Welcome to the new swarbrick.com galleries
I've had a website selling photos since 2003. The first version was all hand-rolled HTML and it worked - just about. The workflow was... interesting. Version two was entirely commercial - through theimagefile.com. It was good, but a little limiting and very expensive to run and I reverted to a 'home made' site a few years ago - using the potentially brilliant but no longer supported Gallery 3 PHP-based gallery software. That broke a week or so ago and, with no prospect of getting it fixed any time soon, I bit the bullet and went commercial again.
I've played with trial versions of Zenfolio before but it was all rather impenetrable - but no more. I was up and running in hours with something that bears a passing resemblance to my original site - as well as those in between. I'm very impressed - and I hope you are.
I've also taken the decision not to print my own photos any more. It was a tough decision to take, but it should mean a quicker service for you. I do have the option to bring it all back in house, so please let me know how the experience goes.
This site will be used for 'event' photography - track league, youth and junior racing, car stuff - and there will be some trackcycling photography here. Anything of anyone famous, though, will, in future, be going on to http://alamy.com - which will be the only place you'll be able to buy photos online for commercial use. If you need to use anything here for advertising, sponsors etc - please contact me via the contacts page.
The other thing you won't find here is my 'fun' stuff - landscapes, wildlife, street and aviation photography. The last of those may move here eventually but, in the meantime, you can buy prints of those from my 500px gallery at http://www.guyswarbrick.com
It's going to take a while to get the archive up - some some patience will be required. If there's a specific event you'd like to see added, let me know and I'll see if I can bump it up the queue.
Until then - enjoy!
