So, whats the big news?
Sometime in the next 24 hours, my website will change. Currently, the old site is still available, but it’ll happen.
Currently, my email is down as a result of this change – I’m best reached by phone or Facebook if you don’t have another email address for me.
Why the change? My current website is based on a flash template. This looks pretty when you’re on your computer, but when you try to look at it using an iPhone or an iPad – no go. They don’t support flash at all. My current website is also entirely disconnected from the photos I take for you, and I have a second company handling the printing, ordering and such.
I really really wanted to make both these portions – the website *and* the photo ordering – happen in one place.
So I’m making the switch to a SmugMug Pro account. SmugMug have been around a while, and are easily one of the most popular options for professional photographers looking for a fully integrated website. They have great websites, they work on iPads and iPhones, they support pretty much anything and everything you could wish for, and their ordering is top quality.
Any print you get from SmugMug will be hand color corrected, both by me, and by the print shop that produces the order. Thats huge.
Prices on my prints have not changed – and thanks to more options with SmugMug, prices on digital files have actually come down.
I’ve uploaded all galleries for photo shoots I’ve taken in the past 12 months, and they should be easier to find too. If you have had a photoshoot that isn’t present, then you just need to contact me and I’ll get it up there pronto.
I’m really excited by this change, and I hope you’ll enjoy it. I’ll be sharing a coupon with you that will save you some cash if you wanted to print or reprint anything – just as soon as all these changes go through …
