liveBooks has been a natural fit for my creative workflow. My liveBooks site is easy to use which frees me up to create images, not sit for hours maintaining a site just to end up with all my images buried under pages and links where art directors and image buyers are not likely to find them. More than just a service that is intuitive liveBooks is a comfortable environment for me and my clients to navigate. All my portfolios are easily accessible and I am very proud of the professional manner in which they are displayed. I cannot ever see going back to my old site, which though I built it from scratch, in the end, was “Frankensteined” together.
The feedback from new and prospective clients has been tremendous! As soon as my site went live I gained new respect and confidence in my images and myself as a photographer. I just finished a coffee table book with a writer from Town & Country Magazine and was asked to be the sole photographer on a new book early next year. My work and client base continues to grow and I have full confidence that liveBooks will be right there with me as part of my team.
