Teresais creating photography and stories
Select a membership level
Access to my feed in which I will post two or more photos once a week. While the focus of the page is photography each pictures will also come with a brief description on my thoughts behind the camera and what the photos represent to me.
Everything from the previous two tiers plus i will include the unedited photos from the post. So you will get two posts a week, the edited photos and they motivation behind them, and the unedited photos so you can see my process.
No...I'm stuck doing this?
Fine here it goes.
Who is Teresa Warner?
Simply put, I'm a writer on a journey of self discovery and I'm inviting you along for the ride. So what in the world does photography have to do with that? Well that involves a sad little story about parental failings (as artist thats something I'm sure we're all familiar with). So here it goes. Please pardon my attempts at humor, unless you actually find them funny then you're welcome.
I grew up in a family of artist. My mother was a printmaker/painter and my father was a photographer. I have no skills drawing. Sad but true. However, from a young age I liked telling stories and I loved playing with my fathers camera. Granted that would change when my father kept his camera under lock and key. In high school I took photography classes in an attempt to prove to my father I was good at this. It didn't turn out that way. So I went full force in to writing. In a family of creatives what else are you gonna do? I tried the academic route...it was boring. I have an MFA in screenwriting and have been writing for myself since 2011. When my father passed away two years ago something changed. I still wanted to write but I wanted to explore this art he kept me barred from all my life. So I bought a camera.
Here's the problem. My knowledge around digital camera's is limited at best. In olden terms, I'm an apprentice learning my trade. The problem is my trade's expensive. So that brought me here. While writing is still my passion it doesn't pay many bills and editing software and digital camera classes are luxuries. My hope is to use Patreon as my patron. The money I make on this page will help me afford editing software and classes so I can develop my skill. Hopefully you will be able to watch an artist grow in real time. My goal is to combine the two things I am passionate about. My writing and my photographs. Each photograph will come with a story that it inspires. In this way I'm growing as both a photographer and a writer. The stories will vary in length but my goal is to put out one photograph and one story a week. As this is something I'm new to I want to make sure I'm putting out quality content. As my skill grows I may release more, but for now I'm focusing on one project a week.
This is a journey of discovery, discovering who I am as a photographer and who I am without my parents. I want to take you on this artistic journey with me. Our first trip: Finding My Father
