Do you think that it is enough of a non-issue, that I should go back to regular text?
    The font is georgia.
    The real issue is spacing. Things can start to move around when different fonts start filling in spaces that are tightly planned. It shouldn't be to much of an issue with Georgia, since those machines which do not have it will substitute (probably) Times. (OK, time for the type guys to chime in and give me lots of grief here.) I don't happen to think it makes that big a difference with a site that uses little text and a serif font. IT'S ALL ABOUT THE IMAGES.

    Good looking site, Jason. Classy, understated and, of course, filled with great pictures.

    Looks very good Jason and I too experienced the same thing as Ari clicking on the nude. Men are pigs and we go immediately to the bare bottom.

    Looks good. FWIW, "portraits" is misspelled.

    Well, I went immediately to the "Holga" gallery and got the same message, so nyahhh. What would be nice, while waiting for the galleries to be populated, would be enabling the alluring thumbnails to be clicked on for a larger image. In its current form they remain thumbnails and only link to the "Check back" message. Just a thought. Minor nitpick.

    The site looks good, navigates easily, and I dig the black background. Very nice.

    I too apprciate the very clean, almost minimalist, look. I have only minor suggestions:

    - comment on the lasting, archival nature of the prints in "about the prints" (even though it's mentioned in the description of each image)
    - increase the vertical spacing of the links on the left.

    Jason,

    some lovely images - they make me realise just how much work I have to do to improve my own.
    One thought: I wonder whether a thin white border around the pics might help? Some of them tend to get a bit lost in the black background. It might just help them stand out a bit more.

    Just my 0.2p worth...

    Jason,
    Nice beginning to your website. Clean design and easy to naviigate as others have already noted. In the, About the Print section, you used as much space in the first paragraph telling the viewer what your work "ISN'T" as you did telling them what it "IS." Your use of traditional photgraphy is fine, just don't beat a dead horse over the non-digtal issues. 99% of those visiting will see "traditional photography" and know immediately your approach.
    Good luck!
    Walker
