When designing the website, Maya had a requirement – she wanted me to make the viewer feel like he is there – in the middle of this mountain scenery. For me, the natural way to make this happen was to present each photo on full screen, keeping as minimal the navigation and design elements over it as I can.
As the website’s photo database supposed to grow through the years I had to think forward with a vision of what’s going to happen when the image numbers increase dramatically. So, I’ve made a highly flexible and customisable filtration for this big image DB which today allows Maya to create or remove categories and add custom filters, all by herself.
Later, in a conversation was born an idea to enable the option for users to order their favourite images printed on canvas, posters, postcard, etc. and for agencies to buy images in big pixel resolutions for various advertising purposes.
