for a number of reasons. I sell a fair amount of prints, and I never liked the fact that most of these services take a cut of every sale you make. Factoring in those costs, I made the easy choice to invest in a new site through Jack here on WideRange Galleries. Jack was super easy to work with and walked me through the whole process, making the design of the site painless and carefree. I also appreciate his attention to detail and the 1:1 customer service he provides. If you are looking for a clean, high functioning site for your photography - this is the best platform that exists. The SEO is world class, the UI is world-class, and the functionality of the site is feature-rich. It is also not very hard to add new content and customize the layout of that content in a way that feels right for your purposes. You really can't go wrong if you go with WideRange Galleries. I highly recommend it."
- Matt Payne, Durango, Colorado
“After years of frustration trying to maintain an online presence through social media, a WordPress blog and plug and play website, I finally committed to putting a truly professional foot forward and had a site built through WideRange Galleries. I could not be happier with the experience or the outcome. Jack and Raza are wonderful to work with – friendly, patient and attentive through the entire process; and the sites they create are truly visionary. As a fellow photographer designing websites with professional nature and landscape photographers in mind, Jack understands not just the importance of aesthetics and functionality, but also the importance for those of us who work as artists to be able to lay pieces of ourself into everything we put before the world. I am incredibly proud of my website and thrilled to join the WideRange family.”
– Josh Meier, Tipton, Iowa
“Your website is EXACTLY what I was looking for in terms of setting up. Ridiculously user friendly.”
– Robert Landry, Lake Charles, Louisiana
“I used a WordPress-based site for 5 years and felt like it was eating me alive. Every time I needed to add images became a chore, every update would worry me something might go wrong, more than once it did, I finally had enough. I had known about WideRange Galleries for some time as some of my photographer friends had moved their websites there. I contacted Jack and from the start he was amazing to work with. His suggestions were very helpful, his design amazing and the admin panel was easy to figure out and work with. I can not say enough of how easy this transition was and how much better my website looks now. It was worth every penny hiring Jack and I would suggest anyone serious about building a website for their art to see what he can do for them.”
– Tomas W. Mitchell, Midvale, Utah
“You have been so professional and easy to deal with. Seriously I can not thank you enough. The admin panel is THE BOMB! I’m really really in love with the admin panel… adding content is a freaking breeze.”
– Jared Weber, Evansville, Illinois
“I really cannot thank you enough. Definitely going above and beyond simply creating a website for me. I definitely appreciate it.”
– Troy Crowder, Rota, Spain
“From the very start of the design phase to the final implementation details, Jack was an absolute pleasure to work with. I had been looking for a website builder to sell my photography, and was not interested in using the big-name mainstream website hosts. I feel very fortunate to have found WideRange Galleries, and am incredibly happy with the result! Jack and Raza answered all of my questions along the way, and made countless updates and tweaks until I was 100% satisfied. The website is very responsive, and looks as great on my cell phone as it does on my large 4K desktop monitor. I can’t say enough about their professionalism and dedication.”
– Chris Marler, Ravensdale, Washington
“I wanted to thank you for your work on my new website… the process was smooth and stress-free. And I can’t overstate enough how patient you were in the initial stages of design, going back and forth several times with mock-ups of what the website would finally look like. I had researched for months about what website companies would fit my needs… I never seemed to find something that would deliver both a professional look and SEO friendly coding. Finally, I decided to take a chance and move from templates other website companies offer and go with a custom design – and I couldn’t be more pleased.
And even months after the website launched, you’re still willing to answer my questions in a informative and timely way, and that is awesome! I know I am in good hands both now and in the future.
Its been about 8 months now since we went live. Nearly all the terms I wanted to be found for are showing up on page 1 of google searches. While the site was more expensive than the cookie cutter options out there, it has generated more business that I expected. You get what you pay for, and your service was worth every penny. I think it paid for itself after the first few months.
So thanks! This has been one of the best business decisions and investments I could have made.”
– Rob Greebon, Dripping Springs, Texas
“I had been noticing the world-class look of the WideRange websites, and my goal was to make a similar looking website myself, to replace my old one. Well, that just wasn’t happening. After many weeks of struggling with WordPress, I decided to call Jack to see what he could offer. That first call convinced me my best option was to hire Jack, and I have never regretted that decision for a second! Raza did a great job with design, and then Jack took over and did whatever tweaking I asked for to have it exactly the way I wanted. The admin panel is amazing and easy to learn and use, and Jack was there to answer any questions I had. So now I have that world-class looking website I wanted, and I could not be happier! Thank you Jack and Raza!”
– Steve Shames, Rancho Cordova, California
“You and Raza make a wonderful team and build stunning classy photography websites. I’m really glad I found you!!”
– Desirai Renee, Whitefish, Montana
“I absolutely love the new site! Thank you so much for time and effort to put this together.”
– Jason Ferrell, Tyler, Texas
“After 15 years of managing my own web development, I decided to hire Jack Brauer of WideRange Galleries to rebuild my website from the ground up with cutting-edge code. My old website was starting to look like Frankenstein under the hood and I had been becoming increasingly dissatisfied with its limitations. I’m excited by the work that Jack and his designer, Raza, did on my site and I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do. Thanks Jack & Raza!”
– Richard Wong, Glendora, California
“I am thrilled with the site and appreciate your help.”
– Wade Morales, Hilo, Hawaii
“Jack I must say you really made this process easy to create a very professional website. I tried Wix and was totally frustrated with their tools and their templates. From the first email and over the course of several weeks you were always there to answer questions and provided support and guidance in helping me get my site up and running. In the future should any potential clients who would want to ask about the process, you can use my name. I would be more than happy to tell them what a great service you have.”
– David Whiteman, State College, Pennsylvania
“Thanks for your expertise and guidance. The help information you provided is self working in most cases and lots of answers there. The design is great. The functionality is first class.

– Don Hurzeler, Kailua Kona, Hawaii
“Peerless best describes WideRange Galleries websites! An incredibly talented and dedicated staff addresses every aspect of the design, development and fulfillment of your website inclusive of providing you with an extremely robust yet intuitive Admin control panel interface. I’ve been a photographer for a long time and tried several other website hosts during the past six years. Believe me, Jack Brauer and his team, (with kudos to [graphic designer] Raza Durrani), are truly peerless! Thank you, WideRange Galleries, for designing a website built for photographers.”
– K.C. Turner, Westminster, Colorado
“I finally quit beating my head against the wall trying to get other photography websites to work correctly. WideRange is the only system that allows you to have a Title, Location, Caption and custom URL, all independent of the filename of the photo. This is how you build a photography site for great SEO. It is totally responsive, looking the same on all devices, and I finally have a website that looks as good on my phone as it does on my computer. The Admin panel is great, allowing for individual or bulk changes to your photo information. Photos load faster than any of the other sites I’ve had and they look sharp and clear. Jack was great to work with, and being a photographer himself, understands what Landscape and Nature photographers need. It’s an easy decision to go with WideRange.”
– Joseph C. Filer, Miami, Florida

“After struggling with trying to build a new photography web site from templates and plugins with WordPress and being totally discouraged with the look, feel and lack of functionality, we ran across WideRange Galleries. We looked at the websites listed in the portfolio and saw that most of them ranked with the search engines and showcased the photographers’ work and looked professional. Jack Brauer, the owner and main developer of WideRange Galleries, is an accomplished photographer/programmer and has a great system in place. He answered numerous emails full of technical questions I had over the 2 months we were reviewing options. Once we finally started we worked through some design issues and finally came up with a new website that fit what we were looking for, simple but elegant. Now that we are live the new site looks and functions great. We would highly recommend WideRange Galleries!!”

– Ed Fuhr, Richmond, Virginia
“I can see the efficiency as well as the flexibility and robustness of your admin program, and I am looking forward to working with this site for many years to come.

– Johnathan Esper, Long Lake, New York

“We searched extensively for a web developer who could deliver on our envisioned requirements. We finally found Jack Brauer and the WideRange development team. After so many interviews with potential developers our search was over!! Jack and his team worked with us to develop our visions of the required specifications and evolved our site to these specs in a fluid timeframe while continually providing insights and innovations to us that we had not dreamed of.
“A major frustration in the past was not having the ability to modify content ourselves without a continual interaction with the development team once the site was up and running. Jack has developed an extensive well thought out Administration module that gives us what we needed and so much more. It is in the 10th year of development and is quite mature.
“Jack is also a superb photographer in his own right and truly understands the needs required for web sites. The ease of use in adding and modifying portfolios while optimizing each for Search engines is exceptional. Inputting and updating pricing for our products is so granular that we are able to quickly introduce new concepts and product families.
“Working with Jack and WideRange was the easiest development we have ever done. We would recommend him to anyone.

“It seems I took a long detour before I finally jumped on board with Jack at WideRange Galleries. After messing around for several years and being dissatisfied at all the other website designs, I finally took the plunge and made a real investment in myself. I believe his gallery setup is probably the best out there because you’ll have the most options to fit your creativity. It will take time to learn and build your site, but that is why your site will look gorgeous when it’s complete. Once you mastered the working layout, you won’t ever think about having another template design. Jack was great in walking me through with all my questions and displayed great patience as it took me months to get up to speed. I could not be happier with my completed site! Thank you Jack!”
