My liveBooks website is plug and play. It is super easy to modify and make changes to my site whenever I want no matter where I am in the world. I love that so many clients from all over the world have been able to find me.

Carlos is a talented photographer and spends the majority of his time traveling to remote, beautiful, locations to surf and capture images. He has been on the road for a few years in places like Indonesia, Central America, South America, and India. He has spent some time in The Himalayas photographing, exploring, and studying with Buddhist monks. He was born in raised in Guatemala, one of the most crime-riddled places in the Americas, and to make it even more dangerous, he has blonde hair that makes him stick out like a sore thumb.

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.”

I chose liveBooks because of their great platform and easy-to-use interface. With the combined help of the talented liveBooks designer Ryan Mahar and the photo editing/web content help provided by my photography marketing consultant Carolyn Potts, I now have a great new website. The response from my clients has been very positive, so much so that my new site just won the “Peoples Choice Award” for web design at a local architecture group’s annual awards event.

I have had a website presence with liveBooks for some time. The introduction of Scaler has greatly enhanced the presentation of my imagery, particularly my botanical work. Scaler allows for magnificent clarity, depth and color. The images are stunning! It is just one more tool to reach the marketplace effectively.

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.

Robert’s natural affinity for the arts and the natural world as a youth, particularly botanicals, led to a three year study of biology and environmental science at Alma College. This interest evolved further as a student in the Applied and Fine Art Photography program at the celebrated College for Creative Studies in Detroit, Michigan. Graduation was followed by a career in advertising photography, primarily in the automotive industry, with a national and international client base. However, Robert maintained his sensitivity to the intricacies of the natural world and continued to explore its magnificence.

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.

In December 2008, my website was in need of a serious makeover. After extensive research I decided to invest in a liveBooks website. The customer support was excellent throughout the entire set-up process and the intuitive drag-and-drop interface of the liveBooks editSuite made uploading my portfolio a breeze.

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 have used liveBooks for the better part of 6 years for my commercial lifestyle and advertising photography website. I can’t imagine using anything else. I love the clean design and the fact that it is so easy to use. I have also taken advantage of liveBooks SEO capabilities - which has doubled my web traffic!

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.

I am thankful for my relationship with liveBooks – and it grows because of the opportunities and exchanges we have. They gave us the tools and the technology, coaching and support to reinvent the way we do business. The ability to integrate Vimeo changes everything. I am very happy to invest in all the work done by the liveBooks team. Some people go to school to learn, I went to liveBooks.

Janice Moses Represents proudly offers artist representation with a positive vibe and a personal touch. Representing some of the best photographers, stylists and CGI artists she understands the entire process. See how still and motion come together in this beautifully designed website.

“When I first had a website I was freelance, and my liveBooks site was an invaluable way of promoting my business. Now that I’m on staff with Reuters it serves as a portfolio for my images, which helps me see how my work is developing and inspires me to constantly try to learn and improve as a photographer. I like that I’m able to change and update my portfolios simply and quickly. My liveBooks site has also opened up speaking and interview opportunities.”

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.

Two years ago I relocated to London. I was concerned that my site would drop down Google search rankings because London is obviously a very competitive market. A few months ago my site made it on page one of Google searches for five of the keyword phrases I wanted it to appear under. My top listings are: Editorial Photographer London (#1 on Page 1.) Advertising Photographer London (#2 on Page 1.) Commercial Photographer London (#3 on Page 1.) Since I started to appear on page one I’ve received a noticeable increase in inquiries coming through my website. On top of great service, great design, and the ability to update my site in seconds, I know that my liveBooks site is being seen, which is obviously what it is all about.

Before devoting his energies to photography, Andy traveled the world. When I ask him why he decided to become a professional photographer he recalls a defining moment in his travels through India. A scene still sticks in his mind of seeing children washing up in toxic water in the slums of Mumbai; in the background of the image is one of India’s premier 5-star hotels. Seeing this juxtaposition, Andy felt compelled to capture this story and knew that there were more of these 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.

I was attracted to the liveBooks platform for my website because of its dynamic, clean and highly visual format. As an interior designer, visual impact was most important to me in deciding which web platform to use for my new website; as a small business owner affordability and ease of use was also critical. liveBooks met all of those priorities. We update our website often as new products and jobs need to be featured. liveBooks’ “lightbox” makes it incredibly easy to change, update and create new content for our website. We are very happy with the result and appreciate working with liveBooks as a partner so that we can continue using our website to grow our business.
