Janice Moses Represents

Posted by liveBooks

I am thankful for my relationship with liveBooks – and it grows because of the opportunities and exchanges we have. They gave us the tools and the technology, coaching and support to reinvent the way we do business. The ability to integrate Vimeo changes everything. I am very happy to invest in all the work done by the liveBooks team. Some people go to school to learn, I went to liveBooks.

“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.”

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.

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’.

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.
