How would you set up this portfolio with custom post types? (1 post)

    Hey all. I'm about to create a site from scratch using wordpress with the new custom post types. I'm still pretty confused about how to organize, categorize, taxonomize, content.

    Here's the scenario. This will be a portfolio site with the following types of art with room for new art types to be added in the future:

      photography
      photo illustration
      illustration
      drawings

    Each art type should have several portfolios and image types (landscape, portrait...). Photos should be able to live in several of these similar or as categories:

      portfolio 1
      portfolio 2
      portfolio 3
      landscapes
      industrial
      portraits
      etc

    I do not want to use the blog for this purpose. Blogs are for blogging!

    I'm pretty new to these wordpress complexities.

    What would be the ideas strategy to achieve this? Create a different post type for each type of art?

    Would the strategy really only come down to url structure?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.
