Hi, kids! I'm Bud Simpson. From my beginnings as a snap-shooting science-nerd nine year-old to a seasoned commercial studio pro and early digital adopter - my life in photography has given me a great imaging toolkit. I'm thrilled that through photography, I can share my experience and this phase of my life, and with you along for the ride, continue to make memorable images. 

Join me on the adventure! For the photography, discovery, and bits of truth found on the American highways. 

Tiers
Pinhole Camera
$1 or more per month
Seaman Mosby adds his heartfelt thanks for joining our team as we travel, making images and new friends from coast to coast.
Box Camera
$5 or more per month
  • You'll get total access to all of the content on our basic  Patreon-only feed. 
  • How-tos, notes from the road, links to useful information and thoughts about images and processes.
Point And Shoot
$10 or more per month
At this level, 
  • Along with access to the basic Patreon feed, you'll receive
  • special subscriber-only wallpaper images for your personal use, six times a year
  • Desktop or phone formats, whatever you require.
35mm Camera
$20 or more per month
With the 35mm camera, you get: 
  • Access to the previous reward tiers, plus 
  • Special instructional videos, image tutorials, and a glimpse at what we do to every image to make it ready for presentation to the eagerly-waiting world. 
  • We'll talk about composition, color control, how to make darkroom-quality black and white, and much more. 
  • Topics range from basic to advanced.
Digital SLR
$35 or more per month
You've graduated to digital, and I'll do my best to personally help you make the most of your new tools. 
  • In addition to all the other perks previously mentioned, you'll have the full benefit of my forty years of experience at your beck and call, at least by email. (I'd promise Skype or FaceTime, but we're often away from adequate cell signals.) 
  • Ask me anything, send me images to critique or offer suggestions on, find out how I'd approach a photography challenge. I'm all yours.
Medium Format
$50 or more per month
  • Along with all the other rewards, you'll receive: 
  • One hardcover book of my photography, with what I believe are some of the best images I've created over the last few years. 
  • It may include bits of narrative about how the image was created, or my thought process at the time. 
  • It will, however, be a custom, one-off product, made just for my Patreon subscribers, and available nowhere else. Available after the second month.
4x5 Field Camera
$75 or more per month
All the other rewards, plus:
  • You'll receive one matted and framed gallery print of any image of mine - your choice. 
  • Image size will be around 8"x10", matted in white, and mounted in a black gallery frame. 
  • Only standard rectangular or square images in normal aspect ratios are available. (No panoramas)
  • Available after the second month

This level will help to remove us from the volunteer workforce and allows us to concentrate 100% on making memorable images. Moxie can also use more cat food. Look at that beautiful face!
