The new site uses the OnSight SiteShell to provide multi-level galleries showcasing Orla's three photographic disciplines, while the system also allows Orla to offer potential clients information about her background, details of her packages and services, and display client feedback and testimonials.

March 13th, 2009New IPPA Website goes live!

The new Irish Professional Photographers' Association (IPPA) website is now live, offering a comprehensive web directory, sample galleries, news updates, and resource facility for both IPPA members and the general public.

Based largely on the existing site, OnSight rebuilt the site from the ground up with an improved codebase.

In doing so, we improved and standardised the look-and-feel and feel of the various sections, ease-of-use and navigation; we also ensured better cross-browser performance, as well as improved scalability for future enhancements and features.

There are also a whole host of new and improved features:

  • improved photographer sample galleries
  • improved photographic exhibition galleries
  • online awards entry submission
  • improved search facilities & results display
  • standardised content display, including Skillnet
  • additional online resources & member facilities

Check it out for yourself!
