As many of you know I put out the request for you to send in your Squarespace sites for critiques. I ended up getting 1000’s of them in so it’s going to take me months to get to them all. Please please please understand it takes a good 5 minutes or more to review and critique someones site.

In this case I take a look at Mathews squarespace site. I found that it was clean right off the bat with nice images and only a few galleries. One recommendation I had was to add one of the new cover pages that Squarespace 7 allows you to use. This way people come to your site and see your best work huge across the screen before they enter.

One thing I noticed at the bottom of the page is that he listed his facebook address, phone number and email address. But Squarespace has a simple option that allows you to place social buttons on the page. I went ahead and showed this is in action so you can see how easy it is to implement.

All and all it was a very clean site, I wish I could have enlarged the images more as I feel the images especially the commercial ones deserve to be larger.

Here is your FREE Tutorial User’s Guide for the Canon 7D Mark II. What you’ll find in this 30 min long video is an explanation of what every button does as well as what setting in the menu I recommend. This is a very powerful camera with a ton of features so I make sure to run down and explain as many of the important features as possible.

The one thing I can not stress enough is the importance of just getting out and shooting. One of the only ways you will become a better photographer is to GET OUT AND SHOOT. Now I recommend watching this FREE GUIDE first, then going out to explore and capture the world in images.
