I just redesigned my site for ease of updating my portfolio & resume, as well as eliminating extraneous things which were not needed.

wow! Very nice :)
I think it really captures your artistic ability and talent.

Is that White Stripes website in your portfolio the official website? You did a great job on it.

This is definitely a W.O.W. site. My jaw dropped on your site.
I really like the way you use pictures and the fact that they are the focal point of your entire website, as they must use over 90% of you site. Well done. And even if the navigation is integrated into those photo-montage, it is easy to use and recognize.

Your style is refreshing for me. Thanks a lot. Makes a good difference from the tendancies we are actually seeing these days on the entire web.

Once again, well done.

Thanks for the compliments.

I don't know about the WOW factor or not, but I certainly love being able to use my own photography on a main page design...to accomplish that added hidden meaning to me; a time and place in my life that I want to capture a feeling...much more meaningful to me as a designer to use my own shots, than all stock photos like I used to.

Again, thank you for the kind words.

:D

Brilliant! Glad to see you didn't just throw each link into the iframe. Instead there is a different feel for each section! How long did this take you?

I finished the whole site (production and design) in 3 days of nonstop work basically.

The image on the portfolio page is obviously a photo of Rebecca Romijn (which I did not take), the main page and the contact pages are photos I have taken; as well as the photos in my gallery.

Wow, the home page is stunning. Really drew me into the site, I had to go and see what the other pages looked like as well! Every page in the site is very well done, and the site as a whole looks very cohesive. A great design, thats something to be proud of man:)
Design with standards.
