My name is Irwin Lawson, I am a website designer and photographer, based in Kerikeri, Bay of Islands, New Zealand, specialising in web design, photography and video production.
I create beautiful, usable, professional websites using best practice accessibility and the latest W3C web standards guidelines, resulting in semantic and seo friendly XHTML and CSS.
All my websites are very effective business tools for my clients, included in website packages are:
For building websites, my tools of choice are Macs, Photoshop, and other Adobe software for creating layouts, then coded to produce clean semantic XHTML and CSS.
My CMS of choice is WordPress, as I feel it is the most stable and simple to use system for my clients administration of their sites.
I build Blog, Ecommerce, Paid Membership and Company websites.
I make use of Final Cut Pro X, Adobe Photoshop CS6, Lightroom and Adobe Speedgrade with a variety of cameras and audio systems for video production. Favourite cameras being Canon 60D with Magic Lantern installed, and my new Sony SLT-a99.
When I’m not in front of my computer designing, I am involved with travelling to Asia, sourcing and importing stock for our retail stores Enz of the Earth in Kerikeri and Paihia.
My partner and I have been travelling and negotiating to buy product in Thailand, China, India and Indonesia for the last 15 years.
I have built and administer 60+ websites.View some of my website portfolio here
