Who is it for?

Our websites are perfect for photographers and artists but are also used by make-up artists, stylists, designers, art directors and anyone who wants a stunning platform on which to present their work.

Beautiful designs

LayerSpace websites are designed specifically to show images to their best potential. This means removing distractions and making the design clean, graphic, elegant, easy to use and fast loading.

Your LayerSpace website is customisable to an incredible degree - template, fonts, colours, borders, and logos can all be edited with just a few mouse clicks, any time you like.

Some background information

My name is Andy Eaves, a professional photographer and member of the Association of Photographers.
I began designing and building websites more than 10 years ago, building my own site which I wanted to be:

  • Elegant and uncluttered
  • Fast loading
  • Accessible and simple to use

  • Discovering that other photographers had the same requirements Layer Web Design was born.
    After launching Layer I developed the underlying technology, adding bespoke content management, and soon realised there was a gap in the market for a premium quality, professional, easy to use website creation system for professional photographers and artists.

    Other ideas - the LightBox, password protection, multiple websites, e-commerce and customisation quickly followed, and Voila! LayerSpace was a reality!
