Just launched a new website I put together with a good friend of mine. Our toughts was to keep it simple to let the images and movies speak as much as possible. What do you think about it. I'm eager to hear, bad and good.

Nice images and layout, but you need a serious rewrite of your bio. There are ways to infuse it with your personal vibe, but as it stands it's awkward, amateurish and filled with grammatical errors. No offense intended, you seem like you can deliver the results, just have a professional work with you on on the written content.

Btw, it loads quick and looks nice on an iPhone...

Ditto on the Bio. Needs a re-write...

Same as the others...just get that bio re-written. On the other hand, absolutely fantastic work! I really enjoy your photography style, and the video is great as well. Work with the wording on your website a little bit, but the content is solid!

I would order your climbing photos from strongest to weakest from the top of the page to the bottom. A lot of people will only look at a few near the top and you want them to be "wowed." Make the strongest ones bigger and the weaker ones smaller, filling in the gaps. The sunset silhouette steep climber should be big because it's great, and the flat light sport climbers should be small because they don't pop like sunset colors. Nice work, looks good on an iPad.
