This weekend I was in Nashville, TN to film the Hope, Faith and Photos for a Cure event. I took the time to meet with my friend Jeremy Cowart. Jeremy’s gotten much acclaim for his meteoric rise as a celebrity photographer (that is, a photographer who photographs celebrities). We were talking shop and he was sharing how since he’s redone his website, he’s gotten every gig that’s come his way. His website used to be a pretty complex, Flash based “work of art” often times hard to navigate. Now it’s a simple html based site with simple left-hand column navigation. In other words, his work is the meat of the site, not the site itself.
Is your website selling your work, or is it selling the work of your web designer? Something to think about.
