Please check out all my prints! Usually what I sell here on DA are my nature shots & collaborative work with other DA artists. For my fine art prints (as noted on the images) I do limited editions so you'll need to contact me directly.
Support a starving artist!! :D

James Glendinning
Artist | Hobbyist | Photography
United States
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 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.

I use Digimarc to copyright-protect my images. Please respect my copyrights.
Note that NONE of the work I display here on DeviantArt **EXCEPT the work displayed in my "Stock" folder and SPECIFICALLY labeled as stock** may be used, copied, or distributed in any way or form without express written consent, nor is it in the public domain.

Current Residence: Arnold, Md

I finally broke down & got an Instagram, @slephotography, when I got my new phone the other day.  Figure I'll mostly use it for location scouting, my pets (or other cute animals), and some BTS shoots stuff.  NO FOOD! 

I will be tossing some of them up in my Scraps folder here, especially cool abandoned or decayed locations, with GPS coordinates in case anyone else wants to see them too.

Here's the first batch.

Have you ever done any work with Ashley Troub?
slephoto Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2014  Hobbyist Photographer
No I haven't.

Do you know where I could find some of her photo sets?

I really am not sure who you're talking about, sorry.

Stopped in for a quick visit, first in a long time. But noticed you hadn't posted much sine my last time here. Liked "Watching Idly" a lot, though. Lots of grace and poise, and excellent, restful composition.

Thanks!  I haven't been terribly active lately mainly due to time constraints & some computer issues but I'm hoping to be back in the swing soon.

That's good to hear. Hope your time constraints mean you're productive and making a good living!
