For me, the custom Scaler site is a magical experience. It engages viewers and delivers features tailored to the needs of a working photographer. I have the confidence of knowing that my work is accessible on any device, from iPhones to massive LCDs. It’s great to go large. One editor confessed that she found herself so attracted to the detail in the Scaler images that she reached out to ‘touch the animals’.

I have been using liveBooks since the early days of the company. I feel as though I have grown up with liveBooks and watched them become one of the industry standards in websites. For me, ease of use is far and away the most compelling aspect of their products. liveBooks continues to simplify and streamline the process of providing information to their customers for fail safe operation. If I am not able to locate the information I need, the customer support team has been very timely responding to my questions and implementing any site changes I have wanted to make along the way.
Even though my site still retains the early look of liveBooks, the images load and display within a very clean and simple interface. I feel clients want to get straight to the work without any fuss up front. Uploading images on the backside within the editSuite is a breeze… drag and drop simple!
Whether it be a major ad campaign or a simple portrait, the sole purpose behind Michael Brian’s dog imagery is to raise the global consciousness to the magical gifts they provide for us. He captures the spirit of of dogs and people beautifully.
I chose liveBooks because their websites have a modern, sleek, and functional design and can easily be customized and integrated with other services such as Photoshelter and PayPal. I value that I can easily make image and text changes to my site myself. I can even modify the parts which have been customized (for example, my slideshows). liveBooks is always upfront about the cost of modifications which, as someone who makes changes to my site from time to time, is very important. I can honestly say that all of these factors have contributed to the overall success of my business.
