Welcome to Patreon!
A place where you can show support for artists that you love, so they can continue to create content for their fans. 

Who am I and what do you create? 

My name is Jessica Kirby, I am a fine art photographer from Brisbane, Australia. I specialise in emotive portrait photography and retouching. 

You can see more of what I do here: www.jessicakphotography.com/blog 

I have an ongoing erotic art project named "The Medusas" which focuses on female sexuality and the struggles and expectations that are put on girls and women when it comes to intimacy. The name is inspired by both Greek mythology goddess Medusa and the writings of Helene Cixous' "The Laugh Of The Medusa." I hope to highlight the many contradictions that are placed upon women when they enter the world of sex and how that has affected the model's I shoot with and myself, through both real life recounts and character stories with each model. 

In 2015 I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, then in 2017 I was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder. These both ended up to be incorrect diagnoses, I ended up having a rare condition called Anti-NMDA Receptor Encephalitis. I was hospitalised on September 13th 2017 into a mental hospital, then as soon as I was released with a bunch of medication I ended up not needing, I stopped taking the pills. That night I had a seizure, I then went on to have 12 seizures in 24 hours. I was in hospital until October 17th 2017. In hospital I had a plasma transfusion after many tests including, a spinal tap (where they found out about the encephalitis), electroencephalogram, an ultrasound, a MRI, and blood tests many and sometimes twice a day. I had to learn to walk, shower myself, eat, go to the bathroom all over again. Up until June 2018 I have had to put my photography on hold and in this time I have lost a lot of Patrons, for obvious reasons, I am now ready to get back to creating like I once did, and to hopefully build up my Patreon like I once had. 

Every little bit counts, and I appreciate every single dollar. I post all of my uncensored work here for Patrons only as Patreon has made a new rule that nudity is not allowed on public posts. To see censored previews head over to my instagram. As a Patron, I encourage messaging me about anything, my messages are always open. I hope to see you on here for the content and for your support in my photographic endeavours.

I am currently looking for models interested in participating in The Medusas project. (Brisbane)

What do you get for helping out? 
I am always releasing new content on my social media sites for free, but having your support means that I am able to get new editorials out faster, even for just $1 a month, every little bit helps. I post photoshop tutorials, in depth blog posts about gear and key concepts when I am shooting. I have more information in my 'Rewards' section. 

Why should you become a patron?
Having your support allows me to be able to focus on creating my art and validates me to keep producing new content. The 'starving artist' is not a new concept, by pledging to my Patreon you're supporting me for new equipment, shooting trips and hopefully in the future... books and exhibitions. One step at a time. I hope that through my journals and editorials I am able to inspire and spark new thoughts that wouldn't have come to mind otherwise. I want to explore and showcase the journeys of other people, while also digging into the truth of who I am and who I wish to become as an artist and a person. 

Thank-you in advance for your support, every cent means a lot to me and it gives me hope to keep creating. I appreciate every single one of you.
