My sites have been endlessly complimented and I always tell people, look no further… liveBooks is what you’ve been looking for!
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.
Sean Harris: Portrait Photographer
We hope you enjoy liveBooks first foray into video on our Success page with a highlight of Sean Alonzo Harris talking about why he loves liveBooks.
At age seven photographer Sean Young Harris received his first camera; a gift from his grandmother. It was a watershed moment that would begin a lifelong passion for photography. In high school, his work won him the James VanDerZee Black Heritage award. Sean went on to study at the Art Institute in Boston and currently lives and practices in Maine.
Sean describes his work as interpretive of people and environments. He has a wonderful ability to capture emotion and to tell visual stories that transcend simple subject and environment. In this way, the work evokes a curious quality of “What comes next?”, and the narrative in the viewer perceptions becomes a part of the experience of viewing his work.
With each passing year I realize more and more that a portfolio is a living breathing thing. It changes it grows, it’s constantly evolving, and someone has gotta feed it.
liveBooks provides a content management system that is easy to use, super intuitive, and fast. It was my very first site, and while my style, content and logos have changed, the site has grown with me. Having a website that is always showing my latest work is important for the obvious reason that people tend to see my website before they agree to see me. But what I think is important is that the site draws them in, makes them want to see the next image. If your website doesn’t change, people stop looking, they know exactly what’s behind door number two. So keeping the site current with my newest work is really important, and liveBooks makes it easy.
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.
