Membership's Photography Road Map


Helping to push you out of your comfort zone to learn new ways on how to express yourself with YOUR photography and business goals. We will explore various techniques with post-production, playing with your camera and looking in detail setting up your business.


The heart of the membership!  We will meet up and answer your photography and business questions.  Submit your photography and business work for feedback. This is where the group helps each other LIVE.  If you’re up for it come on in and jump on the live call with me!


Yep, when you see a course, tutorial, monthly challenge, and live workshop… you’ll see a bonus that will take you closer to your goals.  Bonuses are only for AFSer Monthly Members, they will not be sold to the public.  Monthly members are special to us and because you’re awesome… we want to give back to you!  


Workshops are the best way to see behind the scenes…but if you can’t make it, that’s ok.  If you have questions you can ask before the workshop and you’ll receive an email going straight to your question! No need to watch the complete workshop, BUT we hope you can make it LIVE, they are a fun way to work as a group.

Why I created SJP's Membership AFS'ers

Hi!  I’m Janice Sullivan and I am a Macro and Landscape photographer that loves to help others to think out of the box and challenge themselves.

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

So I created this membership for those of you who want to push further with your skills and to tell your story to the world. I want to help you remove the crappy feeling, where the inner critic is saying that you’re a terrible photographer because you’re not!  I 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.

The Photography Road Map provides TRAINING to level up your skills.  You also receive Bonuses with PRESETS, TEXTURES and other goodies just for our paid members to break the horrible feeling of being stagnant, and…   COACHING, which is the key to our membership with Live Calls and Monthly Challenges to help you with accountability.

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 and I am Master Photographer at The Arcanum mentoring fine art macro and landscape photographers.  I have 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!

So let’s rock it together!


Thank you, Janice, for all your help, you are such an inspiration. Love your images and how you always share your knowledge with us, and of course your always smiling face. My photography has evolved greatly after knowing you.

Janice Sullivan did a tremendous job helping improve my skills as a photographer. She is a great motivator!! I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to improve their photography skills!

Adventures of the f-Stop group has changed my business. For years I have been struggling with product photography and searching for the elusive perfect class, course or tutorial. I am a creator + maker and definitely not a photographer.

I was absolutely giddy when I discovered Janice’s AFS group. It is the perfect mix of macro and landscape photography. Because of the macro focus, I have learned so many valuable skills in the area of not only product photography but also tips and tricks for using my DSLR camera.

Through the super supportive Facebook group and Janice’s truly amazing live calls, I have discovered that I CAN take my own professional product photos. She is incredibly positive and offers helpful critiques, tips, and tutorials to get us where we want to be. I am definitely an AFS member for life!

Lately I’ve been having a blast on YouTube! Meeting new photography lovers is another excitement added to my photography passion. When I joined YouTube I challenged myself to be in front of the camera and I’m so glad I did. I really love to talk shop (even when it’s a taped video)! 😉 The family and friends don’t care what f-stop I used or how I use a variety of lighting to get the shot I want, but that’s ok because now I have you and my YouTube friends.

Below are some of the latest videos you may enjoy.

To help me promote my YouTube fun I’m having a giveaway.
