Prior to committing, I called liveBooks with a few questions. I spent almost an hour on the phone with Patrick, one of the customer support representatives. It’s funny, most of us (including myself) don’t really take customer service into consideration until after a purchase. Comments and feedback are usually left for negative experiences. But Patrick and the rest of the support team have been overwhelmingly helpful, going above and beyond anything I expected. They spent additional time with me reviewing websites, discussing options and and offering suggestions. And not just on website design but on marketing as a whole. In addition, the changes I made were updated almost immediately. I’ve never experienced a team so eager to help. When we were done, they even invited me over to their office in California!
liveBooks and their support team allowed me to take my idea of what a portfolio site should be and turned it into a reality. Almost instantly. liveBooks is clearly the best solution out there. My only regret is that I didn’t find them sooner!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.”
Lisa’s clients include: Marie Claire, Newsweek, Axe Body Spray, The Chicago Tribune, Ladies Home Journal, WIRED, Yoga Journal, Perforce Software, VENICE and Resource Magazine.
When we decided to launch the new and improved Fivecat.com, our priorities were the presentation of our photos and how our prospective clients would best view our work. With a well-developed social context built with Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and multiple blogs, our website is integral to our web presence as a dedicated online portfolio. 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. They exceeded our expectations and our projects look fantastic.
…and, if that wasn’t enough…
