I've been really wanting to join, but I'm still a little intimidated by it. There are so many people out there who are violently opposed to it because they believe all content should be free in spite of what it takes to create and arguing against that is like arguing with a chicken >.> I'll get the chutzpah to join eventually I hope

I know how you feel. :iconsootheplz: I am like, if I join, then what? Then there's the whole, just  because I am there doesn't mean people are likely going to spend bucks to support or learn stuff that someone else might have been already doing? And, I wonder about the whole chugging 3-4 artworks bi-weekly. :lol: Maybe, month.... >_>

And, yea, the whole against thing is something I considered as well. Also, this might lead to some other type of works that ones' general viewers might not be more keen of. Like, generally, if I like the artworks you are doing and showcasing now on your gallery, and then suddenly, you are payed to do just 'fanservice', that might not be something the other 'group' likes, or would like you to get more of the stuff you already do. Also, the whole learning content thing....baaah.

I don't know why, but that word, 'chutzpah' is hilarious! :lol:

I've been half debating joining as a mechanism of sharing some of the oodles of WIP's and old stuff I have, as well as give me an excuse to get Creative Cloud for video editing so that I can make video tutorials...  I probably need to make a poll to test interest as well! XD

True, true. You could use some of the money you get for paying for the CC options. Also, you could try gumroad for those who just want one off options. :P

I'm wondering whether to join or not. I'm not sure how well photographers ever do there but I haven't done a huge amount of research yet so I reckon I still have a lot to learn about the platform before I decide whether it's worth putting time into or not. I'm intrigued to hear about other people's experiences :)

Aren't there photographers who usually do those uhh..what do you call them..workshops (yess that one!) for photographers (beginners or otherwise) who want to learn from that particular photographer? Perhaps, something similar could be done through Patreon, I suppose? I think there are a few other places like Patreon out there but in a different way that doesn't look like a full workshop but could work in a similar fashion? Zhang Jingna has one with Learnedsquare so, I suppose something of that nature for Patreon? (Though, it may not fully be to that level what with if you offer those lower $1 levels. Might just need a lot of levels depending on what you do.

That's a really good idea. I've been thinking of doing stuff like that for YouTube too but still haven't gotten around to actually making it happen.
