I do a lot for the communities I am involved in: I have been the official photographer for anime con (in particular, Anime Los Angeles), multiple Costume Con, multiple Worldcon's Hugos and Masquerade, and Nebulas. With the exception of the Nebulas, I do not get paid for doing them. So if you are one of the many people who have enjoyed my photos for these events or other photos, please consider supporting me. Thank you.

Since Jan 2014, I have been doing three portrait projects on 4x5 large format films:
Transformations:Cosplay portraits of costumers in their costumes and their "civilian" attires:

Worldbuilders of Science Fiction and Fantasy portraits of authors, artists, and other creative types in the genres.

Hearts on Our Sleeves stories and portraits of transgender people

4x5 color films cost ~$5 a sheet. I process my own films to keep the cost down. There are also ongoing equipment replacement cost: two of the legs in my tripod have broken off, and they are now wrapped in fiber glass and duct tapes; my large 4x2' soft box is dying etc.

The projects have been well received but I need all the help I can get to continue with these labors of love projects. These work will eventually result in books and hopefully gallery exhibitions.

Goals
$1 – reached! per month
This is not a monetary goal. However, I have received grant from the ICG (International Costumers' Guild) and with that and your generous monthly support, I will be attending Anime North in May 2017. After the convention, I should have over 100 pairs of images and I will start working on the (first) book on Transformations:Cosplay.
