This project was to provide a landscape and architectural design company with photos that could be used to design a new roofline and retrofit.
Barry’s work is always spot-on. When I needed some drone photos, on short notice, to help a client visualize the impacts of adding some additional floor space and roof to their house, the shots Barry delivered were perfect, and on-time. The aerial perspective gave an overall view that helped the client see the impacts of their decisions and better understand the magnitude of their project. What a huge help! Thanks, Barry!

These cheerleaders are from Columbus, Mississippi and held their camp in Gulf Shores, Alabama. This video is from one of their practice sessions.
Please note: It is not legal to fly over people. We created this video by staying away and using 4K video resolution to provide a zoomed in perspective.
A group of students from Birmingham, Alabama had a field trip to explore an estuary and the Gulf of Mexico. We used the drone to do two things:
- Spot alligators in the marsh before they hiked through it. Yes! There were alligators and they still walked through. We were there to mark their location and to let the biologist assess their behavior.
- Take a video highlighting their trip.
Please note: It is a violation of FAA regulations to fly over people unless waivers are granted. We did not fly over people, but remained downwind to prevent any possible issue.
- Excellent security. They had a history of website hacking which caused their website to be down for considerable lengths of time.
- Simple editing platform. We recommended they use WordPress which is very easy to update and modify.
- Event details that were accessible to only members.
WordPress, which is the basis of this website as well, requires a development company that is skilled in security. While WordPress, typically, is not the first place to turn when excellent security is required, we have plenty of experience and knowledge to prevent catastrophes.
I am extremely pleased with the website Barry Pendley created for our organization, USA Therapy Dogs, www.usatherapydogs.org. Before finding Barry in March 2014 our website was hacked continuously to the point it needed to be shut down to a “bare-bones” site. I researched and interviewed several website designers and was disappointed quite often with the lack of enthusiasm and non-responsiveness. When I did find Mr. Pendley, he personally answered the phone and I told him of our dilemma, he was able to look into the makeshift website we did have and immediately offered to design a temporary site for people who were searching for therapy dog information, he did this at no cost to USA Therapy Dogs. Within 3 days USA Therapy Dogs had a temporary website up and searchers knew to come back and search again in “x” amount of time for detailed information. From the time I interviewed Barry to the time USA TD was up and running live on the web was less than eight weeks. He is dedicated and diligent.
Barry was and still is willing to help out; he answers his phone when I call without having to go through a long list of menu items, he is trustworthy and always very pleasant. He communicates well and explains every bit of the website development process so it was easy to understand. Also, there were no hidden costs. I would recommend Barry to any organization or business who wants to deal with a real person and sincerely cares about the websites he designs.
Sincerely, Diane Noblett
I am a small local business owner in Oxford MI. I have used Evmikna Graphics for my website optimization along with the website design.Since I put my website promotion and web design in the hand of Evmikna, they have transformed my website from a low ranking do-it-yourself site to a professional well designed site that has jumped to the top of search engine pages for Oxford MI, the surrounding areas and the world. We are so grateful for Evmikna Graphics for keeping us on top of our competition and provides us with the best customer care. Shawn, Oxford, Michigan
A good business website usually means more than just listing your location, hours of operation, and perhaps an “About Us” page. Well I had that in the pass and it was time for a BIG change, Barry listen and knew I was not selling a product but I was looking for the right family’s to adopt one of my puppies. Don’t get me wrong — the basic information is definitely important. The Internet is a major resource for anyone searching for information, especially for consumers searching for products and businesses. Thanks Barry you gave my website a personal touch. I was lucky to fine you with a talent to come up with the visual representation I needed.~Andrew Pellerito, Shagspeare Old English Sheepdogs, Clarkston, MI
We enjoyed helping Andrew with his website for 4 years. Unfortunately, the website no longer exists. It had a flash element with puppies floating down from the sky.
GPS Recycling wanted the ability to add, change and modify their own website. We do not take credit for this nice design. We will take credit for their internet ranking presence.
We started this project in December 2014. Now (January 2015), they are already showing in the top 40 spots in Google for their main terms. By February 2015, they were #2, in Google, for their main phrase.
It is one thing to be found, but do they get the leads? Absolutely! We are looking forward to a great, long-term relationship with this company.
More than just the website
We also created YouTube Videos for this client. YouTube is the 2nd best search engine on the web. You MUST have YouTube videos to capture more market share. We can help you do this easily and painlessly.

This was a collaborative project with a website developer in Gulf Shores. Their former website was difficult to edit. The site was limited because a nationwide website service had a unique back-end. Finding the right “module” to place the content into was a challenge even for the avid computer user.
So, we chose to move to the WordPress platform which allows for great ease. While the site is managed, foremost, by website developers who are church members, the editing is simple enough for staff that are limited computer users.
Policies on Hosting
We provide hosting for websites alone. Therefore, we have compiled the following to explain the parameters by which we are offering these services.
Rights We Reserve
We reserve the right to suspend and terminate websites for any reason we deem necessary. This will be done without maliciousness. Reasons may include, but not be limited to delinquent payments, non-payments, statements that you will not continue using our services, violation of the below issues. Our rights to suspend and terminate may involve immediate action on our part. Notification will follow. We generally give notification with dates and times of a suspension or termination.
We reserve the right to destroy website material. If illicit and/or illegal material, malicious scripts, material placed above the /public_html/ root, remote backups are found, we reserve the right to delete the material without providing you backup. We will create a backup of illegal material and present it to the proper authorities.
We reserve the right to allow IT professionals, our server providers, and developers to examine your site and for technical issues and perform scans. Since they will be able to view all data, the onus is on you, the website owner, to have legitimate material.
We reserve the right to disallow your access to website dashboards, administration panels, FTP and CPanel. Access is considered on a case-by-case basis. If these privileges are extended, they may be revoked at our discretion, immediately. Your website hosting plan does not demand access to these features.
We provide hosting for websites. Therefore, we do not allow information to be placed outside a website hosting environment. That means, your website (including all scripts and data) are to be located under the /public_html/ folder. Any material/scripts found above that location can be destroyed immediately and at our discretion, even if we cannot determine if they pose a risk.
Our customers may only participate in lawful activities. Storage or sending of any material in violation of any Country, Federal, State or Local regulation is prohibited. It is impossible to list all of the evils this world offers. Child Pornography, human trafficking, copyright infringement and a host of other illegal activities, too numerous to list are forbidden. We have the right and obligation to turn that data over to the proper authorities.
Anonymous proxies are prohibited on Evmikna’s Servers.
This area of concern is often misunderstood. We monitor email traffic (neither the content nor subject lines) to determine the health of the email system. As our customer, you agree to not send bulk e-mail to either your clients or friends. Did you know that sending a batch of 18 emails can identify you as a spammer? Even if it is to your friends! We will note unusual activity and contact you in the event that you inadvertently spam. There are free solutions (e.g., MailChimp) that allow you to send a batch of emails. It is NOT in your interest to persist in this activity. It may result in blacklisting your domain. Have you had complaints that people did not receive your email? One common reason is that you may have sent too many bulk emails.
We will do our best to educate you and help you toward solid solutions. However, if you persist we will have to take seriously and swift action. This may result in immediate account cancellation without a refund. More information about anti-spam can be found at: http://www.business.ftc.gov/documents/bus61-can-spam-act-compliance-guide-business
Digital Money Mining
We do not permit the use of digital money mining scripts to run on our server.
Using Evmikna’s hosting to impersonate another person or entity, be it through Email, Internet Forums, or any other means, is strictly prohibited. This includes spoofing email or network packet headers whether or not it is done for malicious purposes.
Customer agrees to not engage in activities pertaining to Black Hat SEO, Spamdexing, and so-called “Scraper sites.” These can all have a severely detrimental effect on server performance and are not permitted.
Any conduct that is likely to result in retaliation against Evmikna’s server including engaging in behavior that results in any server being the target of a denial of service attack (DoS).
Your hosting fees include backups made every three days of your CPanel.
Adult Thumbnail Galleries/Banner Exchanges
You agree not to run a banner exchange, free adult tgp (thumbnail gallery post), or free adult image galleries on your website.
Any script/process/etc that adversely affects the ability of any other customer to satisfactorily use their provided services is forbidden. This includes, but is not limited to, CPU-intensive CGI/PHP scripts and websites for which the scale of traffic has exceeded the acceptable limits of a shared hosting environment.
All IRC bots and “bouncers” (bnc, etc) are forbidden.
While we recognize the value in the BitTorrent protocol as a distribution method, it is far too easily (and often accidentally) abused/misused and therefore not allowed on Evmikna’s services.
All proxy software, anonymous or otherwise, is forbidden on Evmikna’s servers.
Any process that opens a network socket to accept connections from external networks is forbidden. Processes are allowed to bind to the local host only, but are held to the limitations placed on all other processes. They must not use up more than their fair share of resources and they must not interfere with any other customers’ activities.
