Welcome everyone to my Patreon page. I am David, an independent photographer from Germany. My main focus used to be travel and nature photography. But in 2016 my life completely changed, when I decided to volunteer in Idomeni, one of the largest refugee camps in Europe since WWII.

Since then I have spent many months volunteering in various refugee camps on the Balkan route, in Greece and in the Middle East. I have witnessed the lives and daily challenges refugees are facing in Europe and in other parts of the world. I have seen fears and sorrows, but also the unfailing hope and joy people find in life despite all hardships.

For everyone back home, I have tried my best to share these experiences and shed some light on the situation on the ground through photography, social media and on my blog.

It's the most valuable work I've ever done and I would love to continue working on humanitarian issues and create compelling and challenging photo documentaries and stories from around the world now and in the future, in some form or another. For this I need your support.

How does Patreon work?

Patreon simply is a crowdfunding platform where you pledge a monthly donation. Think of it as a voluntary subscription service where you decide the amount you would like to support me with. Of course you can opt out or change your pledge at any time.

All contributions through Patreon are deeply appreciated as this will really help me substantially to work and plan ahead future projects in a sustainable way.


What I’ll Use the Money For

Work on the ground. I need to pay for flights, accommodation, transport and other logistic necessities in order to keep on doing what I do.

Me.
I need to pay rent, health insurance, continue to eat things and wear things and turn lights on as I work on projects, photos, write and draw posts.


Independent photo-journalism

The benefits of staying independent are manifold: I am not obliged or restricted to any employer, sponsor or agenda. I can stay flexible, react quickly and also focus on issues that may not necessarily be of mainstream interest.

Your support will help me to maintain exactly that. Therefore the most important feedback I receive is from you valued readers and patrons.

In exchange for your support, I promise to continue to deliver high-quality photo documentaries and insight stories from on the ground that challenge, raise awareness, inspire or sometimes simply entertain.


Exclusive content (just for patrons)

Within the Patron-only news feed, I will post regular updates about my journeys and projects and you will see snippets of life along the way. I will release project news here first. Examples include:

Exclusive photo sets
Patron-only video updates
Itinerary news
Podcasts
Early news of events exhibitions and special invitations


Thanks so much for your support. I’m tremendously honored to have a community of people who value what I do and I can assure you, your support will go a long way.

Reaching this goal will enable me to finally work on my blog again. It will allow me to edit photos and each month create one or two comprehensive blog posts on humanitarian issues and non-commercial projects I have done or will be doing in the future.
