We (Russ & Janelle) started The GOOD BOOK Company LLC in 2007 and we have several divisions including GloryScapes™, R1 Web Design, Russ Hansen Marketing, The Prayer at Valley Forge, and now we are proud to present, PhotoArt365.
I, Russ, have been interested in photography ever since high school. I served as the campus photographer at Northwest Nazarene College (now University) in Nampa, Idaho, and worked in a B&W photo darkroom there taking many of the promo photos for the school.
Then from 1979 to 1986 I worked at Nazarene Communications in Kansas City, Missouri, where one of my duties was to not only take photography, but to also evaluate photographs taken by other photographers on staff. The other photographers gave me the nick name, “Oc Eye,” pronounced similar to “Hawk Eye,” because I would evaluate their 35 mm transparencies (color slides) using a light table and an 8x Ocular (special magnifying glass).
So, I’ve had a lifetime of evaluating my own photography as well as that of other photographers.
On this website, I hope you’ll agree, we’ve picked some beautiful photos for your home/office decor that when printed as Metal Prints at our lab, are absolutely stunning. We recently had a booth at a local event where we featured about 10 of our Metal Prints and the one word we heard all day was, “Wow!” Another comment someone made was, “It’s like bringing the outdoors inside.”
Many people ask if we can take their images and turn them into Metal Prints. The answer is yes. Just send your jpg image to my email below and tell me the size of Metal Print you are interested in and I’ll evaluate your image and get a price quote back to you.
