Hello, my name is Jason Marti and I created Photo Into Painting for two reasons: to help photographers and designers find high quality design freebies and to showcase my products and services such as custom digital paintings and wall art.
I’m a 33-year-old stay at home father of three, husband, photographer, designer, traditional and digital artist, and military veteran who lives in Southern California. For over 14 years I have been creating art both digitally and traditionally and still love every minute of it.
In The Beginning
Prior to starting Photo Into Painting, I was a full-time studio and freelance photographer. I loved traveling and meeting new people, but after my beautiful children were born, I decided to put the travel on hold and develop Photo Into Painting.
I started Photo Into Painting in 2009 when I began to receive requests for digital backgrounds and artwork from people in the photography and design communities who did not have the time or ability to create them themselves. It was a perfect opportunity to expand my studio to a broader audience and design some goodies for a community that has so much inspired me.
The Main Event
Although most of my time is dedicated to creating digital paintings for professional photographers and boutiques, I do my best to give back to a generous community by designing free wallpapers, free digital backgrounds and free textures that you can download. I invite you to check out what Photo Into Painting has to offer. If you ever have a special request such as specific background color or type of texture, please don’t hesitate to ask–I’m here to help. Or if you’re a photographer and want to increase you product line, or are swamped with photo retouch work, then I’d love to give you a hand. Visit the contact page to request a quote.
I hope I have given you a glimpse of who Jason Marti is. Please keep in touch with what PhotoIntoPainting.com is doing through one of our subscription methods. Also you may find me on Twitter, StumbleUpon, Digg, and Flickr.
Feel free to leave your thoughts and comments about your experiences with photography and design in the comments sections of my posts–I want to hear from you!
