I notice a personal style in your work. You’re also particularly good with finding and shaping triangles and leading lines in many of your photographs.
Your gallery looks great and has simple and easy to navigation structure. However, over time as you get more and more comfortable with your camera I would strongly recommend paying for your unique photogrpahy domain name and hosting. If you ever end up selling your photographs (which I hope you do some day) it will give you a professional web presence (add free) and you’ll have complete control over your domain name and design.
We have no affiliate with the web hosting and registration company Godaddy (http://www.godaddy.com) and have used their services for years (as have friends and associates). They offer quality customer service, almost 100% up time, no advertising, tools for web design beginners and much more.
You can get started with them for about $10 / year for your domain name (i.e. http://www.yoursite.com) and for a good sized website you can pay as little as $3.99 / month (on a month to month basis if you wish) for a host for your website.
There is no rush to get that website up. Work on building your photography portfolio first. Once you have about 30 pictures which you feel are near perfect (color, composition, framing, moments etc) then consider putting up a new website and promoting your work in galleries, online, etc. I really think with enough practice and a large enough portfolio you can monetize your work as a photographer.
Keep up the great work. We’ve bookmarked your website and will be revisiting regularly to see the progress!
