About Me

My interests & background

I’m a professional freelance web designer with over ten years’ experience, specialising in creating unique websites from scratch to launch.

I studied web design at City of Bristol College, College Green in 2002. More info at my LinkedIn profile.   Then I got a job at the University of Bristol in 2003, and had further training to develop my skills and experience in web design and development. My freelance work started a few years later, although I continued to work part-time at the University.

Photography

freelance web designer, Clare Williams

I’m a keen amateur photographer and love to get out in the fresh air by a sandy beach or in scenic countryside and take photos.
My favourite topics for photography are food, cats, wildlife as well as beautiful scenery. Some of my own photos are included on client websites.

Google, Alamy & Shutterstock

I work freelance to help clients get their business online

My interest in photography has lead me to be a Level 6 Google contributor as a Local Google Guide.  These contributed photos help Google improve its world map service.
One of my foodie photos has had over 51,000 hits! I’m also a Shutterstock and Alamy contributor.  You can see my Shutterstock portfolio here.

Video Production

video production

As a hobby, I’ve become something of a citizen journalist.  If there’s a newsworthy event nearby, I go along and shoot video.  Some of these videos have sold to ITN and Reuters.

Professional Development

freelance working and learning new skills

It’s important to me to keep up with new technology and developments. I have recently taken courses in PHP and Javascript as well as Ruby on Rails, in which I built apps. I’m not a programmer, but have enough knowledge of programming to be useful when developing a WordPress website.
