My liveBooks website is one of the most important tools (in addition to my photo equipment of course…) used in my business. It allows me to make a living from photography. liveBooks provides me what I need and more!
Shortly after these successful publications, the strong and trusting relationship between Mathieu and his editor opened doors to many photography contracts on different renowned publishing projects, leading him across Quebec and the wide Canadian territory. In between publishing projects, Mathieu maintains a well established full-time career in advertising and covering stories. Throughout the years, he was involved in numerous advertising campaigns such as the Canadian Tourism Commission and Tourisme Québec Government. He is also behind the corporate image of Quebec and Canadian National Parks since nearly 8 years.
Furthermore, he contributes to several periodical magazines such as Géo Plein air, Geographica, Canadian Geographic, Explore, Living with Style Wanderlust UK and Nature’s Best . On September 27th 2010, Mathieu Dupuis received the prestigious mention of “Picture of the day” from the National Geographic Society. Since then, several pictures of his have been added to the National Geographic Image Collection. In addition to this, NIKON has given him the honorable mention to be chosen as one of the 16 emerging talents of 2011 on the occasion of the Nikon Photo Contest International.
The ease of operation and access to support staff is unmatched. liveBooks continues to produce innovative improvements allowing the photographer to concentrate on making images.
The retired automotive advertising photographer’s mastery of technique now serves his own artistic expression. Robert is currently embracing the creative process fostering imagery with more emotional flavor and conceptual significance. He regularly exhibits in galleries and museums. His work is found in private and corporate collections as well. Most of his photography is drawn from his seasonal residence on Northern Lake Michigan and frequent trips to Southwest United States.
His clients include HBO, Pacifico Beer, Progressive Insurance, Gatorade, Nike and many more. His work has been recognized by Communication Arts Photo Annual, Graphis Photo Annual, Archive 200 Best Ad Photographers Annual, The One Show and Photo District News “30 Photographers Under 30.”
Obviously, in our industry, a striking and well thought out website is paramount. I was initially drawn to liveBooks because of the customizable template idea. I wanted a site that was uniquely mine, but needed some parameters and didn’t want to have to think about coding, etc. My primary concerns were ease of use, elegant design, and uniqueness. I worked with my own designer to come up with the overall look and the liveBooks team took it from there to make it real. It was an easy and smooth process.
liveBooks offers a great way to get up and running quickly. The Scaler sites are great for the impact, and there are many well designed templates to choose from. The back end is made easy for the photographer, just upload and place images into your portfolio and it is instantly live.
I initially chose liveBooks because I saw many of my respected colleagues using liveBooks websites, and I’ve always thought the sites looked so polished and modern. This was exactly the look I needed to tie together my logo, promo cards and portfolios. I have been with liveBooks for almost three years, and just completely overhauled and updated my old liveBooks site to a new Scaler site. The results are amazing! My images look so sharp on any size monitor, and the whole process was smooth and relatively painless. liveBooks support staff are very helpful, and very quick to respond.
A website can quite often be a first impression for potential clients. Either through word of mouth, or direction, it’s the first opportunity most people have to view our work. I feel it’s important that the initial viewing make a lasting impression.
A colleague originally turned me on to liveBooks several years ago, and it’s worked for me ever since. My initial design, developed in part by the liveBooks team, stayed with me until a brand redesign a couple of years ago. The experience of my graphic designer and the liveBooks design team working together was a very smooth process, with great success and positive feedback.
With the arrival of Scaler, it allowed us to freshen up the site once again. Using the principals of the brand, Zoelle, our Digital Artist, worked with the liveBooks design team to simplify the website to be even more streamlined. The result is what we see today.
