In October of 1986 I was born. 30 years, several moves, life changes and college drop-outs later I left a bad job on the eve of my birthday, determined not to go into my third decade doing something that I hated, and hoping to find something I loved. I found it after fiddling around for a couple weeks taking pictures with an iPhone camera, before picking up an old DSLR on craigslist for $200. As I re-write this in January 2019, the same old DSLR and I (it was mostly the camera, it's haunted and they get half the money--we can get into it later) have kept shooting as much as we can, earned a solo exhibition and a heap of praise online and from people plied in real life by beers. This patreon exists for those people who might call themselves a fan of mine, basically any time I post on any of my social media platforms I post here, sometimes outtakes or alternate angles of pictures I've posted publicly, and long (or short) musings about the photo or life in general. I work at a better place now, but college loans exist whether you drop out or not, which surprised me as well. 

Anyway, if you like me and how could you not, or you like my photographs, or you just want to find out what my other goals are since I sure don't remember, I hope you can consider kicking me a couple bucks a month.

Tiers
Tier one
$1 or more per month 0 patrons
Who's cool? You're cool. You've supported the arts, and in exchange you'll receive access to my patron only feed, and receive a custom photo based off of your word prompt. You give me the title, and I'll supply the image. 
Tier, too
$5 or more per month 1 patron

You'll receive 1 8x12 print, let's pretty up them walls. Plus, previous reward

Tier: 3
$10 or more per month 2 patrons

How does two 8x12's grab ya? not bad, right? Plus, the photo prompt and definitely not the last tier, who needs three prints?

May the fourth (tier) be with you
$20 or more per month 0 patrons

Well I wasted a lot of time learning aspect ratio, and now I can have a fourth tier. Give me $20 of your measly dollars and get an 8x12 AND 16x24 print. And the prompt, easily worth $20 alone.

Goals
$23 of $100 per month
I spend a lot of time walking around in the Tucson sun, lugging an old leather hand-me-down camera bag over my shoulder. This will go toward replacing that bag, along with some other camera necessities (will I be able to clean my sensor? let's get to $100 and find out!)
