The thumbnails of the gallery pages show weird crops of the photos (e.g. vertical crop of a horizontal image). Some of the crops are so extreme that the full screen image appears downscaled compared to the thumbnail. Of course, the thumbnail layout looks nice but being so large and so heavily cropped they don't help with navigation and don't represent the images very well.

I think it might also be a good idea to post a portrait of yourself in the bio. Of course, art is a personal endeavour, so I can't help but want to know more about the artist behind the work.

I think you should consider having the photos on the front page scroll automatically, like slide show. If people want to browse through photos manually, of course that is what the dedicated gallery pages are for.

On your title page under your name you say photography. That to me sounds like you are available for work for money. I would change it to photographs. Otherwise looks good on my Ipad.

In general, a contact page with a form should not have other identifying information on it like phone or email. Those are grabbed by bots to be put on scam/phishing/spam lists.

Nowhere on your site does it indicate that you offer services besides stock photos (which aren't arranged through your site it seems), so I'm not sure why such personal contact info is needed to be openly given away.

A design niggle: your logo and category font completely clash with the rest of the site design. For simplicity, your logo is a sans serif, somewhat "futuristic" font while the rest is script or serif'd. It's very jarring from an aesthetic point of view.

Final point, presented with respect...the photo you posted in this thread, taken from your landscapes page, is a headscratcher of a photo and is not representative of the rest of your work.

Someone put a whole lot of time into that site!

Way above my skillset for sure. Very easy to navigate and arranged well.

Sorry, but like the image you posted here, I see nothing appealing about most of your photos. They are like random snapshots with no point of interest.

e.g. The image you have posted above. What do you think makes it appealing or interesting? The outline of the foreground is not sharp and you have not even removed sensor dust spots. Many of the images are not sharp, have excessive noise, and incorrect white balance.

Sorry, but you asked, and that is JMO.
