Leave Flash for people making games or where you require content steaming. There's too much crap Flash out there, that just isn't required. You've got a very straightforward site where you have some text, a contact form and some piccies for people to see. Use CSS styled HTML for all that, you'll save yourself time and effort and get the same result anyway.
Anyway, since you put your site up, I assume you want some feedback.
For the record ... I'm hiring photographers for adventure sports at present, but am hardly going to pick a guy who has only one photo on his site, and with the number of photographers out there, it's too easy to just "pass" on those who either have little or no online presence.
If you are shooting on decent gear, list that as well. A friend of mine lists his on his site (http://www.digitaltriathlon.com/about-rob.html). Partly this is for wank factor, but importantly if I am looking to hire someone (I don't know if you are looking for work so this may be a moot point), then I can instantly say, "oh, this guy's half serious about what he's doing". I know for a fact you can't shoot sharp shots on a 28-80 F4.5-5.6 300D so call me a snob, but amateur level gear isn't going to cut it. So, if you have gear worth listing - and you have an interest in being pipcked up for paid assignment ... list it !
Which raises a point: If you are a photographer with some sports experience, and live within cooee of the Gold Coast (or will be there late August), or Geographe Bay (or will be there late September), send me an email: andrew @ rapidascent.com.au ... will need to remove spaces ...
