Introducing The Fuji X Weekly Creative Collective!

The Fuji X Weekly Creative Collective is a new aspect of this website that begun just a couple days ago, and it’s something that you might have noticed but don’t know what it is. I’ve been asked several times now, “What exactly is the Creative Collective?” Here’s my explanation of it…

The Creative Collective is a bonus-content subscription, where you get access to extra articles. What kind of content is a part of the Creative Collective? These articles are largely exercises in creativity. They’re experiments, focused on trying new things, and they’re invitations for you to do it, too. We dive deeper into settings and techniques. We go down some rabbit holes just to see where they go. This is a journey, and it will be interesting to see what we discover together. Whether you are an experienced Fujifilm shooter or brand-new to photography, there is something for everyone. If you want to adventure with me on this, the Fuji X Weekly Creative Collective is only $2 (USD) per month.

I usually post between 15 and 25 articles each month that are free to everyone—this includes film simulation recipes. I’m not sponsored by anyone. Fujifilm doesn’t sponsor this website, nor does B&H, KEH, or anybody else. I don’t get paid for the content that I publish, other than a little ad revenue, which isn’t much and barely covers the expenses of web hosting and such. These additional articles are bonus content for Creative Collective subscribers, and are in addition to the regular 15 to 25 articles that I will continue to publish each month. If you subscribe, there’s even more Fuji X Weekly articles for you to enjoy!

The main hub of the Fuji X Weekly Creative Collective is the Creative Collective Corner. That’s where you’ll find all of the Creative Collective articles. So far, because I just launched this, there are three articles: Stacking Diffusion Filters, When Film Simulation Bracket is Actually Useful, and Double Exposure Art — A Simple Method. Obviously there will be more and more added as time goes on.

To join the Fuji X Weekly Creative Collective, simply click on any of the Creative Collective articles and select Subscribe. If this sounds interesting to you, I hope that you’ll join me on this journey!

    I would happily subscribe if you removed the ads on the website.

      I would definitely need to charge more than $2 in that case. The ads are annoying, and it would be nice to not have to have them, for certain. I appreciate the suggestion!
      The larger point of the Creative Collective is if this is something that you find interesting and want to be a part of, you are welcome to join. I’m spending even more of my time (on top of what I already do) on this, so that’s why there’s a (very) small fee. It’s completely optional, absolutely no obligation or pressure. If you want to, then join, if you don’t want to, then don’t. It’s just extra for those who may might extra, and it’s no big deal whatsoever if someone doesn’t.

    Hi. I’d subscribe if there was a PayPal option. Not so keen on having my credit card out there…

    • Ritchie Roesch · September 3

      The payments are handled via Stripe. This is how WordPress does it, they don’t provide a different option. I don’t collect or have access to anyone’s personal information. I hope that all makes sense.

        Thanks Ritchie I noticed you have got a PayPal donation link so I assume it’s only subscribing that requires Stripe?

      • Ritchie Roesch · September 5

        Yeah, the Creative Collective is run through a WordPress feature called “Premium Content” and Stripe is who WordPress uses for that. It’s something those two companies have worked out, and you and I are at their mercy, I guess, for better or worse.
