This is an artistic, expressive gothic photography book. It doesn’t focus on the fashion entirely, nor does it use an elaborate outfit- but the scene, pose and mood were the important part.
I wanted to do a vampire-themed photoshoot because I love the cool, sexy, powerful aura of these blood-drinking creatures (and I happen to have a strong blood fetish.) I wanted them to feel elegant, sexy, powerful, with a touch of animal-like lust….like a very sophisticated monster- That is often how I feel in life.
I commissioned a friend, a designer on Etsy also based in Seattle, to take these shots. It was my first time doing retouching and I had to learn a lot of new skills, which I very much enjoyed, as frustrating as it sometimes got.
The full photobook is available on my website- there are 20 images and each one is close to my heart. I hope it will become close to anothers’ as well. If you like it, please support my work (I am also a musician and have much more material slated for this year.) by joining the fanclub- $50 a year gets you free digital downloads of all my work! You will have my love and gratitude~
