Have you ever wondered how long have you been at this digital world? And how long you have tried to make it as an artist; when everyone is an artist?
Her is my track record so far….3 years on wordpress; on Redbubble since 2012; on Etsy since 2013; on Imagekind since 2007… that is 12 years at least in a digital world trying to make a living from creating content/engaging audiences globally.
What I haven’t spoken of for a long time is my Patreon page – where I linked my photoes with physlosophical questions that come up when I publish a picture there. On Patreon you can support an artist who uploads creative content through a monthly contribution and help them have a steady income; I know not everyone wants to buy my stuff so how to generate an income otherwise?! I think much of my blog entries will also move over there for interactive engagement with limited content being uploaded on WordPress. (Don’ worry I will not abandon you guys; I will get all exited about something new even on here)
Here’s the tiers I run on Patreon:
- I have a friend in you: $1 or more per month ∙ only 100 available : If this is you – I already thank you! I will be giving you a shout on my Instagram and Facebook pages; you have my eternal gratitude for starting me on the journey; when something new is about to hit my Shop on Etsy or Redbubble – you will be given advance notice; I am even giving you a chance to have % off in my jewellery shop at important holiday times in the year … would 5% be ok in addition to anything else I may be running on there
My 5 tier : $5 or more per month ∙ only 20 available: If you contribute at least $5 I will send you a physical post card of one of my images every 3 months; this is limited to 20 patrons only; you will also get a shout out on my social media pages
The 15 tier: $15 or more per month ∙ only 15 avaialble: This tier is about receiving an artboard print the first time you contribute this amount (limited to 15 patrons) – the image will be one that won an exhibition spot internationally; there after every 2 months I will post a postcard to you with one of my prints from my online collection and motivational questions on the back; you will also get a shout out on my social media pages
My first $500 and then some tier: $50 or more per month: When I reach my first $500 and you have contributed at least $50 I will post to 5 lucky winners one of my favourite pictures of all times in the form of a photographic print (size: 12″ by 8″); – as you will be a monthly contributor of $50 I will every month -select a person at random to receive a classic mug with an image from my vast collection of online photos and I will even give you the choice of the album in private from where you can chose your image; -another lucky contributor (at random) will receive a spiral notebook with one of my images printed on the cover – again this image will be chosen by you from my online collection; – I am also prepared to be challenged in my creativity by you; therefore one contributor from this tier each month can chose a photographic challenge for me to achieve that month: *Note: No adult content request will be admitted; I will risk assess the challenge prior to agreeing it – if it is too risky I am not risking my neck or any one else’s to achieve it; has to be achievable in my current location in the UK – the person’s name (with consent)who challenged me will be published in an entry online that month; that person can not challenge me for another 2 months. **Note: The 1st names of the contributors who won that month will be published on my Instagram feed and Facebook page (with your consent of course) and will not be eligible for another win for the next 2 months **Note: the selection of winners will be videoed and posted as content only available to your tier
