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.

Our success is contingent on the layout and delivery of our architectural images; liveBooks gave us the tools and support that best showcases our craft.

liveBooks has been a great solution for me. My work needs to be seen large and the new liveBooks Scaler website allows me to maximize my image size. Most of my images are shot with a medium format panoramic camera thus the large image size allows clients and gallery owners to see the detail in my work. In addition, my website gives the gallery owners that represent my work the ability to choose and select images for shows and for their clients.I have been with liveBooks since 2005 and have enjoyed the ability to call upon the expert support as my business needs have grown and developed. The liveBooks team has been efficient, friendly, professional, and helpful with design ideas. The ability to easily change the content on my site allows me to spend my time focused on my business and my art. I appreciate having liveBooks as my technology partner.

Steven Friedman was born in 1964 in Ottawa, Canada. It was not until he found an SLR camera on an autumn hiking adventure in the Gatineau Park that he took his first photograph. This new craft quickly became his passion and before long he established himself as a respected fine art photographer. Steven considers himself to be a purist; his approach is to capture untouched natural beauty with a large format camera. He does not believe in any manipulation of his images. All of Steven’s images are full frame from the camera and are not cropped. The is a great example of how panoramic work can be beautifully displayed online.

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.

Having an amazing website is crucial to starting a new business. Since the inception of my new product line everyone has asked me one simple question: “What is your story?” Your website is your PLATFORM! It is a place for you to answer questions about your business. Who are you, what do you look like, where are you from, what inspired your product, where can you buy it, how much is it, and what is your INTENTION?

I chose liveBooks for several reasons. I was able to create the website quickly and it was very cost effective for a starting a new business. I have a lot of creative control as well as control over managing the content efficiently. Communicating my intention was easy and there is potential to grow the website quickly. I love being able to integrate the site with social media (facebook, twitter, etc….) AND… liveBooks has an awesome support team!!!

Doug Baird: Contemplative drawing

Posted by liveBooks

It is important to me that my website is able to display large, detailed images of my digitally compiled artwork, and with the liveBooks Scaler website, I feel comfortable that visitors will be seeing a closer approximation to the finished art. The lightbox and other website editing tools are a joy, and using a pre-existing liveBooks template allowed me to spend the time and money on my art, instead of website development.
Website: www.dougbairdart.com
Doug was born in Brooklyn, New York and received a BFA from Rhode Island School of Design. After spending 10 years in the magazine and ceramic screen printing industry, he was hired by a marketing company and worked in both corporate finance and product development. In 2007, he moved to Lansing, NY and began combining drawing, painting, photography, and computer processing to produce layered images, which have been shown locally in many galleries and juried exhibits. Last year Doug received fiscal sponsorship from the New York Foundation for the Arts for the Idea Enhancement Project, which explores the use of visual imagery to promote creative thought. 2011 marks the beginning of a period of more intuitive and dream driven artwork – building on the analytical pieces of the last several years.

liveBooks is a trusted website partner. Their websites are beautiful and high functioning which beautifully presents my work. I recently upgraded to Scaler, and now I can display larger images. I love that potential clients can view my portfolio anywhere – even on their smart phones and iPads. The entire liveBooks support team is a pleasure to work with; professional, focused, responsive, and timely. It’s great to share such large, clear images with consumers and tastemakers around the world.
