What’s not to love about liveBooks? I chose liveBooks because, uploading and managing content is as easy as it gets. Before that, I had a pretty ordinary static site that was a nightmare to keep up to date, taking hours of my precious time to just upload a couple of images. Now new work can be uploaded and tagged within minutes using the well designed, easy to use editSuite. Adding SEO keywords is simple, intuitive and crucial to help search engines find your site. And now with the recent introduction of Scaler, which allows for bigger images that scale to fit the viewer’s monitor, my work has much more impact and is displayed on the web in the best possible way.
Being a designer as well as a photographer, customising and branding my site to ensure consistency with my company identity is essential. The liveBooks support team made implementing my company logo and colour palette effortless.
I’ve been using liveBooks for over 7 years now to showcase my editorial and commercial work. I recently expanded my work to include backstage images. Since I am involved with so many designers and shows, I wanted to launch a second site to display this work. I knew I needed something compatible with how I currently represent myself. At first I considered a blog, but having had so much control over the design and content of my liveBooks site I wondered if I could take the design of my existing website and modify it to accommodate this new venture.
This seemed like a good idea, but the timing was tight. I was only a week and a half from shooting my first show in NY for fashion week when I contacted liveBooks. After 2 emails, I was already in my editSuite naming portfolios and loading imagery. The integrated design process and exemplary customer service at liveBooks made the launch of my new site (www.schmidt-show.com) seamless.
