About John S. Dykstra

Hello!

I'm John and I'm an introvert experimental photographer who likes to shoot photographs that look like digital composites, except without digital compositing. In a world of CGI, Photoshop manipulation and floating people, I prefer to create real photographs of otherworldly scenes through the use of practical effects, optical illusions, and camera trickery. 

I love this style of photography, but the work is time-demanding, material-intensive and expensive. So I've come to the Patreon platform to raise support for my photography.

Patreon is very simple: you pledge money for every photograph I produce and, with your help, I can create more surrealistic photographs for you to gawk at. In return, you get a little glimpse behind the curtain: exclusive pics and a write-up of my setup for each photograph I take. I also write occasionally about my photographic interests and adventures. I mention that last bit more as a warning than a benefit.

Thank you for visiting my Patreon!
Best wishes,
John Dykstra
