My new web portfolio/site
This site has been made to use as a calling card for Laura (my lovely wife) and my work. We are sending print portfolios to gallery's and it
seems to be mandatory for the gallerists to see the work before you can even send in a portfolio.
This is not a commercial website in any stretch... I would appreciate any constructive critisism, there are changes being made now and in the future to the grammar and
some of the images, but I am most interested in hearing if the site is effective in communicating what Laura and I do as photographers.
Our goal is to have the portfolio on the West Coast in January and start moving back to the east coast to different potential gallerys.
Here is the site www.patersoncarnie.com
PE - I know you are going to hammer me on the word solarization, but its not changing.
Very nice site. Easy to navigate and I like the idea of both of you on the site. Great idea! Also, your wife's IR work is gorgeous! I didn't think IR in the winter would look good, but now I'm going to try it.
I like it a lot, Bob.
Question, is the word "printing" supposed to be in this sentence in your bio?
"...where he has developed an international reputation for traditional and digital fine art printing for acclaimed photographers, galleries and museums." It seems to beg a verb there. Otherwise, I am very impressed; nice and simple. Makes me want to take a hack-saw and cut all the extraneous crap out of my site.
Well, done, sir!

Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points
system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...
you are right... this is why I am putting it out there..I will have my guy add this.
thanks for the kind words.

Sponsored Ad. (Subscribers to APUG have the option to remove this ad.)
Overall I liked your site but there is a small thing that kinda bothers me and it's on the start site, your wife's image is as wide as the text and square whereas your image is smaller than the text and rectangular this makes the site look a little unbalanced imo other than this small thing nothing to complain about. The difference between your wife's and your work as well as your styles are clearly communicated right from the start.
Thank you I will contemplate this.
I work with 8x10 and 4x5 aspect ratio and my wife works with square or 35mm aspect ratio and I did find this concerning each time we make invite cards for shows and yes I was a bit
concerned about this.. very good observation.

My only critique is that on the portfolio pages it is very easy to click through landscape-oriented images, but when a portrait-orientatation is encountered it is necessary to scroll down a bit (at least on my MacBook), then scroll back up to click to the next image.
and all ... this is exactly what I am looking for as the site is still in testing phase.
