is the project vision

The idea of this website is to showcase the vision of the photographer. Lucas Rene has travelled around all the continents and tries to bring life to the beauty in between. I had the task of creating a platform for him to showcase his art.

are the challanges

  • Have all the focus in the photos

  • Make the user understand the photo selection.

  • Allin with Lucas Renes expectations.

I looked for references

Before building a wireframe, I wanted to understand better how other photographers were presenting their portfolios. With that, I noticed three paths.

One commercial, focusing on a CV kind of format:

Second artistic, showcasing the photos uniquely:

Third middle ground, having an artistic style while still behaving like a website:

We decided to go with the third option.

are the wire frames

The idea is to start with an empty space with no picture, contradicting what one can expect when opening a photographer's portfolio, and then exploding with pictures when passing with the mouse over a project. Intensifying the first impression of a picture.

are my learnings

I have learned to understand the needs of a client, to prepare with research and to guide the vision to a direction.
