About Me

My name is Jim O'Connor. I'm a photographer, graphic designer, and writer. I primarily work with alt-models, often doing visual themes based on my poetry. Sometimes the visual concept serves as inspiration for the poem. Other times, the poem comes first, serving as a conceptual vision and the imagery follows. Dominant themes are those of a dark and sombre nature with strong female protagonists. Emphasis is often on the juxtaposition of beauty and sensuality with that of loneliness, decay, and abandonment. This is my primary passion. Still, I do not limit myself to those themes. It's important to have an identity as an artist, but just as important to be dynamic.
Art is about expanding the mind and pushing the limits of creation. Stepping outside your comfort zone and embracing new challenges.

Please message me for rates. Each shoot is custom and I am very reasonable.

I do very limited TF work, and only if I feel it will benefit both the model and myself mutually. If you are interested in doing a TF shoot with me don't hesitate to ask, but please don't be offended if I decline. It is always business, never personal. Every TF shoot should be a collaboration of creativity that will enrich all involved. It's all about the art. And please, serious inquiries only!
