Hello everyone! Just spent the time to add some new work and streamline my site. Would love some opinions if you have the time ;)

If your using your website to attract more clients, you should read my SEO link in my sig.

My big issue is your galleries. I have no idea how many photos you have on each gallery. I would like to see a count, or a thumbnail under the photo. Just something. I'm just not going to start clicking "Next image".

I'll take a look at the SEO section.

I just updated it to have 'Previous / Next 1 of 21' so there is some sort of idea. The thumbnails are too much and cause too much scrolling imo. I like the simplicity.

I'm already having to scroll to view your site, but I'm using a small monitor. Adding the count is a good compromise. :)

There is no arrow as you can click anywhere on the image to advance to the next image, I will look into this though.

It should also have a nudity advisory. I made the mistake of clicking on the 'Women' gallery.

I think your website displays your images very well. There is no clutter and I was able to go through your images easily and enjoy them.

One of the most important things these days is responsive design. You should optimize it for mobile phones too...

Ive also seen a syntactical error on your website. Must be a "<" to much somewhere in your html

There is a mobile version as well. It can be viewed on phones, I omitted tablets though. Should I change that?

Where is the error that you saw? I'll correct it.

I don't own a mobile device, but using this, http://quirktools.com/​screenfly/ (external link), your site isn't very mobile-friendly.

Am I missing something? I just tried that site and all it seems to do is show your site at a set pixel dimension, without actually taking into account how your phone/browser works. I have a Galaxy SIII phone and screenfly just displays my website at the dimension of the SIII screen (640x360). However, my SIII doesn't do that. It scales the site slightly so what I get on my phone is very different to what screenfly shows.

That website does not load it correctly. If you try it on an iphone or another mobile device, it will load a mobile version of the website.
