Its been over two years since I talked about the revisions on my website. Its about time that I went ahead and reintroduced the new site. It went live last year but it was never 100% complete. Portions of the site were stagnant with “coming soon” text in areas.
Well now it is as close to 100% that its going to get for awhile. Updated portfolios, updated text, updated videos. Honestly I have had a tremendously positive response to the site since the last time I updated it. I can’t believe I used iWeb for so long (first 5 years). The last year or so it has been built with custom code by mainly myself. Today alone I spent 5 hours on the site.
Let me go over the key sections of the newly designed site:
The home page features a redesigned logo by Alexiz. I was and am still very happy with the logo. I find it very versatile, its also on the front of my new books! The homepage is dedicated to what matters most, a big nice large image viewer. Its a smooth square transition from image to image. Each section features 20 images. The home screen features a mix from each section. The new website is now much faster to load than its older versions since it is built in HTML5.
The menu how has a smooth drop down that works easy on any computer or iPad.
The new about me section features more text as well as an updated video. I also include a little bit of information about / links to my books.
The website can be accessed by clicking Portfolio at the top of the page .:)
Following this will be an updated version of the iPhone mobile site, it has needed an update more than anything else. Once again thanks for all of the support and kind words over the years!
to All of you.
I love all of the support you have given me over the years.
I am quickly approaching my sixth year and every year just gets more exciting!
Every comment and page view means so much to me.
I put a lot of time into these images.
I am just trying to share the world with you.
A big thank you and hugs.
I hope to have a show soon, if not this year it will be next.
Shortly after that I should have prints for sale.
I LOVE ALL OF YOU!!!!
please spread the word about my blog to friends and family.
Finally a blog that I can grow with and be proud of.
This blog is filled with a more streamlined look that matches the rest of my sites and color schemes. This guy here has had me up countless nights and although you may not notice much of a difference it makes me very happy.
Featuring large images, twitter integration, a solid contact me page for friends and potential clients, easy access to past blog posts and archives and my new logo!
I have a lot of upcoming images and projects, to name a few:
Monique and Patrick engagement shoot
San Francisco + surrounding areas
New dedicated custom built iPhone and iPad sites!!!
Creating this site has taken far longer than I would have ever expected. Sure it is a completely rebuilt site but…. it looks about the same? (www.peterwphoto.com)
I have been one of the busiest people I know the last few months. Planning for my future and being the most active photographer I know. I have given a lot of thought to the thousands of images captured while on my East Coast trip in early November. I revise my website (peterwphoto.com) every year and this year will be very special. This year will be my fifth year as a photographer. Five years is quite an accomplishment in my eyes and a big tip of the hat to the immense amount of time given to what until this year was a hobby. I will be slowly releasing all of my favorite East Coast images in celebration and in honor of the launch of the fifth version of my website. I will release the images in the two weeks leading up to that moment I bought my first camera, February 14th 2006.
Please join me here, February 1st 2010 to celebrate my biggest release as a photographer thus far.
