Humble Beginnings, Lofty Goals

It began in the cradle of so many great ideas: a coffee shop. Four friends with a passion for photography, a shared background in technology, and complimentary skills had a goal. They wanted to create an all-in-one Web solution for photographers – both amateur and professional – to organize, display, and sell their images with uncompromising quality.

To achieve this goal they surrounded themselves with talented people from a variety of professional backgrounds who had worked for the top database, computer OS, marketing, and graphics and imaging companies. Importantly, they all shared an interest in photography, with many even being professional photographers themselves.

What is Zenfolio?

Zenfolio is the best all-in-one solution for photographers to display, share, and sell their work online.

We became the best by making it our business to display every photograph with the same precision and attention to detail that went into making them. By channeling our passion to do this, we’ve created a viewing experience that is as impressive as the beautiful photographs displayed on our site.

As digital artists, our mission from the start was to build an online photography service that we would want to use ourselves. Now, nearly a decade later and with tens of thousands of photographers using Zenfolio every day to run their sites, we're still as passionate about what we do.

Every Zenfolio account includes unique organizational tools, an easy to use e-commerce platform, and customizable websites that let you store, sell, and show your photos in the best possible light. Our goal is to let you focus on what you love most… creating great photos. We'll take care of the rest.

A Trusted, Experienced Team

Zenfolio is part of the Art.com Inc. family of brands. Together we’re making art accessible to all by transforming the way the world discovers, personalizes, shares and purchases art. Though our team at Zenfolio has many years of experience developing Web and desktop software, it’s our shared commitment to photography and delivering the premier photo website service that binds us together. That and our daily ritual of having coffee together, just like we did in the beginning.
