Hi all,

After many years as second photographer at a major city studio I have had a"seachange" and moved to a regional seaside area to set up my own studio.

As a part of this I have just finished building my website, and I would appreciate any comments on its ease of loading, professionalism of appearance, or any other relevant comments.

The site can be accessed here:

Thanks in advance!

Antony

Nice and clean looking site. You have very nice captures also. Flash gallery is a tad slow though. When putting together a site you should keep the ten second rule in mind, most visitors lose interest waiting for a site to load. Keeping a site to a low load time will make your visitors have a nice experience.


Just another shutterbug.

the site looks great but I would change the navigation wording from "services" to "pricing"

Ok, I have changed some images, made the menu items gifs, changed my pricing page to reflect a different model and done a couple of other minor changes.

I still need to alter the gallery so it appears more like the balance of the site (like a white border print) and also change the image on the Services page in the same manner.

That said, I am getting happier with it.

Your Contact page is redundant.

I know - I need to put in a web contact form, just can't work out which to use yet. Thanks for the comment!

Its definitely worth the effort though, I started off without one and its amazing how the enquiries jumped when I added the contact form ..... I guess some people just find it easier to bash stuff into a contact form rather than compose their own email.

When you do make a contact form dont make the same mistake I made and label the background fields as "name" "email" etc ... just call em 1, 2, 3 or something random on the back end otherwise you will be easy meat for the spam bots that auto complete them just like I was.
