Hi,

We are in the process of launching our new website we have been working on for about 6 months. Its a collaboration between an old friend of mine and myself, based around travel photography advice. Really aimed at helping people to maximize their time at a location for getting great photos. Lots of locations, advice, travel info etc. Places to eat we liked etc etc. I will feature articles about microstock too and my findings pros/cons etc after 4 years of doing stock.

Its a 50/50 mix of paid and free so plenty for people to see easily.

https://photobasecamp.com/

Would love some feedback on what people think of the idea.

Enjoy!

Chris

Hi Chris.

I liked your site. But I think it can push away new users, because your site opens soooo long. I have very quich internet, and despite of it, it took about 3 minutes, while the site was opening.

I didn't have any problems with the speed of opening and I live in an out of the way small town in Texas. I was wondering how they plan to make money though. It's a nice site and I wish them success

Hi Chris.

I liked your site. But I think it can push away new users, because your site opens soooo long. I have very quich internet, and despite of it, it took about 3 minutes, while the site was opening.

The main image, with the basecamp newsletter sign up graphic, is 4,896px 2,051px (3.34mb) which may have some bearing on load times. The black and white mountain image is 2,320px 1,401px (no watermark). Why would they need such a massive image in a slide show? Silly and unnecessary.

There's many many validation warnings and code errors as well, probably due to the use of the $49 wordpress theme.

Doing a speed test the page size came in at 10.9mb and got a performance rating of 63 making it faster than a whole 16% of websites.

Could be improved some more.
