Hi! I'm Nick. I've been creating educational and inspirational photos and videos about poi since 2002. 

I have a clear vision of where I am going, artistically. This vision includes making the best photos and videos yet, and touring with a gallery show and performance in 2019. Bringing that vision to life will require me upgrading my skills with cameras and post-production, and setting aside many hours for writing, rehearsal, experimentation, and shooting. 

If you would like to see me bring these visions to life, I have a proposition. This patreon page lets you send me a recurring monthly donation, to help me spend more time honing my skills and producing art, and less time scrambling to make ends meet. 

If you join me in this journey, you will get access to the special content I post here on Patreon This will include articles and videos about how you can take your own great photos and videos of poi spinning and fire dancing! Depending on the patron perk you pick, you may also get high resolution wallpaper images, access to my online step-by-step poi courses, or prints of my best photos. 

Patreon makes it easy for us to have our own mini-community. Once you become a patron, your membership "unlocks" the content I post right here on this page. You'll also be able to communicate with me and the other patrons.

My upcoming expenses include new camera gear, followed by replacing my aging laptop. I also have monthly expenses for the software and web services I use, travel health insurance, and several other expenses related to being self-employed. I will keep paying for most of this myself. I'm just hoping that with a little patronage, I will have more time to do what I do best, with a little less stress! 

Thanks for reading this far. If you're one of the people who takes the time to watch and share my photos and videos, thanks for that too! If you decide to be a patron, multiply those thank you's by 100!

Goals
$690 of $1,500 per month
I'll have a small budget to contract other artists, to take things further than I can take them myself. My first pick is Jeremy Lewis of findingfuture.com. I would love to work with him again! Every time I see his work, he's levelled up!
