Redesigned Site For 2016
Its time for a big push in the marketing department. Those lackeys have been slacking off for far too long. Just like in any situation where you're putting your best foot forward, you want to start with how your present yourself. Steam that suit, straighten that tie, get them shoes shiny, make sure there aint no kale in your teeth. Do you smell ok? Yeah, you smell great.
I've been using Rob Haggart's "A Photo Folio" to host my site for some time. Its really the best out there for photographers. Easy to use, infinitely customizable, top notch tech support and they stay current with the changes in technology. (I just learned how to customize my logo for Retina displays! Jiggity!) All the old images came down, all the new ones went up. Theme changed, customized and launched. Simple.
For this iteration of my site, I enlisted Stephanie Menuez to do a reboot. I've been looking at these images for far too long. A lot of stuff needed to be dropped and there was a whole host of new work to hi-light. I think a lot of times we're too close to our own pictures to make an impartial choice about what to show. We have attachment to images. We have stories that go with them. What the day was like, who its of, how we felt when we shot it. Too much baggage. Stephanie has worked in the ad world at some top agencies, as an artist's representative and is now consulting directly with image makers. We started with a number of phone conversations, talking about goals, direction, passion, etc. She's extremely enthusiastic and supportive. I spent a number of days gathering together about eight years worth of work. 15,000 some odd images. Placed onto Dropbox and shared. Steph went through an edited it down to what you can now see on my site. I feel its a very good vision of what I do. What I love to do. On a personal level, it helped me to feel confident in my direction. It was validating as well as emboldening. I feel like I'm at the beginning of something powerful. Theres a lot of work to be done and I'm now standing on a solid foundation.
This suit is pressed and ready to roll.
