Making a portfolio website
I suppose this would be the appropriate sub-forum, but forgive me if there is a better location.
I was wondering if any of you out there have suggestions for making a portfolio website that caters to both still photographs and video (HDSLR and timelapses). I've made portfolios before for web design and photography, but they almost always ultimately fail because they are too cumbersome to update. I've seen lots of portfolios that look very nice on the front-end, but in the back-end they are messy. This time around, I'm looking to make a very very simple portfolio that just shows the basics. What I had in mind was maybe like a simplified version of Vimeo: on the right/left you have a thumbnail of videos/photos in my portfolio, and to the side of that you have the current photo/video that you are looking at.
I'm wondering, do I go the route of using a CMS like WordPress... or are there third-party portfolio sites out there that are clean and simple that you could suggest?
I've neglected my current website for some time, and have just relied on third-party social network sites, using mine as a portal. Here's what it looks like now: http://www.philipmac.com
Thanks for your time.
Edit: Having looked through some of the staff members' websites, two that seem to capture fairly well what I'm trying to accomplish are http://www.ffwdtime.com
