I specialize in alternative and underground nightlife, fashion and portraiture, and I've created several iconic images that document the goth, fetish, and punk scenes.
I've been Published in the US and Europe, and I contributed to "Gothic: Dark Glamour" a book by fashion historian Valerie Steele in connection with the Museum at FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology) in New York City.
Recently, I collaborated with performance artist Heather Cassils on her piece “Becoming and Image,” sponsored by Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE) as part of “Pacific Standard Time.”
Have a look at my website, www.ericcharles.com
. I often update my photos there before MM.
Right now I'm looking to do TF* with agency models only. I'm interested in confidant-looking (not waif-ish or ethereal) models for b+w hard-light images like my avatar picture (without the collar - there will be NO fetish element whatsoever). I provide a stylist and MUA.
FRIEND REQUESTS: I use MM as a professional networking site ONLY. That means I'm only adding people that I want to work with (or have worked with). If I don't add you, it's nothing personal! It's not that I don't like you or don't love your work, it's just that you're not fitting in to my current portfolio needs.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Unless you're a personal friend, I DO NOT ADD OTHER PHOTOGRAPHERS. There's no point to it: this is not a social networking site for me.
Thanks for understanding.
