What types of services do you offer?

My areas of specialization include graphics and Web-based design, as well as digital photography. For a more comprehensive description, please refer to the my About > Services page.

Can I order prints, or license your photographs?

Yes. Prices vary based on print size, volume, and shipping; so please contact me for details.

How, and with what tools, did you create this site?

I used Adobe Photoshop  to come up with the design of the site. This allowed me to experiment with the layout, design elements, colour, etc.

Once I was happy with the design, I used PSPad  (a simple text editor) and Adobe Homesite  (a simple HTML editor) to create the site. All (X)HTML, CSS and Javascript were done "by hand".

Other useful tools used during the design process included Adobe Kuler , and Highslide JS . References included: DHTML, The Definitive Reference , CSS Pocket Reference , and HTML Pocket Reference .

What thumbnail viewer are you using? Is it Flash-based?

I'm using Highslide JS , a free (for non-commercial use), super-slick viewer by Torstein Hønsi. Highslide JS is highly customizable, and easy to install/integrate. And no, it's not Flash-based; it uses standard Javascript, HTML, and CSS.
