Professional photographer for alternative & glamour people. Burlesque & fetish fan, latex & lingerie lover, blogger, journalist, author, populist & controversialist. Looking for a Cornish muse...
Established professionally in 2006 and based in St Mawes, Cornwall and East London; Neolestat are Andy Craddock (me! photography, writing, kayaking and scuba diving; Cornwall) and Diane Lowe (media, schmoozing and promotion; London).
Our Studio & Art Gallery are currently in limbo while I concentrate on writing a book called Cornish Cuties and how I Beat my Black Dog
is a coffee table sized book part words and part photography. It's biographical and is an aspirational tale of recovery from depression through photography. It'll be a Kickstarter based project aiming to rebuild the 'neolestat' brand and launch a new brand: Cornish Cuties
. Already the project has the backing of Skin Two, the worlds largest online and in-print 'fetish' magazine and community, it will hopefully be published internationally by either Taschen or Goliath and will have UK and US promotion through a celebrity 'PR' company.
Past the book, I already own the domain names CornishCuties .com
and will be starting a modelling agency promoting models in the South West and built on a totally new business model that concentrates as much on model comfort and safety as it does on profit.
Both the book and the agency will be run partly on a Social Enterprise model with some of the profits going to charities that support model and sex-worker safety, depression and autism.
I'm currently looking for Cornish models to test for the book on a TF basis. You don't have to have been born in Cornwall just live in Cornwall (or Plymouth). I'm cheating a little here as I've always considered Saltash to be part of Plymouth and while Plymouth is technically Devon due to the Tamar, Saltash is definitely Cornwall... My project, my rules.
