Help Us Help You!


You've seen our videos with Ansel Adams, Bob Holmes, Joe McNally, Chase Jarvis, Bambi Cantrell - and the list goes on! With your donations and community support, we can make many, many more of these videos possible. Our mission at AYP is to connect you with photographers who have mastered their craft, sharing their insights and showing you their photography tips so you can go right out and use them!

Why Patreon?

We believe Patreon is an amazing platform that allows us to help connect further to the people we’re doing this for—you. We also believe in the transparency that it can offer. By only paying for videos that we produce, you know you’ll only pay as long as we deliver. And if you’re concerned about going over your budget, you can easily set a monthly maximum when you’re entering payment. We produce 4 videos a month currently, though we hope to expand as we are able.

Where your money goes:

Your support allows us to continue to create content that helps connect you to many experts in the field and their valuable advice and feedback. We also work to have a monthly live stream where we can talk with supporters and have some special guests to answer questions as well. With increasing support, we intent to not only improve the quality of our content, but to increase the scope. We have several projects we’d love to do, but need the resources and time to produce:

More videos about Ansel Adams. We’re super proud to have worked very closely with his family— but can you believe we still have unreleased footage of his to edit and publish?! We plan to visit his house and darkroom again soon and bring you behind the scenes. There is so much knowledge that he passed along through his books, films and those who worked with him that we want to bring you! Your support will help us —producing these films requires research, planning, shooting, editing, etc.

Continue to bring you great videos from the pros. But to do so requires team support, travel, equipment, etc.

A series of videos covering the basics (meaning the firm foundation that you build on) — taking even a beginner and helping them move advanced or even a pro!

More tools to help you put into application what you learn from the videos. As with any education, what really matters is how you apply what you have learned, and we want to help you do that.

Who are we?

We have been doing this for you by self-funding AYP since 2011. We need your help to take AYP to the next level by focusing totally on our mission — your support will make that possible!

This is what Outdoor Photographer Magazine said about us:

"Mr. Silber has kept up the good work on web TV, with recent episodes including sit-down interviews and examinations of the work of surf photographer Chris Burkhard, documentary photojournalist Teru Kuwayama, and fine art photographer Camille Seaman. These aren’t throwaway videos churned out daily... the productions are well done—Emmy-worthy compared to much web programming."

We need your help to make these goals a reality. Thank you for your support, and together, let’s build a strong and meaningful platform to master the art of photography — step by step (or I should say, video by video!)
