New Website Launch

I am very pleased and excited to announce the launch of my new commercial photography  website.

Designed to attract the interest of  creatives and in house marketing professionals by providing a streamlined single page of information with immediate and functional portfolio browsing. The result is a minimalist gallery presentation which resizes and responds to different mobile devices and screen sizes. Developer James Lindeman provides a little insight into the thought process to achieve this.

‘Full screen or large images on websites can work really well, and it may have seemed like an obvious place to start here. Although after a few prototypes we realised we actually wanted to avoid setting a pace, at least when someone first loads the page, and we wanted that experience to feel very similar across various devices and screen sizes. After more work on the gallery we found something we felt fit. The user has the option to browse a lot of images almost straight away without the gallery compromising other content by forcing a change in pace.

Although there are some subtle and necessary differences to the design on different devices and screen sizes, we tried to make these small. There is no mobile ’version’ of the site. The content available is the same whether on a smart phone or large desktop computer. The images in the gallery load depending on your viewable area which is intended to keep the site as fast as it can be without trying to guess your bandwidth or intended use.’

Online Client Gallery

It is now possible for clients to view images after a photo shoot online without downloading any files. Full resolution files can be selected and shared with the lightbox facility. In addition to commercial commissioned work, the online gallery serves as an archive for stock images available for purchase under licence. As well as the purchase of prints and images with a personal use licence. Take a look at the gallery site!

The site is straightforward to use and provides facilities to share galleries and images via facebook, twitter and email. The lightbox feature is particularly useful to create a selection of favourite images which can be shared between registered users. It can also serve as a means to order or download full resolution image files. Please contact Alex Orrow directly to discuss the great benefits of an online gallery to archive and share your images.
