Thanks for taking the time to visit our Patreon page! Odds are you've found your way over here from one of our YouTube Channels. If that's the case, thanks for coming. If you ended up here by different means like Facebook, Instagram or another platform then thank you too!

What started off as a small passion project directed at some friends and fellow riders a few years ago has evolved into a huge online community of like minded individuals. What to me as a creator has started to feel more like an extended family and a group of friends from all over the world. Big or small, this is still a passion project. However, it is now much larger than it was and now involves the passion of not just myself, but many other people too! 

I started out on YouTube with just one camera and a few video clips. I pieced together a video of some clips I shot out off-roading with some friends. I was riding an ATV at the time and was considering upgrading to a UTV. My friends kept bugging me to upload some of the video clips I shot with them as they wanted to see what they looked like on video and share the clips with their other friends. I uploaded those video clips to YouTube one night and forgot about them. In my mind I thought, "wouldn't it be cool if like 10,000 people watched this video in a year!?" About 3 or 4 months later I decided to check up on the video and was shocked at what I found. Firstly I was shocked by the fact it had received over 40,000 views and secondly, the positive feedback and comments I received were overwhelming. In my wildest dreams, I hadn't expected so many people to relate to and enjoy the video I had poorly edited together using free editing software. It was the first time I had ever edited a video, yet the comments were asking for more content! Aside from more videos viewers wanted my opinion on the machines in the video. At the time of uploading the first video SXS's were new and there was hardly any content of them on YouTube, especially on trails like we were riding. Since I already had a love for photography it was only natural I expand my horizons and pursue cinematography as well. It was then that AdrenalineJunkieProd was born.

I have had a love of powersports and motorsports since I was under 2 years old. My grandfather bought me a Powerwheels Jeep, a red CJ 7 with a big eagle on the hood. That was what really started the passion and it snowballed from their. Anytime my dad was in the garage working on a car or messing with power tools I just had to be there.

My goal for AdrenalineJunkieProd was always to create a community of like minded people who enjoy powersports and spending time outdoors with friends, while providing unbiased, real world off-road riding content. Before uploading my first video I often found myself searching YouTube for trail riding videos and I was sick of all the 1-3 minute, poorly edited clips I was seeing. I wanted real world comparisons of vehicles head to head, like they would be used in the real world. I wanted to sit down for 15+ minutes and watch a video of an entire trail ride. I wanted to watch a show on ATV's and UTV's just like I would watch a show on sports cars on the Discovery Channel. I wanted to see what various machines performed like so I could do research on which machine I should buy next. By identifying that gap I realized that it was my duty to fill it. Since that time, I have done my best to film most of the ATV and UTV rides I go on or take part in. With the intention of being able to share my adventures with anyone else who is interested (which is way more people than I ever thought...).

Over the years word has spread and the community has grown. I have learned new skills and adapted new filming/editing methods. I have improved my camera gear and my editing tools. I have spent thousands of hours, riding, filming, editing, uploading and responding to comments. I wouldn't trade the experience for anything. Naturally, over the years competition has increased and there is more and more content on YouTube related to our niche. I embrace this and love the fact more people are sharing their experiences doing what they love. The internet is a wonderful place, it really has the ability to bring people together and platforms like YouTube make it even easier. 

I sit here today writing this Patreon description mostly due to the fact that many viewers have told me I should, as they would like to support the channel and help it grow. For a long time I put this off as I have been raised in a way that has taught me not to take handouts and to work for what I want. It wasn't until recently that I started accepting the fact that what I do to keep my YouTube channels running from day to day is a job. It humbled me to read comments and messages from viewers stating they love watching my videos with their kids and that they wish there was more content to view. Viewers messaging me and saying that they watch my videos to cheer themselves up when they are down or to get a fix when they can't get out and ride. Many viewers have made statements that they would be willing to donate towards the project if it meant more quality content to watch but they did not know how they could do that.

With that being said, I am launching this Patreon account for you, the viewer. I have put it off for quite a while but finally accept the fact that if I am to take the next step I will need some help. It is my goal to create more content, better content and more frequent content. I ask that you donate what you feel is right no matter how little or how much that is. I pledge to you that all the resources raised through this platform will go directly back into the YouTube Channels and the brand to improve it and help it grow. Just like all the current monthly YouTube revenue does now, kind of... Unfortunately, the amount of revenue generated through YouTube monetization alone does not even cover a significant portion of the camera gear and processing power it takes to film and edit these videos. New gear is expensive, monthly subscriptions to editing software is expensive. The amount of storage space needed to archive all the video is expensive. I am happy with how things are growing organically, nevertheless, if the viewers want more rapid growth, more content and better content, I can't handle it on my own. This is why I have setup this Patreon account and why I am also launching a full line of custom #TeamAJP swag to help fund future projects.Many viewers have asked for t-shirts, stickers and other swag for a long time. Being what is pretty much a one man show, I have had a hard time keeping up with all of these additional projects on top of filming and editing all of the video content, which I do in my free time outside of my other responsibilities in life, such as work, friends, family and looking after the off-road machines that this brand is based on.

Anyways, I don't want to drag this on much longer as it has already turned into quite an essay. If you have more questions, leave me a comment on here, on YouTube or on one of the other media platforms you use.

Lets take this project to the next level together, join me on this passion project and pour some of your passion into it as well!

Thank you so much for your support over the last few years and thank you for taking the time to visit my Patreon page and read this. I can't wait to see what the future has in store for us. I hope to ride with all of you one day on the trails. Ride safe, and try to keep it rubber side down!

Sincerely,
