New Website

Hello all. I have just finished coding my new website and wanted to see what you all thought about it. Spent the last few months learning flash and coding away. Was quite a feat, but nonetheless enjoyable to complete. Thanks for your input.

Fantastic site with great samples! (Even though I'm not a fan of Flash :) I only have one very, small suggestion... you look kind of "tough" for a wedding videographer with the stance in your bio picture. Would a bride be a little intimidated? Just wondering.

Good luck!
Deborah

Thanks for the positive feedback. That is quite funny about the picture and stating it is a pose that does offer a bit of intimidation. I hadn't realized that until you mentioned that and it made me chuckle. I will see if I can round up a better pose that might make me look friendly. Promise I am not that mean. :)

After reading Deborah's comment, I browsed, maybe a sports jacket and a slack would be much more appealing. The pictures may make the impression that you will shoot their wedding in jeans. Great input from the ladies.

Good looking site Jeff. The gals may be right about how you're dressed since you are going after brides, but maybe not. What do I know? It's been mostly grooms that contacted me for weddings. Probably since they've seen me out and about shooting sports.

The way you're dressed is how all the camera ops dress around here shooting sports, news, and even the crews working on feature films.

Consider that you are indirectly competing with the photographer (budget) and some bride's are severely judgmental. She's looking around websites and sees photographer bio, and thinks "sharply dressed". Then she sees your bio. Which one will she think is more professional and more deserving of the larger portion of her money?

Personally, I would omit the camera in your bio. IMHO bios should be purely about character. Bio with no cam, states that the Artist is greater than the Tools. On the rare instance that I've been asked what camera I shoot with, I've responded with "a black one." lol
