I didn’t become an outdoor photographer so I could spend all my time building and maintaining a professional website. Thankfully, with website providers like Squarespace it has become super easy to create a beautiful, functional website. My old website had become completely outdated in both design, aesthetics and technology. But, building a new site was about as appealing as breaking both of my arms. So, when I fell off a cliff mountain biking in Sedona and broke both arms, it seemed like as good a time as any to use my double casted appendages to build a new online home one slow keystroke at a time.
My three main goals for the new site were simplify, simplify, simplify. The old site was cluttered and contained way too many images, many of which were subpar. It was filled with far more information than was necessary and failed to emphasize the one thing any photographer’s website should emphasize: the images. With this new site I have cut & chopped, sliced & diced until I felt I’d reached the right balance of content without clutter. I spent countless hours sorting through thousands of photographs, selecting only those for inclusion on this site that I feel best represent my artistic talents.
Over the coming weeks I’ll make a few minor edits to the site, including the addition of a sleek new logo, but for all intents and purposes, this is it. I hope you’ll spend a few minutes poking around on the new site. I’d love to hear your feedback - good, bad or ugly. Feel free to leave a comment or drop me a line via email.
Check back from time to time as I will occasionally add new images, and I’m really excited to have a venue on which I can again share a few thoughts, so be sure to keep an eye on the blog. One of my first posts will be up on Friday and I think you’re really going to enjoy it. The first in what will become a regular series called “Behind the Image”, I’ll talk about the backstory to one of my favorite images, “Winter at the Windows.”
Until then, thanks for taking the time to check out my new site!
