New look, new beginning

Chances are if you visit this photography site with any consistency, you’ll notice things look a little different today. This redesign has been a long time coming and I was finally motivated last week to get it done.

The old design was great, but I felt it was lacking in simplicity and focus. When you arrived at the frontpage, it was hard to determine just exactly what kind of photography I did. Better yet, I felt it led visitors to believe I only did outdoor, landscape images when in fact I do much more.

I love the new frontpage. The background texture is one I shot at a nearby desert recharge park in Chandler. The images on the slideshow give a quick overview of some of my best work and the style of photography I love. The blurbs at the bottom guide newcomers where they want to go. Moreover, it’s much easier to find a way to contact me on the site.

The information presented on the various pages for portraits, events and prints has been updated. My “about” page rewritten.

Above all, I feel like this is a new beginning for my photography business. Good things are happening around here and I want to stay ahead of the curve.

I appreciate and love all those who support me and my photography…I can’t tell you how blessed I am. Thank you for stopping by. Please take a moment to look around the new site and let me know what you think!

Also, a super special thanks to my amazing wife (of almost 12 years) for helping me put the finishing touches on the site. She helped me decide on the background, proofread my jibberish, twisted and turned them into coherent sentences, and I look much better for it. Simply put, she’s the best thing in my life and I couldn’t do any of this without her. Thank you Jina!
