Hi everyone! I'm Scott Jones. Since 2008, when I started living my dream of being a motor sports photographer, I've learned loads of things to share with aspiring photographers and motorcycle racing fans. And some crazy, funny stuff has happened to me while working in MotoGP, WSBK, and other motor sports series - stuff that racing fans enjoy hearing about in my live presentations. Patreon is a way for me to bring these things to you as a new stream of video, audio, and written content.

If you're looking at a Patreon page for the first time, here's the deal: Patreon allows people to be come patrons of the artists whose work they appreciate by contributing on a monthly basis rather than making a one-time donation or purchase. So I've joined Patreon with some new ideas for ways to reach my two groups of followers, the Photography Fans and the Race Fans.

I'm no longer posting video content on YouTube. It's all going exclusively to my Patreon supporters, and I'm making all of the photography-related video available to all supporters, even at the $2/month level. I'm really excited to share the things I've learned about photographing motor sports with everyone who offers even the first level of support.

For those who want more of what I have to offer, the higher support tiers come with rewards such as the Swag Bag Lottery: Over the years I've collected all sorts of swag items and each month I’ll do a lottery for all my Patreon supporters. The more you chip in to keep me going, the more chances you have to win and pick an item from Swag Bag. If you're in the US I’ll ship it to you for free, or if you're outside the US I'll ship at my cost via the courier you prefer.

Each month I create a free desktop calendar just for my Patreon supporters that looks like this. At the $15/month level you get to pick the image you want from the PhotoGP online archive and I will create that month's desktop calendar specifically for you. (You may pick any image that has not been used for a PhotoGP Limited Edition.)

Special Access to Me! This access takes several possible forms.
  • 1 on 1 Skype calls about photography or racing, your choice
  • Join.me screen share sessions where you send me one of your photos, then watch my screen as I process it in Lightroom
  • A monthly review of your photography work

Thanks again for looking at my Patreon page. I hope to be sharing my unique content with you soon!

Goals
75% complete
Instead of having a goal that rewards me, I'd like to have a goal that rewards YOU. When we reach $250/month, we'll have a special lottery (entries according to your current contribution level) for a prize not listed in the Swag Bag list- for this first goal it's a brand new Tamrac 5603 camera bag. And everyone who helps meet this first goal is on the Hall of Fame list in video credits!
