Meet John Scott of JPS PhotoArt

Today we’d like to introduce you to John Scott.

Thanks for sharing your story with us John. So, let’s start at the beginning, and we can move on from there.
I’ve always loved sunsets. That passion grew into a desire to somehow capture those special moments. It wasn’t until a little over two years ago I got a “real camera” and quit trying to snap photos with my phone camera.

Very quickly after that, I began to get positive feedback from friends as I posted some of my sunset images on social media. Then, and it seemed crazy to me at the time, people started asking me if I was willing to sell any of my photo art. I started selling canvas prints to friends and then friends of those friends.

About six months ago, I launched a website and aligned new Instagram and Facebook profiles to go with it. Now I’m having conversations with people all over the world who are interested in my photo art.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
I discovered very soon there was a huge learning curve to photography, editing and eventually developing a website. My free time was consumed with making the best possible art I could while learning every step of the way.

Photography is not my primary career. I’m the Pastor of a church, which is quite time-consuming in itself. However, doing a blog on our church website that focuses on an image and a verse three days a week has been a huge catalyst for my growth as a photographer.

I committed to the process one month after getting my first “real camera,” and I feel like this blog has been the biggest help for me to grow and develop in this unique art form.

The greatest challenge my wife and I faced also created for me some additional time to work on my photography. My wife chose to help her sister in a health crisis.

When she began to be more and more involved, she was gone 3-5 days a week for months. It was during this time I decided to go for the website and make it happen. I had extra time with her being gone, and instead of just filling my nights with tv, it was time to take my photo art public.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with JPS PhotoArt – tell our readers more, for example, what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
JPS PhotoArt focuses exclusively on creating art from landscape scenes. While living in Southern California, I have the blessing of living near deserts, mountains and, of course, the ocean. I find beauty in it all but would admit I love the beach, the piers, and the sunsets there to be my personal favorite.

jpsphotoart.com makes canvas prints available with a number of different sizes and formats. Metal and acrylic prints are also available on request. They are special ordered and work directly with me in the process. We’ve done work for homes, cabins, and business offices.

So, what’s next? Any big plans?
Connecting better with friends of JPS PhotoArt through our website is our primary focus now. It’s still so new to me, but we’re working at helping people find us on the website, as well as on Instagram and Facebook.

Pricing:

  • Canvas Prints generally run from $47.50 to $235 depending on size.
