Web Design

Much like fashion, web design is constantly changing with trends and fads coming and going. When it comes to creating a website that will make a professional impression, I keep everything up to date and on trend. All sites are professional-looking on mobile devices.



Lots of wonderful things happen around us all the time; being able to see is easy, but being able to capture that very moment is probably the hardest part. A good photo comprise of many things, not only you must hit the shutter at the right time and moment, the perspective, composition and color coordination plays a big role too. Food photopraphy is my specialty. Food doesn’t keep it’s appetizing looks for long so as a photographer I am well prepared and able to shoot quickly after it’s been cooked before it melts, collapses, wilts and/or changes color.

Most of us spend hours online everyday, that’s just the nature of being a web designer. However, there’s a whole world of inspiration around us that we tend to forget which are excellent sources that can often be translated into creativity online. I have been busy developing ways to create and sell Ecookbooks. My first release is here Create your own cookbook online AND the salmon Ecookbook. Imminent release to be announced . .
