Today I made the decision that it is time to start my new photography blog AND my new photography website. It is a very exciting day for me as I was holding back a lot of beautiful pictures and ideas for a long time. Why? Because I wanted to do something new, better then what we used to from the internet when it comes to photograhy websites.

Over the last 3!!! years we developed with some professional software programmers a new software, from scratch, with all my ideas on how I can show YOU my work better, nicer, more efficient AND how I can improve YOUR experience while on my website.

I'm a professional photographer for over 25 years and I needed to make sure that my visitors are getting what they are looking for. I have mostly 2 different visitors on my site. One is a picture buyer and one is a photography or travel interested visitor. Both looking for something completely different, but I still believe I can satisfy both groups of visitors and fans with all the new tools we've developed and combined on one website.

We have so many new features now that it will take me a while to show them in detail to you. I will do this in my blog from time to time. 3 years of development, 1000's of hours of programming, debugging and dreams - our new website is one of the biggest investments we ever made  (savings are all gone now) but I strongly believe that our new photography website will give you a user experience which you don't get on many other photography websites (till they start copying us). Not all new features are already live but we will be rolling out new features as soon as they are stable.

Most of the website should work without any problems, but please be aware that we are still actively working on the software so once a while we may find a new bug and it may take us a few days to correct it.

PLEASE be an active part of this website - we have built it for YOU - my visitors!

So here it is - my first photography blog on the new software. Tell me what you think about it so far, again, all our new features will be opened over the coming days and weeks and I will explain all to you.

The first part is the layout - we have our main navigation on the top and I decided for a right column for further links. I also decided to show my images a bit larger so you can see more details (more to come in this department soon). A darker colour should improve the contrast but I decided against black as I think it is getting a bit boring.

What do you think about it? Let me know and please leave your comment.
