Will be picking these up tomorrow.

Very nice!

The only other comment: some people might find that light blue against white a little difficult to read. A larger font size or a thin outline might increase the contrast and legibility?


I have Canon gear. SX1 IS, two 7D bodies and mostly f/2.8 lenses 10mm-200mm, doubler, and 17/4 TSE, some 580EX IIs. Additional portable lighting gear, and tripod with 360 pano mount. Want two 7D II bodies.

I'll play. First business card for site. Feedback appreciated!

I checked out your website. One thing that jumped out at me was your cat photo. You have it in your pets gallery under cats and it's the only cat photo. I don't think you should have a gallery or sub-gallery that has only one photo. It makes you look non-complete and a beginner. You also have this cat photo under "fauna" under "nature". It's a house cat, not nature or wild life. If you take it out of the "fauna" sub-gallery you again end up with one photo the swan. Same comment as before.

Also reconsider your gallery names. Many people associate "nature" with wildlife. So having landscape or scenics under "nature" may not get people to view them. It's all about getting people to view a gallery and you can't make names even slightly deceiving.

Good luck.

Purchase a domain name for $9 a year and use Google Apps GMail for domains (free).
Or, at least use a simple yourname@gmail.com (external link) -- the "@hot.rr.com" just wouldn't
appeal to me as a customer.

Thanks for the feedback Robert. I agree about the gallery titles. Need to get some additional images uploaded and rethink the structure.

I've used them three times, and did not like the card quality. Do yourself a favor and get some quality cards at moo.com or UVCards. You won't regret it.

I'm gonna do you a favor.

Remove the word 'photographer'. You already have 'FIRST DOWN PHOTOS' on there.
Remove your address. Nobody cares where you live.
Get a new email. If not something by your own domain name, then at least a gmail, patcarrigan@gmail.com (external link)

Thought I'd throw mine up - it isn't for photography, but I like it as its different.
