(formerly known as S+S Photography)
I'm Serge, and my primary interests in people photography lie at the intersection of fashion and fetish. You can see more of my work at deviantART - or simply scroll down to the Lists section and check out "Photos I've Taken" to see more of my photos here on MM. Feel free to contact anyone I've worked with for a reference.
If I've sent you a friend request, I'm interested in working with you.
Please do not send me a friend request if you're not at least 18, it will not be accepted. While it's not all I do, I do shoot fetish, and am committed to only working with models 18 years of age or older.
I'm looking for models interested in the following genres:
- Alternative Glamour (goth, industrial, cyber, punk, etc)
- Period Style (Victorian, Edwardian, etc)
- Fetish (corsetry, latex/PVC, BDSM, etc)
- Bondage (japanese, western, suspension, etc)
I love working with freaks and weirdos, kinksters and carnies, dissidents and deviants. Got unusual talents or strange interests? Let's shoot.
I style many of my shoots, so I have a fair amount of wardrobe available - mainly in the retro/goth/victorian/fetish themes you can see running through my work. Of course, I welcome your own outfits as well. The crazier and more elaborate the better.
A note about the rope work you see in my photos, since I've gotten a few questions about it - yes, it's done by me as well. If you are interested in shooting rope, I'll be happy to answer any questions you might have - and as always when shooting fetish themes, I encourage you to check out references. (And by that, I don't mean asking the photographer to give you some - selection bias - just contact some of the models they've worked with.)
I'm an amateur photographer - this is a hobby and I do not make money off my work. As such, I mainly work on a TF* basis. My goal for each shoot is to produce work that is usable both by me and the model for portfolio purposes, etc. Creative collaborations are welcomed and encouraged.
There are occasional times where I will shoot for a commercial purpose (website content, etc) - contact me regarding specific projects.
I'm located in central NJ, within easy reach of public transportation from both NYC and Philly. I'm mobile and more than happy to do location shoots if an interesting one is available.
If I've sent you a friend request, I'd like to work with you at some point - I apologize if it's not always accompanied by a message, but I prefer to save that until I have an opportunity to discuss a shoot/concrete concept.
Some common questions and answers:
What will I get from the shoot?
Normally I will provide you with all low-res raw images from the shoot, from which together we will pick several that I will edit and provide you with high-res images (I can provide prints as well). If you require a different arrangement, let me know, I'm very flexible. My main request is simply not to post images that I have not had the chance to properly clean up.
Also, full rights are shared - you're free to do what you want with the final images.
Can I bring an escort?
Of course, well behaved escorts are not a problem.
Can you cover my travel expenses?
Yes, as long as you're not flying in.
How long will your edits take?
I don't sit on images - you'll have them within a couple of weeks (usually much less than that).
Where do you shoot?
I have a studio setup at home - I'm also mobile and available for location shoots. Please note that I have a kitty, in case you are allergic.
If you don't show up for a scheduled shoot, or cancel without reasonable notice, I cannot shoot with you again. I respect your time and schedule, please respect mine.
