Small business website of the week: Christopher Aldous

screen-shot-2016-10-27-at-12-30-09Background

Christopher Aldous is a professional photographer based in Sussex. He specialises in wedding photography but travels all over the world covering all types of photography including children, pets and maternity. Chris wanted a website that was simple and for his images to be the focal point.

Solution

To achieve the simplicity of the site, we chose black and white to direct all focus on the images themselves and their colours. The home page was reduced to only having two high quality images that would draw the client in, which also contributed to the sites professional feel. We chose a soft theme to run throughout the site as it went hand in hand with the type of photography. Each page has a very soft whitewashed background image that provides the site with depth and a feeling of warmth. The portfolio was the most important focal point of the site and we chose to add a slider of the best images on each gallery to provide the client with a representation of what Chris can do.

Reaction

The client was very happy with his professional website and it’s clean, simple layout. He was impressed by the fluidity of the content and design as well as the websites ability to work on all devices.
