I shoot for one local racetrack every week as the track photographer and also at a couple others occasionally. I supply pictures to the track and local media as requested and also can sell prints and digital copies to the racers and fans.

I have two objectives with my website.

1) Promote the racetrack with a weekly feature article for each division. The feature articles have a photo gallery at the end of the article with watermarked thumbnail images from that week. The previous weeks pictures are moved to a separate a tab for each track identified by date and division.

2) Provide a method for the racers to see the images for either viewing and/or orders. I don't take orders direct from the site, but my contact info is available to order. I print myself at home and either hand deliver at the track or mail. Sold double than I did last year, so having the site has helped improve my visibility

I have received complements from several racers and fans, but looking for your feedback. Took me a while to create, but I really like this theme and structure.

Heya,

Works for me. I was able to easily navigate and find things without having to really hunt around and search, so very user-friendly. Also, the loading speed was very peppy which is a big deal when loading a lot of photos like that (I often will leave a website if it just takes too long to load images; I find a lot of word press blogs have abysmally slow performance and will not bother). Yours is pushing images fast, which is great.

Very best,

You provide an email address (which you may want to hyperlink...so they can click it and it go straight to their email compose), but have you considered a form to fill out to simplify the process at all?

I use jotform.com for my "contact me" information. I'd think it could be modified to provide a simplified selection process for your clients.
