Welcome to the Around the Lens Patreon page! Around the Lens is a live, weekly, roundtable discussion podcast devoted all things visual journalism. Each week a group of subject matter experts break down news, topics and gear related to photojournalism and documentary filmmaking. We've had many notable figures on our show who represent the career field and news related to our 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 more time to not only creating more shows, but also helping to make aroundthelens.com an educational and informational hub for all things visual journalism related. If we get enough support we'd like to reinvest in the community and will work to contribute the money to things that will help visual journalists succeed. Thanks for your support.
Tiers
Welcome to the Family

Suggest a Topic!
$5 or more per month

You get to suggest a topic! That's right, you'll get the opportunity to suggest a topic for a show during the month that you contribute $5. Please keep in mind that any topic suggested should relate to visual journalism in some way and shouldn't be a duplicate of a previously discussed topic, unless there is another take you on it you think we should discuss. Also get early access to all video content we create with the exception of the podcast.

Be a Panelist
$10 or more per month only 3 left

You get to be a panelist! That's right you can appear on the show as a panelist! You mist have at least a web cam, internet connection and be able to use Google Hangouts (it's super easy and we'll help you if necessary). The only thing I ask of you is that you have some background or experience in visual journalism and be able to talk about topics related to visual journalism for about an hour and a half. Also get the benefits from all previous tiers. 

Run the Show!
$100 or more per month only 1 left

You're the show host! That's right, you get to pick the topics, the guest panelists and run the whole shabang!!! Have fun and tell us how it went afterwards. Also get all other benefits as well.

Goals
$10 of $100 per month
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.
