bullet 22Danette Romard's photography site
Danette Romard Photography

The Challenge:
Our client, a fine art photographer showcases 24 x 24 wilderness and landscape photography. Her challenge was building greater awareness of her art, but because of the size, unless one attends her Gallery showing, it's very difficult to see her work. She was also receiving lots of telephone calls, but without a web site, was unable to give anyone a preview of her works.

The Solution:
InSite Creations helped develop a virtual gallery that showcases Danette's photography. We concentrated on building a rich presentation of who was behind the photos by utilizing the technology of flash and audio. Our aim was to create a similar feeling for online viewers to get a taste of what it would be like to attend one of Danette's showings. The marketing aspect of the site provides the client the ability to send her online invitations out to her guests. Gallery schedulings will keep all those informed. She is also able to receive feedback and testimonials online.
