Thank you for the encouragement.  Colorado is definitely a great place for landscapes.  I'd love to bring my camera over where you live some day, though.

I feel blessed to live in Scotland, we have some of the most stunning landscapes in the world.

#55627 Beach Art

Posted by iNYONi on 01 June 2018 - 02:24 AM

Having just come back from a weeks holiday on the Isle Of Skye, some of my best shots, were not sweeping landscapes or taken on visits to the usual tourist spots. Instead I found myself on a lonely beach far from the tourist buses and crowds.

As the tide went out, the black sand mixed with the with sand to create stunning shapes. I spent a few hours each night trying to get the best shots, there were a couple of people about, walking dogs so some have footprints on or around them.

I may have to have a couple printed up and framed.

Just back from a week's holiday on Isle of Skye. I noticed on one beach that had a mixture of black and white sand, when the tide was out, water would run down and cut through the sand, leaving these fantastic pictures. I couldn't resist getting a few shots of them.

After looking around a little more, just a few things I've noticed. But before I go on: please don't take my comments the wrong way, I really like your site and your images!


Having said that, I'm not sure if the price tags are really a lot of help in finding new customers. At least for the "professional" sessions you're offering. Customers looking for private photos for themselves, family, friends or maybe for a job application might find this helpful. Companies looking for a set of photos for company profiles and such, will probably rather expect you to give them a quote. But that might as well be a german thing. I don't know.


Anyway, also for the other sections, having the "purchase"-button right there on the page might be a little too direct. I guess, for some potential customers getting pictures taken is a pretty private affair and that they'd like to get to know the photographer a little, before agreeing to step in front of the camera. For them it's not a business type service. All in all, I think I'd remove all the "buy now" features and underline a little your peoples skills and that everybody will be in good hands when you will take their pictures. Again, this might be a german thing.


Another nit picky thing, which might also be a technical issue, in your "professional headshot" section you announce the images as "crystal clear". At least on my system (FullHD 21.5" iMac with OS X 10.11.6 and Safari 11.1) the image you've chosen for this page seems a little soft, almost on the verge of being out of focus. I'm sure that's not the case with the original image, but the version on the page gives off that impression. So, maybe to underline the advertising idea of "crystal clear" a very slightly over sharpened image or a foto with a lot of resolvable details might better match with the text part. Another way is of course to come up with a different text.


Your writing style is drifting a little from business like concise information to a more easy going "just to let you know" kind of tone. So, in my opinion, this needs a little cleaning up to produce a more consistent impression overall.


Again, these are just things coming to my mind. If they're helpful, good. If you chose to ignore them, just as well. It's your site, your business and you'll know what you want. I'm in no position to tell you, you're wrong.

Thanks for the feedback, yeah I've not been happy with the content and layout of the products page. I'll be looking at redesigning this over the next week or so. I just cant seem to figure out how to remove the buying option but leave the image and wording, i think it's the setup of the template i'm using from Squarespace. Yip I also agree on the images chosen for the headshots, I need to get clearer, cleaner images uploaded on there.
It's all a work in progress and the wording is also a source of pain for me. I keep rewriting and changing it. That will also get sorted soon, I hope.....

Over the last year and a half I've been busy trying to get my photography business off the ground, tried re-branding, advertising and just getting nowhere.

On Monday I had a meeting with a professional marketing adviser. He specializes in photographers (He also runs his own photography business). So he knows what he's doing.
Since then we have both been very busy updating my social media and website.

I would be very, very grateful if you could take 5 mins from your day to visit my site www.inyoniimages.com and if you get a chance and have facebook/instgram, please have a look at these also.


Any feedback or ideas you may have would be  great. 

#54677 Portrait Shoot - Jo

A fantastic outdoor portrait session with Model Jo.

I had no plans for this one and thought i'd just see what happened as we went along. Taken in Merchant City area of Glasgow.

#54619 Advertising.

Posted by iNYONi on 23 March 2018 - 02:35 AM

I've been playing around with some ideas on how to market myself and my photography. Thinking about what attracts us to big advertising campaigns, big bold images and catchy tag lines.
The trend these days is for a very minimal start with just an image and a tag line, nothing to say what the product is or even where to go look for whatever it is.
Here's my first "Advert/commercial".

#54346 redesign and increased focus on creating a brand and photography product

Posted by iNYONi on 07 March 2018 - 07:59 AM

Although I've been quiet on this site on and off for the last 2 years, my enthusiasm has returned, with that my desire to further develop my website and hopefully increase the number of new clients. I feel energized and enthused with the prospect of going semi pro in the very near future. i'm looking at getting more exposure within my area and across central Scotland. Fingers crossed my persistence and hard work will pay off.


Any advice, leads, words of wisdom would be welcome.
