Well done, its a nice site! Works well on the latest Opera as well.

It's a bit slow to load images sometimes.

Nice site and works well. You might want to change the "unlimited" times to being 1 day. Unlimited sounds like you are prepared to spend weeks with someone getting the right shot for a very low fee. I understand you want to have the freedom to get the client relaxed but $100 is not going to cover costs for you to get to 2 locations and produce 50 images. Even if you spent just 1 minute cropping and post processing all of the images you are looking at close to an hours work and that doesn't even take into account the storage costs (disk space).

point taken. I kept the flat rate but put in approximate duration for each shoot.

Trying penetrate the market with some temporarily low rates. Think the prices are too low?

There we go! I fixed the header/title issue on IE just now. That looks a lot better.

I'm no professional web developer to say the least, so I just learned that IE only supports .eot fonts as opposed to .ttf -- Sheesh, why can't Microsoft conform?! :roll:
