Thanks to liveBooks for making it so easy to have a website. With previous websites I had to have a web designer make the updates. It was a painful process. I enjoy my liveBooks site because I am able to manage the content myself – which is essential to my business. I was able to provide my clients real time updates while I was on a shoot in Florida. Now with Scaler my photos are more vivid and easier for clients to see.
liveBooks is exactly what we needed for a new web presence. Being pro photographers themselves they had insight to my unique requirements from the beginning of this project. Images and client references are important to our business and I’m especially delighted with the Custom Testimonials Page leveraging on our concept. It takes our site to the next level with a custom design that does precisely what I envisioned. And being able to have a blog which has the same theme made it so easy. Our blog was live in 24 hours! The fact that liveBooks hosts and supports the WordPress functions is super! Looking forward to many years of collaboration with liveBooks. Thanks again!
If you want to get business as an illustrator and Flash animator, you have to have a powerful, easy-to-navigate portfolio that showcases static images as well as animations. I chose liveBooks to build my website because they understood my vital need to include motion and video, as the need for it grows ubiquitously across the Internet. I’m thrilled that they have partnered with Vimeo to provide pros like myself the ability to present this medium in an easy to manage way via their intuitive editSuite interface. Great job, liveBooks! I can always count on you guys to be one step ahead of the curve!

The interesting use of icons in navigation on Kiyoshi’s website makes it visually very pleasing. The simple colors and graphics convey a minimalist kind of charm. A New York City photographer who specializes in commercial advertising, still life, editorial and fine art photography, Kiyoshi grew up in rural Northern Japan and is the 11th generation of rice farmers. His signature style is a blend of his Japanese aesthetics and sensitivities executed with a Western twist. He favors a rich use of colors, intense blacks, and clean whites.
When you visit Tim’s website, you can’t help but want to visit Tahiti! Tim’s incredible surf and underwater photography is among the best I have ever seen. The pastel tropical colors with a splash of bright orange, plus the use of Tim’s bird of paradise logo in the loading page, not only give the site a professional, modern look, but also enhance his branding in an effective way. Also note how effortlessly Tim promotes his book, poster and print sale in the contact page with links to his storefront site.
Hoffman Noli Design is a graphic design house based in New York City. By nature, the work that they do is visually rich. And so it makes perfect sense that they choose to display a sample of their work on the homepage. You will see their portfolio even before entering the site. Another great design of the homepage is the way they place their navigation. It’s simple and straightforward. However, they cleverly leave that initial navigation behind when you get into the site to make it easier on the user to find their way around.
Rosegallery represents icons like Dorothea Lange, William Eggleston, Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Mark Cohen, Todd Hido, Graciela Iturbide, Martin Parr, and Tomoko Sawada. Check out the artist portfolios and documentation of the latest exhibition. This elegant site is a great example of just how customized a liveBooks site can be.
