When i saw the link i was like... how long is that thing?

I'd seriously consider having a bit of fun with the name and change it to either "Newfound Landscape Photography" or just "Newfound Photography". Newfound has a new kind of ring to it and it still points to Newfoundland.

I don't think "Landscape" adds anything of value to the name. People will make that out at first glance on your site and surely your business cards and the fact that they saw you pointing your camera at the landscape rather than a model.

Here is a little thing I noticed in your ordering page:
"We sell Newfoundland Landscape Photography in two forms: digital files and physical format (prints, canvas, plaque mount)." You're actually saying you are selling your company. You might want to re read your texts and get the little things out ;).

(btw: I am bookmarking your site to use it for inspiration and learning to improve my own photography ;))

Hmmm. Browsing a bit more.

Your Q&A section is geared at photographers it seems. Why are you mentioning RAW, apertures and such on your website?

In your gallery you mention "The vast majority of landscape photos are in a 2x3, 4x6, 12x18 or 24x36 aspect ratio." When I convert that to the actual aspect ratio's, that is 2x3, 2x3, 2x3 or 2x3. That doesn't scream professionalism to me. Again, just go over the texts again :).

And, perhaps more importantly, will the $75 and $125 photographs have their watermark removed? That seems like serious money and in that case I wouldn't want to have to pay for the advertisement. (although I leave that business decision to your own vision :))

Agree with these. A photographer's website should be about the images and services without mentioning gear or software.

And there's mention of "we" on some pages but the "about" is all about Zach which would be "I". And the beginning of the 4th paragraph on the about page doesn't read well with that punctuation. Plus you mention Allie only once without saying anything about her.
