A minimal portfolio for a showcase of fashion and beauty photography

The Client

Richard Nolan is a London-based fashion/editorial and beauty photographer. He approached Pilcrow + Pixel seeking a stylish redesign of his online portfolio to showcase his elegant, visually inspiring work.

My experience with Pilcrow + Pixel was excellent right from the start. I was looking to redesign my site and when I asked Vaughan a few questions the answers were quick in coming and detailed. That pattern of communication continued right through to the finished product. The best part of the process was seeing how the initial conversations and ideas for the site turned into a wonderfully pleasing first draft. Even though I was pleased, Vaughan made suggestions to really tighten up the final look and feel of the site. I am really happy with the end result and have had great responses from those who have since been on my new site.

The Project

We designed and built a strikingly minimalist site to showcase Richard’s work, with the firm focus of each page – including both themed and individual model portfolios – being on the images; all other distractions are removed. Photo thumbnails are presented in a visually engaging masonry layout and can be viewed in a clutter-free lightbox.

As is now standard for Pilcrow + Pixel sites, the WordPress interface has been highly customised and streamlined with Advanced Custom Fields to allow Richard to easily add content to his galleries and update pages when necessary.

Service and Support

Richard has subscribed to Pilcrow + Pixel’s Website Care Plan to ensure the continuing support and maintenance of his site. Richard Nolan Photographer is also hosted on our servers.
