I am a photo + motion rep and producer who has been in business for 27 years. I graduated college with  a still photography degree and went to work in various studios in the Baltimore area before deciding to start my own artist representation company. I was determined and excited at the opportunity to be an emerging resource and link between agency and photography creatives and that seemed like the perfect path for a career. Starting my own business allowed me to balance family and work life on my own terms with return in both areas to be super fulfilling.

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

TW: HMM – that is tough – Simple, Clean or Minimal, Bright or Dynamic, Graceful?

I would say that because of the aesthetics though, the viewer is able to see our ideas, Experience and a Buffet of imagery?

Or I could position it is a Ringleader (me), Performers (the artists), and Applause (our clients)!

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: How do you choose the photos you display on your homepage?

LD: My homepage includes a mix of images that I am particularly fond of plus representation from my documentary stories.

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.

At liveBooks, we’re always looking for ways to improve our website building platform and we are very proud to announce that all liveBooks websites can now take advantage of HTTPS, the most secure protocol available for websites today. Below  you will find more information about SSL Web Hosting and HTTPS and what the added benefits are for both you, your business, and your visitors alike.

What is SSL?

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) creates a private session between a web browser and a website. During the session, the browser and the website use a cipher to encrypt data before sending it to the other party. The website and the browser being used to view it use a decryption key to decipher the data. Without the key, the data looks like a random jumble of letters, numbers, and symbols.

What are the benefits of SSL Web Hosting?

By having SSL, you allow your website and your website’s visitor to communicate and share data without the possibility of someone intercepting and reading the data. This is a great added feature to your website, especially if it gathers personal information such as credit card information, phone numbers, or passwords.

How does SSL benefit users?

There are many network connections between your computer and the websites you view. Your computer sends information to your network router. From there, the information travels through your network router. The information then travels through your broadband modem, your Internet service provider and various network backbones and data centers before finally reaching the website. At any one of these connection junctions, a malicious individual could theoretically intercept and read the transferred data. However, with SSL, reading the information is nearly impossible without the decryption key.

How does SSL benefit website owners?

SSL gives website owners an advantage from both a security and SEO standpoint. Analysis of more than one million search results supports the conclusion that SSL is a fairly strong ranking factor on Google and is steadily becoming more important. Having a HTTPS website shows search engines and web users that you value security above all else.

Web browsers and SSL

In January 2017, Google Chrome began displaying a warning pop-up that let users know when a website they were browsing did not support SSL but asked for personal information, such as passwords and credit card information. Having an SSL-enabled website ensures that your users will never see the “Not Secure” message and allow visitors to make purchases confidently as well as give you personal information needed for transactions. Overall, having an HTTPS website may improve your website’s conversion rates by giving website users a safer website experience.
