I don't know if you realise it but the images you've included on your 'aims' section almost certainly constitute breaches of copyright.

I actually had advice on this from a website designer and they aren't because I didn't claim to own them

I shall add a disclaimer though, just to clarify

Some words of advice for you:

1. Your website designer is wrong.

2. A disclaimer will make no difference - it's still breach of copyright.

3. Don't ride roughshod over copyright issues unless you want to alienate photographers that might otherwise be willing to work with you.

Still a copyright breach I'm afraid.

One of the photographer's whose image you've put on your site is a member on here too. I'd advise removing them asap.

I just looked for your disclaimer and can't see it anywhere. I don't think that not claiming ownership of the images means you can use them anyway, if you don't have permission to put them on your site then they shouldn't really be there. I'd be inclined to scrap that page altogether; if you're expecting to use the site for paid work, the things you just 'fancy trying' aren't going to be very important to the photographers potentially booking you. If they're going to pay you, they're going to shoot you in the style they want - they're probably not going to pay you to recreate images you like.

As for the site generally, I don't think you need a slideshow of 6 images on the home page when the same ones are already on your 'my work' page. My connection is pretty fast and the slideshow is a little bit slow-moving; if I were you, I'd just choose your best image and have it as a still on the home page.


Edit: Oops, too slow, lol.
A dry sponge is a happy sponge.
