What is your website?


What are the best things about art fairs

The people. Taking my art directly to my customer! Being self employed and creating beautiful things.

Best show ever and why

Ann Arbor Summer Fair, Ann Arbor, Michigan - Still a great show. Hard to do - long hots, crazy weather. I have a great customer base. I love seeing them evry year!

Worst show ever and why

Wells Street in Chicago.....Difficult set up....and was robbed. It's a drunk fest with only a handful of people interested in the arts.

  • 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.

  • Welcome to ArtFairInsiders.com, Char. It is such a pleasure to me to find old friends joining the site, especially ones with such great knowledge of art fairs. I look forward to seeing you here since we are no longer doing the art fairs. Ditto on your comments on Wells Street above.

    A happy new year to you and Frank.
