Teaching on Curious.com

I’m so excited about teaching on Curious.com!  I received an email from Dara saying, “I really enjoyed your Adobe software lessons and want to discuss bringing you on board as a teacher at Curious.com”, so I checked out the site and liked the format.  I’ve just started with them, so this really isn’t a review, but I figured I would add it to that section on our website and update you as I learn more. The video tutorials here are broken up into segments with questions for you to answer.  Some tutorials are free and others are not.  If you have questions,  you can easily email the teacher. Here is some info from their website: Mission Statement Our mission is to connect lifelong learners with the world 19s best teachers (of anything).

What do you like: Photograph it!

What do you like: Photograph it!

What do you like in life?  Think about it and then photograph it or the concept of your passion.  Photography is not only for the visual experience in life but it can be a documentation of what you are passionate about.  For example, I love to hike with my husband but while I’m hiking I really pay attention to details.  The rock formation is awesome don’t get me wrong but I absolutely go crazy…

What do you like in life?  Think about it and then photograph it or the concept of your passion.  Photography is not only for the visual experience in life but it can be a documentation of what you are passionate about.  For example, I love to hike with my husband but while I’m hiking I really pay attention to details.  The rock formation is awesome don’t get me wrong but I absolutely go crazy over a desert flower growing between the rocks.   I love animals so how can I not photograph a desert chipmunk checking us out while we eat lunch.  :) These are personal photographs that make ME smile and that is what life is about…the experience!  I am a tree hugger because of my passion so I’m affiliated with several conservations.  Once you see the variety of photographs that you have accumulated take the next step and figure out what you can do with your passion.   JoshuaTree-4451-ToneMap copy     desert-flower8366Sullivan J Photography   Just a bit of inspiration for the day.  :) Cheers, Janice Sullivan

Thank You Bonita High

Last week I was invited to take part in Career Day at Bonita High in La Verne, California.

Thank you Bonita High School for the invite!  I had a blast talking to students about the photography industry.  Unfortunately, it was so busy I didn’t get any photographs with the students.  :(    The high school gave me this fun certificate and supplied us with food and drink.

Last week I was invited to take part in Career Day at Bonita High in La Verne, California. Thank you Bonita High School for the invite!  I had a blast talking to students about the photography industry.  Unfortunately, it was so busy I didn’t get any photographs with the students.  :(    The high school gave me this fun certificate and supplied us with food and drink.   BonitaHS-2465   I gave a power point presentation asking questions after each section.   Yes, to get them to talk I needed candy, lol! Here is the PDF of my presentation if you’re interested:  BonitaCareerDay2014.  It’s interesting when you really need to think about what you do and how to present it to the younger generation.  I had help from Ashley…she’s amazing when it comes to presentations…her business skills really come out!  A huge thanks to her too!  When the students asked questions and came up to me after the presentation I felt revived.  Maybe it was all that young blood generating… :)   Bonita High Presentation   Here is one of the slides from the presentation: Photography advice   Do any of you give presentations to the high school realm? I would love tips from you. :) Hope you all are having a great week! Cheers, Janice Sullivan

It’s Been Fun Agency Access

It’s been fun Agency Access but it’s time for us to part. Agency Access is a full service marketing company for artists.    I actually really like this company and feel you should check them out if you’re interested in selling your images to companies.  I’m leaving because they do cater more to the Commercial photographer and I have strayed away from that sector in the business.  They do have a fine art area if you’re interested in checking that out, but again it’s not for SJP any longer.  So let me give you a bit of Pros and Cons on the Company to help you decide if they fit your needs. Pros
  • A buyers Database of 90,000+
  • Easy email templates with promo tracking
  • Easy print promos & mailing
Cons
  • Geared for Commercial Photographers
  • Competition High - Buyers are bombarded with promos
  • Can be expensive
  Below will be my last email promo using Agency Access.    Last email from agency access     Again, they are a great company and will help you especially if you have the money!   Anytime I had any questions they were on it fast. So if you’re a Commercial Photographer I say go for it!  If not, think twice before you pay for a large annual contract. Cheers, Janice Sullivan
