My first site

    Can I first start by saying that I wish I had discovered this site earlier on. It is awesome.

    OK, my first ever CSS site, please check it out and give comments as I would really appreciate it.

    Any help would really be appreciated regarding layout, css, optimisation etc, to help me improve for my next site. Many thanks.

    Looks good… May I suggest adding a little image next to your links for the animated content? Because of the words used for those headers, it almost looks like its just that… a header. Just a little image of a triangle or whatever you want I think would help.

    My first impression of the site made me think it was for a wedding photographer, even the tag line professional magician didn’t clear it up as I though oh he works magic with the camera.

    The banner needs to look like magic not a wedding IMO

    Not to hijack the thread but it’s not very performant … you’ve got 16 different JS files being downloaded not to mention all the other bits (26 HTTP requests in all). Check out for some tips on how to optimize your performance. If you’re using FF, get the plug-in YSlow! and measure yourself.

    Just took a quick look at it. I liked the website, but I was irritated by the fact that I had to scroll so much every time I load another part of the website (I am now here on my macbook with 1280x800px).
