    Hi Peter, you may have opened a can of worms asking me this question since I do have a background in photography. So, brace yourself...

    The photograph, right now, is very boring. It's straightforward medium shot, lots of background, with one overhead light source.

    I really think your best bet is to take a new photograph. Find a well lit area that does not cast shadows on your face. This may be tricky with the glasses. You'll probably want at least two light sources, one from each side. I'd suggest a side angle, not straight, with the stronger light source on the front, and a lesser one on the darker side. If you can get a back light, I'd do that too. Next, make the photo a close up, or even extreme close up, so the frame is not dominated by white wall. Wear a shirt in a color that complements your skin tone, no black, no white. I personally think collared shirts look more professional.

    Or, if it's completely unfeasible to take a new shot, take it into your graphic program of choice, lighten up the shadows, change the colors and crop.

    So, since I am in a creative mood, but I am stuck doing back-end stuff, I have now taken a break to modify your photograph. I've taken extreme liberty, so don't mind my humor, but at the same time I am illustrating what I've explained above.

    I like the shortened nav bar and the font style therein. I noticed a problem with the image and your tutorial page, looks like you may have to change the width/height of the <td>.

    Yeah I've just noticed that.
    I've looked at it offline and it works fine, it's just the one on the actual site thats not working properly!
    Thank You for spotting that.

    Just one little thining:

    It's always nice to know what page you are on.

    How about having the circle highlited depending on the page the visitor is on. (Thats not very clear is it, sorry)

    What I mean is when you are on the 'home' page the circle next to the home page button is highlighted.

    I know you have good clear titles, but it's always nice to see a indication in the navigation as well.

    It would be pretty easy for me to set the nav to do that!
    Thank you for that Richard

    If you want to get more work the best thing to do is advertise localy.

    It would be very hard to get a good search engine rank for key words like 'web design' ect.

    This may sound silly, but make some decent cards and put them in shop windows.

    You don't realy need hits, you need to get jobs, the best way to do this is 'real world' advertising and word of mouth.

    Good luck.
