About Ben Goode

Hello friends!

My name is Ben and I run Earth Art Photography. It is my passion and profession to capture nature's beauty in all its glory.
I’ve been brainstorming hard lately, trying to think of ways I can provide something of value for my wonderful social media followers, while at the same time getting some extra $ that would go towards my next book and special series project, which will be my biggest yet. Ideally something that would be a win win for everyone. A few people recommended Patreon, and it looks to be a perfect fit!
I am offering Gold, Platinum and Photographer Memberships that each feature different benefits. Members will be the first to hear about my projects and plans and I will be seeking regular feedback from you guys in all aspects of my creative journey.

My initial goal is to reach 100 members. Once that figure has been reached I will be officially revealing and launching my next project. It will be my biggest project yet and one I've already put a lot of thought into. Having the backup of my Patreon members will give me the financial support I need to embark on this new adventure.

MY BACKGROUND

Those of you who follow me through social media will probably have some idea of my background, but here is a short overview: 

I come from a creative family. My mother was a graphic artist, my father a poet and my sister is a talented graphic designer and chalk artist. I guess I was always destined for creativity. Coming out of school I did a sign writing course but it wasn't till a few years later that I scored a multimedia traineeship and begun working in video production. That led to an interest in web design/digital media and I soon found myself working in that field. The web was still young and I enjoyed the new challenge. After the business I was working for folded, I branched out on my own doing web and graphic design on a freelance basis. I loved the freedom and flexibility of self employment and I knew this was my future.

Before too long I got given my first camera and immediately begun selling photos through stock sites online. I had no idea how to use the camera, but I knew what looked good and I just tried to make images that looked good! Over time I learned more about photography and my camera and my passion for it skyrocketed. My dream was to sell prints of my images and in late 2011 I started Earth Art Photography with the aim of selling high quality prints of my landscape images. It took a full year for me to get my first sale, but I plugged away and after a few years I started to get a name for myself and a decent collection of images behind me.

Since then I have thrown my energy and passion into creating beautiful images of my home state of South Australia - travelling far and wide to capture the best light and the most stunning scenes. In 2018 I produced my first book 'Southern Comfort', raising $15000 through Kickstarter and I also put out a calendar each year. I consider myself incredibly fortunate to be able to follow my dreams and I am forever indebted to those who follow me on social media or purchase my prints.

MEMBER BENEFITS

There are a few reasons why you might like to be a member:
  1. You want to help support a full time artist in his future creative endeavors.
  2. You would love to own a large Earth Art print and can spare a few dollars a month for the chance to make that happen
  3. You’re a regular Earth Art customer and will benefit from the discounted products
  4. You're a photographer who could benefit from video tutorials and locations of my images
A QUICK NOTE ON US DOLLARS

Patreon is a US company, so the currency is shown in US Dollars. At the time of writing, here's an approximate exchange rate for my Australian patrons >> $1US = $1.43AUD. I hope you're happy to support me even if US Dollars aren't your native currency.

Thanks in advance for your support guys!

Cheers
Ben
