For Athlone City Photography we needed to develop a website that would enable customers to view photographs across as many browsers and devices as possible.
A lot of earlier photography websites were built using a technology called Flash from Adobe. It may not be widely known or seldom explained by web designers that Flash is not visible on iPhones, macBooks or iPads.
The customised photo gallery viewer provided for ACP is suitable for viewing on these devices. This is because it uses jquery and not flash.
A shopping cart plugin was provided to cater for a number of products, in the form of gift vouchers. The payment gateway used is Paypal. Paypal is a third party secure payment system used throughout the world and would be familiar to most people who shop on ebay, amazon etc.
A facebook page was setup to promote the gift vouchers and launched at Christmas time. Facebook can be a fantastic way to reach out to customers and has proved to be a great success for Athlone City Photography. Why not like ACP on facebook http://www.facebook.com/athlone.city.photography.weddings.portraits
Search Engine Friendly
As with all the sites we build ACP is built on extremely search engine friendly technology. This also gives this photography site a serious advantage over competitor sites built using technology such as flash.
