I went out to the Olympic Sculpture park with Gehinnom a couple of weeks ago.
This is the first actual ‘Public Fetish’ shoot I have done in many years. My last full public fetish shoot was in the cemetery and we all know how well that one worked out. Since then I have shot one or two shots of fetishy things outdoors is about it.
I am throwing this out there to see if people would be interested in having me give a talk about shooting in public, shooting alternative images in public, what is allowed, what you need permission for, and what
I have been doing public fetish sorts of shoots for years in Seattle, Portland, Los Angeles, many other places. I have been interviewed by the Police, Security guards and more.
I have made the news a few times for some of my shot in public work.
way back in 1998 this was the first time I did a public fetish photo shoot. I do not remember how I met the model, but I picked her up on Bainbridge Island, and we rode the ferry back to Seattle. This is also where my term, “Terrorizing the Tourists” came from.
She went by a couple of names, Despair, and Omoikuru predominantly.
These were all shot on film with a little point and shoot camera. we all have to start somewhere…
I am an invited Artist and will be showing two images at the 2015 Seattle Erotic Art Festival this year. Both of these pieces have very interesting stories behind them.
Saturday the 25th at 1 pm I will be giving a guided art tour, the theme of which is “Making Art in Public”. I will talk about what went into making the two pieces I have on display. My personal experiences on what you can and cannot get away with in public. The ramifications of what can happen by taking your art public.
