12

patrons

per month
Greetings, and thanks for visiting my artist page here at Patreon.

I am a photographic artist based in Lubbock, Texas. I create images that express the essence of people, places, and ideas. At the heart of this expression is connection. I strive to develop honest and deep connections with my subjects, whether human or nonhuman.

I love to explore. And think. And create. And engage. And I'm excited to develop a community here where I can do all of that with and for each of you. 

While I suspect that many of you who are considering supporting me here are doing so because you already think my work is meaningful in some way, I want to try to make the experience here at Patreon a little different than Facebook or Instagram or anywhere else you might engage with me online. I want this space to be one that is more focused on you--my patrons--and what I can create that inspires you, pushes you, teaches you, strengthens you, leaves you in awe of the world and its inhabitants, and makes you crave more. 

"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." (Nayyirah Waheed)

This tier is for those interested in 'Engage the Light' workshops and photo walks. The mission of ETL is "to create a strong network of individuals who use photography as a means to engage one another and the world with compassion and creativity." The series began in 2014 as in-person workshops with military veterans in the Lubbock, Texas area. For my patreon supporters at this level, I have created an exclusive online-only version of this contemplative photography series that will guide you in my approach to photography as a daily mindfulness practice. Though we will discuss some technical aspects of photography, this is not primarily a technical class. This class is primarily about learning how to see. You'll receive a link to a private online group where you will be able to share 10 images each month based on assignments I provide. You'll be able to engage in discussion with myself and others in the class for as long as you pledge at this level.
