A friend of mine, with whom I studied at the time, asked me if I could build him a personal portfolio to showcase his photos. He is a very talented photographer taking photos for clients on weddings and other occasions.
The focus of his website clearly were the photos, so we stuck to a rather simple design in black & white and let the photos speak for themselves. Because he wanted to maintain the website with new content I integrated the Contao CMS so he would be able to do so.
The frontend is written in plain HTML and CSS, using jQuery and Fancybox to display the beautiful photos. The entire site is completely responsive and uses caching to speed up page loading.
