I'd like to make this official: as of this moment, my new photography website, Dave Chen's Photos, is online!
It's been a long journey to get to this point. I've spent the past year amassing thousands upon thousands of photographs from a wide variety of events and situations. I've studied with master photographer Jerry Ghionis and read up on the techniques of flash photographer David Hobby. My hope is that the new site will reflect the breadth and quality of my work through an elegant, simple, classy design.
Shortly, I'll be writing a blog post about the two photo website services I've tried this year: 4ormat and Bigfolio (which hosts the current version of the site). I know many of us dislike flash but there are reasons why I chose to use a service that only hosts flash websites. I will get into those later, but iPad and iPhone users are not left out, as there's a fully functional mobile version of the site as well.
In the meantime, check out the new site! Put it through its paces. And ask yourself: would you hire this photographer if he was local? Why or why not? Your answers and feedback are welcome in the comments below.
