As a designer today an online presence is a must. I chose liveBooks because I needed a clean, modern design that is easy to navigate and update. I have received a lot of positive feedback on my site from potential and existing clients.

Amanda Zorumnski Design & Decor us a full service decorating and interior design firm. Amanda believes that design can change the way people view the world and the space they live in, much like we believe your website can shape how the world sees you!

Right now she is working on multiple residential projects in Connecticut and New York. A colonial in Bronxville, an antique in Old Greenwich and another colonial in New Canaan. It has been fun for her to infuse the colonials with modern elements to make them fresh and inviting yet sophisticated for the young families living there.

As a photographer having a website with a simple layout that emphasizes my work is what helps me to attract new clients. In addition to making my big, bold images stand out my liveBooks site is really easy to use. The ability to quickly add images to my website is crucial to keeping my work fresh and relevant.

Seattle-based photographer Hank Drew has been behind the camera for 30 years—ten of those were between the ages of 12 and 22 with his beloved Grandfather’s 35mm. He specializes in product advertisements in the fashion and beauty industry, and lifestyle shoots for local magazines. Among his retail clients are Nordstrom, REI, Starbucks, Amazon, Endless.com and Marios. Media clients include Gray magazine, Seattle Metropolitan magazine and Seattle Metropolitan Bride and Groom magazine.

While technology has changed since that first 35mm, Hank’s passion for finding beauty from behind the camera is still as strong as ever. Attending to every detail of the image process brings him more than just professional fulfillment—it’s the thrill of discovering that there is no subject that cannot be made attractive or engaging. This extends to his website as well. His website is beautifully designed and the interactive portfolio home page immediately engages the viewer in his work.

We built our first site with liveBooks in 2006.  3 versions later, with a full re-redesign just launched, we’re starting to receive great compliments on the site’s overall design story, clean interface and seamless user experience. Our liveBooks site does exactly what it’s supposed to do – it simply and elegantly shows off the images we capture. The liveBooks editSuite is simple to use, which makes it easy for our team to jump in and update portfolios on any current project. We can rest easy knowing we’ll always have the most up to date tools at our fingertips because liveBooks is always building better features into the site’s capabilities. Overall, we couldn’t be happier with our new website and look forward to continuing our partnership with liveBooks in the years to come.

My website is the primary way I showcase my photography work online. It is also the portal to my press and blog. Working with liveBooks to create a custom designed site has been amazing. They consistently exceeded my expectations with solutions to the ideas I presented to them. I couldn’t be happier!

Why have I been a liveBooks customer for years? I think of liveBooks as a minimalistic canvas. Their websites allow your photography to be framed in a modern aesthetic. It’s important that your presentation be creative, but also classy and concise. I am marketing to agencies, art directors, musicians, management teams, models, and other artists. They need to feel alive when they look at my work, not have to navigate tirelessly through a website.

In addition to being elegant and easy-to-use, you can add any number of great features to your website. And the best part is they are implemented in a way so as not to take away from the work presented. Now that’s genius! The staff is responsive and works diligently to make changes. And I’m free from the headaches of having to alter the design and format of my site.

I’m very happy with my website. I am actually excited when I visit it.

Editorial fashion photographer Jason Bassett’s love for photography began with editorials as he can be in the present and tell a story at the same time. His work is inspired by vintage, contemporary, romance and nostalgia. You can see these themes in his still and motion work. And we agree – his liveBooks website lets his work speak for itself!

As a full time professional landscape, nature and wilderness photographer I chose liveBooks to showcase my work and help me stand out from the crowd. First impressions count, and liveBooks provides me with a super slick, clean website that lets me prominently display my photography to my customers. I frequently receive emails from visitors praising my website for its clean interface and easy to navigate layout.

I am frequently traveling in the Polar regions of the world and as such my time is extremely limited when it comes to updating websites. I need to focus on my photography and don’t want to have to spend time being a website creator. liveBooks provides me with a simple easy to use back end interface that allows me to quickly get my new work online and available. It allows me to spend more time with my camera and less time in front of the computer.

My business has grown substantially in the time I have been with liveBooks and I regard them as a core component of my business and a valued partner.

As a photographer I rely on my website to showcase my work. I’ve been using liveBooks for many years now. It is so easy to update and the big, scaling image size really makes an impact on the viewer. Being able to make last minute changes is important to me and if I need help the liveBooks support team is always very responsive. I have also sold a lot of my work directly from my website.

Since my liveBooks website was such an effective tool for my business I decided to launch a second website. The fine art market is very nuanced so I wanted to have a separate site where my fine art work could be displayed. Now I have a site for my commercial work and one for my fine art work. liveBooks made it easy for me to have two sites at a reasonable price.

Rob Lang is a fine art and commercial photographer living in New York City and Fort Lauderdale. He specializes in lifestyle and location photography. Rob’s priority as a photographer is getting the subject to be natural and spontaneous. He says, “There are pretty pictures and then there are photos filled with life. I go for life.” We love how he puts the life in his lifestyle photography! See how Rob effectively uses two websites to showcase his commercial and fine art photography.

As a fine artist, I rely on my website to show off my work to the global art community. Most often collectors, curators and gallery owners are introduced to my work through my website before they see the art in person. The images of my sculptures and installations need to be represented in a clean, compelling, and professional manner. Too many sites add a lot of visual noise, making it cluttered and difficult to focus the images.

I am very happy with my liveBooks website. I was able to choose from an array of professional, elegant and contemporary templates. I found it incredibly fast and easy to update my images and information. The staff are easily accessible, for anything from basic questions to structural changes. My site is consistently complimented. My viewers feel comfortable navigating through my website and enjoy visiting again and again. liveBooks is invaluable to my profession!

Fine artist Lisa C Soto grew up in New York City and Spain. Her Caribbean heritage and continuous movements between continents and islands have informed her themes. This provides her with a unique, global perspective. The motifs of transculturalism and diminishing borders resonate through her art. She has been invited to residencies, received commissions and has exhibited her work in the United States, Europe and the Caribbean. Her wire drawings are beautifully constructed and reflect her point of view. We love that she included video of one of her shows on her website. It really brings her work to life!

I chose to work with liveBooks for several reasons. The high caliber of photographers using liveBooks and the ability to create a custom designed website that is easy to navigate were what drew me in.

Having a custom designed website is very important to me and for the image of my business. I wanted to establish a specific look and feel for my production company. The result was consistent branding combined with a clean, visually striking design. It established a polished and professional image and even offers password protected access to my clients, a feature that is vital to my company’s productivity. My clients look for substance behind a great design and they certainly appreciate the functionality and ease of use that the site offers. It is hard to believe that a complex website is hidden behind a sleek and intuitive set of menus. And I have to say their customer support is second to none.

My business has grown and continues to thrive due in large part to my liveBooks website. My partnership with liveBooks has always been mutually beneficial and I insist on that being the core of any relationship with a business partner. liveBooks looks to their customers for feedback and has made many key improvements as a result. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve received compliments on my website!

As a photographer my fine art photography website is one of my most important marketing tools. It is how I appear to the wider world. It is important to me that the design be simple, clean, and a clear representation of my work. My liveBooks site is all of this. I’ve also enjoyed working with the liveBooks team to develop and maintain my site. Web design is not my forte and their help has been invaluable!
