    About Chris Marquardt

    Welcome to Patreon. This is a platform that lets you support your favorite creators, people who make and share stuff and then give it away.. people like me.

    What I do:

    I'm Chris, I make five podcasts about photography. Happy Shooting, Absolut analog, The Future of Photography, WRINT Fotografie (which I co-host) and of course Photography Tips from the Top Floor.

    What I'm asking for:

    Now that I have lost my industry sponsorships (long story, basically over privacy concerns with my ad agency), I'm asking you to support each episode of Tips from the Top Floor with a little voluntary contribution. It starts with as little as $1 and it will help me continue to do what I love doing.

    What you get:

    In return you will get early access to new studio episodes of TFTTF. In fact you'll be the first to listen after I finished recording and editing. Even before Release Pixie gets his hands on them.

    I can only do that for the studio episodes though, unfortunately early access won't work for the  "slice" episodes, sorry about that.

    In addition to early access, you will get the podcasts more regularly and even while I'm gone (this is where the slices come in).

    Why I'm asking for support:

    Your contribution affords me to take time from my paid work and spend longer on making quality content.

    And don't forget that warm fuzzy feeling that you get when you're doing something good. Also, chipping in is not just for yourself, but for those out there who might not have the means for financial support. This is absolutely not to guilt-trip you into giving money. Don't worry if you can't afford it. I will keep making Tips from the Top Floor not matter what, even if you decide to not become a patron. Because I love doing this, ... so don't feel bad if you can't chip in, that's totally fine.

    But if a dollar an episode does not hurt you, it would just make it easier for me to justify the time and work that I put into making these recordings.

    I'll use your contributions to take time out of my client work to make more podcasts. I will use that time to do research to answer your questions, to sit down and write for the episodes, to schedule guests, to do the actual recoridngs, to edit the episodes.

    All that takes time and effort, and probably a bit more than you imagine.

    How I will use your contribution:

    I will use your contributions to keep my equipment up-to-date, like this microphone that I paid out of my own pocket. I will use your contributions to bring you more content from when I travel. I will use your contributions to cover some of my travel expenses, like the trip to the Rochester Institute of Technology. I will use your contributions to pay for the high-speed hosting that brings all of that content to you as quick as possible.

    And of course the main thing this is about is to help enable me to bring you good and interesting content about photography. In the form of the occasional video, the occasional blog post but most important in the form of regular podcasts. Because that's probably why you're here.

    Other ways to support me:

    There are other ways you can help. I've set up a page that lists other options.


    Thank you so much for considering to chip in, you rock!
