Hi, I'm Julia, and I'm a freelance photographer based in Liverpool in northwest England. Some of you may know me as Tetisheri, and I photograph ancient Egyptian artefacts and people working in the museums and archaeology sector, as well as exploring and photographing local heritage and culture.
Despite having spent several years photographing artefacts
professionally, the woefully under-financed museums just don't have the
money to keep me earning a year-round salary. I do what I do either at a vastly reduced rate or for free so that I can continue to support the museums I work with.
Your support on Buy Me a Coffee means that I can keep making photographs without having to wait for a museum to win a funding bid for an exhibition. It means that I can:
- photograph artefacts for museums who wouldn't otherwise be able to afford professional photography
- keep documenting the amazing work of curators, conservators and archaeologists
- help raise awareness of the joy of visiting and supporting heritage wherever you may live
- help you learn to use photography as a creative hobby for your own wellbeing
- publish my work by creating a book of photographic highlights each year, as well as occasional, more comprehensive project-based books
- do all those boring things like eat and pay my bills
It also allows me to work flexibly to support my Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, which limits how often I can leave the house. Being able to go out with my camera two or three times a month, then spend the rest of the time working from home means I can get the most out of my time to bring my photography to you.
Thanks for being interested in my work and for considering patronage. If you’re still not sure about any aspect of Buy Me a Coffee, you can tweet me at @Tetisheri13, or drop me a message via my website. I hope to hear from you real soon.
