Help improve speed of Wordpress website (It's ultra slow!)

Hey guys,

I have a website's clients Wordpress website - that is extremely slow.

I have attached three examples of testing websites I have done to show how slow it is running, and I need your help to speed things up!

Perhaps spending an hour or so really helping make this thing fast would be [url removed, login to view] things may include:

Some things that could be done:

- Optimize the images in Photoshop to be saved to web (at the moment they are massive)

- Caching plugins for Wordpress

- Change some server settings if needed

- Move to a faster NZ based server (Currently I am on a HostGator VPS)

- Any other recommendations

There is about [url removed, login to view] MB of images just on the home page alone.

Some of the images I have uploaded are 7MB each. It's a very image heavy website.

I also don't like it how it has the "Loading" thing that comes up when you click on links, perhaps this also slows down the experience.

If it's the theme, or wordpress I might need to get the website redeveloped just as an HTML/CSS website and more light-weight because at the moment it's a bit rediculous.
