After considering several of the popular photography site providers I decided upon Zenfolio. The site was configured with the look I wanted, price lists created and photographs uploaded and organised all with 5 days left in my 14 day trial. While I do work in IT I'm pretty sure most photographers who can deal with Lightroom or Photoshop would be able to get up and running without to much assistance from Zenfolio themselves.
