Chris Marquardt is creating weekly podcasts like Photography Tips from the Top Floor

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

I'm Chris, I make podcasts about photography. I make 4 of those.. Happy Shooting, Absolut analog, The Future of Photography and first and foremost Photography Tips from the Top Floor.
And I'm asking you to support me. 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.

And in return you will get early access to new episodes of TFTTF.. in fact you'll be the first to listen after I finished recording and editing. You'll actually get the episode even before Release Pixie gets his hands on them. That's how much I love you guys.

Now in addition to early access, you will get the podcasts more regularly and even while I'm gone. And while I have been able to keep that up quite well over the last year, know I sometimes have to take breaks, because it's often hard to justify the time that I spend on making these podcasts.
And with your help I can afford to take time away from my paid work and spend more time on making content.

And of course you will also get that warm fuzzy feeling that you get when you're doing something really good. And chipping in is not just for yourself, but for the thousands of other listeners out there who might not be able to chip in.

And this is important to me: I'm not here to guilt-trip you into giving money. Don't worry if you can't afford to give. 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.

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.

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