Website designers? Parallax scrolling obscuration to prevent theft of 'complete' photographic images?

Q1. Developers, would this idea work?

My aim...

A one page point-of-contact website for my photography [Title, About, very few photos, Contact, links to social media. That's it].

Every photo would never be on screen in it's entirety. Scrolling down would make another image or text fade in above, before the main photo completes, obscuring all or part of the photo (beneath?) at the critcal moment of reveal. A mouse driven fade to black possibly too?

Q2. What to ask a developer for to acheive this?
Q3. I am guessing Wix, Godaddy, and Squarespace won't offer this or am I wrong?

I am aware of these supporting options below but these can be avoided?
....using slideshows, adding copyright notices, adding watermarks, linking to PIXSY, DMCA, and/or Tyntinsight theft notification.

No it wouldn't really you can access developer console and find the direct image link. The problem is that in developer console every resource called it listed and made accessible to the browser this includes your images. The only way would be disable direct browsing of photos in directories to stop this. I have worked with a photographers website and really if you show it on the web there is a way to get it. Watermarking is really your only solid defence.

Watermarking is the only defense,

You might be able to do some bizarre thing by putting the image as a binary file and reconstituting it in the browser but still someone determined would be able to piece it back together
