After years of having my pictures placed on this site I finally decided they need a site of their own. While the site is no where close to being done I feel comfortable sharing it with others now that I have a few photos up on it.
After processing this picture on the left it made me realize that I needed a website for my photography. I get asked over and over by friends and family where they can buy the pictures that I take so I have them in a SmugMug gallery where they can purchase whatever they want. Since our printers were washed away by Hurricane Sandy we are no longer able to print photos at home for now.
Coming up with a domain name was tough since I didn’t want anything like “Vinny O’Hare Photos.com” I had a brainstorming session with Karen Garcia who came up with the name CameraWe.com. I like it because it has an abbreviated “Awesome” in it which if you didn’t know I use in a few of my sites. I also like it because it is a word that probably pisses of my friend Lisa Picarillie who doesn’t like it when words are thrown together and hard to say 🙂 I can hear her now saying is it “Camera We” or “Camera awe”. Yes Lisa I can hear you say Dam you Vinny O’Hare lol.
Choosing a theme for the site was a no-brainier for me since we promote the Expand2Web affiliate program. Since most of my viewers will be local to me it was the choice to make. I love the responsive theme and the sliders which I didn’t exactly get right when it comes to sizing but I did it quickly. I don’t have to worry about what device people are viewing my pictures on. Less coding on my behalf is always a good thing, or I should say outsourcing the coding.
I am not sure if I am removing the pictures section from this site yet, but I am guessing I will when this site gets a makeover.
