It’s been a long time in the planning, and even a longer time coming, but the website is finally here!
I wouldn’t say the site is completely finished, and there are still components yet to come and content to be properly filled out. However, today marks a significant day in not only the birth of this website, but the birth of myself too. Thats right, May 27th is my birthday! I’ve been working on this site for a long time now and there was no better way to bring in a new era for Kotchenography than to reward myself with the new site going live, it totally is one of the best presents I’ve ever received! Metaphorically speaking, I hope this website grows as I do, and more and more features will come about as time passes.
Kotchenography began as a university project back in 2011. It was established as a label to brand myself by and to eventually form into my own personal photography and graphics design business. It was off to a slow start, and was almost something that was swept completely under the rug. However the fire still burned deep inside my heart to get this up and running to challenge myself to make a living off what I love doing best. Here is where it has come to today.
The website was built with my own two hands. I starting from a WordPress template and customised and coded each page to my desire. I am a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to these kinds of things, but I couldn’t be happier with the result. This site has taken a lot of dedication to get up and running, and more importantly, a lot of organising, learning and collating photographs.
The main aim of this website is to be a hub for my photography, writing, graphics design, video and anything else creative that I come up with. It is a way of getting myself out there, and having a home base for my work, clients and fans.
I know kotchenography.com may still be a little messy, however in due time things will get ironed out, new features will come, and the website will be improved. I will dedicate time to it each day so it grows to the finished product I have in mind.
What to expect in the near future?
Kotchenography.com is going to have a prints store for all my photographs. You will be able to purchase any one of my images and have it printed onto an array of mediums, or license them digitally. You will be able to order prints from anywhere in the world and have them delivered to your door. Keep an eye out for a few other pages that will come up shortly, I will announce them here on my blog as they come up.
In the mean time, it is my birthday, so time to drop the work for just a day and enjoy myself!
