patrons

Greetings,

I'm a portrait and nature photographer currently residing in Lubbock, Texas. Last May (2018), after almost twenty-five years in academia, I left to pursue "freelance" photography full time. Making a living as a full time artist is challenging, and Patreon provides an opportunity for those who enjoy my work to support me on this path. Many thanks for being here.

My time here at Patreon is dedicated toward promoting and supporting my outdoor work and writing--things that require a lot of time just being in places, physically, emotionally, and intellectually, which rarely come with an immediate (or even not-so-immediate) paycheck attached. In the new year (2019), I intend to use the tools provided here at Patreon to share with you a little bit of my travels, my practice, my tools, my process, and my work on the road and in wild places. I hope you'll find it worthwhile to join me as you can.

"creativity keeps the world alive, yet, everyday we are asked to be ashamed of honoring it, wanting to live our lives as artists. i’ve carried the shame of being a ‘creative’ since i came to the planet; have been asked to be something different, more, less my whole life. thank spirit, my wisdom is deeper than my shame, and i listened to who i was. i want to say to all the creatives who have been taught to believe who you are is not enough for this world, taught that a life of art will amount to nothing, know that who we are, and what we do is life. when we create, we are creating the world. remember this, and commit."

• Yes, this is a bold one, and it's really for those who'd just like to see me be able to focus more of my time and efforts on writing a book. If/when I actually finish a formal book project, I'll send you an autographed copy. Meanwhile, if twelve months pass and I haven't finished a book, I'll be sure to send you a suitable printed replacement, such as a full color magazine style retrospective of the previous year's work.
