Welcome to my newly redesigned site. I’m really excited about finally having some new capabilities. I have wanted to do this for some time but kept putting it off due to the magnitude of the change and my lack of knowledge in this area. Making this change has been highly rewarding and has taught me some new skills. So, what’s new? Well, here is a short list of new features;
- Blog: By far the biggest addition is the implementation of a blog. It will allow me to communicate more details to you about images that I post. These posts will also have more information about the equipment, settings and post processing work, and a better description about how I setup the image. You can now sign up to email notifications each time a new item has been posted, and you can now comment on each post. You can subscribe to my blog posts here.
- Site Design: The most visual change is the site design. I’m able to deliver content in a much better way using current technology and features. You’ll see what I mean as you go through the site.
- Sharing: The system will allow you to share posts with your favorite social media sites such as Google+, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. You may also “like” a post, portfolio or gallery by clicking on the heart shape.
- Search: Both site search and search engine have been implemented allowing you to find the information you need faster and allowing external searches from search engines like Google and Yahoo.
- Improved Portfolios and Galleries: The new formats for portfolios and galleries allow me to better showcase my work.
- Analytics: Most of you know that I love data! I’m able to get anonymous information about the amount of traffic hitting the site. This provides me with immediate feedback on changes that are made and what works for you and what does not.
- Workflow Integration: I can now integrate my site directly with my Lightroom software (where I keep my catalog). I can synchronize images between the site and Lightroom allowing me to make changes later on that reflect in existing portfolios and galleries.
- Email Posts: Posting through email is now possible. So, I can post things while traveling or even on a shoot.
- Security: This is an area of great importance to me. Security is much improved over the old platform.
The site is designed to share my photography work with each of you but also to have a bi-directional conversation about my work, photography in general and the gear associated with my hobby. Expect periodic updates as I retrofit my old images and provide posts that keep you all informed.
Please check back from time to time and more importantly, add your email to my distribution list by entering your email information in the designated section. You can opt out at any time.
Thanks again for visiting. I hope you enjoy my work.
