    My apologies if there's already a thread...

    My organization is looking for a professional photo sharing website and I'm hoping you can help with recommendations.

    Here's the criteria:

    * We professionally photograph live music, dance and theater performances. We need to share the original high-res files with artists and their management through an easy to use password protected site/gallery.
    * We need to allow the artists to download - for free - the original files. A lot of sites charge the end user a fee.
    * Free vs Paid sites doesn't matter.
    * Ability to brand the site would be a plus.

    Thanks for your help.

    Zenfolio is worth a look. I use it and I believe it supports all of those features.

    In addition, they have a stellar iPad app.

    Another vote for smugmug, from a 5+ year user. Here's a discount code you can use:

    EDIT: I apologize for posting a referral code - sorry for not reading the posting rules.

    I've been with smugmug since 2005. Best photo site hands down.

    Same here, I've used them since 2004 and they've been great
