Carly Fenn Photography

Rated 4.0 out of 5

I found Ben very helpful and he was excellent at explaining how things would work to me in ways that weren’t too technical. He was able to create a website that covers my needs and is easy for me to update with new photos and galleries. I’ve recommended his services to others and I’m very happy with the final website. Ben was always happy to explain things so I could understand them and he was always patient when I forgot things.

Project Summary

A passionate Farnham-based photographer, Carly Fenn, approached us with a vision: a responsive website to exhibit her photography projects. Having previously built a site for her in 2014, I embarked on a journey to revamp and modernize her online portfolio, ensuring it met today’s web standards and allowed her to manage her content easily.

Carly Fenn Photography captures the essence of moments through the lens. While Carly’s passion for photography never waned, a long-term illness temporarily halted her endeavours. Now rejuvenated and with many captivating photos, she wanted to share her photography with her website. I chose WordPress because of its intuitive admin interface and extensibility with plugins and custom development options.

Challenges and Limitations

The primary challenge was reconciling the differences between 2014 and the present web development standards. Given the rapid evolution of web technologies, ensuring the new site was not just an upgrade but a complete transformation to meet current best practices was imperative.
