Current Residence: Bethesda, Maryland, USA (20 years)

Words to live by: "Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend."
- Albert Camus

For any of you interested in using my stock photos, I would like to introduce my Patreon account which you can visit by clicking this link

Basically an alternative to premium point downloads here on deviantART, I offer many images on Patreon at equally high resolution under my standard Stock Rules - Creative Commons 3.0. Difference is, you get unlimited access to my ever growing gallery for one monthly subscription fee instead of having to pay for each single photo.

Starting with $2 per month for nature themes focused on waterscapes, including my number one obsession with waterfalls :) (Smile) Then moving up to $3 per month to include other elements of nature like landscapes & textures, and $5 per month for the "full package" to cover everything else like architecture, artificial creations, and photos manipulated beyond the scope of reality.

Already cringing at the thought of shameless self-promotion in this journal, and I do not expect you to subscribe out of charity. That is why I've been working very hard to populate my Patreon account with 1000 high res photos at the time of this writing. Broken down by tier levels, I estimate the following image counts:
1) Water Works Package ($2 per month): 249 photos
2) Mother Nature Package ($3 per month): 158 extra, so 249 + 158 = 407 photos
3) Yin Yang Package ($5 per month): 499 extra, so 249 + 158 + 499 = 906 photos
+ A bonus of 94 free photos for a grand total of 1000. Figuring that's a nice round number and plenty of stock for you to use, with plans to continue uploading new photos.

As I'm sure many of you can relate to, it can be very challenging to pursue a living in the creative arts. I am certainly no exception despite what might appear to be a pretty popular stock account here on deviantART. Always grateful for the support, but still very far from reaching my goals. 

Seems more often than not I am obsessed with creating new images, and everything else taking a back seat. Leaving my marketing efforts much to be desired, especially as an introvert struggling to break out my shell. Nevertheless every bit of support encourages me to keep doing what I love most, in turn I hope you can benefit from my work too. 

On that note, I leave you with some wonderful examples of how my stock has been used. Enjoy!

PS: For any new Patreon subscribers wanting the highest resolution from my stock, be sure to click the Zoom (+) icon when hovering over the preview photo in a specific post, then Save onto your device. Also open to requests in submitting images from my dA gallery not yet available on my Patreon as I realize there's still a lot of catching up for me to do.
