As far as the twit behind the lens, my name is Samantha Wells. Gun/Stain came about as a professional alias for the simple and positively banal reasons that there were already established photographers with both my full name and nick name.
Plus, guns give me a happy.
The bulk of my work either explores or is heavily influenced by two things that dominate my life - Southern culture and hypnagogia. There's an entire bevy of other influences ranging from Korean cinema to sex to American comic books, but I always seem to fall back on those two things.
I could spend a month of Sundays explaining the motivations and misgivings of what my photography means to me, but come the end of the day, I just really love cameras and what they allow me to do.
While I'm definitely open to hired work and a damned delight to work with I'm also interested in making contacts with local models and developing my body of work through TFP. However, I do require a model release form. It's just good practice and it covers both our asses.
If you're interested, please contact feel free to me.
