Time for some C+C on my new Site...

The time has come for me to release my new site and I am in need of all of the Good, Bad and Ugly opinions... So with that, lets see what you all think here....

I don't like flash intros at all, they're so "1999"

Otherwise it looks great

I enjoyed perusing the behind the scenes shots. I like the capture of candid facial expressions - makes you feel in the moment.

I could not get the flash movies to start up, but I usually skip them anyway. The rest of the site was very interesting to me. I like a lot of the shows you shoot. I also think your approach to shooting works very well. What do you do with these shots? Sell them to the studio for promotions, publications, etc? I can't imagine what it must be like to roam around a set just snapping pictures. Sounds like a blast!

Great looking site (once you pass the flash intro). That's a good looking portfolio of work. Surprising you don't have an automobile/cars photography section.

pretty cool... not sure the TV thing mixes well with the photography shutter clicks but it was "snazzy" enough to get my attention.

Great site.

I had no trouble with the flash, using IE on a Vista Ultimate machine. I'd put in the option to skip the intro, but otherwise everything is excellent. There's a good balance between showing the quality of your images and still downloading quickly enough.

Nice photos, but ditch the intro for sure. Makes your site look like it was done 6 years ago.

Thanks...

That flash intro was something my designer was tinkering with... It has a tendency of hanging with slower connections hence the "enter site menu" icon on the lower right. I'm keeping it at the moment as a placeholder as I want something to garner a few seconds of attention. (My typical client gets dozens of portfolios and websites a week to look at)

Question is do I want to go full 80's cheese or follow current trends.
