If you haven’t noticed, this website just got a facelift. Okay, I can’t even call it a facelift. We took the name, threw away the rest, and genetically re-engineered a new body. Completely.
I talked to tons of people about what they like in website design, etc. And it really came down to two things, at least for a photography website. Make it easy to navigate and have some great pictures.
So, no more Flash. Yes, it’s all “pretty.” But programming it was a nightmare and it actually discouraged me from updating it regularly. I had to essentially relearn Flash every time I wanted to make a change (I tend to push non-essential stuff out of the brain to make room). Losing the Flash also allows me to move up the Google SEO ladder with more ease. I’ve been competing against websites that are designed with Google in mind and essentially mine looks like a blank page to the all-powerful G-machine (even with that, we’ve always been in the top spots due to some fleet-footed maneuvering, lol). I’m excited that we’ll all be on even footing!
All this to say, I’m still ironing some stuff out. Please ignore the little mistakes, etc. and know that everything will be up to speed SOON!
