Jody Miller Fine Art Equestrian Photography

Horse photographer Jody L Miller unveils her newly designed website.

What happens when you go on a career enhancing photo shoot?  You debut your work at an exclusive invitation only release party as well as feature it in your own gallery.  What next?

I took a serious look at my website.  My interest was in sharing my latest series of photographs and my other celebrated photos with the rest of the world.  My old website was not supporting that goal, nor supporting my interaction with the fans of my work.  Those areas were important to me as I decided what direction to take next online.

Beyond the typical horse lover.

I love being out on a photo shoot and capturing the essence of the horse in a poignant photograph.  What a pleasure to share this with my viewers.  Being able to link to other people who may not think of just the wild west when they look at a horse photograph was also important to me.  It intrigues me to know that people and horses are learning from one another in more therapeutic ways to enrich their lives.  If my work can be a touchstone to people in that respect I absolutely want to be a participant in that.  It feels like an extension of my local interaction in this up and coming area of horse and human therapies.

One area that has taken most of my time and consideration during this website redesign is what horse photographs to include and which ones to leave out. I wanted to have more of a flow about what I was including on my website as far as images and the way they were available.  There are so many options these days for phone covers, screen savers, and home decor that I wanted my site to address those areas as well.  I have one of my own photographs as my phone cover.  That horse photograph is a reminder to me that wherever I am, I am living what I love.  It is another way to enjoy my art.  I have decided to keep each gallery and genre up to date with my latest photographs as well as some of my best sellers.  The images will rotate in and out, and I will be announcing limited editions.  Keep up to date with that area as I will be changing it more than I have done in the past.   I will also be chatting about my upcoming work and developing ideas that I have for the current year.   There is also a section for a workshop or two that I would consider offering, that’s new too.

Click on the Subscription button.

A great addition to my brand new site is a subscription button.  Subscribing brings my latest news directly to your email.  I encourage you to leave comments and share with your friends.  I am eager for this to be a very interactive site with my viewers so if you read something, or see something that one of your friends might find interesting and useful, please share it with them personally or on your choice of your favorite social media page.  I have included share buttons for that.

Big thanks go out to Rich from RLC Design for creating this website and all the hard work and training. With my wonderful team and Rich’s talents, I think we did a great job!

It’s been a wonderfully busy time for me.  I appreciate that so many people continue to connect with my photographs.  I was eagerly looking for easier ways to get my work out there to share with you.  I sincerely look forward to sharing my work and ideas with you here.

Thank you for your continued interest and support of my work.  It is the main reason that I felt that now was the time to make my website even more accessible to all of you.

  1. Watch out world! Jody’s work will absolutely capture your heart and soul as she captures the essence of her “models”. Powerful, tender, finely executed.

  2. Yes, I’m your mom and prejudiced towards you, but…this is one terrific website! Your photos are glorious.

  3. Looking Great Jody! Remember, we have a few more “homework” assignments before we call this really done. And then there’s the ongoing additions. It gives you a reason to get out there and do more photo shoots…..you’ll have more to share here! And I’m glad that through our building process we’ve helped you define your work, and your business. It’s all about Discovery!

    P.S. No photo on this post??? 🙂

  4. I wish your site showcased your photos better….they look out of focus at thumbnail view so I clicked to make them bigger and couldn’t see them full frame. They were partially covered on the bottom. This is on my phone. I really wanted to see the details because your photos are gorgeous! Also it drives me a bit nutty to have to scroll thru so much verbage when I am on a mission to see photos. Might not bother most people but really was frustrating to me.

      Thanks Mary for taking the time to look at my website. I understand your frustration with trying to see my horse photos on such a small screen. The site is designed to be flexible and accommodate any size screens, but certainly looking at art is much more enjoyable when viewed on a larger screen. As far as the “verbage”, this newly designed website is built to gain organic traffic with google. To do this, it was necessary to include a lot of information and descriptions about the photographs and about my services, my galleries and about myself. On a bigger screen you can hide the individual image descriptions in my galleries making it easier for the viewer to decide what image they would like to purchase and enjoy in their home.
      Thanks again for your comments. Just like everything on the internet, the site is always changing-stay tuned!

  5. Jody you have a wonderful eye for capturing the heart and soul of a moment. My granddaughter is autistic and she has from the age of 2, had a passion for horses. Her dr. suggested getting her around horses. She started lessons at just before her 5th birthday. Her first words were spoken on that first horse! Just before her 11th birthday we bought her Scotty. Her gorgeous palomino has worked miracles. She is on the honor roll in school and interacts like most teenagers now. Due to horses where traditional therapies weren’t working. Thank you for shining a light on this area! Much love, blessings and success to you!!

      Hi Pam!
      Thanks so much for the kind words. I really enjoy hearing stories like yours and am happy to know that horses have helped your granddaughter shine. They are amazing animals. I have done some volunteer work in the past with a Prescott area organization called Horses with Hearts. They do a variety of therapeutic healing with horses. Stay tuned for more articles from my website on methods of healing through horses.
      Thanks again,
      Jody
