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.
