David Murphy is a photographer based in Waterford. He does personal, portraiture and commercial photography, with a primary focus on weddings. David wanted a website to promote his pictures in an elegant and stylish way.
Create a new minimalist website which focuses on images and stands out from competitors' sites. Use simple colours, fonts and high quality images. The new website needed a customer portal for clients to be able to access their photos online and choose which ones to order in print form. Create a contact form so visitors can easily get in touch. Provide an online payment facility to enable clients to pay for their images when and where it suits them.
David wanted to have a clean gallery-style website. The requirements were pretty straight forward and led to an accessible, image-focused website. Due to the simplicity of the design and the speed of communication between David and our developers, this website was completed with plenty of time before the due date.
A blog section was integrated, as regularly updated content ranks websites higher on Google. The online customer portal allows clients to log in to view all of their photographs, order prints and arrange framing.
Search engine optimisation is a must-have and we implement things like meta information, popular search phrases and alt tags for images. With the increase in users browsing the web from mobiles and tablets, we made all pages mobile responsive so that they automatically scale to different screen sizes. We do this for all of our website projects as it improves the user experience and helps with SEO.
The result? The website generates many inquiries per month - which means the website is achieving David's initial goals set out in the discovery phase.
The team at Ireland Website Design have done a phenomenal job. I would highly recommend their service.
