Short intro:
Hi, everyone! I'm a fine artist and photographer based in Zurich, Switzerland. If you’re new here, you may want to visit my homepage: www.thomaskast.com.

If you like what I do, you may consider supporting my work, so I can keep on creating more inspiring photography and art. Patronage starts from $1 per month. Upon becoming a patron, you get access to better resolution images + bonus content available for commercial and non-commercial use (please see the rewards sidebar for details). 

To all my existing fans and patrons: thanks a lot, your help means a great deal to me, you keep me going!

Bit of history—why I decided to go Patreon:
Most of photographers start their journey with bigger-than-life dreams and ambitions. Pretty soon the reality settles in, however, and all we’re left with is the off-the-assembly-line product shots, and noisy weddings. In-between all this, we must endure art-gallery rejections (your work, albeit interesting, doesn’t fit our gallery profile) and angry editors throwing office supplies at us, while dragged out of office kicking and screaming.
Despite all this, I don’t want to give up before I’ve exhausted all options to do something that matters, other than pleasing a seven-figure CEO grinning for a headshot.
For what it’s worth—this is it—a carefully curated fruit of my thoughts, eyes and hands, created to make the world a more aesthetically pleasing place; my gift to you, whether a veteran photography connoisseur or just someone who enjoys a nice desktop wallpaper.

What can you find here:
Publicly available images (L-resolution @1000/667px) are released under the CC BY-NC-ND license (Creative Commons), which allows you to download anything you like and share it with whomever you like (including social media, blogs etc), as long as you don’t use the imagery commercially and credit your's truly.
For commercial use and better resolution, or if you simply have a big heart and care about artists eating regularly—please consider becoming a patron. Types of licenses and image sizes in the tiers description (all by Creative Commons, valid for the duration of patronship). New content will be arriving on a monthly basis, give or take. I also have some backlog releases, which will be going live soon.

Last but not least: every time someone misappropriates the license, a random puppy goes into a coma...
