Stu spends much of his time outside, capturing nature in his shots. We wanted his site to reflect that and give his work the attention it deserves
How It Happened
Stuart Bicknell is a photographer with a passion for all things nature. He asked White Heat Design to build him a website where he could house his work and offer it for sale in various formats. He had a beautiful collection of images…but nowhere to display them :(
We were happy to take on the project.
Stu came to us with an idea of exactly what he wanted and was happy to just let us get on and build it in our own time and in the way we thought best. Perfect.
From a design aspect, Stu wanted the site to be rustic and natural, but to also be modern enough to keep pace with other well established photography sites. We wanted to let the content speak for itself and kept as much of the design as possible in the background so as no to detract from the work.
For this site to work Stu would need a lot of control over the content. Uploading of photos and creation and editing of all website content were key, so naturally we gave him a content managed system through which he could do all of that. But we didn’t stop there.
At his request, we decided to put together a series of videos explaining how to use his brand spanking new website and its admin area. From the basics of understanding the dashboard, to the ins and outs of editing his beautiful images and tying it all together.
“I have been very impressed with the level of service and communication I have had while dealing with Xavier. His professional attitude and attention to detail has contributed to a fantastic final website.
Xavier listened to my requirements and was able to suggest designs which would work well. Feedback has shown that people are impressed by the design of the website, as it is able to draw your attention to the photography. The finished article is testimony to Xavier’s hard work and design knowledge. The website has surpassed expectations and the technical support received was invaluable in the creation of this beautiful website.”
