Drasko Bogdanovic speaks to the founder of the world’s first fetish-photographer network

02.06.2013

For many people, looking for a photographer to take nude or fetish photos of themselves is an intimidating process. Fetish photographers don't normally advertise in newspapers or Yellow Pages, and it can be awkward to get naked in front of your cousin and ask him to point and shoot.
 
Worry no more, because finding someone to take steamy photos of you has never been easier, thanks to Maximus. Created as a network that connects clients around the world with some of the best fetish photogs in the business, it’s a one-stop shop for all your homemade Sex Book needs.
 
Luke Lalor is a founder of the network, and I got to chat with him about the Berlin company and all the fetish fun.
 
"The idea for Maximus came to me under the shower one morning,” Lalor says. “It struck me how strange it was that such visually aware people, like fetish guys, have so few professional photos done. People didn't know who the fetish photographers were, and they didn't know where to find them.”
 
With so many gay social apps and websites like Recon, Scruff or Grindr, the ease of hooking up has never been greater. However, when it comes to expressing that kinky side, too many people still use cellphones in front of the mirror.
 
“Gay men, particularly, adopted dating sites and apps as a part of their day-to-day interactions . . .  it’s not necessarily about dating any more,” Luke says. “These apps are about more than our desire to get our rocks off, and I think how we present ourselves is really important.”

 
“Fetish is life. It’s up to everyone's own definition what fetish is and where their imagination is and where the photographer's imagination goes," Luke says. He speaks with passion about engaging people in the experience of a professional photo shoot.
 
As a photographer I understand how important it is to be clear about the process, pricing and what happens during the photo shoot. Luke adds, "It really puts the value in photography. It is a mystery to 99 percent of people. That's why one of the most important principles of Maximus is that the prices are declared right at the start." Luke speaks with the experience of someone who has worked as an agent for many years. "The relationship and the rapport that you build inside of the photo shoot is crucial in getting a good result. It is really important that photographers are allowed to create an authentic environment. It has to be a feeling of doing something really great. You feel fantastic after that."
