    Looks cool, but I think your 'official website' is much too flashed up. The navigation is not very clear and the animation is somewhat cluttered.

    Also, something that I dislike the most in any website - auto playing music, even though I'm able to turn it off, I'd rather use that click and close the website altogether. Just my two cents.

    I don't mind the flash, but have to agree with Andrew Sun's comments about the navigation and music.

    I like your pictures a lot and think they should be shown larger.

    I like the photographs, but as the others said, the navigation took a little work to figure out. Also, spiders and bots see flash pages a blank, and can't follow your links, so you will have a hard time getting ranked on the search engines.

    I like your blog too. Nice photos.

    Have Fun,
    Jeff

    For me the site is all together too confusing. Like the others said, it seems to lack a clear navigation, whether there is one or not. The photo sites are supposed to be easy to navigate, and I found that I got lost the moment I started. I also agree about the music, for me, its the most annoying thing out there on photo sites. I would almost rather it be like a little media player, that I can choose to turn it on, if I felt so inclined. Graphics look cool, but they take away from what appears to be some nice photography. Also it is worthwhile to note that I know NOTHING about web design...lol, so this is just in laymen's terms what worked for me.

    i took a look at tvstudio. elegantly designed website which loaded fairly fast over my less than
    speedy wireless. found myself navigating the content without any trouble. the speaker volume
    on my laptop is turned to zero, so i didn't notice any music. impressive list of clients and outlets.
    i like that photography. nice work.

    I will be looking in to a new web design in September, as I agree with most that the flash isn't great and it loads too slowly. The images should be a tad larger as well.

    Thanks
    Ben;)
