"Thank you for your support in pursuing our passion for photography. This magazine is the culmination of refining our skills for many years, and is a showcase of our best work from Calgary and across the world. It allows us the chance to work collaboratively with other community members and we are excited to launch the first issue of Vantage in 2017. We hope to grow this vision into a medium where amateur and professional photographers can show off their work in print, to share with their friends and loved ones. It is a source of pride to have your work printed and we are excited to be on this journey together with you!" - Riley Kearl

"We are proud to announce a new way to share modern methods of visual media, we will be sharing our work and the works of others in our city through Vantage our printed magazine. We believe this magazine will be a great addition to your home as an inspirational piece that provokes conversation, and as an interactive work of art sparking curiosity in the city in which we reside. Thank you to all of my family, friends, and co-workers for your support in our project." - Jermaine Ilao

We aim to use these funds to help fuel our vision, and get the first few issues of our magazine in physical print. Though meant as a recurring magazine, we do not intend for our work to be for the purpose of profit, but solely with the intent to share art and make it accessible to anyone's lifestyle as art.

Riley and I have spent the last few months working on outlines for our magazine and future issues, lining up our guest contributors and themes for the coming year. Recently we started our research to have the magazine in print for at least the premiere issue, and it's proven to be an expensive venture.  With your help, we hope to distribute our magazine to those who enjoy seeing our work and the works of others around us.

We hope this may be of interest to you, and know that your contribution allows aspiring artists such as Riley and I to grow and share our passion with the world.

(This magazine is not for profit, and is intended to be a local Calgary asset.)

With the traction from our launch of our magazine, we want to allow everyone the chance to support us with these earlybird rewards! As our project grows, we want everyone to know that projects like these are made possible by people like you! We can't keep these costs down forever, so earlybird pricing will be available until the end of January 15th, 2017.

This was supposed to be an update to thank everyone for reaching 50% of our stretch goal yesterday.

Instead this update is our extreme thanks to our supporters for instead reaching 80% of our stretch goal! Riley and I cannot thank you enough for allowing our vision come closer to a reality. With your donations we know we can make an amazing thing happen.

As the campaign continues to run, we hope we can exceed our goal to allow our project to go above and beyond what we had first planned. Whether that may be adding more pages to feature a guest artist more prominently, or adding a second guest, to possibly having special issues made for a charitable purpose, we know you want to see something bigger and better! Built by a community of support, we aim to let our magazine support our community around us too!

Again our thanks go out to all of our supporters, and we hope we can reach our goal soon!

Barely a day ago we had excitement to post our thanks for reaching 50% of our goal, but that was bumped to thank all of you for contributing more than 80% of our stretch goal instead!

Today I am proud to announce the amazing support from everyone, in less than seven days since the public posting of this campaign we are only $30 away from our goal! All thanks to you, our supporters for sharing and donating to our campaign.

We are going to make this magazine bigger and better as we go along with this campaign. Stay tuned for more updates as we share our success with you! Thank you so much for your donation and time to support us.

Thank you!

Thank you everyone for your support with our campaign!

We are so thankful for everyone and their contributions to our project, and we want to make it even more amazing with you in mind!

As we reach over our initial $1,500 CAD goal, we'd like to see if we can reach $2,000 CAD to add more pages and contributors to our future issues!

A magazine like this is impossible without people like you, with the funds we have now that dream is a reality. The more we can raise, the more we can give back to you, our audience, our support.

Thank you for this amazing week of contributions, we can't wait to show you what we have lined up!

---

Just a reminder to all of our supporters, our earlybird pricing ends at midnight on January 15th, 2017 (MST), we hope you will continue to support us through this journey as we finalize the first issue, nearly ready for print!


---

As we near our new bracket goal of $2,000 CAD, we would like to share our new developing ideas for the coming issues.


Although our focus in our magazine is primarily photography, we wish to feature other mediums of art including painting, textile work, and others as our magazine grows! We have been overwhelmed by those who wish to contribute content to our future issues, and we hope that you may also support their ventures with us.

If you or anyone you know would be interested in contributing to our magazine, please feel free to reach out to us!

Thank you to all of our supporters, and future supporters to come! Stay tuned for more updates!

We can't find enough words to thank all of you our supporters, with the success of our campaign!

It's been an amazing journey so far, reaching our goals twice over all because of you!

Today we celebrate going over our second goal of $2,000 CAD! We never expected such numbers in our campaign, and we are excited to know we have as many supporters as we do here.

Now that we continue to grow, the magazine has new sections anticipated for future issues, with expansion into artisans who don't specialize in photography but create amazing visual works with paint, words, and many other mediums.

This project would have only been a dream if it wasn't for all of you, our friends and family, our supporters of this amazing idea Riley and I have worked hard to bring to fruition.

Thank you everyone, for your contributions, sharing our campaign, and cheering us on. It means so much to us to see this where it is now!

---

Riley and I will continue to work hard to make this as amazing as it should be, with our Premiere issue now in the proofing stage we will soon have printed copies to show off in just a few weeks!

Now comes our next goal to share, will you help us raise $2,500 CAD?

Thank you to our supporters for keeping the momentum going with our campaign! Our new stretch goal of $2,500 CAD nears closer as we continue to push the bar to make the magazine better than ever!

We wanted to share our excitement as we eagerly await the first set of prints to arrive locally from the printers. There is nothing more amazing than seeing your idea become a reality, with each step being checked off down the list, ahead of schedule!

Riley and I invite you to share our campaign with potential guest contributors, so we may continue to meet with candidates of a variety of mediums, from photography, painting, fashion, and more! We recently started work on the draft of our second issue, and we can't wait for everyone to see how much it has transformed from the premiere issue.

Stay tuned for more, there is so much coming around the corner!
