Default super cool photographer website

the most interactive photographers website I have ever seen... more importantly, I read he earns $100,000USD more than usual since launching his new site last year... presentation matters!

that's just because people are so used to looking at cookie cutter photography websites and have started to think that is the only way... where all the sites seem to blend into one and other with the typical categories of "portfolio" "bio" "singles" blah blah blah blah.

I must say the cinematics in his site are very innovative and very interesting, but the content is poor unless I have missed something somewhere because after a while it gets quite innerving to navigate like it was in in his own things he hadn't even sorted out (or his private trash bin?).
I guess mixing some of his cinematics ideas with a more "classical" content would provide the perfect photo gallery.. imagine for instance this personnal photo sie (which I like pretty much) with his dynamics.

Is he a relative of yours, Narayan? (I read the same family name)

No, not a relative. I am not a huge fan of his work, but at least he is getting good work... doing assignments for Time is nothing to sneeze at. I like the site only for the use of animation and think it is innovative just for that. I too got tired of the navigation but going through just once will make someone remember it... which is important... especially since everyone else's site looks the same.

I like that personal site, it is clever and I like the drawings. I don't like that everything is html... using flash with that design would be awesome.

Itís not only the layout; the content is worthless. He used flash; so what?
Where is the photographic value of the website?
I donít know, maybe itís only me that Iím stupid and I donít understand but when I look at those pictures I donít see their meaning. As I said, they worth nothing for me.
I could provide really good photography websites addresses for you, with discussions and all one would need to become a good photographer but maybe they look too ďclassicĒÖ

i'm not talking about the photos, but rather the innovative way of presenting work... which pays off. And the typical look is not just classic, it is cliche and overdone.
