A couple of months ago one of my favorite artists was talking about a site called Patreon. She talked about the idea that she was going to keep making things and if you wanted you could support her on a per “thing” basis on Patreon. Of course I went and checked it out and it seemed like a great way to support her work so I pledged a couple of dollars. Although the more I looked at the site, the more it seemed like an interesting idea. And so I setup my own site there and started working on it.
What is Patreon? good question. Basically Patreon is a way for people to pay their favorite creators, makers, and artists for they work they make. Instead of buying a painting or a framed print of the work, you can pledge a few dollars a month and show your support for the work. Of course there are rewards for being a bonafide patron of the arts. More info can be found at their site. And if you want to become a patron and support the creation of more of my art, you can check out my Patreon page.
After much thinking and playing around with Patreon, I’ve finally got my site setup and ready for the world. I’ll be posting new work there first for my patrons. But not to worry, I’ll still be writing posts here related to photography and the things I’m playing with, learning, or working on. But Patreon is where I’ll be posting my artistic photography and nude art first. I’ll also be making images available for download along with stories about the shoots, and articles related to my photography. And I’m sure I”ll figure out what else we can do with the site as we progress.
I hope that you’ll become a patron and help me make more art.
