My work is erotic without being pornographic. Like many erotic photographers, I’m fascinated by the intersection of sex and power in relationships, and my photos reflect this: They investigate desire, control, sensuality and the feminine.
And as a photographer, I’m fascinated by all aspects of the feminine. Flesh, light, costume; make-up, props, scenarios – I use all of these to highlight the feminine spirit I see in my models.
Although I like to think of my photography as “Dark Art” – dark in visual impact, in tone, in subject matter – Lately, I’ve been stepping outside my comfort zone; experimenting with negative space, color photography, and with a much brighter tonal range.
