    1. Layout & Design - Very nice

    2. Loading Speed - Home Page loaded very quickly. Gallery Pages/ quick enough (It is what it is). You could create thumbnails that link the larger photo, which would make for even faster loading.

    3. General Impressions & Feeling of the website - If I was looking for a photographer, then this site will give me the confidence to get in touch with you. It looks very professional and well presented.

    4. Any other comments & Advice - Yeah finish it..lol

    I'll come and take another look later on. You've made a cracking start.
    Happy Building

    Nice looking site there are one or two things
    First off i am some what confused why you put a html box width:924px;height:2380px on the the index page and pasted at least the page header content. this is on alot of your pages.

    the

    http://www.qtmphotography.co.za/quan...conditions.php
    http://www.qtmphotography.co.za/school-photography.php

    are not showing up, well in my browser anyway. the source code is there which might mean a php misconfiguration.

    Like you say some of the pages do load a bit slow,

    I followed Naval's idea about putting and using php instead of an iframe. So if i need to make changes to the main design etc, I only do it on one page, therefore not wasting time on changing all the links on all the pages.

    Unfortunately, some pages have little content, and other more. So I created 3 page layouts with different page lenghts. Most pages uses the 2380. And I really don't want little content with a lot of white space underneath etc

    Untill I have figured out another way, that have to do for now. But is this a problem when viewing the website?

    Sites looking real good. Got that photographer feel.
    Have a look at the list below as many of your keywords/phrases are not within the text of the actual page page. Also make this bespoke to each individual page you make with correct grammar.

    Home page
    photographer gauteng 0 times Add to your web page text
    photographer pretoria 0 times Add to your web page
    text photographer centurion 0 times Add to your web page text
    wedding photographer 0 times Add to your web page text
    photographic services 0 times Add to your web page text
    photo memories 0 times Add to your web page text
    professional photography 1 time Good, do nothing
    portfolio 8 times Good, do nothing
    studio photography 1 time Good, do nothing
    family portraiture 3 times Good, do nothing
    kobus van dyk 0 times Add to your web page text
    quantum photography 4 times Good, do nothing

    Some of the images in the changing centre area are a little heavy on the kbs for those with slower connections.

    Good luck.

    Thanks for the tip and info!

    One can really get lost trying to design and do SEO at the same time. Your reminder really helped me. I am on on the first 8 pages of google for various search terms.

    It can quite often be worth thinking backwards when making a web page, in that you can choose all your keywords for each page 1st & then incorporate them into your text on that page. Remembering to name the page/title with the most relevant words & main headings with h1 tag using the most relevant keywords & then possibly heading paragraphs with good keywords & h2 tags.

    Wink Photography Website Revamp

    Hi Everyone

    Well, I had to make some changes to the website, but not sure how it looks to other.

    Photographer Pretoria

    Is it loading fast?
    Is the layout easy on the eye and to navigate?
    Overall impressions you get when entering the website?

    Please be honest, can't make the website outstanding if somebody would save their critic.

    Thank you.

    Regards
    Stef

    Hi Stef,

    The pages loaded very quickly for me. The layout looks great! Overall impression is that it is very professional!

    A couple of things I noticed that need fixing:
    Your Birthday Special link is not working.
    A length on a couple of pages - "Sports & Events Photography" and "Architecture Photography"
