First of all, thanks to everyone who has supported us through Patreon. When we initially launched couldn’t have imagined the response we’d receive from the community. Thank you from the bottom of your hearts.
In 2018 we are trying something a little different with our $10 Patreon reward. Starting in February, we will be removing all previous photography from Patreon posts and will instead be e-mailing download links to the monthly photo sets to active Patrons at the beginning of each month.
Hosting the images on Flickr worked okay, but our new system will ensure you have the highest resolution images possible. This also means that patrons only receive photo sets for the months in which they’ve contributed. If you support us for 5 months in 2018, those 5 photo sets are yours for supporting us during those months. If someone signs up in March, they will not automatically have access to the previous photos sent in January and February. We think this will feel better for our long time supporters, and we think it will feel better for us providing them as well.
We haven’t forgotten about our long-time supporters! As a huge thank you for supporting us, any active patron who supported us in 2017 will get access to all of the photo sets we’ve posted in the last year, re-mastered and in higher resolutions. [Read more…] about Upcoming Patreon changes for 2018
