I've always loved your banner, it's clean, to the point. I will point out some mild things that bother me. That pheonix doesn't really register as a pheonix in your background. It's cool as a subtle pattern/texture thing, but I'm wondering if you could experiment with having a bunch of photos of what you do, gradually gradiating (if that's even a word?) out from the edges.
Currently I see what you're doing with the gradient transition from your coloured photos to the middle graphic, but the gradient is too obvious to me even in that state. I looks like the blend is 5-10 pixels when you could easily afford to make the blend much more gradual to about 50-100 pixels.
I'd also like to see you try it like this (no idea if the description will translate, but bare with me)
Colour photo 100% transparencey - blends into a slightly less coloured photo 90-80% transparency - blends to an even less coloured photo nearly mono chrome 70-50% transparency - blend to a monochome photo at about 10% transparency - blends to another (these monochrome photos will be behind andrew kand text)- blends back to a nearly monocrome 70-60% transparency - blends to a slightly more coloured 90-80% transparency - blends to full colour.
That's something I think could be cool to try and incorporate somehow
Other than that, even ow it is right now I really like. (though in mobile view, I don't know if anyone would see the photos of you with cameras, so you'd be relying less on visual communication, and more relying on the "film" to get across what you do in mobile form.
