Not sure if this the right place to post this ? I have made a website and stuck some of my photos on their would be great if i could get some feedback on my photos and website in general.

(I am not "pro" just a amateur trying to get some opinions)

I like your website it is a simple but effective layout and runs pretty smoothly. I like your pictures aswell! I was thinking of making a website. Maybe using clickpic, it's designed for photographers to make websites. Did you design it yourself or use a web design site?
Camera: Canon 550D with battery grip
Lenses: Canon 24-105mm f/4L, Canon 50mm f1.4, Canon 18-55mm, Tamron 70-300mm,
Accessories: Manfrotto 055XPROB with 808RC4 head, Canon 430ex II speedlite, Lowepro Nova 180AW and Lowepro Pro Runner 450AW

I like your simple design it helps the page load faster.

hence that your a wildlife photographer and seen your personal photo on your website I was wondering what body you were holding on that photo and for wildlife.

Thanks for all the replys :)


I built the site using this site its free. But i have heard of clickpic it think its around £35 a year for one of them ?.

Its my first attempt at making a website and it was very easy to do using that site :).


The photo of me with the camera that was a Pentax K10D which was first DSLR which i brought years ago now i did'nt have it for long because it was a bit too complicated for me lol as at the time i did'nt know much about photography and i still have lots to learn, Most of the photos on the site and all the kenya photos were taken with a Sony A200 DSLR with a 170-500mm Sigma lens.

I don't have a camera at the moment but am looking into getting a super zoom like the Canon SX30 or the Panasonic FZ100.


Thank you mate thats very kind :)
