I'd like to start by thanking you for seeking out my Patreon page and for thinking of supporting my content creation efforts. I have received numerous emails over the last few months asking about where individuals could send donations to help with my content. I was not sure about how to answer, so for a long time I asked that donations be made to charity or to other 2A channels who are proving great content. The emails continued to come along but more and more requested that I look into creating a Patreon for supporters and I have heeded their advice.
As you are probably aware, creating a significant amount of 2A and gear-related content while being a full-time nurse is not easy, nor is the process without expense. While the shooting and buying gear are part of a hobby which I freely spend on, extra funding helps me to properly capture and share the experience in higher-quality with the world. Funds donated by patrons will be used to improve the quality of the content by upgrading cameras, lenses, lights, microphones, approaches, etc.
As a Patreon, you will receive access to high-resolution version of the photos and videos that I post to my social media channels. Unfortunately, IG and FB both reduce the quality of what is uploaded even though I am using really nice gear to capture it in as large of a format as possible. My videos are usually 4K and my photos are sometimes huge with my Sony camera. You'll be able to see those version here. In addition, I'll be uploading behind-the-scenes type content showing you new gear as it arrives before it shows up on my other channels, updating you with projects I'm planning, and just giving you an inside track as a member of my core audience. You'll also help me to decide how to best spend your pledge dollars.
