Scott Witter

Auckland (v.RC2a)

Photographers

Scott is an emerging photographer specializing in commercial, editorial, and fashion photography. While pursuing a degree in graphic design, he was required to take a class in photography and subsequently found his true career path. Having been a photo assistant for many years, Scott has now taken his knowledge and skills and created a style that he has made his own. His clients hire him based on his creative vision and the distinctive look and feel of his images. When not shooting, Scott follows his passion of traveling abroad with wife Vanessa.

Foliolink has made marketing my web site remarkably easy. Hiring designers in the past did not allow me complete control as I have with Foliolink. Custom designing is a great benefit and uploading images is a snap. I am constantly shooting promos, so getting photos up on the site fast is a major plus. One of my favorite features is the site compatibility with the iPhone. My clients love it and it is great fun just to show off.

ERIN RACHEL HUDAK

Los Angeles

Artists

Erin Rachel Hudak is a painter, photographer and installation artist. Her work explores the polarities of grief and joy, grit and beauty, love and loss. She covers and uncovers frantic messages when painting like an archaeologist who discovers and then reburies a treasure. Hudak embraces these discoveries, however and often turns them into numerous works such as performances or installations using words, quips and objects to represent the themes of death and rebirth, freedom and entrapment. Hudak sees her work as a public diary, by revealing tender but powerful feelings to her viewer she allows you to journey with her through the pain and exultation of life. She attended Allegheny College and received her BFA at the Savannah College of Art and Design. She was recently awarded a fellowship from the Vermont Studio Center where she was a resident for May 2006. She currently lives and works in her studio in Brooklyn NY.

Folio Link was the perfect solution to my web site needs. I am very design conscious and did not like the other self made web sites that I had seen. Then I found Folio Link and I was so impressed by the choices and the designs I was given plus they are very affordable. While I learned how to use the Folio Link system everyone at Folio Link was so helpful and patient on the phone and e-mail every time I had questions. Now it is so easy and I am able to update my web site constantly and change whatever I want, which I love! I have had so many compliments on my web site and it's thanks to Folio Link!

Christopher Dodds

Auckland (v.RC2a)

Photographers

I first discovered my love of nature at a young age during family camping trips in the great Canadian outdoors after moving to Canada from England. It was with my first camera that I realized I could freeze fleeting glimpses of birds, and study every detail of their intricate beauty. Always wanting to produce better, more artistic images, I soon realized that an intimate knowledge of my subject and it's behavior played a key role. Years later, I am a free-lance nature photographer and more passionate than ever about capturing images of birds in a technically perfect, artistic manner. My usual gear includes: Canon 1DS mark II and Canon 1D mark II digital camera bodies and Canon 500 F4 IS, 300mm F2.8 IS and 70-200mm F2.8 IS Lenses. Today, Chris travels the world and teaches bird photography workshops to a growing clientele. His images are collected and published regularly.

Wow, from nothing to a website that draws rave reviews in less than 24 hours. I just couldn't imagine getting one more compliment without thanking the FolioLink team for such a pleasant introduction to "building" a web site. I've been wanting a web presence for so long, but have been unable to invest the time to try to design and build my own site. Although I'm impressed with the choice of easy to use templates, it's the SERVICE that impresses me the most. Once I looked at all of the templates, it was off to the races to upload images into my different galleries. I highly recommend FolioLink for a professional and cost effective web site. Thank you FolioLink!!

Jeremy Mayer

Auckland (v.RC2a)

Artists

Jeremy Mayer disassembles typewriters and then reassembles them into full-scale human figures. He does not solder, weld, or glue these assemblages together- the process is entirely cold assembly. He thinks of the typewriter as ....a product of nature- it was designed by minds immersed in nature around them, and mimicked the curves, geometry, and physical processes abounding in nature. Though it is cold metal created by human hands, the typewriter is just as much a natural material as stone or wood......He lives and works in Tahoe City, CA

I can not imagine maintaining a website that is any easier to customize, and search engine optimization is effortless. Any questions I had about the site were quickly and expertly addressed by the friendly and patient staff at FolioLink. There are few things in my life that are unquestionably worth the money I spend, and my Foliolink site has been one of them.

Joel Grimes

Auckland (v.RC2a)

Photographers

The one thing that I have try to do as a commercial adverting photographer, is to present and promote myself first and foremost as an artist. I want the art director hiring me to get a sense that I am more interested in the process of creating a remarkable image than collecting a paycheck. I have little interest in the image associated with being a photographer, my passion lies in the image that can put in a frame and hung on the wall.

When it come to building web sites, I have gone through the whole spectrum of hiring web designers, designing and building my own, to what I now believe is the future for creative artist like me; the drag and drop. Once a year I would lock myself in my office for three weeks and labor over building a site. With FolioLink, I can create a custom looking site in a matter of hours. The number of design templates and creative options are unprecedented. Now the hardest part about building a web site come down to choosing my images.

Adam Ewing

Auckland (v.RC2a)

Photographers

Adam Ewing is a photographer specializing in portraiture and automotive photography for advertising and editorial usage. After graduating from Virginia Commonwealth University in 1998 with a degree in Communication Arts and Design, he spent the next few years assisting both locally and nationally known photographers. Opening his own studio in 2006, and started shooting for clients that include Anthem, B.F. Goodrich, Classified Moto, Sirius, Walmart, among others. He currently lives in Richmond, Virginia with his wife.

I have used the Foliolink service for my website for the past few years. I love the adaptability of their templates, a back-end that is very easy to use, and the fact I can make any changes easily, anytime I choose. The staff has always been very helpful, and quick to respond to any requests I have had.

Helene Apuzzo

Twin Cities (Beta 1)

Photographers

Born and raised in Connecticut where as a child I learned the basics of photography with a brownie camera and a Kodak darkroom kit - I remember the experience as being simple yet intriguing and the interest has always stayed with me - In later years I moved to Los Angeles where I studied Art and Architecture at UCLA and at Otis Parsons School of Design I studied painting and photography - my fine art photography has been featured in many exhibitions and in private collections.

The FolioLink interface is simple to use - I like the fact that I can easily update and rotate my photography portfolios myself - I don't have to go and find someone who knows about websites to do it for me - and when I need it I can rely upon tech support which is excellent- I also like that there are attractive templates to choose from and going from one to another is automatic and easy - feedback has been that my website looks clean and uncluttered and easy to navigate and looks awesome!

Treleven Photography

Auckland (v.RC2a)

Photographers

Classic composition, alternative techniques and flawless execution are the hallmarks of Joe Treleven's images of people and their environments. Each image exudes a timeless beauty, whether it is of a CEO, a coal yard worker, or a Mongolian nomad. Treleven shoots wherever his design, advertising or corporate clients need him: in the studio or on location, nationally or internationally. Committed to excellence, Treleven shoots the best format for the assignment, delivers top-notch final files, and offers responsive, resourceful production services. Along the way, he has earned recognition from Communication Arts magazine, Polaroid Corporation, AIGA, AR100 and others.

I thoroughly researched website services, and FolioLink was the standout choice. They offer the widest variety of well-designed templates, the ability to customize your own site, and great customer service all at a competitive price.

nicholas sorlien

Ottawa

Artists

I am concerned about how my work participates in the cultures I am a part of and what meaning and use it has relative to these cultures. Because of the innate lack of boundaries in art and the art-making process, I believe that art can play an active role outside of the gallery as a direct participant in culture. I see art as not only passively waiting to be perceived, but also interacting, surprising, and appearing in the public domain outside of the structures designed to contain it. My work, and the research I do around it, is constantly trying to make these connections between power and the struggles for it; between definition and the lack thereof; between the boundaries of ideals and anarchy; between chaos and order. Therefore, I find myself working as much outside of structures as within them; outside a particular medium, as within it; manifesting as installation work, but also as video, graphs and group activities. When I am asked what kind of art I make, I answer that my work is conceptually driven, manifesting in whatever medium most effectively gets the idea across to the audience experiencing the work. Artist portrait by Jon Haynes.

I have found Foliolink to have impeccable service. When I call they call me back. When I need assistance they provide it via the telephone in direct conversation, or in immediate responses to email inquiries I have made. I was looking at other sites which were a bit cheaper, but found that I could not get a returned phone call after numerous tries. I have used Foliolink for almost 7 years now and am extremely satisfied with the customer service, design and functionality of the various site designs I have used. They are the best value that I have been able to find. Thanks much Foliolink crew!

Gunther Maier

Auckland (v.RC2a)

Photographers

Ever since Gunther got his first Kodak Intamatic camera in Germany he was hooked on taking pictures. Completing a 3 years apprenticeship as a photographer did not stop him either. Continuing his education in the field of advertising and design made it even worse. Moving to New York City and working for some bigger and smaller creative ad agencies made him a mad man.So much that he co-founded his own ad agency in Philadelphia with 3 other cazy ad guys. Now this mad man is behind the camera. Roadhouse Pictures is a small independant Studio in Santa Fe, New Mexico. We love to communicate and tell stories with our images. If our images don't evoke a emotion, we have failed.

I have looked at many website solutions, but none does what FolioLink is offering: Clean designs, easy customization, fast updates and very cost effective. I need to spend time on my images and not on maintaining my website. FolioLink is the only tool any photographer should consider if he or she is serious about their work. The staff is not only great to work with but also fast in giving you the answers if you don't find them online.

christopher veeneman

Los Angeles

Artists

I studied design in Paris and have worked as an interior, furniture and graphics designer. I started painting rather recently and have devoted a great deal of time to it over the past 2 years. My work is mostly oil on canvases or other surfaces. I would characterize my art as abstract landscapes. I am starting to explore other media such as layering painted and inked plexiglass, using the cast shadows to create 3d effects.

I needed to create a new site for my artwork and didn't want hire someone to create one for me. Of all the ones I looked at on the web, FolioLink seemed to be the best and well worth the price. I think portfolios look great on them, very professional and clean. I use the Los Angeles template and especially love that you can load very large images and that they expand and decrease with the window size. In addition, the site changes for ipad and iphone which is an added bonus. I also found the staff to be very helpful and efficient whenever I had a question. I am proud to show my site to potential customers and curators....I highly recommend FolioLink.

Kristin Taylor

Santiago

Photographers

I always told myself I would never get a 9-5 job and sit in a cubicle all day. Now I am a graphic artist and find it hard to peel myself off of the computer and call it a night. Having the opportunity to work for myself and get lost in my imagination is a true blessing. Whether I am taking photography to the next level or piecing together a creative composite, I find each and every project a rewarding experience and look forward to the next adventure

In this digital age there is no room in the commercial industry for amateur presentation. My website is a reflection of my work, and ultimately me. Foliolink has provided my business with a powerful marketing tool that enables the design flexibility necessary to display various sets of skills. I recommend Foliolink to every artist out there looking for professional web design that compliments every style.

Foliolink is simply one of the best artist website service providers I have had the pleasure of working with. I have been using Foliolink for over 7 years and continue to be impressed in equal measure by their excellent customer support and the quality of the template designs. I currently use the San Francisco template and find it perfect for displaying my art work. As my business has grown over the years so too has my Foliolink website to the extent that it is now a comprehensive, professional art website that allows me integrate my art portfolios, blogs, social media, videos, Painting workshops and shopping cart. It is a critical part of my business and marketing strategy and I never have any hesitation in recommending it to anyone looking for an easy to use, high quality, well managed website.

Chris Hendrickson Photography Saskatoon Photographer

SOFIA II

Photographers

Chris first picked up a camera to document life and work in isolated areas of Canada's North. Places where immense, stark landscapes were highlighted by changing 24 hour light. Attempting to understand his place amidst the imposing natural forces soon drove his motivation to photograph. He became focused on the interactions between himself, others, animals, plants, climate, and land. Chris remains inspired by the organic forces in photography as he works on providing imagery for stock, wedding, and commercial clients. He currently lives in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada in one of the sunniest places in the country.

Foliolink offers professional quality sites with contemporary styles and great customer support! Website templates allow for significant customization while remaining user friendly. My website was up fast and I have complete control to change features anytime. Having this website has been invaluable to my business.

Jovan Karlo Villalba

Nairobi II

Artists

My interest is in the possibilities of the imagination. Through my art, I aim to stimulate one's vision and curiosity to create a gratifying and thought provoking experience. I think of my recent works as incomplete puzzle segments that provide a glimpse of pictorial worlds that are free to inhabit. Jovan Villalba is an artist living and working in NYC. Soon after graduating from The Cooper Union School of Art in 1999, he acquired a studio space in Chelsea, NYC. Since then he has been exhibiting his art in galleries throughout the United States.

Heidi Lewis Coleman

London

Artists

Heidi Lewis Coleman is a Connecticut artist, but she was born and raised in Yakima, a small farming town in Central Washington State. The colors of the countryside were rich and warm and translated into the same earthy palette that the artist uses to create her vibrant paintings. Yakima was named for one of the Indian tribes which has long populated its valley. The weavings and basketry of the Northwest tribes became a source of inspiration for the artist and have influenced the primitive style of her abstract work. Coleman studied art at Parsons and the New York School of Design. She has exhibited in Connecticut, Washington, Florida and New York City.

I was originally drawn to Foliolink because I liked the sharp, professional look of their sample websites for artists. I had been looking for an easy-to-use system that would allow me to design and maintain my own site without costing an arm and a leg. Foliolink provided me with everything I had been looking for. I was able to create my basic site and upload my artwork within a couple of hours, and I was up and running with a fully functional website by the end of the day. People have complimented me on my site, assuming that it was created by professionals. I am happy to refer them to Foliolink, knowing that they will be as thrilled with the results as I am!!

Steven DaLuz

Brasilia HTML

Artists

I am an ex-Air Force officer who decided to engage his lifelong passion as an artist, completed a BFA Degree in 2003, from the University of Texas at San Antonio, and started painting like a man possessed. My interests are currently split between abstraction and figuration. So I've chosen to create two separate bodies of work. I share my studio with 2 other terrific artists and several poltergeists. The Monticello Gallery carries my abstract work in Fort Worth, Texas, and my diverse influences are Rembrandt, John Singer Sargent, and contemporary artists Odd Nerdrum, Dan McCaw, Antoni Tapies, and Vincent Desiderio.

The folks at FolioLink are fantastic. From initial set-up of my site (I was talked thru it), to various maintenance issues, I think I have been helped by just about everyone. Everyone was always prompt, friendly, PATIENT, and immensely helpful. I highly recommend FolioLink to any artist who needs an excellent website.

Luisa Maisel

Toledo

Artists

I am an American sculptor living in France, my medium is clay and glazes. My work reflects upon the fundamental issues affecting modern society and its choices today. Despite a humorous, candy like depiction the themes are quite serious. They have a narrative and symbolic quality, often treating universal issues, political events or natural tragedies. There are 3 axes to my work: portraits, stacking and piling and decorative ceramic pieces. I exhibit often in Paris.

I needed to update my world window and a friend suggested Foliolink. As a beginner on the computer I was worried about all the applications and complications that might occur while building a website. I must say that it has been much easier than I imagined. I have been very happy with both the process, and even more so with the results. A thanks to my friend and certainly to Foliolink for the quality, esthetic values and the warm professional assistance, that they seem to be so well known for.

Lois Russell

Sofia

Artists

I imagine the first basket as hands cupped together, a strong and universal human gesture. I can't know what my work will be about for other people, but I hope it will provoke something, be a starting place for an emotion or a thought. And, missionary that I am, I hope it will convert them to being artists, always looking for what is beautiful and interesting, perhaps where least expected. I want my baskets to invite people to look and touch. I am happiest when someone can't resist picking one up and holding it in their hands.

This works! After years of procrastination, I was able to make a website in an afternoon, and without tears. I love changing colors and formats with a couple of taps. So much fun. And real people answer the phone. Amazing.

Willard Dixon

SOFIA II

Artists

As my practice of painting moves well into it's fifth decade, I have an opportunity to reflect on what common spirit might be running through the work, wether it be a landscape, a still life or most recently a portrait. What I perceive most clearly in the best work is a sense of presence or aliveness, and a "rightness" of form scale and color. I do appreciate more and more the way a painting, it's spirit arising out of such humble materials, continues to rest silently on the wall, contemplating both itself and the viewer amidst the hurried buzz of our contemporary lives, offering a refuge and occasion for those desiring a deeper and more satisfying engagement of our attention.

Creating my own website on FolioLink was a rewarding experience. Even if you are not terribly savvy about computers, the clear way FolioLink is set up, and the easy and quick access to live help from the staff make it a smooth process. The designs of the various templates are clean and inviting and complement and enhance the presentation of the art. The fees are reasonable, and it is a great boon to be able to make changes to your website by yourself anytime you choose. Thanks Foliolink.

Marsha Boston

Brasilia HTML

Artists

I am a painter living and working in Escondido, California. During the last two decades, my work has centered on the myths and concepts that have defined our relationship to nature. My love for botany evolved out of my concern over the uncertain realities of genetic engineering, the accelerated speed of human dominion over nature, and my reverence for the miraculous design of plants. Currently, I am exploring the practice of indigenous herbalism in relation to our mechanistic worldview in a series of acrylic and watercolor paintings.

Before last year, even though my work had been exhibited in numerous juried, and group exhibitions, I had not sought out gallery representation. However, when I received a sabbatical from teaching, I decided to create a web site of my work with the intention of submitting it to galleries. After researching a number of options, I selected FolioLink because of the many features, template choices, reasonable price, and expert service they offered. Once I completed building the site, I sent it to a number of galleries. The next day I received my first response. Now, my work is represented in San Diego, Santa Monica, Dallas, and New York galleries.
