Semi-Interesting Photography

is creating something old, something new, nothing borrowed, for you?

In my spare time, I'm a photographer and occasionally other things. Creativity keeps my right brain working and happy. What you are seeing here is an outlet for my work of various types both old and new. For nearly two decades I've had a ton of work sitting on disk drives that I think needs to be aired out, and this is a way to do that. Also, I want to keep shooting, as I love meeting and working with models, and finding new ways to capture people and the world around me.

I don't really need the money, at least these days, so any proceeds will go to models as fees or bonuses (main priority), or to wardrobe, MUAs, and similar worthy causes.



Note: I am providing content to patrons for private, personal use only. Public sharing, transmitting,  embedding, re-publishing, licensing, etc., without my permission is prohibited. Also, it's not cool.
Tiers
Models Only
$1 or more per month (sold out!)

Models: Access to everything including most or maybe all physical benefits -- for sure, the "journal" and mini-books. I can't make this free, so ....


If you are currently modeling for me or have ever modeled for me before, contact me for an invite and I'll increase the limit so you can join.

General Admission
$1 or more per month

Random Semi-Interesting Photographs of absolutely every kind that I've taken from random times and places in an archive of 10,000s of photos generally starting around 2001. Most photos before then have been lost, but there are some still. Every tier will have some (or maybe a lot of) nudity, but it'll be most occasional here.

Photo Stream
$5 or more per month

A more coherent collection of Semi-Interesting Photography, with a few photos (when possible) from each event or location that I've picked. This will definitely include representative teasers (including some nudity) from the Pinup tier. It'll also include things like auroras, landscapes, nature, street photography, and things that I've found generally interesting at one time or another.

Pinup Sets, et Cetera
$20 or more per month

I can't promise a particular schedule, but I have a pretty good inventory of Semi-Interesting pinup work, and I enjoy (love) shooting pinup, and I'll post it here as regularly (1-2 weeks) as possible. Yes, nudity. Hell, yeah. I tend strongly toward "tasteful," so let me set your expectations there ... although ... every once in a while something crazy comes along.


But also, I hope, a lot of creativity. I do have a lot of plain old digital work, but I like interesting lighting, location shooting, and I also like alternatives like toy and lo-fi cameras, improvised lenses, Instax, expired film, pinhole, antique cameras, alternative processes (I hope to start doing albumen again), and so on.

Semi-Patron
$35 or more per month

The budget version of Patron. See that tier for a description. You'll get a link to a low-cost copy of the "Journal of Semi-Interesting Photography" on Blurb, which you'll have to acquire on your own. :) But you'll still be helping pay models and others involved in the creative process, and they will surely be appreciative.

Patron
$75 or more per month

This is for my well off friends and my well off future friends who are looking to spend some money that, as I've indicated, will find its way to models and other worthy causes (not me, I'm good).


That's basically your reward: Paying it forward. Many of the people I photograph now work very hard for a living, and need the money. Believe me, your contribution will be appreciated.


Patron and Semi-Patron get all photographic content from previous tiers. You probably won't get additional photos here. Let's not go there, yet. Honestly, I don't want to be stingy or "exclusive" with the photos. That's not how I roll.


Most likely, you will get an occasionally published "Journal of Semi-Interesting Photography" that I'll be creating, as I can, as a premium Blurb magazine. If you're not familiar with these, they are very nice -- very very nice -- and not particularly magazine-like at all. Laying these out is a time-consuming labor of love, or just a labor, but I really like seeing them, and it's highly likely that you will too. Actually, this will just plain rock. Target size per issue is ~100 pages of pretty much just photos.


Maybe, when I'm in the mood to buy a photo printer, we can come up with some occasional physical rewards. With the sunk cost of a medium format printer, a 17 x 22" print of your choice is NBD to print and ship.  Another option could be something like metal prints at cost. Or, maybe you have ideas.


Also, if you have concepts you'd like to have photographed, participating in this tier will make me lend an ear for sure. If your concept is interesting and doable, it will happen as soon as it can be scheduled.

Goals
4 of 10 patrons
When I reach 10 patrons ... I'll feel wildly successful. Seriously. I'll probably have to start by arm-twisting my small inventory of friends. ?
