Posts Tagged: Portfolio Landing Page

We built our first site with liveBooks in 2006.  3 versions later, with a full re-redesign just launched, we’re starting to receive great compliments on the site’s overall design story, clean interface and seamless user experience. Our liveBooks site does exactly what it’s supposed to do - it simply and elegantly shows off the images we capture. The liveBooks editSuite is simple to use, which makes it easy for our team to jump in and update portfolios on any current project. We can rest easy knowing we’ll always have the most up to date tools at our fingertips because liveBooks is always building better features into the site’s capabilities. Overall, we couldn’t be happier with our new website and look forward to continuing our partnership with liveBooks in the years to come.

Several months back, after a long discussion with a few colleagues, I decided it was time to update my website. I was looking for something that would better represent my vision as a photographer now and in the years to come. It was also very important to me that my new site be very clean, elegant and showcase the work prominently. The search for a design team that would help me realize my vision quickly led me to liveBooks. Though I was hesitant at first to make the switch, the more time I spent with them the more at ease I felt. I’ll admit, some of my requests were a bit specific at times, but they somehow always found a way to create something better than I had ever dreamt of. And I couldn’t be happier with the results!

Carlos Ehlert: The Sultan of Spin

Posted by liveBooks

My liveBooks website is plug and play. It is super easy to modify and make changes to my site whenever I want no matter where I am in the world. I love that so many clients from all over the world have been able to find me.

Carlos is a talented photographer and spends the majority of his time traveling to remote, beautiful, locations to surf and capture images. He has been on the road for a few years in places like Indonesia, Central America, South America, and India. He has spent some time in The Himalayas photographing, exploring, and studying with Buddhist monks. He was born in raised in Guatemala, one of the most crime-riddled places in the Americas, and to make it even more dangerous, he has blonde hair that makes him stick out like a sore thumb.

Carlos went school to become an architect and had a great job waiting for him when he graduated college. It was his dream job with the only sustainable architecture firm in the region. They offered him a partnership opportunity. According to Carlos, upon graduating from college, “a mind flip drove him to look for the truth of happiness and the truth of himself.” Instead of “sitting, working, and waiting for life to finish,” he gave up everything, sold all his material possessions, put the cash in his pocket, and boarded a plane and took off for destnations unknown to “target harmony, happiness, and truth.”

I have used liveBooks for the better part of 6 years for my commercial lifestyle and advertising photography website. I can’t imagine using anything else. I love the clean design and the fact that it is so easy to use. I have also taken advantage of liveBooks SEO capabilities - which has doubled my web traffic!

I worked with the designers at liveBooks to design my custom Scaler website and I couldn’t be happier with the results. The design team was quick and put in the extra time to make sure my site was everything I imagined. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend liveBooks to anyone looking for a superior photography website.

Mike Henry got his B.F.A. in Photography from Columbia College in Chicago. After years of portrait and business editorial, in both New York and Chicago, Mike packed his bags for sunny Los Angeles where he rebuilt his portfolio and began his career as a commercial lifestyle and advertising photographer. Mike’s work is fun, energetic, clean and sometimes leans towards quirky. The kids love him and adults feel at ease in front of his lens.

Mike now spends his time back and forth between L.A. and N.Y. shooting for advertising, editorial and fashion apparel clients. When not behind the camera you can find Mike enjoying the California beach lifestyle just outside Los Angeles in Santa Monica.

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.

Jim lives and works bi-coastal in New York and Los Angeles, but the majority of his time is spent in exotic locations around the globe. He shoots pictures for advertising campaigns, fashion editorials and celebrities. Growing up as a skater and surfer in sunny, Southern California, Jim spent his high school days scouting models and finding the next great faces of the coming generation. With a passion for beauty and styling, Jim quickly became a highly respected hair and makeup artist, traveling the world and working with the biggest actors, actresses and supermodels of the time, such as Cindy Crawford, Elizabeth Taylor, Sophia Loren, and Farrah Fawcett. He worked with the world’s best photographers, such as Herb Ritts, Peter Lindbergh, Steve Meisel, and Patrick Demarchelier, to name a few, and after many years of behind the scenes experience as a hair and makeup artist, Jim picked up a camera and immediately developed his own unique style as a photographer. Jim now shoots celebrities such as Leonardo Dicaprio, Drew Barrymore, Charlize Theron, and Marisa Miller. Jim’s clients include Vogue, Vanity Fair, Elle, and Marie Claire. He also directs and shoots seamless campaigns for clients such as Mercedes Benz, J Crew, American Express, and Warner Brothers.

We’ve been liveBooks customers for over 5 years. So when we started our re-branding project last year we knew we wanted stay with liveBooks for our main web presentation. Our friend J Sandifer and the entire liveBooks design team worked tirelessly (and patiently) with us and our brand designer, Melanie Halim, for several months while we perfected and incorporated the new brand design in our upgraded custom liveBooks website.
We love the flexibility the liveBooks editSuite gives us and how easy the editSuite is to use! That coupled with great customer service and tech support will keep us liveBooks clients for quite some time to come. Thanks liveBooks!

Brian and Gry’s love of and passion for photography really shows in their wedding work. They’ve done a wonderful job incorporating their brand onto their website.

Having a custom website was important to me because it allowed me to develop a strong brand identity through the use of logotype and subtle design cues. My previous site was a mess, and changing images and portfolios was very difficult for me to achieve with out help from a programmer.
The implementation of my liveBooks site has helped me create a professional presence online as well as giving me the tools to edit and change my site with ease and efficiency. The end result is that I have increased traffic and have added new clients since my site went live.

Rhoni Epstein and Tina Kromer love photographers and photography. They help them obtain what they want. Rhoni has a proven ability to find interesting assignments that inspire their photographers. Her philosophy is that when photographers create their very best images from within the right clients will find them.

I’ve been delighted with the end result of our site. My support specialist worked closely with me to create a distinctive look and feel for the site that matched my vision, and showcases our work. It wasn’t easy and we went through a series of revisions, but the end result was worth it. The team was responsive and we’re very happy with the results. I like the fact that it will be easy to update and expand the site in the future.

Check out the photo of Paul on his “Bio” page…it says everything. This site has an interesting feature on the homepage as well: enter in a term like “elephant” in the search field. It will take that term and send it to an existing online archive Paul has elsewhere. Also notice the additional flash customization Paul used for portfolio navigation.
