Hello and Welcome! I take photos and I want your help taking more and better ones!

How I came to this idea was a friend of mine had this great idea of making an Instagram account for my super photogenic cat, Charms. Thus, @luckofthecharms was born! But here's the deal: I'm living with my parents and I'm not taking more photos of my wonderful cat. What's a person to do?

The idea is simple: I take photos of my wonderful cat, Charms, and you -- yes you, you wonderful person you -- help me take more and better photos of Charms through supporting me on Patreon! 

I want to do photography as a means of expressing a talent of mine to the extent possible. You -- there you are again -- can take me one step closer to that becoming a reality. With the support of my Patrons, I'll be able to save up for photography equipment to take better photos, move out and take care of Charms on my own, and maybe set up an online store where you could buy Charms t-shirts and photos! And, when I get enough support, I can get another cat for Charms to mold into a cat of his kind...Muwahahahaha! *ahem* Mrow meow mrow mrowwwwwwww! Yes, that sounds better :D (pssst wondering where he got his name? Charms was the name he came with from the previous owner. He says he thought of Lucky Charms and naming him "Lucky" but thought the name was too boring. So he named him Charms instead. Fantastic name, eh?)

Ideas for rewards I have are silly and wonderful: a Patron exclusive newsletter to keep you up on Charm's comings and goings, photo requests, shout outs to your Instragram account, photos signed by Charms, and with enough support you can get printed posters and even a photo project done by yours truly!

In all seriousness, I want to pursue this passion of photography and I am going to make this into something I can support myself (and Charms of course) with. For now, this will focus solely on raising support to take more and better photos of Charms. I hope to grow this further -- photo shoots, weddings and events, landscapes and portraits, and critiques and live one-on-one advice calls.

Be sure to follow us on Charms' Instagram @luckofthecharms. Cheers!
