Photography Template

This was a photographer's portfolio that was designed and developed but not yet launched. It was built with the photography in the limelight with minimal controls, giving as much real estate as possible to the photographs. With only three main UI controls, it allows the user to view the current or all photos in a white or black environment. Given the high saturation and high contrast of the photos, each look much more vivid against one of the two backdrops.

about me

First of all, thank you for visiting! My name is Justin Wagner and Lifefroots is my portfolio. Why 'lifefroots' you may ask? Well the bottom line is justinwagner.com was taken. From there I thought it was a play on either the 'fruits of my life' and/or 'my life roots'. I thought this might linger in someone's mind longer than the other options I had. It was fine for the time being and it just stuck over the years. Getting that out of the way, my passion for web and UI design is most likely the reason you are here. If so, that's great, because it's a large part of who I am.

Besides my passion for good design and clean code, some other things influence me(in some form or another) are my of interests/addictions in art, cheese, coffee, bmx, whiskey, wine, roadbikes, my cats, my cats' wardrobe, music, sushi, technology (part-fanboy), history, vintage motorcycles, and zombies.

A few little disclaimer notes: I really hate IE. It is no good. Really. Really, really no good. Also, I always say that a big part of design is subjective, someone might see something as being totally cool and you might see it as terrible. That being said, I hope you found at least something interesting here (if not that's ok. It happens sometimes. I can deal with it, and apologize in wasting your time). If you think of yourself as the be-all-end-all of design, as a favor to me please close this page, I don't have the bandwidth to support your ego.
