I’m overjoyed to say I’m back for my fourth visit to the great city of Louisville, Kentucky – and, like last year a big part of my vacation will be spent sharing my existing images and creating new ones.
I’m looking forward to so much – but here’s a few advanced highlights

In modern life, veiling has become very politicised at the same time as LGBTQ rights – recognising relationships and gay marriage has as emerged in a new liberalism. This short excerpt from my extended series of men under veils gives a glimpse into this extended visual essay into how veiling can be seen as metaphor for the modern queer condition. Part of Louisville Photo Biennial.
Veiled has previously been shown in my home city of Leeds during Pride 2014.
Last year I set out to shoot a few guys during my visit – in an amazing studio space I had loaned to me. By the end I shot over 20 – and from this created the 2015 ‘KY Guys’ calendar.
This year I’m back – looking to work with a broad variety of sexy guys to shoot; with little or no clothing on view (nudity is welcomed – but not required). Where possible I’d like to work in a place you choose – your home, a workplace, an outdoor space or somewhere else… but I can also probably suggest somewhere.
Get your kink on
One of the highlights of 2014 was meeting Todd and Kevin from The Barracks. So, when I knew I was coming back to the city I thought I’d get in touch.
And boy am I glad I did; they’ve agreed to host a fetish wear evening on Saturday 3rd October. I’ll not only be attending in gear but I’ll also have a camera to hand – for anyone who’d like an impromptu gear photo.
Anything you consider to be kinky or fetish will be welcomed – but we’d love to see Leather, Lycra, Neoprene, Uniforms and Sports kit. Guys out of gear are welcome too – but may be made to stand in the corner.
3rd October, 9pm – 4am;
The Barracks Louisville • 120 S Floyd St, Louisville (part of The Connection complex)
