I founded this group at the beginning of 2016 to collect and promote the best of deviantArts fetish and alternative photography. Besides managing a place to share the art I wanted to give the members the opportunity to get to know the person behind the camera or the model in front of it as well.
So today we start off with our monthly showcase interview of group members with Marc from ‘guldorphotography’
:Hi Marc. First lets us know some basics about yourself. How old are you and where are you from?I’m from the Netherlands, and currently still living there. For my age, I like it way more to keep that a mystery even for good friends. Partly because no one grows up at the same rate and some of us never do.I read in your profile that you got an Art Degree. What did you study?I got a degree in fine art. I have studied Film, but I did a lot of extra stuff like stop-motion animation, visuals, photography and autonomous art.Let’s get into business. When did you start doing photography? And have you always done portraits?I slowly glided into it at the first year of the Art Academy and turned out to really love it and be good at it. I did a project with mirrors in the first year that was used to promote the academy for new students the upcoming year.Who was the first person you shot? Tell us a little something about that?I have never shot anybody, I don’t even have a gun... Is being a photographer your main job or do you have any other employment?Yes, I have been living solely from it about 3 years now. Mainly from real-estate and product Photography, with the occasionally art, fashion or portrait shoot.Now some more kinky questions. Why fetish photography? Would you consider yourself a fetishist as well?I use my deviant page now solely for fetish photography because most of my followers only care about it. I do other forms of photography before but it got way less views and responses so I stopped putting them here. But in general I do more latex fashion work then fashion with my free work. I do have a latex fetish but that’s not the reason for it, I love subculture as a whole and latex clothing has more diversity then say a Goth look for a photographer.You have a lot of photos with models wearing latex. Where do you get the clothes from? Any source for great latex fashion?When I started with latex, I emailed a only sexshop with a big latex section and bad photography and in the end got a deal to shoot there latex. I could pick the clothing and they would send it to me and I could keep it in return of photos. So I ended up with a big collection of latex and something new for shoots every time. But that’s something from the past. Now I mostly work with designers, I approach them to borrow something or the model does. And occasionally it’s the other way around.Which person / model you’d love to work with in future?There is a long list of famous fetish models that I would love to shoot with, I always love to work with for me new faces. So this list will be forever chancing. There is no one in particular really.What kind of equipment do you use?Camera and studio equipment You’ve already spent 8 years on deviantArt – that’s a long time – what do you say makes it different from all the other networks?It started with drawings and random things. And I have had periods of a year or 3 in total where I was not really active. It was the first one for me and at the start I loved it, now I have people following me here and I decided to put all my fetish work on here just because people who like that already follow me and deviant art seems to be very sex oriented today and latex works with that.Now is the time for self-promotion. Do you have any other social media profiles you’d like to share?
www.behance.net/GuldorPhotogra… (not super active with this one)
www.redbubble.com/people/guldo… (want to sell something before it start updating again, seems useless for now)
I have tried (many) others but they just didn’t work for me ...
That is the end of the first deviant showcase. Did you like it? Do you want to get to know more group members? What do you think about Marc’s statement that he is only posting his fetish photos? Are you interested in his fashion, too?
