About

I find the imagery of a beautiful dominant women dressed head to toe in tight black leather to be exceedingly erotic to the point where it is a passion for me. It is this passion that drove me to become a fetish photographer, the desire to capture this eroticism without any nudity is what drives me. Some might simply see a woman dressed in unique attire but I see a goddess worthy of worship!

Frequently Asked Questions

How did you get started in photography?

I bought a Pentax MZ-50 in December 1999 and just started taking photos. I read numerous books on the subject, bought a dozen or so magazines and read countless articles on the Internet. Although I do not have any formal training in photography, I have attended a number of courses.

Where do you get your models?

The majority of my models are actually friends or acquaintances that I meet through friends. If a girl has a unique look or style that I like I will approach her and enquire about a possible photo shoot.

What do you look for in models?

Generally, I like working with a variety of looks. I don't have one particular style that I'm after. The most important qualities that I look for have to do more with personality than outward appearance. I like girls who don't take themselves too seriously and are willing to laugh at themselves. I don't like primadonnas or bad attitudes.

As far as appearance, No or minimal tattoos and/or piercings. I like girls that have a great sense of personal style. Unique style and beauty go a long way with me. I like looks that borrow from past eras (especially 1920s through the 1970s). A good wardrobe is also a big help, but not a necessity as I have a friend who sells this type of clothing and can always borrow from her.

Do you pay your models?

It really depends on the type of shoot and the model's level of experience amongst other things. Usually shoots are done in exchange for photos for the model and photographer's portfolio.

Do models ever pay you?

I do accept personal commissions. Please contact me for more information.

I run an adult website. May I use your photos on my site?

Generally I do not like to have my work on other sites. If your site is artistic and intelligent in nature, then I will consider doing something with you. This will be decided on a case-by-case basis.

What are your inspirations?

I find music to be extremely inspiring. This is why I enjoy photographing live music performances and musicians. My favorite band is VNV Nation, the music is so layered and the lyrics are very thought provoking.

Favourite fetish photographers?

Steve Diet Goedde, Natasha Epperson and Raphael Class have all been instrumental in my development and desire to be a fetish photographer. Their early work was often monumental and revolutionary.

What kind of camera/film do you use?

Currently I shoot on a Nikon D7000 body with battery grip and Nikon 14-24mm F2.8, 24-70mm F2.8 and 70-200mm F2.8 zoom lenses. I also find a Nikon SB-910 speedlight indispensable and a Manfrotto tripod to be very useful.

What hardware and software do you use?

I do all of my photo editing on an Apple MacBook Pro. Adobe Lightroom is used for workflow (importing photographs, categorising them and making backups to external hard drives). For actual photo editing I use Adobe Photoshop.

Now What?

Your boyfriend or husband just asked you to dress up in black leather, tie him up and beat the crap out of him with a riding crop. You may be feeling shocked, disgusted or even hurt or perhaps you're open minded and willing to explore this but you're unsure about everything. Read on...

The first thing NOT to do is freak out, call him a dirty pervert and get into a fight with him although this may have already happened. Instead, realize how mich courage it took for him to tell you his deepest darkest secret. Thank him for being so open and honest with you even if you don't like what he has told you.

The second thing is to tell him that you will need time to think about how you feel about all of this. This is a reasonable request and he should respect that. Tell him that you are not saying NO outright but you are also not saying YES. Tell him that you may want to know more and will ask him some questions later once you are feeling less shocked. He should be comfortable with this and respect your wishes.

The first step in trying to understand all of this is to realize that people all differ and that some people like things which other people don't. For example some people like vanilla ice cream and others like chocolate. And yet still others prefer rum and raisin.

At this point you should start doing some research on the topic of BDSM. At this stage I must warn you though, this is a very broad spectrum of things and you are going to learn about things you never imagined. What you need to realize is that not everything covered by the term BDSM is everyone's cup of tea. See it as a table at a large banquet with massive amounts of different food from which to choose, someone might prefer the duck over the wild boar. Its is the same with BDSM, some prefer high heel shoes over boots.

What is a Fetish?

A fetish is an object or situation that causes someone to become sexually aroused, and often the person may need the object or situation in order to reach climax. There are varying degrees of fetishism and many different types of fetishes.

Some very typical examples of fetishes include high heels, stockings and leather. In fact, leather and high heels are probably some of the most common fetishes.

What is BDSM?

BDSM is an acronym that stands for 3 things namely: Bondage and Discipline (BD), Dominance and Submission (DS) and Sado Masochism (SM).

Why would someone want this?

This may be a hard pill to swallow but its because it feels good for them. Bondage can actually be quite comfortable, being tied up and unable to move is a very interesting experience. Pain releases adrenaline and endorphins which give what is known as a natural high. You may have heard of athletes talking about a runner's high, the pain inflicted through BDSM achieves similar effects.

Getting spanked on the buttocks can be very arousing sexually because the buttocks is so close to the genitals. But not all pain feels good, as a masochist I can tell you that bumping my little toe against the coffee table is very painful and does not cause me to become aroused at all. Yet when a beautiful dominant women takes a flogger to my ass I find it to feel very good and arousing.

Some people really enjoy the role reversal of power exchange. Usually a man is expected to be dominant and take charge and a women is traditionally expected to be more submissive and follow his lead. Reversing these roles can be very liberating and extremely pleasurable for both parties. I myself find it very sexy when a women has the courage and confidence to take the lead.

Ok so where do I begin?

Talk. Ask you boyfriend or husband to be completely open with you and ask him what he likes and doesn't like and what he would like you to do to him. Ask probing questions. And tell him if you are uncomfortable with anything. The nest time to do this is not during sex but at a time when the two of you are alone and open to communicate with each other. Its important to set the tone right so that your partner feels comfortable enough to disclose his deepest and darkest fantasies.

The fun part. Buy some leather outfits and heels or boots, I bet your partner will be more than willing to sponsor these items so go on a shopping spree together. Dress up and start slowly. Take things one step at a time and communicate frequently finding out what works and doesn't work, and what you both like and dont like. Remember its about exploring this thing together! It is important to let your partner know that you want to take it slowly and step by step.

I'm not at all inclined

So you have done the research and you just have absolutely no inclination to participate in this. There is nothing wrong with that position and your partner should respect your wishes. The problem of course is that your partner is going to feel as though his needs and wants are not being met by the relationship and may feel the need to address this by seeking a more willing partner.

One possible solution is to send your partner off to a professional dominatrix. This is a women who charges money for her services but does not have sex with her clients, instead she ties them up and spanksor whips them. There are actually some wives who are happy to let their husbands seeek out the services of a professional dominatrix to satisfy the husband's special needs which the wife is unwilling to do.

On the other hand, if you simply cannot come to sort of arrangement that is mutually beneficial it may be time to end the relationship and move on. This is not an easy thing, especially when there's marriage and children involved. The best thing to do is to have open and honest communication with your partner to see what the best solution is.
