    Hello Stephen,

    Wow!...There is a lot of stuff there. You are a busy guy. I like the way the images are displayed: just hover, don't click. The slow fade-out-fade-in transition is pretty keen, but I want to see it NOW. I would change that...others may really like it that way,; its an esthetic thing and up to you.

    The site is hard for me to read. The bright white background and lighter colored text is hard to make out. I would go with a darker background and lighter ltext. The darker background will frame your images better too. I do like the blocky font.

    The three column format is common now and it makes your site look a little like a news letter, and it seems...busy. My wife describes (accuses?) me of being linear in thought process. So take that "busy" remark with a grain of salt.

    Is that blunt enough?
    Great Images!
    Regards,
    Drew Bedo

    Very nice site. I particularly like the changing images on your front page...it creates more dynamic content than a single static image.

    Looks pretty good, and your work is really nice. It seems like there are too many categories on the left side of the home page to me. I'd consider a few links like "photos", "products", "news and services", then break those down (into, for example, portfolios, recent work, stock under photos) on pages they are linked to. That's just how I like things organized myself, though. Maybe others are fine with your current setup.

    I'm OK with the background/print contrast, but I see Drew's point as well. I'd say if it is tough for anyone then you might change it.
