Been inactive on here for some time now as i've been busy bringing up a couple of new editions to the family.
Got a bit more time on my hands now so i've decided to kickstart my photography with a fresh new website.
Will be more involved on these forums also as i've missed them a lot.

Comments welcome, good or bad

Nice website, only on comment- when you click on your logo it doesnt take you back to the original home page, it looks like its trying to direct me to your old page or some sort of test page.

On the "Ian Geddes" page you swap from 3rd person to 1st person & back to 3rd. Make it one or the other but not both.

Nice clean site & well laid out. I particularly like the portraits page, although In my opinion you could do with more models & fewer photos of each; nice as they are.

Thanks George, logo now fixed.

Will re write the about me page, thanks adrian.
Needing a bit more content for it thats for sure.

Some nice images there! But what do you want me, as a visitor, to do now? Better tell me!

Front page: far too many words. Some (most) of the content from your introduction could usefully go in your About Me page letting your pictures do their thing. You also need a more prominent "Call to action" up front - you already whisper "feel free to contact me"; how about shouting "Call me now" instead? Oh, and put your phone number on the front page.
I'd also think about separating the blog which is a great feature into its own page rather than tacking it on the bottom of the front page.
I'd also think about removing the comment form from the pages of your images.

Other pages: think about putting a call to action on all your other pages "Want pictures like these? Call me now on ..."

It will feel like you're blowing your own trumpet too much to start with but if you don't, who will?

Good luck with it!
