84westWhat's your goal with this site? Right now it seems like a collection of random images and fells a little unfinished. Are you trying to market yourself to potential clients? Is it just a means to share your work? Your bio is split on to two pages and could be condensed. It it is meant to be, as you say a running journal, then perhaps a more linear format might work better.
honestly it definitely is unfinished, between multiple other jobs, recreating, and working out its been a little tough to find time to work on it and I'm mostly just experimenting with it at this point, hence why I dropped it here for some feedback. I am working on a few blog posts which would give it a little more of a "linear format" for a "running journal" but I'm a perfectionist and a procrastinator so I haven't published any blogs yet. And for the photos it is a little random but it is pretty much in running order of my life. I just wanted it showcase a few albums that are fun to scroll through quickly, while the writing would be for those who want to dig in a little deeper and learn about the stories behind the photos.
And i split the bio in two because I had the longer version at first, but my buddy thought it was too long for the limited attention spans of the internet today. So I made a shorter one, but still liked the longer one so I kept it as a secondary link again, for those who are interested in reading a little bit further. I see how it could feel disjointed and I probably should find a way to combine it all in a concise manner.
SEABURNUse something other than "Portfolio" in the upper left corner. Your name/business name would be best. "portfolio" does nothing for you, and just distracts the viewer from the photos.
yeah I really want to replace the button with a logo for my business, gotta see if my friend who's a graphic designer could hook it up. And yeah I know i could trim down the photos a little bit to just showcase the best, but I was mostly just interested in having some content up there right now. Also thinking of labeling and captioning all of my photos, but I'm wary of the "instagramification" of the outdoors so I sort of like keeping it mysterious.
