About Nicky Newman

www.nickynewmanphotography.com

Hello and welcome.

I'm in the process of creating a new way of living and working, so a big thank you for your interest and support and being a part of this experimental journey.  

I've been working flat out for the past 25 years as a documentary filmmaker in South Africa;  producing, directing, shooting and editing.   I've also worked on the Boards of amazing industry organisations doing voluntary work teaching filmmaking and media literacy all over the world and helping to grow the South African film and TV sectors.  

Although deeply fulfilling and exciting, making films, especially documentary films in SA is not an easy, stable or lucrative career by any means and I've often had to do many other jobs along the way to keep the films and life afloat.  
Photography ran along side all of this, as a kind of creative release valve.

I ended up wearing myself right out and had to step out of the world for a few years
to learn some hard but essential life lessons. But there's aways an up side to everything and during this time I started playing around with my stills camera to keep myself occupied.  I  began posting my pictures to Facebook and people responded with much enjoyment and encouragement and I focused on developing my photography more by exhibiting, taking masterclasses, submitting work for publication, taking on commissioned series etc. 
By supporting me on Patreon, you will give me the creative freedom to focus more of my time and energy on shooting material that may not be "commercially viable" but that needs to be documented, (like my work with animal shelters and other NGOs) to grow my online photography world - website, blog, teaching, sharing, selling etc.  I've come to a place where I know that this is what I need/want to be doing full time.  

It's also a safe space for me to share my creative ideas and projects with a select group of people as I often don't feel that comfortable doing that on larger public platforms.  

I'm setting up my Patreon page over the next few weeks, it's still a skeleton, but I wanted to get started immediately before making the video that introduces me and explains how it all works, adding free photographs for you to download etc.  

There are a number of different ways of structuring this Patreon thing,
I have chosen a monthly amount and am hoping people will gain enough
from what I'm offering to continue supporting for at least 12 months
but of course you can change that anytime.  

When you click the “Become a Patron” button, select how much you want to pledge per month.
You can pay with PAYPAL or a credit card.  
You'll be charged automatically, and can adjust or cancel your pledge anytime.

I will also be offering (this list is a work-in-progress):

  • photographic tutoring and feedback,
  • processing and touching up of your own photos
  • giving tips and advise on my blog and 
  • offering fine art prints of my work
  • various special offers along the way
I welcome any feedback or input about photos, series, this platform etc.
