You’ll have noticed that my website has changed somewhat since your last visit here- you did visit before – didn’t you? 🙂
I’ve been working on this new design for some now – quite a few months actually! My previous website was build around the Photoshelter service. Photoshelter provide website templates and a shopping cart facility. So all that functionality was outsourced to them. My photos will still be available to purchase there for another month or two, until I make the full switch over to here.
Early in 2014, I decided that I would like to have more control over my site and my photographs. While Photoshelter do an excellent job, I want to be personally responsible for the final product. I think this is something that all photographers aspire to. Despite the advances of digital photography, in the end it all comes down to the print!
So, over the next few months, I will be taking charge of printing all of my own images and can personally vouch for every print that gets delivered. The new website design also incorporates some of my commercial activities that were not so obvious before. Have a look through my house and home shoots as well as my event photography. Product imagery is another area that I have been experimenting with, and one that I intend to do more of in the future.
You’ll also notice that I have decided to enter the photography workshop market. This is an area that I’m very excited about as I really enjoy working with people and passing on whatever knowledge I have gleaned over the years. If this is something you may be interested in, see more here.
In many ways, photographing a product is very much like photographing a person. Each is different and it is the job of the photographer to portray this individuality to the viewer.
So, welcome to my new site. I hope you’ll continue to follow me through this and my Facebook page. As always, feel free to comment, share or contact. Ciao.
