My liveBooks website is one of the most important tools (in addition to my photo equipment of course…) used in my business. It allows me to make a living from photography. liveBooks provides me what I need and more!
Shortly after these successful publications, the strong and trusting relationship between Mathieu and his editor opened doors to many photography contracts on different renowned publishing projects, leading him across Quebec and the wide Canadian territory. In between publishing projects, Mathieu maintains a well established full-time career in advertising and covering stories. Throughout the years, he was involved in numerous advertising campaigns such as the Canadian Tourism Commission and Tourisme Québec Government. He is also behind the corporate image of Quebec and Canadian National Parks since nearly 8 years.
Furthermore, he contributes to several periodical magazines such as Géo Plein air, Geographica, Canadian Geographic, Explore, Living with Style Wanderlust UK and Nature’s Best . On September 27th 2010, Mathieu Dupuis received the prestigious mention of “Picture of the day” from the National Geographic Society. Since then, several pictures of his have been added to the National Geographic Image Collection. In addition to this, NIKON has given him the honorable mention to be chosen as one of the 16 emerging talents of 2011 on the occasion of the Nikon Photo Contest International.
Prior to committing, I called liveBooks with a few questions. I spent almost an hour on the phone with Patrick, one of the customer support representatives. It’s funny, most of us (including myself) don’t really take customer service into consideration until after a purchase. Comments and feedback are usually left for negative experiences. But Patrick and the rest of the support team have been overwhelmingly helpful, going above and beyond anything I expected. They spent additional time with me reviewing websites, discussing options and and offering suggestions. And not just on website design but on marketing as a whole. In addition, the changes I made were updated almost immediately. I’ve never experienced a team so eager to help. When we were done, they even invited me over to their office in California!
liveBooks and their support team allowed me to take my idea of what a portfolio site should be and turned it into a reality. Almost instantly. liveBooks is clearly the best solution out there. My only regret is that I didn’t find them sooner!
Carlos went school to become an architect and had a great job waiting for him when he graduated college. It was his dream job with the only sustainable architecture firm in the region. They offered him a partnership opportunity. According to Carlos, upon graduating from college, “a mind flip drove him to look for the truth of happiness and the truth of himself.” Instead of “sitting, working, and waiting for life to finish,” he gave up everything, sold all his material possessions, put the cash in his pocket, and boarded a plane and took off for destnations unknown to “target harmony, happiness, and truth.”
The ease of operation and access to support staff is unmatched. liveBooks continues to produce innovative improvements allowing the photographer to concentrate on making images.
The retired automotive advertising photographer’s mastery of technique now serves his own artistic expression. Robert is currently embracing the creative process fostering imagery with more emotional flavor and conceptual significance. He regularly exhibits in galleries and museums. His work is found in private and corporate collections as well. Most of his photography is drawn from his seasonal residence on Northern Lake Michigan and frequent trips to Southwest United States.
After only a few short weeks of going live my new liveBooks website elevated me into a new market. With a new client base being established, my projects were increasing in complexity and budget. My workload was evolving from small partial day shoots to large multiple day assignments for prominent companies. The new attention that my business was receiving was due to two major factors: powerful search engine optimization tools and the overall aesthetic of my site. My liveBooks site not only looks great and functions beautifully, it also ensures that my site is searchable without having to pay others for search results.
With customer support quick to resolve issues, the best SEO in the industry and features that work hard so that you can spend more time shooting, I will continue to recommend liveBooks to creative professionals looking to take their business to the next level.
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.
