I’m really excited to present Elizabeth’s latest website. Her photography is amazing and is truly representative of her personal style:straightforward,easy to look at,intimate,dramatic and daring.
You won’t see a lot of fancy stuff;creating a stripped-down website is not always easy for a photographer. There are millions of tools and designs being marketed for photography sites and blogs and it was a lesson in restraint to design a simple,solid,self-managed website.Our task was to update her most recent WordPress site. Her work has evolved from wedding and portrait photography to documentary and professional portrait photography. Elizabeth has devoted herself to using her photography to benefit charity,specifically the mission to uplift the lives of children and families in Malawi and breast cancer. She has already achieved remarkable recognition from Madonna and Gucci and helped raise millions of dollars for Malawi and UNICEF.
She’s also begun photographing victims of trauma and raises funds for the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Her Field Trips will also be part of her new quest to reach out and give back to students who wish to travel and learn from Elizabeth’s unique vision.
Her style has shifted from what I would say is intimate and cherished to a darker,more poignant and mature view.
WordPress is amazing and with the help of a new developer I’ve found,we created a really nice site that focuses on Elizabeth’s work,not on the way it was made. The plugins are custom,the template is heavily customized and I’m really proud to be associated with Elizabeth and her work.
The heavy lifting came when we had to find a way to resize all the images so they would look perfect no matter what screen size,resolution,browser or operating system was in play. I learned a lot,but most of all,I learned how hard it can be. (Hooray for David Conway,but more about him later.)
We’re adding and adjusting our keyword research and will never really finish the ongoing quest for organic search-friendly design,but the pictures are there.
How does it look?
