My First Website. Critique Please.
So I built a website for my girlfriend. She is an aspiring actress, so I figured I would build her an official site for practice.
Any comments or suggestions would be much appreciated. I built it on a fluid layout and made it responsive..

Here are my opinions (please don't take any offence, they are just my personal opinions):
- I would definitely change the colour scheme. The main text colour needs to be white or alternatively change the background colour. I find the text very difficult to read.
- Logo link not directing to homepage. Instead it gives a 404 error.
- Maybe use a jquery image gallery for the photos - especially if more photos will be added in the future.
Otherwise, good for your first attempt.
Thanks for pointing that out. I fixed it.

Your video looks like its broken too. I like the look of the site minus the color, change the font or the background color and you'll be good :)
"She soon began taking classes with renounced teacher and actor Jon Mennick."
Perhaps you meant "renowned teacher"? :P.
I'd be a little offended to be called a "renounced teacher" - you may want to change that.
(Yes - not I know a web design critique)
I'd also agree with there not being enough contrast between the font colour and the background.
You're a pretty cool guy for making your girlfriend a site - I hope she appreciates it :).
(Just spotted you spelt "Biography" wrong also.)
Thanks everyone for the feedback. Yeah probably should have proof read it before launching lol. That's why I'm here to learn. I'm going to update the colors, and fix the spelling errors that everyone pointed out.
As for the bitcoin and litecoin logos, I will be trying to fix those.
The photo page is a bit clunky.
