Mayhem # 31036
Fetish, pin-up, glamour, Fine-art photographer with emphasis on cutting edge latex fashion couture shots. I've been into traditional film photography for years, but in the last 9 have delved heavily into the streamlined workflow of hi HIGH REZ digital. Interested most in working with people (models, stylists, make-up artists etc.) who collaborate and ADD to the creative process. I always have plans for my shoots, but that doesn't preclude onset synthesis of kick-ass ideas from all involved.
Halo lighting, customized guerrilla ring-flash setups, mirrorless, to Canon 5D mk III are my current areas of concentration.
Strongly motivated to create images that rock people back on their heels in appreciation and pleasure/surprise/shock/satisfaction.
I've also got a quaint love for traditional portrait and headshot photography (don't TELL anyone!) Avedon, Karsh, and even Steiglitz for those high brows in the crowd. Strongest fetish photographer influences to date are Bob Carlos Clarke & Eric Kroll.
Marcus Grey, Banksy, Brom, Ignacious Noe, Amy Brown (don't laugh!) and Ward are others on the non-photographic influence side.
