    I am not necessarily new to the theory of design and coding, but really this is my first site. So I am hoping to get some helpful tips for better cross-browser compatibility and just general design. I am also wondering if I get too personal in the about page, would the information I give steer people away?

    I know IE is gonna crap itself, and that my code is unfinished and a bit messy, but i am still working on it.



    Took an eternity to load (using wifi on my iPhone), seems to be very image heavy. I wasn’t able to look any further than the home page as it basically froze my browser. Don’t get me wrong though it’s great for your first site! Wasn’t able to look at the source code unfortunately.


    Hello fellow Canadian!

    Not bad for your first site I’d say, I think you need to add some padding or maybe a center on the text headers eg: Welcome, Latest News, Follow Us…

    Since you’re still working on it, keep up to good work!

    Edit: Forgot to mention, spelling and proper grammar is very important. The ‘big’ clients consider it ‘unprofessional’ to have flawed language on your own site.



    I think you could compress your images a lot – eg your logo is over 150k +, also on your services “photo” page you have 1..5Mb of images!

    Your text to link…

    Yah the image sizes are pretty big. That and making a mobile friendly version will be the first things I fix.


    If the headers have those boxes, add padding to them; it looks a bit messy.
