Tour the New Digs!

It’s finally here!

Beyond a general site update and fresher style, check out some new features on oopoomoo:

Projects

Ya gotta do what you love. The power of photography as a means of expression has never been greater now that being your own publisher is so easy thanks to great platforms like WordPress (thank you thank you thank you WordPress!) And we’ve been burstin’ to get started on some new ideas that have been rattling around these ole heads of ours. So…we introduce projects!

What the heck are projects? In a nutshell, projects are creative ideas that unfold over time on the oopoomoo site and conclude with a definitive output. The idea might be an exploration of form as in Stephen’s study of leaves, or a whimsical way of viewing the world as in Samantha’s Pressed Landscapes. Team member-driven, you’ll see new projects starting here on oopoomoo as old ones are completed and shared with you in their final form. For example, Darwin’s first project is an eBook collection of 50 of his favourite images (and the stories behind the shots) taken over his long career as a photographer. From time to time, we’ll share updates and images from the projects on the oopoomoo blog so you can follow along and experience how the project unfolds, gain some insight into how we do the project…and maybe be inspired to create your own project!

Meet the Team

There are people behind the scenes here on oopoomoo who devote their time to making oopoomoo GREAT! Making the website beautiful, ensuring our workshops run seamlessly, or bringing their professional insights to educational products for you…these people can hide no longer! So, meet the team, and watch for exciting future projects coming from the oopoomoo team!

Responsiveness

Apparently, the new site is device-friendly, meaning it should respond to changes in your browser window. We must be the only two people on the planet without a smartphone yet, so we’re waiting to hear from you if this part is as cool as it sounds to us. Try it out in our new photograph galleries!

Logo

Just a minor tweak to the logo…you may see both the old logo with its bounding box and the new one from time to time. We think the new logo really represents what oopoomoo is all about: we emphasize creativity, inspiring others through the sharing of artistic photography, and as always a strong component of high quality, accessible education. With a name like ‘oopoomoo’, sometimes you have to spell things out more clearly.

And We’re Still…

Committed to making the best eBooks and incredible workshops we can! Photography is our passion, and we love working and sharing with people who also nurture a similar spark. It’s a wonderful journey we’re all on. Oh, and of course we would never alter our sense of humour! Yup, expect the same hijinks and tomfoolery we tend to get up to around here.

    You and Darwin are not alone, Samantha. Vin and I don’t have Smartphones either.

    Very nice guys, looking good. I am one who does not have a cell phone, I prefer to surf the internet on a 27in screen, the responsive design does come in handy on an tablet though.

    Hey guys,
    I really like what you’ve done with this place! Not that the old design didn’t look good too. The video on the top of the page is great! It’s always nice to see some of what goes on behind the scenes.
    I’m also really looking forward to seeing the results of your projects. I’ve been trying to focus more on projects lately rather than individual images because I feel that I can tell a better story (or at least more complete one) with a series of images rather than I can with single images.
