Adobe Lightroom Basics Course

Have you seen my Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Basics Course on sale? It’s a great tool for people who are just starting to use Lightroom. To see more detailed information about the course, please click here. I have to admit that my audio isn’t the best so I felt I should give you all a great deal. I did put a lot of time into this course to help you understand Lightroom and feel it’s so worth the money.

This is a fun abstract I took at Lake Tahoe. It’s so easy to get caught up in the beauty of the place as a whole, but when you take time to look at small details your photography will bloom and take on a whole new perspective.

To see the before and after image, please join my new facebook group here.  I also like to talk about the photograph a bit too. I would love it if you participated and shared your behind-the-scenes of an image or just joined in to see the fun.


Kevin has wanted a Copter since they came out. I thought I’d share these with you all. The debate is on the table.

What do You Like in Life? 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 your passions. For example, I love to hike with my husband, but while I’m hiking I really pay attention to details. The rock formation with the rock climber is awesome, don’t get me wrong, but I absolutely go crazy over desert flowers growing between rocks. I also love animals so how can I not photograph a desert chipmunk checking us out while we eat lunch? 🙂 And I can’t forget my love of history. Capturing anything with historical value really floats my boat.

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 conservation groups. I also want others to enjoy what I’ve experienced so I work with the hospitality industry. It’s a good feeling to know that when someone stays in a hotel that they will see my work and feel my passion. 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.

We Love Change – Newsletter Fun

We Love Change!

That’s why we plan to change up things a bit. I’ve decided to keep the blog going since I love connecting with you all, but I’ve also decided to share more newsletters. I’m going to do my best to write up a fun newsletter giving you a variety of information about art, photography and business.

I will always share images because photography is my true love. If you would like to see behind the scenes of what I do while photographing, join my private Facebook Group. It’s a newbie group and I’m hoping others join in and share their behind the scene on how they got their shots. This will give us ideas when we want to try something different as we photograph and for the non photographers out there…they’ll see cool images and how they are made.


On our road trip we stopped in Mono Lake.  I’ll give you more information later but I wanted to share this fun rock formation.  It was a small rock and you know how much I like to get up close so here you go.  This is the B&W version of the two.  To see before and after pics join my new Facebook Group.  😉


2 images merged together.



Awesome sale coming up!




Have a great week,

We Love Change – Newsletter Fun

Thank you LinkedIn Friends

I was so overwhelm when I received tons of messages from my LinkedIn Friends on my work anniversary.   I had so many that I wanted to thank them here too!

Thank you LinkedIn friends! You all are amazing!

I have met so many awesome people there and if you haven’t jumped into the LinkedIn groups, go for it.  It’s a nice way to connect with people and also connect with potential clients.  Join the groups that interest you.  It doesn’t need to be just photography groups.   Join and participate.

If you would like to connect with me there you can click on my social links to the side of this blog or click here.



Quick update:

I’m planing to write short newsletters again.  I would like to share fun art and photography goodies that I’ve found that may interest you.  I feel that the news information will be less about Sullivan J Photography and more about what I find that will help your business and creativity.  I want the newsletter to be short and sweet so we’ll see how it goes and of course always feel free to let me know what you think or want.  Thanks in advance.  🙂



Road trip

Kevin and I had so much fun last week!  We went on a road trip up the 395 in California and ended up in Lake Tahoe.  I haven’t processed the images yet, arrrggg!  But I plan to work on these asap and give you some info that I learned on the trip, some photography and some not photography.

For a teaser…here are some fun iPhone shots I took while road tripping.

MGAPXL Episode 11 – Macro Focus

I was honored to be a guest on the MGAPXL show this past Monday. We had a blast chatting about photography and all the goodies that go along with it :)  You can watch the MGAPXL Episode 11 – Macro Focus here or below.

I really had a fun time chatting with some awesome people. One thing thats great about photography is that I get to meet people from all around the world.

No Poppies : (

In my last post I was really excited to check out the poppy fields here in Southern California because with all the rain we’ve been having you would think there would be hills full of flowers right? Sadly, there was nothing but open fields of dead poppies and grass. There were a few poppies here and there that had sprout out from grass as we drove by, but nothing compared to the fields of golden yellow that I had photographed throughout the previous years.

It’s a site to see…maybe next year?  Hopefully!

I found one small patch. f2.8 with my 70-200mm lens


I’m looking forward to our next road trip soon and will share the fun on my new FB community!  If you have time I would love for you to join our new community, check it out on Facebook here.

Spring Inspiration

On Friday I was invited to our local high school for career day. I thought what the heck, if I can inspire the students to pick up a camera and photograph, why not.

It was really exciting to see some students with their cameras and it was refreshing to know that they really love photography.

Thanks Bonita High School for the invite.  It’s always a pleasure.



Spring is here for us in California. I always rent before I buy my equipment so I figured I’d share some  rentals with you all from Borrowed Lens.

There has finally been rain here in Southern California. I can’t wait to get back to the poppy fields!
