About Around the Lens

Welcome to the Around the Lens Patreon page! Around the Lens is a live, weekly, roundtable discussion podcast devoted to all things visual journalism. Each week a group of subject matter experts break down news, topics and gear related to photojournalism, broadcast journalism and documentary filmmaking. We've had many notable figures on our show who represent the career field to include Eros Hoagland, Stacy Pearsall, Rick Friedman and Joe McNally among many others. With your support we hope to be able to devote time to not only creating more shows, but also helping to make an educational and informational hub for all things visual journalism. If we get enough support, we'd like to reinvest in the community and work to contribute to things that will help visual journalists succeed. Thanks for your support!

Each week Zach and I sit down with newsmakers and visual journalism professional to discuss news of the week other other topics related to our career field. It takes time and energy to make the show happen on a weekly basis and it'd be great to be compensated for that time monetarily. By earning at least $100 a month it would prove that there are people out there who believe in the show enough to invest in it monetarily and give Zach and I the additional drive and time to make it even better. Some ideas we'd like to use the money towards include a custom intro and outro music, an animated logo, and better live-feed production values.
