SCROLL DOWN TO LEARN ALL ABOUT THE MOMENT OF THE MONTH CLUB

THE MISSION

To provide an immersive experience for our beloved supporters by curating a unique monthly escape to some of the most beautiful destinations this world has to offer.

FAQs

The Moment of the Month club is a way to bring you on the journey with us.  It is a way to share an immersive, honest experience with those of you who dream of travel.

For every profoundly beautiful moment we share on Facebook and Instagram, there is a story behind it.

Our goal was to find a creative way to expand the experience from beyond just social media posts.  We wanted to find a way to take you all with us! 

Once per month, we are going to get deep and personal.  We are going to share rich, detailed stories that compliment our favorite photo of the month.  This photo will be offered exclusively to our club members and will not appear on social media!

What did it take to capture that moment?  Was it carefully planned, or just serendipitous fortune?

Was it a dreamlike moment filled with unbridled exultation, or was it a grueling and exhaustive endeavor?

What challenges, opportunities, and preparation culminated in the execution of the final photo?

What is it really like to be a full-time travel and landscape photography couple, sharing small spaces for months on end?  Spoiler alert, it is not the life Instagram would have you believe!

If you have not yet viewed our sample Moment, it may be helpful to do so now.  Just click here.

We never set out to make a livelihood from our interest in travel & photography, but as those interests became uncontrollable passions, we realized we could never do anything else.

Even when we started thinking about our art as a business, we never wanted our income to come from fans of our work, if we could avoid it.

However, as we have worked to start a life together, we have realized the stress of never knowing if/when the next paying opportunity will come. 

We live by the mantra, “money is not the answer, it is a problem that needs to be solved.”  Our hope is that this can be the first step in solving that problem.

We have also come to realize that many of you find joy in what we do and
want a way to support us!  The Moment of the Month Club is also a way for those who see value in the time we give to our audience and craft each day to provide some financial support.  Our hope is that through this one endeavor, we have a small source of stable income that we can count on to pay rent, without creating a significant financial burden for our fans.

We don’t want anyone to feel financially burdened or priced-out of joining the Moment of the Month Club!

After much discussion, we landed on a commitment of just $1.50 per month for the STANDARD Membership. 

There is also the ART LOVERS membership for just $1 more.  This includes everything you get with the STANDARD membership, plus a discount code for 10% off ALL PRINTS for the entire Moment of the Month photo gallery.

We truly hope this price point feels reasonable and affordable for everyone.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO JOIN BUT CANNOT AFFORD TO, PLEASE SEND US AN EMAIL!

We want EVERYONE who finds joy in what we do to feel INCLUDED.  If you are not comfortable supporting us financially, we will work to provide an alternative and agreeable solution.

We wanted to begin with a very simple idea to create a more immersive, entertaining experience for our audience.  However, we are already considering what other things we could do to provide even more value.

Some of the membership upgrades we are considering offering in the future include:

  • An aspiring photographer’s membership option, providing EXIF data, detailed descriptions of techniques used, compositional considerations, behind-the-scenes video, and even a video walk through of our post processing workflow for the Moment of the Month hero photo.
  • An exclusive group for members only to share their own moments, meet up with us, get travel and photography insights, etc.
  • Members-only discounts / invites to photography workshops.
  • Fine Art print raffles
  • And whatever else YOU suggest!

We are so excited you want to become a member!  This is going to be a lot of fun.

To sign up, all you have to do is click here or on the button below.
