The $25 Lay-by plus Mentoring
Limited (10 of 10 remaining)
reward item
$65
per month
I can't wait to help you with your own photographic journey - lets get going with One on One Online Photography Mentoring!

Photography is a wonderful, creative outlet in a hectic and sometimes overbearing world. Digital technology has made picture making easier yet more daunting at the same time. I love sharing the rules and techniques I have learnt during a 30 year professional career. It is even better showing how to break those rules!
Nothing can beat expert one on one mentoring for effective and fun learning. Targeted mentoring is the perfect way for enthusiast and novice photographers to nurture and expand the joy of photography into their own distinctive, polished style.
Online mentoring is conducted via email and is based around assignments I set according to your interests and experience. Your high res images are uploaded via Dropbox so I can fully evaluate your efforts and offer feedback and suggestions.

The Process
  • Interview - An email conversation to discover your photographic interests and experience level.
  • Mentoring - One assignment each month for you to complete. This will include suggestions on how to approach the task and will be based on your experience and equipment range.
  • Assessment - I will offer a critique as well as ideas and solutions to any photographic challenges you encountered making the pictures.
You can stop this subscription whenever you like. I suggest that two to four sessions will be a great learning experience.

Other rewards include:
  • $25 of your monthly subscription credited towards the purchase of one of my prints plus 12% Patreon discount off the print price.*
  • OR $25 of your monthly subscription towards a fine art print of your own work. I will personally prepare your file for expert printing by the person who reproduces my work.**
  • New work notification. Some of my prints are available in very small editions of only 5 per image so the early warning helps collectors nab a low numbered or even a first edition.***
The bold print:
  • * While $25 of the Mentoring Subscription is off set against any print purchase, the 12% discount applies to prints priced above $115.00 only.
  • **Each print of your own work is priced according to format, size and paper. The 12% discount is not applicable.
  • *** The lay-by period for limited edition prints is up to six months when a particular image is reserved. There is no requirement to commit to a particular image until final payment.
  • The Patreon discount cannot be combined with other rewards or discounts. $25 of the subscription value resets with each purchase - any credit balance carries forward to your next purchase. Rewards cannot be exchanged for cash or discount.

About

finding pictures...

I have set up this Patreon page to make it easier to own a 'foley'. The non-binding monthly subscriptions are offset against print purchases - just like a lay-by. Patrons also earn discounts off the usual gallery prices* and can receive feedback and tips.

I have been creating and sharing photography since 1972. Honing my craft and creativity by making mistakes, learning from mentors and through dogged persistence. Although I am a commercial photographer my passion has always been about seeing my personal work on a wall somewhere.

If you like the pictures I already share on Instagram and the ones you can find on my website then Patreon is a wonderful opportunity for a true collaboration where you will receive tangible and valuable rewards for your subscription.

Call it a Lay-by or Paying it Forward - it is the perfect way to help me make the art you love and for you to save when purchasing a 'foley'.

Rewards include
  • patron only discounts on all print purchases
  • illustrated short stories about or inspired by my photographs
  • helpful feedback on your own pictures (1 per month for the $5 subscription)**
  • Feedback / photographic problem solving (one each per month for the $15 subscription)**
  • one on one mentoring for enthusiast photographers
  • the opportunity to commission and own a framed Single Edition Print.
As a patron of creativity you deserve to be part of the process so I will be sharing my picture making - the highs and the setbacks - in regular activity posts. And I'll look forward to your questions and suggestions.

Subscriptions begin at just $5 per month and you can opt out at anytime. I hope you can join my ‘finding pictures’ journey - I know we will both enjoy it. 
* While the full Lay-by subscription can be off set against any print purchase, the 12% discount applies to prints priced above $115.00 only. $25 of the Mentoring Subscription (per month) is credited to your print purchase account.
**Picture Feedback and tips are available for 30 days after each monthly payment and do not accrue. They cannot be exchanged for cash or discount.

making pictures...


I'm not the guy for over saturated postcard views. I look for nuance in shadow and light in a process I call ‘finding pictures’. Like any search, it often takes many expeditions before a treasure is found or a moment held.

The place and the light that hits or misses it is just the start point. Each museum quality print is made using exacting archival standards on cotton rag paper. They are titled and numbered and each one comes with a signed 'birth certificate' telling the story of its origin.

The light and shadow of my imagination lives in the paper you hold when my print arrives at your home. I want you to touch it before you pass it over to your framer. In a time of so much online visual overload 'holding the pixels' is an essential facet of thoughtful photography.

To see more of my work please visit the paul foley gallery or follow me on Instagram My existing short stories can be found on my Words for my Pictures blog.

If you like the pictures I share and the stories I tell I invite you join me here at Patreon and enjoy the rewards of our collaboration.

Check the details about the various subscription levels and their rewards. Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or suggestions.

Thanks so much for helping me make the art you love,

paul
