Our Story...

janice sullivan owner of sjp

Hi!  I’m Janice Sullivan from Southern California and I am a Macro and Landscape photographer that loves to help other photographers think out of the box and challenge themselves and to be accountable for their goals.

I know how it feels to be stagnant with my work, to want more for my photography.   Been there done that!

So I created the SJP membership program with my daughter Ashley for those of you who want to push further with your skills and to tell your story to the world. We want to help you remove the crappy feeling, where the inner critic is saying that you’re a terrible photographer because you’re not!  We want you to pick up your camera again with excitement and to “see” differently.

Our membership program breaks the barriers of conformity and pushes you outside your comfort zone. We help photographers who are all over the place…that needs accountability to move forward with their photography. We do this with our Photographer’s Road Map and live calls.  We also have courses for you if you’re not ready to really dive into a program and we have a bunch of freebie tips and tutorials in our blog.

I have worked with magazines, art buyers, interior designers, and licensed images to the hospitality industry & art printing companies. My work is on EnLive Smart TV app on Google TV, Samsung Smart Hub, Yahoo TV and ROKU devices available to 91 million Internet streaming devices.  I have taught at Curious.com and was a Master Photographer at The Arcanum mentoring fine art macro and landscape photographers.  I have also been in photography art shows and through all of this I know how hard it is to be noticed within the sea of other photographers out there,  but if I can do it…so can you!  It’s all about sharing your 1000 words to the people that want to listen.

If you would like to grab update on what we’ve been up too and when our blog posts go out click here and sign up if you’re not part of our email list.

Have a great day!


We focus on helping Macro and Landscape Photographers push their creations and be accountable.  Are you a squirrel…all over the place?  If so, we’ll help you focus to learn, create and share your work to the world!
