Due to each profile having a different number of images and content, we built the site so that each individual gallery can be displayed at a specified size or allowed to switch randomly between sizes giving the pages lots of flexibility. Page speed was also at the forefront of our minds as the website is very image heavy, we tackled this by lazy loading content where possible.
Content – always a big talking point on any project – was a dream to work with here. Minimal copy, but unlimited amazing photography. We also developed the idea of the ‘featured’ section, where Hamish can show a ‘behind-the-scenes’ take on his shoots. Giving the user an insight into his working practices, and the odd trick of the trade when working with A-list subjects.
We’ve loved this project. It’s not every day we’re deciding how best to showcase portraits of Samuel L Jackson, Ricky Gervais, Luis Figo or any other of the notable figures that can be found throughout Hamish’s of work.
