    Hey guys, if you don't mind, please check out my new photography website.
    My brother did the design and programming and we just launched it formally today after lots of testing, bug fixes, design tweaks, etc. But I'd still feel better getting a few more eyes to check it out.
    It's not exactly dial up friendly (give it a shot anyway, let me know how that goes), and you will need flash.

    Next we will be doing a stripped down smartphone friendly version and then a matching blog that will not be flash based.

    Please let me know if you encounter any problems, and any comments you may have (good or bad) on the design, navigation, etc.
    Just keep in mind that my target audience is more corporate, commercial, small business types. My specialty is architecture and product/food photography.

    Blue Lemon Photo

    Thanks! :^:

    You photography skills are impressive. The website is very well done, professional looking and I think it will leave a good impression on your target audience. I clicked though a lot of pages and did not come across any issues.

    I'm using google chrome for my browser

    Thanks guys!

    Ya, it's part time for me and I don't need to be getting phone calls during my real job. :mrgreen:
    I find email is fine for now. I'd also rather read what they have to say and really think about my answer before responding. And at that point they will receive my phone number. Most of my work comes from referrals though.

    WOW those are some great pics.

    I also like the way the mouse interacts with everything your bro knows what he is doing

    I also expect you will be entering the pic of the month with something!!!!!

    It is better to have the form as do because you avoid spammers, telemarketers, etc. Trust me on this! :D

    site looks awesome, my question is... is the purpose of the site as a portfolio or is it selling prints? I couldn't tell right away.
