It is my hope that through Patreon you not only help me grow this project in order for it to reach people that need it, but you will help me take it full time and make it a sustainable resource within the suicide awareness and prevention community. On my social media you have seen glimpses of my process. But with Patreon, I want you to have access to it all, the good days, the bad days and the growth. This is where you will see into the heart of my project, from my perspective. I want to provide you with full transparency into what Faces of Fortitude is, which started as a way to use creativity to grieve the loss of my brother, and has become a platform for me to use photography and community to enable people to share their stories of loss, survival and compassion around suicide.

A pledge of $3 a month will unlock access for all of my loyal and amazing followers to have an exclusive look into my process when creating the images, editing photos, writing content, exclusive looks into the designing of the book and behind the scenes at special events. If you can afford to give more support, that is great but not necessary. For me it is about access, and being able to give what so many of you are asking for; a closer look into who I am as the Creator and Photographer Faces of Fortitude. 

To date I have sat with 100 Faces, spent 178 hours in the studio, countless hours and days editing, even done my first gallery show with another in the works. Its all so daunting but also SO exciting. I have lists of vetted and approved Faces in over 17 cities across the USA, patiently waiting for me to be able to photograph them and sit with their stories. I need your help to take the next step in making these kinds of things happen. The hope is that by working together we can grow this platform for all people that need a safe space and a community to embrace them when they feel the most alone. 

Thank you for considering and for your support.
