I've been interviewed a few times about my horror photography and told the story about how in 5th grade I got a book on horror SFX and accidentally managed to take a "ghost" photo, and that those really set me on the road that led me to where I am today. I've recently been unpacking boxes .....
It's a truism that a photo of a naked woman posted to a website will get more attention than a photo of a non-naked woman, or of a something other than a woman entirely. While there's certainly a basis for this and many would just say "Duh!" it's simply not always true.
Case in point, ar .....
I get questions every so often about my image titles. For my photos of models (as opposed to most of my nature images, landscapes, etc) in the art & fetish genres (and sometimes horror, too) I often use song titles or bits of lyrics from songs. I also use pieces of poems, lines from plays, or .....
I was contacted today & notified that fairly well known model Amanda Logue, who did adult work under the name Sunny Dae, has been arrested in Georgia on charges of prostitution & murder, and is pending extradition to Florida.
For reasons unknown, Amanda took all her profiles down f .....
*EDIT: This has been edited at her request to her initials, her ex is apparently doing searches on her name looking for dirt. This's a very well known redheaded fetish model, not a Florida or Georgia gal. If you know her you can guess who I mean, if not & you w .....

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. Typically I will not permit them if I am paying or we're doing trade work. I will allow them on shoots where I am being paid, with a few restrictions.
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.
