Here are some sites I've found helpful or interesting.

Web design
All of these have oodles of information for anyone who wants to build their own website.
www.devshed.com
www.alistapart.com
www.webreference.com

Photography
www.dpreview.com — good place to research which camera to buy. When I was looking for my first digital camera I checked their forums. In one forum people were discussing problems and how to fix them, but in the Canon forum people were discussing how great their cameras were. So I bought a Canon G2. When it was time to upgrade my camera I found the same thing and bought the Canon G9. I currently have the Canon SX60 "bridge" camera and love its 65x zoom.

Web hosting company
www.westhost.com — They offer good packages at reasonable prices and I've found them to be reliable and helpful, both with help from a person and on their active and informative forums. They have a referral program, so if you should sign up with them, please list Deerfoot Studios as your referral.

Free Fonts
www.fontfreak.com, www.freemacfonts.com — good sites for specialty fonts. Feel free to look around and choose a look you like. I use a Mac, so if you want me to use a font in your design, those are the ones you should look at. Free fonts are ok for headlines and short areas of text, however, most do not have sufficient kerning and tracking information to look well in text blocks.
