liveBooks' Clients Make a Splash as Presenters at Pictage Partner Conference 2008

Professionals' Workshops Create Foundation for Free Webinar Series for Wedding Photographers

SAN FRANCISCO , CA--(Marketwire - September 30, 2008) - As a result of an exciting contribution by its photographer clients at Pictage Partner Conference 2008, liveBooks, Inc. (www.livebooks.com), the leading provider of customized websites and marketing software for professional photographers, has announced the creation of a Webinar Series for Wedding Photographers based on workshops presented by those talented professionals at the event.

The annual conference, which was held on Sept. 9 and 10 in Los Angeles, Calif., showcased 10 liveBooks' photography clients as speakers and, in an effort to share their insight with members of the photo community who could not attend the conference, liveBooks is offering those educational seminars as webinars starting this November. By visiting liveBooks' Web site at http://www.livebooks.com/promo/wedding_webinars/, interested parties can view clips from Pictage Partner Conference 2008 and interviews with the presenters, hear more about their seminars, review the schedule and register for the webinars.

"Having liveBooks and our shared clients involved in this event was a natural fit because both liveBooks and Pictage share a passion for educating and empowering photographers and helping them learn to become successful business people," said Pictage Founder and CEO Jason Kiefer.

Pictage Partner Conference is an annual event created by Pictage to help its wedding and portrait photography clients to learn, network and grow their businesses.
