Hello my dearest Tumblr followers, I am going to give this Patreon thing a try it seems.
Why you ask? Well, 80% of my income is from the book publishing market for creative book cover photography. Long story short, e-readers have destroyed that market. Through some bad planning on the part of the image agencies, digital book covers pay out approximately 12.5% of their physical counterparts, ie. I now make 12.5% of what I did 5 years ago.
SO, as I would dearly love to continue to create content that inspires and tantalizes, and I very much do not want to give up my wonderful photo studio, and also eating and medicine are a good thing to have, I would ask humbly for your sponsorship. I have shared my work freely for over 10 years, and this would enable people with the means and inclination to support me in my efforts.
Please click through the link for all the info. Patreon is a new crowd funding platform that let’s you support your favorite creators for as little as $5.00 a month. Click here to see all the perks of being a patron!
Each level of support has it’s perks, and one of mine is a free monthly 8x12 of your choice. This is significant as 8x12 prints of my work are no longer available for sale anywhere on the internet.
Thanks for reading!
Visioluxus is my favorite photographer, I was a huge fan long before I had the opportunity to get wrapped up in tentacles and covered in marshmallow fluff for her myself. Her work is stunning and creative and I love everything she creates.
