—I was unable to access my account here for over three months, hopefully everything is under control again now, my apologies if you did not get a response during that time—
If you are a regular at the Skin Two Rubber Ball, Torture Garden, Club Rub, Subversion, Smack or other London based fetish clubs and events you will know me by sight, even though you probably have never seen my face. I have been a resident photographer at places like this for several years.
I don't just shoot at clubs and events, though I tend to prefer interesting locations to blank studio backdrops.
I am looking to work with people, inside the fetish community and out, who enjoy expressing their own individuality, sexuality, interests and ideas rather than just needing total direction. I would be especially open to working with pairs or more of subjects who already relate to one another or can find a rapport. My strong preference is to capture a real energy rather than set up something staged (unless it really is a live or restaged performance at or from a club or event).
I am also always available to work with models who have a real liking for wearing masks and hoods (my own fetish), especially, though not necessarily, as part of latex fashion or heavy rubber outfits. And to work on the challenge of make those pictures different and unique and still showing the personality behind the mask.
I have more of a fine art and reportage agenda than a commercial one, although my work has been published regularly in Skin Two magazine and Marquis. But I am happy to trade portfolio shots for some collaborative fetish work. I would also consider working on joint website shoots supplying web resolution images on CD on a shared copyright basis.
I am in the process of drastically refreshing this page as I produce several portfolios from my body of work to date. I am hoping to use this site to reestablish contact with models I have photographed in the past as well as to seek out new collaborators.
Here is a little sampler culled from pictures I took over three successive nights in May 2008 at last year's TG Birthday Ball weekend. A full gallery of these images can be seen with a preview feature about the TG Birthday Ball 2009 here: http://thefetishistas.com/index.php?men … isplay=298
