I have happily been working with liveBooks for the past four years. This is my second website with liveBooks and I recommend them to EVERYONE. Their design process is seamless and organized which makes you feel sane! Their designers are clear, concise, talented, and deliver the most beautiful design elements. My sites have been endlessly complimented and I always tell people, look no further… liveBooks is what you’ve been looking for!
I worked with the designers at liveBooks to design my custom Scaler website and I couldn’t be happier with the results. The design team was quick and put in the extra time to make sure my site was everything I imagined. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend liveBooks to anyone looking for a superior photography website.
Mike Henry got his B.F.A. in Photography from Columbia College in Chicago. After years of portrait and business editorial, in both New York and Chicago, Mike packed his bags for sunny Los Angeles where he rebuilt his portfolio and began his career as a commercial lifestyle and advertising photographer. Mike’s work is fun, energetic, clean and sometimes leans towards quirky. The kids love him and adults feel at ease in front of his lens.
Mike now spends his time back and forth between L.A. and N.Y. shooting for advertising, editorial and fashion apparel clients. When not behind the camera you can find Mike enjoying the California beach lifestyle just outside Los Angeles in Santa Monica.
Take a look at Andy Smith’s work and you’ll see that he’s a different kind of photographer. Alongside his lifestyle work, his portfolios are storybooks of real people, often working in unique environments, to provide goods and services that we use everyday. Andy’s most recent project showcases how larger corporations are investing back in the communities where they harvest resources; from funding schools and community programs to planning sustainable resource procurement. From food companies to fashion brands and rubber manufacturers, companies oftentimes have deep supply chains that include small shareholders in developing countries. Many corporations are investing in improving the lives of these people and creating sustainable systems that supplement the resources they harvest. In this time when news about corporations is overwhelmingly negative, it’s important that photographers like Andy tell these stories too. Read more about Andy’s new work and hear more of his stories on his liveBooks website.

You can be sure that there is a story in every frame Edite captures. Her documentary work in “Where is my Babushka?” will take you into a different world. In her “Environmental Portraits” portfolio, Edite uses light to contrast each subjects’ prominent facial features; and, more acutely to express each subject’s personal narrative. In this regard, I’d encourage you to view her work as both a collection of photos and as a portfolio of human experience. Let yourself do more than see Edite’s work, feel the emotion that personifies an Edite Haberman photograph.
I chose a liveBooks Scaler website for the big images, ease of use and the integration with Vimeo. I also knew I could start with a predesigned website template and then customize it to make it my own. There are SO many decisions to be made concerning a website that it can become overwhelming to the point of not beginning at all. So to start with a well designed site that has had a lot of thought put into it and having the ability to personalize it to my taste and needs, made liveBooks an obvious choice for me.
The first response I get from people looking at the site is “love the big images”. Personally I love the intuitive navigation. It is important that you do not have to search around the perimeter of the page to figure out how to navigate the site. I specifically chose a template that had the navigation roughly where I wanted it – on the right side and at the bottom – and then made minor adjustments to make the site my own.
I love the collaboration with Vimeo. Being able to connect to a proven host where I already know the workflow has made integrating video into my site SO easy. And the viewer experience is awesome.
Having a superior website with built-in SEO tools and round-the-clock customer service is critical to running a photography business in the 21st century. liveBooks offers a variety of site designs and design services, which allow your website to evolve with you. In the cut-throat business of commercial outdoor photography, having these items available as a professional looking turn-key solution gives you an edge. Professional presentation and ease-of use for first time viewers and potential clients helps you stand head and shoulders above your competition. The new Scaler sites enable you to bring even more punch to your presentation with full browser scaling images that will make any art director stand up and take notice of your finely attended to details.
I love liveBooks because I can easily manage my own content, their websites are scaleable and you can integrate many features into them. Zero down time is critical with potential clients viewing work around the globe. Past experiences with custom designed sites and large amounts of downtime forced me to see the light, and now I know to never look anywhere else again.
When I got my first liveBooks site a few years ago, I was impressed with how easy it was to make design changes and update my imagery. The liveBooks support team was extremely easy to work with.
The truth was I felt I really didn’t need a website, since 100% of my income was generated by stock sales. I only used it to establish my bona-fides for potential locations and models. Having recently decided to pursue assignment work, I knew I needed an updated website. Initially I was not happy to pay an extra premium for the Scaler site, but now I’m very happy I did. Our new Scaler site presents the images the way they should be seen – large and beautiful – which has a completely different visual impact.
