I’m so super excited to unveil my new website just in time for the holidays! Most of the tweaks are actually pretty small, but overall I love the new design and hope you will too!
Here’s what’s new:
The Homepage – A slideshow of big, screen filling images and minimal text now greet you when you first stop by the website. This clean, modern approach is far less cluttered than the old site and easily the most noticeable and dramatic change.
Responsive Design – The entire website is designed to shrink and stretch to accommodate different sized screens and viewing platforms, making the site easier to view on multiple devices including phones, tablets, and computers.
Responsive Images – Images resize to fit your screen. Smaller versions of images automatically on smaller screens for faster performance on mobile devices and larger images have even more clarity on high resolution retina displays. The images do resize according to horizontal resolution, so if you find yourself still having to scroll up and down to see the entire image create a narrower browsing window and the problem will resolve itself.
Larger Images – Images on the new website are at least 50% larger than the old site, so viewers with larger monitors and retina displays will be able to appreciate much more.
New Font – The entire website now uses a clean sans serif font for easier viewing and a contemporary look. This font is also more reader friendly for those with failing vision or reading difficulties.
New Logo – I’ve redesigned my logo to better reflect my evolving style and match the clean font of the new site. Plus its got color!
New Galleries and Images – I reorganized some existing galleries and have added some new photos to the website to showcase the diversity of subject matter I shoot. Expect to see more new images added in the coming months.
Updated Search Feature – The search page on the new website also has a search map that suggests keywords for searching and organizes images – eventually it will also enable you to find images not found in the regular galleries.
Special thanks to my web designer, Jack Brauer of Wide Range Galleries, and my friends Todd Miller, Andrew Bagley, Rebecca Inver, and Sean Wiley for beta testing the new design for me and giving me some great feedback. I hope you like the new site!
