WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO PICK UP A CAMERA?
Just kind of happened. I grew up in a family where cameras were always around. I don't mean digital ones either. I am talking 35MM and medium format ones. SO I would have to say probably the last 35 years or so I have been with a camera in my life.
WHAT PARTICULAR CHALLENGES DO YOU FACE WITH EROTIC PHOTOGRAPHY AS OPPOSED TO OTHER GENRES?
The stereo type and stigma that today's society put on nudity. The erotic photography is meant to be exactly that...EROTIC. It's meant to stir the soul. We are by nature carnal creatures. Sorry but I don't care who you are. You can't avoid having carnal thoughts...it's impossible. So I really say, people need to get over themselves and embrace the nude form....IT'S HOW WE ARRIVED IN THIS WORLD!
DO YOU PREFER TO SHOOT WITH FILM OR DIGITAL?
Digital for publishing work and Film for my personal stuff.
HOW DID YOU BECOME INTERESTED IN FETISH/BDSM?
Would have to say at a very early age. Growing up in the 80's and seeing Helmut Newtons work. It kind of left an impression on me to this day. Yes I am a huge Helmut Newton Fan.
DO YOU ENJOY FETISHISM/BDSM PLAY IN YOUR PERSONAL LIFE, AND IF SO WHAT ARE YOU INTO?
Yes I do. Many things that I won't go into on here. That's for my private life.
DO YOU THINK PINUP AND FETISH ARE BECOMING PART OF THE MAINSTREAM CULTURE?
They have been for awhile now. I am glad to see it in mainstream. But like all things society is only going to accept it for a time. It's just how the ball bounces. But the longer it stays in the fore front. The better foot hold it will have.
ARE THERE ANY OTHER CREATIVE MEDIUMS YOU WORK IN?
Not really. Tried video editing once...wasn't my thing.
WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO YOU LIKE?
80's, Hair Metal, Nu Metal....but those are my favs...I really listen to everything. It just depends on my mood.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO FOR FUN?
Spending my free time with family and friends. With out them there wouldn't be any fun. I don't need anything but them to help me have fun and of course photography. If I am not having fun at that. Then why do it.
