Beauty, money, worldwide reputation – these are the words that are hidden behind “high fashion”. The latter seems to be the key point when it goes about fashion photographers. The prestige is the very point that gives them the bread and the butter. Giving their works a wide publicity, they gain so desired fame. Websites play their important role in this process. They use the power of visuals to draw attention of the audience to the artist’s photos.
Revealing the secrets…
The neutral color scheme is widely used not to deflect attention away from the portfolio. Black and white colors are so common for such sites, especially when the photographer is the mature one. While the younger artists can play with all the colors of the rainbow in their sites. You can frequently notice that the intro page contains the slideshow with the most attractive images from the portfolio. The visual part is always impressive with cool sliders with various effects – this certainly catches the attention. Sometimes there are interactive elements within some sites that make the viewers’ interaction with these sites captivating.

So what’s special about these photography folios?
Let’s look at the site of the most known contemporary photographer. This site is one more great creation of his, and effective, stylish are the first epithets that come to mind when you describe it.
The first thing you notice is the slideshow on its intro page. I like the functionality of the page that offers to switch the background image and to refresh the content with the on/off button (placed in the footer). On subpages you can view the content while hovering the image. It hides, and you see the description of the relevant gallery. By clicking it, the gallery opens. The content renews due to the slider that is switched manually.
This is the person who knows everything about appeal. Yeah, the very appeal you’ve just thought about. Such magazines as Vogue, Fringe, Armani, Interview, Harper’s Bazaar and much more are ready to get the fresh photos from this artist.
Nice minimal style and the contrasting design just in two colors create the stylish tone of his website. Elegant black logo in its left part gives you a hint at the artist, whose site you’ve just entered. Photosessions are displayed as galleries where the separate images are switched either automatically, or manually. Clean and clear design that makes the time spent on the site pleasant.
