Support My Work, Become A Member


I love producing the Genius Loci Digest and it will always remain free to subscribers.

It takes a day a week to produce this digest.

You can help support my work as a creative and keep this digest free and public facing by becoming a patron. There are lots of benefits too.


PATREON MEMBERSHIP - Patron Funded Photography

The best way to support my work is by making a pledge on my Patreon site.

By supporting my work via Patreon, patrons get the power to fund a full professional photo shoot to a site/place/building in the historic environment. Patrons will become my editing commissioner - with the chance to contribute to the brief and engage with the shoot.

The first site will be chosen once I reach 25 patrons. Can you help me achieve my goal?

Additionally, patrons get access to immersive content that complements the digest, including access to my Treasure Hoard Gazetteer plus a monthly members Patina newsletter that allows you to see the latest chapters of my draft book and access free hi-res photos.

There's lots more, including exclusive access to a members Twitter Circle and the opportunity to follow my travels live via the Polarsteps app. Click below for more information:
