Portfolio / sharing websites, UK

Hi all

I've been thinking about reviewing to which website I upload my amateur photo, that people would recommend? I currently have a 500px account I haven't used lately, that's it.

I was wondering, are there any UK based photo sharing / web portfolio sites out there, ideally free (since I'm an amateur).

It's proving a bit tedious to work out where the various sites are based!

Obviously the primary point is to display the best of one's work (whether for critique or ego!), and I quite like 500px for that, but haven't really tried the competition.

My reason for asking for UK based, are several: (1) I'm not adverse in principle to letting such sites offer my photos for sale, unsure of the likelihood in reality anyone buys them, but if they handle it where's the harm. Reading the 500px licence info, international tax rules get complex, and as a US site they ask for things like location waivers, which aren't necessarily needed in the UK. (2) generally it probably makes sense to have things in the same country where I actually live, not least if Brexit happens. Am familiar with uk law, not US.

Thoughts / suggestions welcome.
