Loaded OK for me in FF but then it crashed the flash plugin when trying to navigate the website.

Given how many others have had problems it doesn't sound like its very robust flash scripting.

I agree. Something is us with the scripting. It was taking so long to load in Google Chrome I just closed it.

Maybe its on my end.. I just tried to open a few other things and they are doggging..

I didn't think it was going to load for me either but after 10-15 seconds it finally did. I'm using Firefox.

There's a disconnect in your "pull down menus". You have to move the mouse way down to actually click on the menu items. Also you list prices under "investment" but don't give any info on what they include. If I were surfing for a photograph, I would keep moving because I'd find a website that gives me the info I need to compare without having to call or email for details.

I would not list that you are in college studying something "other" than photography. That is talking yourself "down" instead of talking yourself up as a photographer.

Under investment I noticed it says "A non-refundable fee of $100 (paid upon the time of shooting) secures a date". I'm quite sure that's not what you meant to say.

Nice work! I love the simplicity of the whole thing, and the navigation is very easy to use. I didn't have any trouble loading the site. From a design standpoint, the crooked "V" in your logo isn't working for me. I can see that you're trying to integrate the letters, but it looks forced and doesn't really fit with the clean design of the rest of your site. Also don't forget about the favicon (the little image next to the URL in the address bar).

What are you trying to do with your "People" photos though? What audience are you trying to reach with them? All of your pictures are people, so this category doesn't make much sense. Take out the weaker pictures in your portfolio. You have a lot of great work, so you don't need the repetition. I can't tell if you've used the same model more than once, but there is definitely a shirt that is in there a couple times. I counted 36 images in your people category alone. That's a ton. Trim it down to half that if you can, keeping only the strongest images.

I agree that the "investment" page is confusing. All of your packages have the word "print" in them, but you don't explain what that means. Are there prints included in the packages?

Overall very nice work, and a great start! You have a lot to work with, don't be afraid to trim the fat.

fast enough for me , with good touches . All the same it's a tad bit plain, it could use just a touch of some color to grab you a little more .
