Lorrie Dallek

I started in photography 30 years ago. My introduction was casual through a friend. It continued with me taking weekend and nightly seminars while doing a full-time job in another field. I also combine photography with some of my greatest interests: culture, travel, and the welfare of women and children. After leaving my job in the corporate world 13 years ago, I decided to pursue my true passion, photography. I graduated from the Image Program of and Advertising School, The Creative Circus in Atlanta. For a while I did Commercial Photography work but migrated to my real love, documentary and social documentary work. Today I focus on creating photo stories on these topics…


Q: How would you describe the aesthetic of your website in three words?

LD: Color, Design, Visually Appealing.

Q: How often do you typically update your website?

LD: I update my website whenever I have new work that I want to share. Although my updated website is currently published, I am still combing through it to add/delete images & optimize the color & contrast and consistency in sizing…

Q: What is your favorite new feature of liveBooks8?

LD: I am truly enjoying the ability to have different layouts on my different pages. I think that it helps me to share my single images in the strongest possible presentation where I use a grid while presenting my documentary stories in a sequential manner with the edit that I perceive is the strongest.

Q: What’s one piece of advice you’d offer to someone designing their website?

LD: Pick a given size for your horizontal, vertical and square images and consistently apply the same size across your entire site. I am not certain if a Designer would agree with me but I perceive that this will help to create a stronger total presentation. Experiment with the different design options to learn what is most visually pleasing to you & complimentary to your work and intent.

Additionally, I am very excited to share my most recent Social Documentary story titles Becoming American (now re-titled New Americans on my website and published as a 13 image story in the Atlanta Journal Constitution, March 2017.
