I made a decision early in the year to create another photography site. Because I own a couple of businesses in Houston and I am a musician, many people know me. Some folks aren't as comfortable as others with glamour photography, so I thought it best to keep 2 sites...1 will be fashion, casual and headshot oriented while the other will focus primarily on glamour and various styles of nudes.

Please take a look at my new site and offer opinions, ideas and any glitches you may find. I know of one internal gallery link that needs to be fixed.

Looking for opinions on the layout and flow primarily. I KNOW NOTHING about web design...web designers need to eat too, so I pay them to make it happen...LOL...so please don't get real technical with me or I won't understand ya [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Taking a fast break from toning and scoped out the site, Bobby ... looks really good. Clean, easy to naviagate and OH those images! Just beautiful work, sir! Besides the deal link you noted, I wasn't able to get the Contact TIL link to open up (so you may want to have your designer double chec that as well).

Hope that wasn't TOO techincal for ya ... lol

Bobby, your site looks good, nice transition, I tried doing my own website on 1and1.com, but couldn't do much with it, they'll offer you certain things but when you ask for it, its another upgrade, oh well lesson learned

Hi Bobby

Your site looks really nice and contains some fabulous images. I can't tell you how to do it, but a previous/next button to allow scrolling the images once you open a gallery would be nice. It would reduce some motion for the viewer as opposed to opening a new window for each image.

Other than that, you have a really nice collection and flow.

Bill

Understood, Bobby. Sure wish we were still in an age when all we had to do was shoot the photo, soup the negs and print em. Would sure make our jobs easier, huh? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Tried it myself once too Dusty...but I got tired of saying "you gotta be effin kidding me"...every time I tried to make it work...

SOOOoooo, I figured its best to pay someone...

Michael Cercone and Edward Grant (members on GG) built the site for me. They also built my other site as well. I would recommend speaking with them if you have a need to revamp or build a site...

Bobby-G:

Good idea for separating the two sites. I thought I'd give you a couple suggestions:

<ul type="square"> [*]I think keeping a little more consistancy by having images as links on all the pages instead of just the main page. The text links are okay, but it would be a slicker to have those sub-pages as images, too.[*]When you activate the link for the email, I would suggest a form that the user fills out instead of a mailto link. It will prevent spiders and bots from scraping your page for email addresses for spamming purposes (not that our new spamming legislation has stopped all spamming).[/list]
