Arved Gintenreiter Photography
HTML5, CSS, jQuery, WordPress, & Bootstrap
Arved Gintenreiter is a Venice-based photographer who specialises in international travel and location-based photography, as well as running photography tours and workshops in the heart of Venice.
His website is a key part of his online identity and business: a selling tool for his photography and Venice experiences, a contact point for his clients and tourists, and a place where he can share his passion.
I have been responsible for the development of his latest website, and have been maintaining it for the past five years.
Pairing up with the highly creative Mike Etheridge (Licks Creative) - who designed the preliminary look and feel of the site - I tackled the tech side of things, opting for a from-scratch, responsive, HTML5 build in WordPress. Aside from utilising WordPress' content-management and media-management capabilities, the final build also includes a number of custom PHP/MySQL modules to extend the client's control over the site templates and appearance (in much the same way as is implemented into my Rocknations and in2wrk projects.
The responsive and adaptive aspects of this project were of particular importance, especially for mobile phones; a large portion of Arved's customers were using their hand-held devices to book his tours whilst on holiday (and away from desktop computers). Built on top of a pared-down version of Twitter Bootstrap, the site is completely responsive and demonstrates a significant change in appearance and functionality at various screen dimensions to improve accessibility for these users.
