Being able to create the things I wanted to see. I am beginning to realize I just might not stop picking up the camera. I've been interested in digital art and photo manipulation since the age of 12 so eventually I just wanted to use my own material vs stock photos.
What particular challenges do you face with erotic photography as opposed to other genres?
Now that I think about it, I wouldn't describe Dangerously Dolly as erotic. However, I do love erotic art and would love to explore that someday. If I could describe my work now, it would probably be more along the lines of alternative pin-up/conceptual.
Do you prefer to shoot with film or digital?
I wish I could experiment with film, but it's expensive! Eventually I'd love to take up on the challenge. However, for the kind of work I do, I prefer digital above anything else.
How did you become interested in fetish/BDSM?
Well, now that I think about it, when I modeled for a very short period of time 4-6 years ago, I looked at Betty Page a lot. Total babe! I bet a lot of people list her as an influence.
Do you enjoy fetishism/BDSM play in your personal life, and if so what are you into?
Hahaha! Not as much as I'd like! I love to be written/drawn on. I also like to be tickled. It's nothing sexual, it just relaxes me.
Do you think pinup and fetish are becoming part of the mainstream culture?
Definitely, a lot of performers like to borrow from the culture to incorporate in their own performances.
Are there any other creative mediums you work in?
I love working with hair! I sometimes do it for my own photo shoots. I remember a big-headed hairstylist practically told me I don't know how to do what he does. Lead by example: If you're anything like me, you would know you can do anything if you put your mind to it. Stay patient, be persistent, and fuck the rest! If you're curious, you can see some of the hair I've done on my model mayhem page. I also love make-up. Sometimes, I enjoy drawing... It just depends! I'm always wanting to try and learn new things. My boyfriend wants me to learn to tattoo. Ha! If I can learn that, forget about it. I can really do anything.
What kind of music do you like?
Oh, my taste in music makes no sense, I like many genres. Rock and roll at heart though!
What do you like to do for fun?
I like to spend time with the people closest to me. I love to travel. Looking to travel the world for photography's sake someday.
