I saw a reference to this site in an European fashion magazine. Noted fashion shooter Rankin has a new book of images of his favorite model out. Thought you might find his site and some of those images interesting.

Those of you who abhor flash... you have been warned!

He has some nice photos, but the way the flash site is designed is poor. He disables the Back button on the browser and this makes it much harder to use than it should be. ON some pages he provides his own Back button, but if you zoom to look at any photo, you are then left without a back button (tested on IE 6). What this means to me is that many people will just leave once they zoom to an image and have no way back to the main menu or gallery menu.
Cheers,

The site is unusable. If Rankin intended to deter potential clients and viewers, he succeeded admirably. Did he actually PAY money to someone to design that site?
 
 
Read the $#@&% instructions!

Whoa... I think we have a case of someone NOT READING THE SITE INSTRUCTIONS!

The site works just fine with IE. It works BEST if you have screen resolution set to 1024 by 768 so you can see everything, including the site instructions.

When viewing his galleries, to go back, you just push your cursor to the top of the screen and a dropdown THUMBNAILS will appear. Click on it and you are back at the... guess what!

Likewise if you push your cursor to either screen side tiny little arrow heads appear, clicking on them the picture will rotate to the previous or next picture. I forget what happens when you push the cursor to the bottom of the screen, maybe it's the home page... I just don't recall off hand. (I went back and looked.. it's image info. To get back to the image, click on the thumbnail.)

There's also a slider bar on the right hand side (sorta maroon looking and it's kinds small) to allow you to scroll the thumbnails pages.

BUT GIVE THE GUY A BREAK! He's a pretty good photographer, and gets big time money for his work. I doubt he's sitting around worrying about his web site...

Then again, Glamour1 is not the most user friendly place to visit either, is it?

But that's just my opinion.

And I did warn ya...

I also found it very easy to navigate once I found the hidden buttons - which didn't take long.
