Looking for feedback on the sets, image order, etc. It's super basic HTML that I did myself but I think it gets the job done. I also have two new sets in the works but feel like I shouldn't post any photos from them until the set is complete.
The built section is for my design work that I'm still organizing and needing to do some supplementary drawings for.

html wise your site is a mess, wtf are you doing without a stylesheet and loading link styles on 3 seperate occations? and tables instead of divs, are you serious, what is this 2004?
i like your we were lost part 1 series, i'd prune the one shot with the tent, it breaks the mystery
the others are ok too, although the vietnam series reads a lot more like a travel report for me than the others. i can't quite put my finger on it but i'd reconsider the inclusion of some of those streetshots
I have 300gb of bandwith a month, so I'll just move them to my hosting. Cheers for letting me know!
Totally, and considering I took an HTML class in 2006 your date is pretty accurate. I know nothing of coding so this was the best I could come up with. I don't even know what what occasions and divs are...
Thanks for the feedback on the images. I wondered about that tent photo too. I was going for a more documentary style feel for the Vietnam set so if that's how it reads I'm happy.
Thanks dex! North America is full of amazing places. The diversity of landscapes makes for an excellent destination for long term travel.
Most of the landscapes were shot in America. I have dual citizenship and have probably logged 20k+ miles road tripping the US.
Jeeze man. You're really better off spending like $20 on a theme and using wordpress or other CMS. Site isn't responsive, slow loading times, clunky navigation.
Some lovely photos though. Deserves a better displaying website
1. When I open up the first page, I can actually see the pixels on the words photo and built. Fix that, looks very unprofessional
2. I understand that you're going for a minimalist theme but you might try to rethink the whole color scheme. Black on a grey background just doesn't look very appealing and you might also think about adding just a few more graphical elements to not make the site look so stale
3. Your start page should include some text as well. Maybe part of your about, maybe some inspirational quote or something, but just with the picture it's really not enough
4. Make your series into galleries or at the very least make it so that when people click on the picture they get to the next one (seriously, nobody is going to scroll down and look for that small next)
5. Isn't there an option to include your instagram feed on your site? If so, do so
6. Remove the (at) and (dot] from your mail address wtf. Makes it annoying to copy.
But as others said, great pictures, especially the somewhere series. They deserve to be displayed better
Also what exactly do you plan on putting up in the build section?
Thanks for the feedback! I chose grey because some of my photos are rather dark and on a white background they would appear even darker. I thought it was a good middle ground but can see how it would turn some people off. Last time I had a website I had a name and people complained and said I should just use my name. Honestly I have no idea what else I could use. I don't have a company or anything...
I'll look into wordpress. Honestly web design is totally over my head (obviously) but everyone here is saying in unison the site needs work so I'll get on it. Thanks for the honest feedback!
Hey thanks a lot for the critique! I agree with a lot of what you are saying and it comes down to me not knowing how to code for it properly (like clicking the images to go forward/backward). I'm going to look into wordpress and see what I can come up with. Hopefully then I can tackle some of the other issues with the site aesthetics that you and others have pointed out. I included a link to my instagram in my About section.
As for the built section I studied architecture and for 18 months worked a design/buildesque gig at my previous job and was going to include some of those projects in addition to some personal projects I've done in my spare time. Pic related (process shot).
