Going through the process of thinking about how a contact page should work. This is what I achieved after about an hour or so in Photoshop today.
I initially wanted the contact details to be very simple and appear without headers, but also wanted to find a way of making it obvious that one of the links goes to another website (a stock library). However I didn’t want to write a load of details about all that (and by default have that other link somewhere else on the page), therefore I opted for headers to make the information clearer as a list. As of yet I’m undecided as to whether this is the way I want the page to work- but you have to start somewhere.
I’m also undecided about having an extra ‘About’ page. It’s a nice thing to do, I notice a lot of professional photographers have it nowadays on their websites. Yet I’ve also got a bit of an ‘old school’ mentality- the actual images should do the work for you. Having said that, some details about yourself adds a human dimension; it gives clients a better picture about who they are going to deal with. I’m undecided right now. I may also lose that particular ‘logo’ image of me and replace it with something else. It was a bit of fun when I made it a few years ago, but I’m slightly unsure about using it professionally on a broader basis.
