ze overhaul



I've just finished my portfolio site overhaul at laroquephoto.com. All done in Wordpress 3.0 using a child theme based on Graph Paper Press's Modfolio.

I was admittedly inspired by NY photographer TONE. He shoots pretty cool stuff and I loved the stripped down one column look of his site - also based on a GPP theme. I'm using Fancybox to display the built-in WP galleries and QTranslate (just updated for 3.0) to allow both french and english versions of the posts, even though most of them are pretty thin on words…

I've also designed a new watermark signature (which started appearing in the last posts). I'm playing around with the brand image, trying to differentiate between my more mainstream portrait studio work and everything else. It's hard to find the line though…

But I'm happy with it overall. At the very least I'm rid of Flash  - and all SEO'd out… ;-)
