The most important thing to me with respect to my online presence is “does this website best represent me and my work?” Now because of my new website, my answer is a resounding “Yes!”
My liveBooks website has already led to new business. Aside from that one of my favorite things about my site is the interactive homepage – you can see 15 of my images without a single click! How cool is that?
I decided to make the switch to liveBooks nearly two years ago for two reasons. First, I noticed most of the professional photographers I admire (and who are successful) have a liveBooks website. The second reason was SEO. liveBooks puts a lot of effort into giving you the tools necessary to keep your site highly ranked in search engine query results. Knowing that liveBooks has my back allows me the freedom to do what I do best: be a photographer.
I recently re-vamped the face and content of my website to showcase my more recent work and I couldn’t be happier with the results. liveBooks’ customer service is second to none and the process of switching to a brand spanking new Scaler site was seamless. The interface is incredibly easy to work with and the editSuite makes the site a dream to update. I cannot wait to migrate my blog over to liveBooks as well!
Dina focuses her work on editorial and commercial food and food culture photography including restaurants, portraits and architecture. Her style is simple yet refined. She finds the inherent beauty of her subject best revealed with natural light and you’ll often find her in pursuit of the perfect sliver of light with her camera and tripod in hand.
Her fetish for old, tarnished silverware and unfinished, antique wood lends a rustic and warm touch to her food work. When Dina is not working she is working on a personal project or on her culinary blog, Leek Soup, where she cooks, styles, photographs and writes.
My liveBooks website is one of the most important tools (in addition to my photo equipment of course…) used in my business. It allows me to make a living from photography. liveBooks provides me what I need and more!
Shortly after these successful publications, the strong and trusting relationship between Mathieu and his editor opened doors to many photography contracts on different renowned publishing projects, leading him across Quebec and the wide Canadian territory. In between publishing projects, Mathieu maintains a well established full-time career in advertising and covering stories. Throughout the years, he was involved in numerous advertising campaigns such as the Canadian Tourism Commission and Tourisme Québec Government. He is also behind the corporate image of Quebec and Canadian National Parks since nearly 8 years.
Furthermore, he contributes to several periodical magazines such as Géo Plein air, Geographica, Canadian Geographic, Explore, Living with Style Wanderlust UK and Nature’s Best . On September 27th 2010, Mathieu Dupuis received the prestigious mention of “Picture of the day” from the National Geographic Society. Since then, several pictures of his have been added to the National Geographic Image Collection. In addition to this, NIKON has given him the honorable mention to be chosen as one of the 16 emerging talents of 2011 on the occasion of the Nikon Photo Contest International.
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!
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.”
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.

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.
