I have two things to say about this site; 1) the photographs are outstanding and 2) the unusual site navigation works surprisingly well. Simon's photos are, in my opinion, very fascinating in themes and really make me think about the situations in which they were taken. The site navigation makes use of js fx that roll out the content and in turn makes you have to scroll vertically to see the photos in each series. This, for some reason, is a very pleasing way to enjoy his photos.

Norwegian developer/designer/photographer Tobias Baeck has just mashed up his various online presences into one powerful package. Strong Flickr photography, a great logo, tons of del.icio.us links, Virb, LinkedIn, etc. Essentially Tobias' blog has great attitude and stands out from your average blog. Via Web creme.

The portfolio site of contemporary artist & photographer Branislav Kropilak has gone through a realignment as well as having two new sections of work added. The photography work is great and unlike most pretty photography portfolios, the navigation stays in one place within an entire series (i.e. no navigation buttons jumping around all over the screen). I like the fact that it is all aligned to the top left. Kind of retro, really.

Danish Lars Bech's portfolio is a Flash-folio filled with photographic candy. The prev/next navigation is a bit plain and low on usability for a site like this, but the rest of the presentation is a joy to behold. I love how large type is used.

Kimm Saatvedt is a Norwegian photographer based in Oslo, the city where I'm located as well. Several of the previous installments of his personal portfolio site have been on Styleboost before. The latest version is no different, and definitely deserves a closer look. The all flash interface works well on a 1280 pixel wide screen as well as on my personal setup, a 1920 pixel wide screen, as it scales the work to the screen size. The navigation is simple and easy to use, while at the same time doing it a little bit different from the others. A nice detail to accompany the amazing photos.

Filippa Smedhagen Sund's portfolio is, as far as I can recall, the first makeup artist's portfolio to be featured here on Styleboost. Its striking use of photography as well as the surprisingly easy to understand, yet highly experimental navigation of the site come together and combine forces for a great user experience. Slick and powerful.

Belgian photographer/director Kurt Stallaert's excellent portfolio sadly makes use of a fullscreen popup to show off his top notch work. It even tries to force a fullscreen popup on its visitors. I'm sure this is going to leave many potential fans leaving before they even take a look at what he's capable of creating. Too bad.

The portfolio of product designers Lucy Nunn and Tobie Snowdowne is quite a gem. On first view I found it to be a bit plain but elegant. On a closer look, however, I came to notice how well the product designs were being displayed. The design of the site is centered around the tasty product shots. It's classic, beautiful and functional enough, even though its all done in Flash.

This site features one of the best and most intuitive navigation interfaces that I've ever encountered in a photographer's flashfolio. On top of that, the site is crisp, the photos are fresh and the text is perfectly sized to read. This is top notch work.
