Perou is a veritable powerhouse of a photographer and a dynamic workaholic in many ways. We've worked with him since 1999 and in that time, we've added, chopped and changed his site, hosting it all the way and always with his involvement.
The first incarnation was a simple affair. We set up a framework and tutored him in how to update it so he bought a copy of Dreamweaver and went to work. In a short space of time he had added well over 2000 photos to the site and invariably it became quite difficult to manage. We also added a guestbook and a daily blog to it which also became very popular.
It became evident that with any new version of the site, we'd need to start from scratch as the old one had become a bit of a handful. We licensed a copy of LightBoxPhoto, a comprehensive photo gallery database system, to handle his expanding gallery and he quickly boosted his photo total to 6000+. His Flash portfolio was outsourced to a friend and a Perou aficionado built a new daily photo blog. We then added a phpBB forum to complete the whole package.
It's a fantastic body of work and we follow his activities on his blog daily as well as check out his latest work in the gallery.
