To be more precise, I've refreshed the overall design, and I'm happy with the stripped down look, and the navigation works for me too - what I struggle with is the gallery categories, and also how many images to put in each gallery, so any thoughts.....?

Site is simple and clean... I like it. My two points would be:

There is too much space between the title of the page and the logo/navigation bar. It makes it so that I have to scroll on your site which I dont like; especially since theres nothing but your copywrite info down there. If you could shorten that up, it would be awesome. I will say that Im currently on an 11" MCA, but still.

The second would that there should be some sort of text or image on your contact page. Maybe a picture of yourself on the right or maybe just a quick couple sentences about why people would need to email you. It looks too bland with nothing there.

The site looks like a WP theme so you may have to go into the editor to shorten up the space...

Thanks for looking - I'm confused about 1 thing, the title/logo should be on the same line as the navigation, is it resizing vertically on your screen so you have to scroll down to see the copyright footer?
And I did have an image on the Contact page, not sure why I haven't replaced it but it does look a bit plain with nothing.

Here are a couple screenshots of what Im seeing. The first is the page loaded and I touch nothing. You can see that part of the image is cut off... and then the second image shows what I see when I scroll down.

Im on a smaller screen like I said, but it would be nice not to scroll to see the full site.

Ah, gotcha. Thanks for that. Looks like a resizing of the header div should sort it. Cheers for your time.

Kinda likeyour site. Which gallery did you use? Galleria? The only thing is, that on the contact page the contact form is on the left side. I would place it in the middle of the side, but that is only my optionion


Canon EOS 650D, Canon EOS 1000d, SIGMA DG 18-250m, Canon 18-55mm

The category 'beauty' is non descriptive. Could be anything. And I would at least have a separate Nude&Glamour category so people know what to expect when clicking that. Now they're a bit unexpected say. :)

Yep, I need to jazz up that page a bit.

That's what I was meaning - Gallery titles are always difficult for me. Should a Glamour/Nude category only feature that type of image, what about those slightly glam images that aren't NSFW? I don't consider a lot of my pictures 'Glamour' but Beauty is just the best alternative I could think of.

And I'm never quite sure how many pictures to put in each gallery, but that's another story.

How about simply splitting up the Glamour/Nude category? Nude for the nudes and Glamour for the others?

To be honest, I think it just comes down to me not being able to categorise my pictures. There are some I would like to think of as arty model shots, that other people may think are straight up glamour - I think I need to spend a bit of time on them and cut the galleries down maybe.
