A couple of things I would point out though:
1) JQuery is great for making much more interactive designs, but so many people forget about accessibility. I'd suggest putting a small text based navigation bar at the bottom of the site, this way users could navigate the site with their keyboard and it would probably make it easier for mobile devices. It's a pain in the arse but it is really worth it.
The problem with the intro splash is that it seems to be having a backwards effect and making your site load more slowly - the less unnecessary scripting the better!
3) Validate your contact form! I'm sorry, I hit send without typing anything, being a web developer it's something I do whenever anyone asks me to check out their site... I didn't check your source but from the message box that I got it told me the mail was sent, even though the fields were empty. I can see you have some client side validation going on checking whether stuff is entered, but it's not being used to stop empty messages. Like I say, I didn't have time to check the source, either that or it is but you haven't edited your info box text!
Otherwise it's a really great site, you should be proud. I especially like the gallery section, really clean and great use of imagery.
Thanks for taking the time to check through the site!
Nice idea about the quick links at the bottom. I'm currently doing a intro video
which I want to link to from the bottom of the page also!
Yeah the splash screen has been buggin me too. Yes its definitely causing a few probs on some browsers! It's only there for looks, but i do like this instead of the website jumping to the home page !
Yes the contact page isn't quite working right with the validation! Having probs with that one at the moment. Still messages do get through
