Hi IO

Thanks for the feedback. Because it is a template site I am limited with the number of menu tabs I can use. Do you have any suggestions regarding shuffling them? Perhaps I could place bookings on the availability tab which might reduce about us by one level. Any other suggestions please?

Many thanks

Shane

Your pricing needs to be broken to down and posted on the site. a base of $500 doesn't tell anyone what it includes.

List your packages and pricing. Show/tell what all is included with each package. The "customer" needs to know how much they are going to pay and what all they are getting. It makes them feel better about what they are going to pay for your services. Maybe understand a bit more about what is involved in your costs. It's not just snapping images and giving them prints. There's work that goes into each shot with post processing and so on.

Remove the "links" entirely. The last thing you want to do is give your viewers a portal to leave your website! Who knows, if they take a link they may not return to your site at all. Do whatever you can to keep them enthralled in what you are showing them about you.
