About EMiSpicer

Hi! My name is EMiSpicer and I like to take photos.

Since August of 2010, I've traveled around the world taking photos at events at the intersections of music, games, and art. I was originally aspiring to be a music photographer when I stumbled into Babycastles events, which introduced me to the games community. Back then, I didn't have a clear plan for existing in that space. I had brought my camera with me to practice and hopefully become a better photographer. But as time went on I fell in love with the community and invented a title for myself: video game culture photographer. I still did music photography too, especially for the chiptune community, but I was probably best known for my work in games. My goal has been to show this strange and amazing things to the world, while showing others what it felt like to be there. I've created a lot of work I'm really proud of, and taken recognizable photos all over the world.

The way I work has changed a lot over the years. I've worked too hard and burned myself out more times than I can count! So now I'm focusing on trying to find new ways to create while staying healthy. I guess that's what happens when you get older, hey? So while my ambitions in the past were to create more and better, right now I'm just trying to do good and steady.

Patreon has been part of how I share what I'm working on since 2013. I've always had ambitious plans for how I used this space -- maybe a little too ambitious, sometimes. That's okay though, and I've learned a lot. I have some cool plans for ways I can thank you for your support without making things too stressful for me. I hope you'll give me a chance to show you what's up my sleeve.

Right now, I'd love for your support to help me find healthier ways to create while I figure out what's next for me. Your support has always been crucial to the work I do, and I couldn't be more appreciative. I've made a lot of cool stuff over the years with all of you by my side. I hope you'll considering joining in while I find new ways to share with all of you. I'll keep taking photos, and share even more than that with you. 

Thank you for supporting me. I can't wait to show you what you've made possible.

$129.30 of $350 per month
I'll be guaranteed one plane ticket a month! This will secure my ability to travel to events as I find out about them. If there's a month where I cannot find an event to travel to, I'll be able to save that money for international travel.

If this goal is achieved, I'll be able to do more consistent Games on Planes updates. Won't that be fun?! (It will)
