Make Art Manifesto

You'll have access to an all new Make Art Manifesto patron-only feed about the business of creativity, specifically relating to crowdfunding new projects and creating my new publishing imprint. Ultimately, this will be the home for a podcast about getting creative things finished!

This is a bit of a different direction from the photographic side of things, a soup to nuts exposition of what it takes to build a small art imprint literally from the ground up, with no fucking idea as to what I'm doing!

PLUS a 10% discount on anything in my shop, from books to fine art prints and more!

About

It's what we do that defines who we are.

I use photography to interpret and understand the world around me. One of the challenges as an artist for me is to have a meaningful dialogue with supporters of my work. I see PATREON as a platform to communicate directly with you, to involve you in the creation process itself. A direct line to you, in the midst of making, rather than just at the finish line. For those of you interested in creating projects of your own, I'll be illuminating the entire experience. 

I see the PATREON platform as a modern day Medici, a patron of the arts and camera obscura creativity hive mind. I hope my page will act as a permission slip to enter the underground art laboratory that makes the work. I'll be writing about lighting, posing, pre-production (assisting, hair and makeup, location), post production, workflow, and the mysterious business of actually making a business of art. I'll also be discussing these same subjects with other artists, exploring their own process, experience and tactics that fueled their own notoriety. Finally, there is the publishing process itself; how we make and market new work, get it out into the world and keep the lights on in the meantime!

PATREON allows me to share the work on upcoming books, new art projects and collaborations. It’s a path into the scaffolding behind professional art and publishing. I hope it sparks a stronger dialogue with you creatures out there who digest the work in its final form.
Each month, I will feature exclusive videos, photographs and collaborations with creatives across the creative spectrum. I'll be discussing and exhibiting new work for upcoming books and personal projects, and uploading exclusive, uncensored peeks at all my new content.

Everything I've learned, I've either taught myself, or learned through collaboration. I hope to aggregate those experiences here, so let's get curious, be inspired, fail majestically and make some art
I can't wait to collaborate with all of you!
