WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO PICK UP A CAMERA?
Hmmm… Good question. I don’t know, I have always loved to take pictures. I never was a People/Model photographer up until a couple years ago. I was always a Nature / Still Life person. I started playing with model photography about 2 years ago and it has taken over. There is something about taking a picture of someone and making them Beautiful, Sexy, Seductive, desirable. I don’t take portraits of people, my goal is not keeping it true to life. I see potential in a person and then I expand that with my camera and editing.
WHAT PARTICULAR CHALLENGES DO YOU FACE WITH EROTIC PHOTOGRAPHY AS OPPOSED TO OTHER GENRES?
I don’t see it as challenges opposed to other genres. I just think it is another form of art. I love making people beautiful, attractive, seductive. The only thing I would consider a challenge would be acceptance as artistic. There is a fine line between what is considered art and what is considered other. I think that that line is different for everyone and you will never have 100% acceptance in the erotic medium.
DO YOU PREFER TO SHOOT WITH FILM OR DIGITAL?
I am a digital photographer. I enjoy the editing process just as much if not more than the act of taking the picture. It is like art that I am creating and I can modify it to give a certain feel or draw your eye to only certain things in the image
HOW DID YOU BECOME INTERESTED IN FETISH/BDSM?
I would say the question isn’t how, but why. People do things until they get bored or lose interest so they look for something more, something that keeps them excited. Always looking for something that excites you that much more, or turns you on that much more.
DO YOU ENJOY FETISHISM/BDSM PLAY IN YOUR PERSONAL LIFE, AND IF SO WHAT ARE YOU INTO?
Yes, but I will leave that to the imagination. My girlfriend would probably prefer that.
DO YOU THINK PINUP AND FETISH ARE BECOMING PART OF THE MAINSTREAM CULTURE?
I do think that Pinup and Fetish are becoming more accepted and popular with the main stream culture. I think Pinup more so because it is viewed as less taboo than fetish, but both are more widely accepted in general. There will always be people that have moral issues with both and they have a right to their opinions and beliefs, but I think that the general population is definitely more accepting now than they have ever been
ARE THERE ANY OTHER CREATIVE MEDIUMS YOU WORK IN?
Just about anything artistic. I don’t make art to sell or display but I do enjoy Painting / Drawing / Sketching
WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO YOU LIKE?
Classic Rock / Hard Rock / Metal / Alternative
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO FOR FUN?
Anything and Everything. I will give just about anything a try. I love outdoors more than indoor activities… I am a country boy originally so I have always spent more time outside than inside.
