“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.”
Website: Lucy Nicholson Photography

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.

Andy Smith: Commercial Photographer

Posted by liveBooks

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.

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.

When you look at Tim’s work a story unfolds. Each subject is showcased in a way that enhances the viewers curiosity; is the subject the individual or the setting? Be it skateboards, elephants, or models, the story he elicits never disappoints.

Bruce Farnsworth: Editorial Photographer

Posted by liveBooks

For me, the custom Scaler site is a magical experience. It engages viewers and delivers features tailored to the needs of a working photographer. I have the confidence of knowing that my work is accessible on any device, from iPhones to massive LCDs. It’s great to go large. One editor confessed that she found herself so attracted to the detail in the Scaler images that she reached out to ‘touch the animals’.

Bruce’s clients include National Geographic, Smithsonian, Nature Conservancy, CondeNast and Discovery magazines as well as Fodor’s Travel Guides, Harcourt Brace and Taylor & Francis publishers, among others.

liveBooks has played a vital roll in the evolution of my business. Given the highly competitive nature of our industry, I felt it was very important to present my work in the most professional and clean format possible. Options like HD video using Vimeo and customization to integrate branding materials has made my website the best marketing dollars I have spent. It’s simple and it works.

I had an existing liveBooks site that was really successful, but after 5 years it was time to upgrade it to a Scaler site. Ryan and Adam from liveBooks’ in-house design team are great collaborators. They built me a site that stayed true to my brand, and that’s also fresh in design and functionality.

Photographer David Emmite’s six-year-old “What if?…” imagination sparks his experiments in photography: “What if animals were hardwired to machines?” “What if you could make a zero-gravity energy field?” “What if robots were homeless?” David trained in Atlanta at the Portfolio Center and assisted in New York before eventually landing in Portland, Oregon where he started his own studio in 1996.

His clients include HBO, Pacifico Beer, Progressive Insurance, Gatorade, Nike and many more. His work has been recognized by Communication Arts Photo Annual, Graphis Photo Annual, Archive 200 Best Ad Photographers Annual, The One Show and Photo District News “30 Photographers Under 30.”

When I began thinking about my website, I had broad conceptual ideas
about the look, feel and function of my site, but it was the collaboration
between myself and the design team that let me turn the ideas into a fully
functioning, unique website that spoke to my brand.

I chose a liveBooks Scaler website for the big images, ease of use and the integration with Vimeo. I also knew I could start with a predesigned website template and then customize it to make it my own. There are SO many decisions to be made concerning a website that it can become overwhelming to the point of not beginning at all. So to start with a well designed site that has had a lot of thought put into it and having the ability to personalize it to my taste and needs, made liveBooks an obvious choice for me.

The first response I get from people looking at the site is “love the big images”. Personally I love the intuitive navigation. It is important that you do not have to search around the perimeter of the page to figure out how to navigate the site. I specifically chose a template that had the navigation roughly where I wanted it – on the right side and at the bottom – and then made minor adjustments to make the site my own.

I love the collaboration with Vimeo. Being able to connect to a proven host where I already know the workflow has made integrating video into my site SO easy. And the viewer experience is awesome.

I try to be present in all of the obvious places and portals that art buyers will be looking. All of those places just redirect to my liveBooks website as it has a strong impact. It is important for buyers to instantly know what I do – and they can tell the moment they visit my site. My liveBooks website has made it easy for me to have a successful online presence that allows me to focus on creating new work.
