Cindy Hovind has travelled the world and has the spectacular photography to prove it. For the last several years, she toyed with selling some of her pictures from Guatemala, Copper Canyon (Mexico), Hong Kong, Italy, Nepal, Myanmar (Burma), and more. She even had paid for a website to be developed. However, her web designer abandoned her and left her with a useless, broken, outdated Flash site that never met her expectations. Enter KP Services.
Terra Dolce Photography is a great example of teamwork. Cindy has a good eye for design, is computer savvy, and wants to be able to update many facets of the site herself (primarily, adding her pictures and updating a blog). She found the service, PhotoShelter, that allows her to develop a photo gallery in conjunction with a shopping cart and makes available all her images in nearly any format, size, and media.
I took the reigns from there and customized the static pages and blog portion of her site to reflect the PhotoShelter template that had a nice design already. After some additional ‘back end’ work and communicating with the hosting site’s customer service, the site now flows seamlessly among the pages, blog and gallery.
Cindy had me over to show her how to use the blogging software, and prepare a marketing plan and ideas for her to pursue. Next up: creating a business card that reflects the website and helps develop her ‘corporate’ identity.
