A couple of weeks ago a guy called Piotr Godek from Poland contacted me after watching my Alone in Tokyo short asking if he could make a new website for me.
So after a few designs, he sent me the below one and he is now contracted to do it. The blog and forum will be completely housed within the website instead of being on .mac and a free forum as they are now. It will happen in two phases. Phase one is the main site and blog and should be ready in 3-4 weeks. Phase two is the forum, slightly trickier but it will be migrated to the new site with the content intact. Users may have to re-register but that is all.
Presentation is as important to me as content and it was important that the look felt like it was me and not either too corporate or too flashy. Simple, clean but contemporary design (well I am simple and occasionally clean) with the same content as before but easier to navigate and captures my personality which I think it does!
Piotr delivered with this design and I can’t wait until it is ready! Check out his company Odd Web Things here: http://oddwebthings.com/en/43.html
One other slight note of interest, with all my Nikon 35mm lenses I finally decided to buy a DSLR. I got the D300. Wow! What a camera. It is quite superb. The picture quality is outstanding. Thoroughly recommended! I had forgotten what using a proper stills camera was like. It is so fast! I also got two new lenses a SIgma 12-24mm and a Nikon 18-200mm. Both very high quality lenses. Both don’t have manual apertures so on the Letus it will be a little bit of a broken match to keep the iris fully open. Man that 12mm is crazy wide with minimal distortion. Wonder if it will work well with the Ultimate. Will keep you posted!
