I've been working mostly with models doing nude/erotic material, but by no means view nudity as a requirement to working with a model, that's just where the money has been :) Looking to expand my portfolio, and my abilities, working together with models and other photographers. I'm always open to ideas, and working TF is acceptable if the schedule allows :) Would love to help your portfolio if I can!
and now a message from our moderators.....

But i did win it, everyone knows that, I will say it was disqualified if you like. I don't think lying is the proper way to handle things. I do have it edited, does it need more coverage or just taken down altogether?

The image is not appropriate for a publicly viewable page.

- Some Mature Images are allowed, but can only be posted within your portfolio or in contests that explicitly allow them (check applicable contest rules to be sure).

Actually, the contest finished and I did win, by a landslide! But I fully understand that even though MM is completely fine with images of women being beaten, bloodied, tied up and gagged, crying and terrified....all of this is just fine with them, that's "Artistic".....but have her leg lifted up in this picture and OMG how can we save our minds from this horrible atrocity!! Every person on earth will undoubtedly see a woman's privates at some point in person during their life, it is a natural and beautiful part of life, but the portrayed abuse you guys put above pictures like the one you're complaining about....most people will NEVER see something like that for real. Awesome choice. Makes you wonder what kind of people could accept those kinds of portrayals, letting young minds view them, making all the members of this site believe that it's ok. I will pull the tag, but I don't see how it hurts you guys to allow the truth of the matter be told.....oh that's right, I need to have raped and beaten women in my pictures, that should make you all happy.
I should say this much to you.....I looked at your profile, and if you care or not I think you have a wonderful body of work. I understand that you do not set the rules here at MM, but you do have an aversion to "Pornography" whatever your definition may be. I don't direct my frustration at you, you just happen to be the messenger at this point. I find it funny that it was brought to your attention by anyone, maybe because the 29th was missing. Anyway, quit allowing women to be shown tied up gagged and beaten....maybe the whole world would actually change for the better if the focus was to eliminate the glorification of violence and oppression, instead of attacking images of something that everyone will see or do at some point...makes no sense to me at all.
