Hello Mike.

I like the simplicity of it. It seems to load fast for me. A couple suggestions...

- I'd change the e-mail on your contact page from webmaster@... to something less sterile. Maybe mike@..., or something. People will be more likely contacting you about your photos, which is more of a personal contact, and not something impersonal like trying to solve a website problem.

- I'd like to see some text or something on the home page other than just a photo. Some of your "about" info could me moved here. Something to welcome the visitor.

- There's a little too much space between the bottom of your content and your copyright info on some pages.

I just get a message saying flash isn't supported on my device.
Using flash makes it impossible for all iPad and iPhone users to access your site.
Over 20% of all traffic visiting my own site are iPad or mobile users. That was enough to convince me to avoid using flash.

HTML5 also loads faster than flash, it really is that much better that being said i have nothing against flash what-so-ever, if you do stick with flash though be sure to make a mobile/ipad version only apples stubborness is stopping them from enabling flash, stupid and petty on there part really.

that being said though i do like the website in general however i do think that the portfolio part could be a little more ''slick'' still good though.

You need to use spell checker before you post something, I didn't read much but I think I remember 2 mis-spelled words in you About section.

+1

I saw three grammatical errors in the first paragraph in your "About" section. Please, take the time to make it professional and as error-free as possible.

This is a personal opinion, but you should consider making your icons on the "Portfolio" page a little bigger to get rid of some of the white space.

I like it, very simple. Maybe and inspiring quote would help?
