This should really be an article in Medium. Alas … we’ve been working too hard, and one thing I have learnt from the coolest photographer I know, you never stop working hard, even when you are Janette Beckman.
demondmeek.com is a true collaboration. I love Demond’s work. I built his last site. Demond designed this current site with my input, I built it. It’s a great site. Demond’s work is strong, exciting, rich and compassionate.
Demond had been shooting some derelict houses in a particular area of St Louis as an Instagram project. We replicated his original site, with some amendments, to produce slumbeautifulstl.com to give the Instagram images more visual impact.
We developed a new website for Eric based on the success of the original site design. We kept the dark background and cinematic feel of the original with redesigned navigation and captioning to make the site more usable.
The iPad doesn’t run Flash and search engines don’t index Flash. That seems to be the thinking behind the voice of ‘No Flash design’ for photography websites. It seems like a fairly clear cut case. But it’s not.
