Christian Library Partner

I am honored that Terrence Lovett, CEO of Christian Library on Demand, asked Sullivan J Photography to partner with his organization. He stated that their EnLive Smart TV app on Google TV, Samsung Smart Hub, Yahoo TV and soon ROKU devices is available to 91 million Internet streaming devices. If you know SJP, you know that we typically work with interior designers and various art buyers for the hospitality industry and large corporate offices. When approached about this new opportunity, I thought it would be a great opportunity to offer Fine Art Photography to the public in a different way. I love art, and to have my images offered to a variety of individuals who personally want them, is very exciting. All images will be signed by me with a certificate of authenticity. At this moment there is no limit on the number of times an image can be purchased, but I will remove an image if I feel too many have been ordered. These images are not snapshots. I work hard on my art, and want them to be special for each individual who purchases them. There will be no mass production here. :) Christian Library on Demand wrote an amazing press release that I’d like to share with you all. You can read it here here or download the PDF here: Christian Library on Demand PartnerPR. This is a small blurb on their website, but to read more about me and Christian Library on Demand, check out the link above or download the pdf.

Canon Lenses and Big Bear Lake

This is short and sweet! Sharing a bit of a sweetness here. Yep, I’m being corny but here you go… Most of you know that I’m a Canon user. Canon reduced the price of some of their lenses and I wanted to share them with you. Click here or on the image to check out these and more. All I can say is sweet; thanks Canon!

Of course I have to share my latest adventure. Kevin and I had an amazing time hiking in Big Bear, California. This is our fast get away place when we need a break from the fast pace of Southern California. It’s awesome to smell the pine trees and fresh air up high on the mountain. Below is one of my sunset shots from the trip. :) [caption id=”attachment_7414” align=”aligncenter” width=”800”]Pink Sunset BB Pink Sunset BB - ISO 100 0.5 at f11 HDR[/caption] Where do you go when you need a break? I’d love to read about it in the comments. Cheers, Janice Find me on Google+

Gerber Daisies

Wow, it’s been a week already!  Time is just a flying…  :) I just signed a nice contract with a company so I’ve been working on that but for now let’s show you some of my fun work with Gerber Daisies.  I always say when you start to photograph a subject stand back and shoot.  Pay attention to what you like within the subject and then start getting closer and closer.  Grab a Macro lens or add a filter lens.  If you’re really into it go for an extension tub or a reverse ring adapter.
