There has been an immeasurable sense of relief here after having managed to create and publish the new www.baxterbradford.com website. I hope that you have had a look round to see the things that might be of interest to you.
Having moved to Exmouth last January and not really produced many photographs of Devon locations prior to this, the old website didn’t have provision for Devon galleries. It was also desperately out of date because adding new images was more hassle than I’d have preferred… Enough history, hopefully amends have been made and given the ease with which I can now share new pictures, I have no excuses.
Another reason for making the change was being able to add the provision for e-commerce so that customers can purchase prints and workshops directly from the website using secure Credit Card or PayPal. I hope this is straightforward, there is a £ logo on the thumbnails which brings up a pop up window, if an image is filling the page, then the ‘Buy Print’ button is on the bottom right hand side of the screen.
Viewing on a mobile phone or tablet ought to be far more intuitive and easier to look at a range of pictures and navigate. If not, please let me know so that I can remedy the matter.
I’m informed by the website management software that there are over 1400 photographs on the site, so hopefully there’s at least one that you’ll enjoy viewing amongst them. This is about 15% of those I have in my library, so if you have a particular location in mind that doesn’t appear here as you’d prefer, send me an email and I’ll see what else I have. This approach is also best if you are looking to use my scenic photos commercially to promote your company. Of course I love the creative challenge of shooting bespoke new pictures on commission to meet a brief.
An early start on Tuesday saw me standing on the famous Cobb at Lyme Regis having seen a favourable forecast. Arriving in the dark, I could see another photographer already in position. He was a really good chap to talk to & had been there since 0430 shooting Astro images. The forecast high level cloud didn't materialise as I'd expected so the pictures lack the impact I'd sought. Looking behind my viewpoint I was treated to what might have been, with the cloud front wonderfully glowing pink overland. It was a bit late & had missed the bus....
