Fetish Photography

Being single and finding myself again, I have a desire to get back into Fetish Photography. This time bringing all my recent knowledge and going crazy with it. Will probably revamp my site into something fetish like. Now I am just trying to go through old work and finding some of the fun sexy fetish images that I used to do. It's kind of exciting!

Game Over

Tribute to Silent Hill.
Location- CAFAC Boiler Room in South Minneapolis
Costume by Dayna Deau
Photography, Lighting and Set by Courtney Conk

When worlds collide.

Thursday the 28th had a rough beginning. Something that made me wonder why I collaborate with people.

After focusing my energy on this Silent Hill project, I know why. I traded my craft [photography] for They have an amazing space, are amazing people, and are offering all kinds of metallurgy classes now [see older posts]. One lucky shoot Roger showed me the boiler room, after I mentioned I was into creepy basement. They for sure have THE creepiest 1930s boiler room basement, plentiful with lead, coal, dust and possibly asbestos. But look at this set, is it worth it?

Dayna Deau worked on this costume for over a year as her homage to Silent Hill. I knew the first game, and worked off that dirty scary feeling it gave me. The textures and video loops in the game amazed me, and I wanted to recreate that. And I did!

So we toiled and troubled and made something amazing. I am giddy and exhausted, cuz I got so many. You can see the rest on my Facebook Page CC Photo Arts.

Much creepy love,

Penny Dreadful

Creative and creepy, similar minds can create something quite dreadful! I think I found another model I will love to work with in the future! It's amazing how bouncing ideas off someone can really get the creative juices flowing!

I don't think I will ever be able to move out of this place because the basement is just too awesome to shoot in!

Such is Life

Age brings such wisdom, as long as you do not spend too much time looking back. You have to take those life experiences and focus them on the future. Unfortunately what seems so easy to me, isn't so easy to everyone. I see so many people around me spending time focused in the past and dwelling.

I thank whatever goddess that watches me, and all the women in my life that helped me translate my life experiences into art. It has allowed me to speak through my eyes, to translate emotions into images. And I have so much more potential for deep therapeutic images, just do not have the time and money to create them. But I am trying my damnedest, one step at a time! I just hope I have enough time on this planet before I get assimilated back into dust.

You Kill Me

Got new paints, though I'm worried they might be too glossy. Lynnete was awesome to let me come over and use her for this gory concept.
