Although my new site design is quite simple, the beauty of it is in it’s hidden features. Different browser sizes and ratios scale the main images, as well as manipulate the rows and columns of thumbnails. It’s coded all in HTML5 with a WordPress back end. Why HTML over Flash? Flash is dead in the water. No iOS devices such as iPhone’s or iPads will read Flash (a bold move from Apple), and because of this and many other drawbacks, it’s slowly becoming an outdated technology.
The nicest feature to be added to the site is still being coded, which will be a fully functional store for my tutorial DVDs. The newly designed store should launch in a couple weeks.
There are 2 brand new image galleries now online. Origin, a personal series from the volcanic island of Tanna in Vanuatu, and Ice Road Truckers: Deadliest Roads, a shoot I did for the show in History channel. Both have some interesting side stories to come out of those trips, but I will write about this in future posts.
I hope you enjoy the new site. If you find any bugs (I’m sure there will be a few), please let me know!
