My name's James Glendinning. I'm primarily an artistic & fetish photographer based in Annapolis, Md. I'm readily available anywhere within a 2 hour radius, and longer distances when compensated. I frequently visit Orlando, Tampa, and Cocoa/Melbourne, Fl. I also travel elsewhere whenever I can.
I have been operating under the name "SilverLight Esoterica Photography" (SLE Photo or SLE Photography for short) since 1989. I have a web site that is being rebuilt: James Glendinning, SilverLight Esoterica Photography www.slephoto.com
. While I still work in film, as of early 2006 I made the shift to primarily digital work. Links to other sites showcasing my work can be found there.
My focus is on creating work designed to be showcased in large prints. I exhibit in galleries & shows around the southeast US. I do much of my work on a trade basis, offering a variety of looks and styles for the model's portfolio in exchange for images I can use in my shows.
Unless shoots are set for sites like Zivity where the model & I are both members, I do NOT shoot web content unless requested by a model to do so (I will trade content for models' sites for images I can use). While I shoot fetish, bondage, and erotic work I do not shoot ANY hardcore material, and no requests for such will be entertained.
I also offer some paying work for projects that have commercial intentions (such as the Zodiac At the Beach Calendar/poster series I have shot and am working to complete) or for some of my clients such as for ads for The Woodshed. I will contact models for such projects or place castings, no unsolicited requests for paid work will be answered.
I frequently collaborate with other photographers and digital artists. If another photographer is credited on one of my images,that photographer either assisted on the shoot or did the retouching or manipulations.
At this time I am seeking the following:
* African-American, Asian, and Hispanic models to increase diversity in my portfolio.
* Male models willing to act in dominant and submissive roles for fetish images, some with other males and some with females.
* Men and women interested in alternative spirituality for my Goddesses series and my Gods In Modern Times series.
* Men and women interested in alt. spirituality and fetish for my bondage Tarot project.
I usually work with a female assistant or MUA on any shoot unless I am working with a group of models. I do NOT shoot solo with models if possible. Having said that, I am not a fan of escorts, as I find they typically disrupt shoots. If you won't work without an escort we probably are not compatible to work together.
Due to the nature and content of some of my work, I will not shoot with or accept networking/friends requests from anyone under the age of 18.
