August Ryan Photography

WordPress / Photoshelter integration and full customization for Las Vegas based photographer August Ryan.

The Challenge

August is what I like to call the perfect client. His only request was that his website would be awesome. I took it upon myself to create a Portfolio and Presentation website that would capture his energy, joy for life and most importantly, his passion for cars and the great things in life.

His WordPress website would have to be integrated with Photoshelter. This way he would have a great place for storing his work and it would also act as a selling hub for his prints.

The Solution

For this project I used the theme PhotoMe. It’s a premium theme used especially for photographers and has tons of features and customization options.

I used big, fullscreen photos from August’s selection together with catchy phrases to emphasize his joy for photography but also draw out his professional working style. I fully customized the Photoshelter section in order to create a seamless experience throughout the site and encourage visitors to buy his amazing prints.


Custom Full Screen Grid Portfolio

Big images create a big visual impact. I consider this the best solution for creating a Portfolio page.


Full Screen Portfolio Gallery

A Masonry Grid is always a great way of displaying an Image Gallery.

All Photoshelter pages are fully customized and bring out the amazing colors and shapes in August's photos.
