    Thanks! I still have some minor tweaking, but this is the general idea.

    I think its ok to have the large amount of images, however the card at the moment says to me that you are exclusively a portrait photographer... if this is correct then thats ok. If you plan on doing some wedding, product, property or any other type of commercial photography then you will need to include some examples.

    As far as the type... you need to raise the email and number a little higher, away from the images... at an equal distance to how your title is below the top images.
    I would also change the typeface from the one you use in your title to something more simple, and use lowercase lettering. ;)

    Thanks for the comment! This will be sent to clients in need of headshots and portraits. I will be making a similar card for clients looking for commercial work. I have been battling the typeface as well. I have an unhealthy attraction for Copperplate.

    Just a comment for coherence sake. Can you make image 2 and 5 in the top row, and image 2 in the bottom row a tad brighter. That would make them fall in line more with the rest of the photos.

    /EDIT: Scratch that Leave the bottom row.

    Whoa! Good eye Garbz. That is the first thing I noticed as well. Actually ended up lightening the whole card and things fell into place nicely.

    I disagree -

    You need to show that you specialize in something. For example, I may "specialize" in infant portraiture, but I also do weddings, seniors, families, commercial, graphic design, marketing . . . .
    "specializing" in something gives me a starting point. Because I specialize in infants, I put pictures of infants on my business cards, mailers, etc. If you do a quality job with your specialty - and mention in smaller type, that you also do families, senior . . . . the potential client will see you have talent in photography and use you for their other needs as well!

    Just a thought - from someone with a little bit of marketing experience :)
