It's that time of year when people decide to spring clean, which prompted me to do something about my website. I felt it was too clumsy and confusing with a mixture of street photography and landscapes, so I made the decision to split them up as I have a couple of photo hosting accounts already with Smugmug & Squarespace.
I have always found that my landscape images appeared much better on Sumgmug, I am not sure why, possibly because they show up big and clean, giving the audience a better overall experience. With this in mind, I embarked on transferring my landscape work across to Smugmug.
I have to admit, I suck at any kind of design, and that includes web design, so it was to be expected that I hit a brick wall straight away, not knowing the difference between folders, galleries and pages and how they interact with each other. I watched a couple of Youtube videos which helped me enough to set up a functional site, but it just didn't flow well. At this point I posted a FB message in one of the communities seeking help, I never expected Alastair Jolly (Smugmug business development manager) to reach out to me. With Alastair's help, the website is starting to take shape, and I am hopeful that we will have a slick website within a few weeks. So watch this space for further development :-)
