Competitive Image: Editorial, commercial and event sports photography

Posted by liveBooks FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

After seven years of having to work with developers to make changes to my website I was ready for something different. Not only did I want to be able to manage the content myself, I wanted an updated look and feel. I was drawn to the liveBooks platform by some of the best photographers in the business. Once I explored all their options I decided to go with a predesigned website template and then I added some bells and whistles. I feel like I got a lot of bang for my buck! And I did not have to compromise on the design or the functionality of my site. The set-up process was intuitive and the support team was very responsive.

My liveBooks website has already led to new business. Aside from that one of my favorite things about my site is the interactive homepage – you can see 15 of my images without a single click! How cool is that?

    Great website! How did he go from being an accountant, to traveling with the women’s soccer team as photographer?

    Hi Noah and thanks for the comment.

    Needless to say, it was not a direct route from accounting to shooting soccer with the Women’s National Team, but to paraphrase a conversation with a friend of mine, when he said, it was like I was an overnight success, I told him, yup with only 32 years of practice, I became an overnight success.

    Specifically with regard to soccer, in 2007 I had already been shooting for the Minnesota Thunder an “A-League” soccer team for 5 years and had gotten to know several people at The US Soccer Federation. It really helps to both work hard and get lucky!

    Follow me on Twitter and on my Blog and hopefully you will get some insights!
