Rejection??? No, not really!

A few days I got a rejection letter for a show in my home town that I have been doing for the past few years. It was a real heartbreaker for me! I mean, its literally less than a mile from my home, (I ride my bike) and lots of people show up to see our latest work. Its not a huge money maker, but its not bad either, since our cost are minimal.  Anyway, I wrote an email to the organization and the new director,(something I never do) telling them how very disappointed I was and how sad the…See More

Pensacola art in the park?

Posted on January 28, 2014 at 10:50pm 2 Comments

Has anyone participated in this show in the past couple of years. The only info I could find on attendance was from 2010 and it was only about 1000. Thanks so much for any insights.

Delray Affair

Did anyone do the Delray Affair in 2012? Could only find reviews for 2011 and they weren't great but one was hopeful for a turnaround in 2012.

I started my photography business in 2008.  Shortly after starting my business I started shooting alphabet letters of architecture and other objects found in urban settings.  These letters can be used to spell words, or names to make contemporary art for you home.  This project took off, and became an overwhelming success.  I used the money from selling my alphabet letters to fund my photography business.  These letters are fantastic sellers and I’m thankfully too busy with my real passion to have time to sell them anymore.  So I’ve decided to sell the high resolution digital files for a fair price to the right person who is interested in making an abundance of extra income.  This idea will be unique to you, and if you're driven will make you lots of money.  The market is enormous!  If you’re interested and would like to discuss things further please contact me atshane@reedphoto.ca and please check out our alphabet photography atwww.reedphoto.ca click on “client” menu and enter the password “abc”.  We have b&w and color alphabets, and I’ve also custom created numerous word art pieces with quotes.  You’d receive everything with unlimited reproduction rights.  The letters can be put on anything you can think of or you can sell them just as letters to go in frames.  I always just sold them as letters for $5 per letter.  The profit margin is very high as it costs about 10-20 cents to print each letter and they sell for $5 each.  I look forward to hearing from you.
