  • Thank you, Steph, for referring Janet Gadallah to Art Fair Insiders.
  • Many thanks for your support, Steph!
  • 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.
  • Hi Steph,

    Thanks for your reply. I really like how the frit painting looks; I'd love to see more of it.  It sounds like quite a process to create.  I paint in reverse in layers on the back of the windows, but there is no baking involved.  I'll put more paintings up soon, but we've got a house full of kids and grandkids here this week so there isn't much time.  Thanks again.

  • Hi Steph,

    Welcome!  I looked at your website and you have some beautiful work!  I'm curious to know more about your frit painting.  What exactly is that?  I paint reverse glass and was drawn to the painting of the trees on your website.

    Thanks, and again, Welcome!
