  1. I gravitated to your video portfolio page as I do video work too. I found that the video display was rather blurred and showed what I think are compression artefacts. I guess this may be to do with the way Smugmug stores and presents the videos, but I'm not sure it is the best advert for the quality of your work. Is there an option to display videos at a lower resolution so the  effects of compression aren't so noticeable?


    I've altered the settings, you can now view 1080p quality videos. 

  2. Many thanks John, infact a big thanks for all the comments, very much appreciated.   


    I've done some updates on the stock page including adding some new photos that aren't in the portfolio pages to show a greater range. I've also added a tear-sheet. 

  3. Really like your pictures. The only thing I really really hate is that you talk about yourself in the third person. This sounds really awkward. 


    The funny thing is, I changed that yesterday as a lot of websites I viewed seemed to do that. 


    I've got my own domain name, updated the CNAME yesterday, hopefully will work tonight. 


    At the moment the point of the site is to showcase my work, to help get accreditation for events. Seems to have worked as I've got my first house-photographer gig tomorrow. 


    I'm moving into event photography, I want to attend as many as possible to build experience and a good portfolio. 


    Exciting times. :)

  4. I had a look through the website links, some are amazing, all very impressive and well beyond what I could do. I also tracked down your website which I liked a lot. I made my own website years ago, using frontpage! It did the job but not professional. 


    Your post really got me thinking about what my site is about. 

  5. That's a lot to think about Robert. I will certainly try to take on board what I can. I will spend time looking at other websites. I may decide a link my Alamy photos doesn't help the site. But it shows people my full collection.


    Money and limited website building experience being the reason I went with smugmug. So far I'm happy with them.


    Ultimately the site will succeed or fail on how I present the photos. To keep people interested.


    Thanks for the honest advice and your experience.
