The best way I can think to describe Lucy’s work is with the adjective “Live”. The sports photography on her liveBooks site plays out like an “ESPN Top 100 Sports Moments” except better; it’s energetic, spontaneous and well… live! Every image on her liveBooks site feels momentous. You will likely find your mind playing out a scenario of what might come next after each frame. For this reason, Lucy has covered the greatest of sporting events including five Super Bowls, 11 NBA finals, and recently the Olympic Games.
Lucy is also accomplished in the area of photojournalism. The emotion in her portfolios of Afghanistan and Gaza feels raw and undisturbed. Each image feels like something you would remember forever if you saw it first hand. I was especially moved by the intensity of images she captured from Gaza, in which each insightful photo captures the humanity and inhumanity of war even beyond what is tangible in the frame. To this end, Lucy’s images enable important stories to be told.
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.

Craig’s photography has a majestic quality that creates the illusion of movement. His mastery of light pulls your eyes across each of the vast landscapes he captures. The various textured elements accentuate the story and connect you to the subject of each photograph.
When you look at Craig’s work you can’t help but reflect upon just how beautiful our world truly is.The magic began at the age of 14. Craig recalls the wonderful experience of seeing a photographic print miraculously appear in the tray for the first time in a makeshift darkroom; illuminated only by the glow of a few Christmas tree lights. Later, after a chance encounter with a famous west coast master photographer and viewing his work on the walls of a small photography gallery, Craig made the momentous decision to become a photographer. He enrolled in an art program at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, where he received a Bachelor of Fine Arts. He went on to receive a Master of Fine Arts degree from the prestigious Rochester Institute of Technology and later worked with famed photographer Paul Caponigro in Santa Fe, where Craig has lived since 1985.
Since the opening of his first major one-man show at the Albuquerque Museum of Art in 1994, he has won accolades for his work exhibited in museums and galleries across the country. He has published seven books of his photographs, focusing primarily in black and white, on the varied landscape and people of New Mexico and the American west.
Craig’s new book, “Landscape Dreams, A New Mexico Portrait,” was released on October 1st. Landscape Dreams pays homage to New Mexico’s ancient history and the details of everyday life in ninety beautifully reproduced photographs, accompanied by three essays by well-known New Mexican writers. The photographs were made over the nearly three decades that he has lived and worked in New Mexico, offering a remarkably complete, varied, and original portrait of the state many call the “Land of Enchantment.” Take a look at his portfolio of images, some of which can be found in his new book and on his liveBooks website. The book is available from Amazon.com. Personalized and autographed copies are also available from the photographer’s studio.
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.
You’ll also know Clint when you see him; the depth, contrast, and texture of his work has its own unique cadence. Integrated into both his commercial and personal work is a characteristic style that combines natural and studio-built environments, shot in a manner that is as sharp and graphic as possible.
Should you also hear the crashing noise of wooden pins followed by cheers, that’s Clint, too. To be sure, his passion is photography, but bowling runs a close second. When not shooting for work or pleasure, Clint can be found just a few blocks from his studio trying to add 30 pins to his average.
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.
