    Looking for Good Examples of Photographers Websites

    I'm in the planning stages for a much needed redesign of my website. It's been over two years since I put it up, and want to add a lot of new stuff to it. I've spent the last few days clicking around the web checking out photographers sites and have been really disapointed for the most part. It seams that a lot of photographers think they are web designers... most arent

    What are your favorite photographer website? what do you like about them? What do you look for when going to a photographers website?

    Brian,

    Well mines an example of how not to do it, but there are many members here who's sites I like.

    The latest one I found was Neal's (flotsam). Good clean look, well labeled and easy to navigate and no broken links (always very annoying).

    I happen to think that mine is pretty slick. (see link in signature) Even though one of the ways to navigate is currently out of order, but I doubt anyone notices.

    I like

    http://www.billatkinson.com/Homepage.pl
    and
    http://www.paulschilliger.com/

    They are easy to navigate and I would go so far as to say elegant (as much as a website can be called elegant.)

    Well hard for me to say what I like, but I will tell you what I dont like....flash media, blogs, cute graphics jumping all around, small thumbnails, opening a new page to see the pic from the thumbnail ( I specially hate this one, what PITA!), overly done graphics like frames, shadows, weird colors.

    Here are some I like with some comments:

    http://www.marioabbatepaolo.com/ this one has thumbnails too small for my taste, as well as the pics, but overall design is elegant and simple.

    http://www.garyauerbach.com/main.html borders on the too busy, but good, good sized thumbnails and pics. His pt/pd is not all that great, or at least the scans are not, but the site is good IMO.

    what about mrcallow.com
    Images are sized based upon browser size (hit reload if you resize your browser). Photography is the best on the web and I have absolutely no affiliation with this site.

    My tastes are similar to Jorge's--no Shockwave, Flash, Java, animation, popups, and other crap that just slows everything down. I also prefer images sized for the web, so they don't take longer to load than they need to.

    The site is good, but I am bothered by the artist's use of blurring. It is as if he thinks his compositions are not strong enough without literally dictating the viewer's focus. Many a good picture ruined in my tiny opinion.
