Have your fetish portrait taken by a professional…
Helena Eloise is one of the top photographers in the fetish world, having graduated from Salford University with a Visual Arts BA (Hons) and worked in the music industry for Manchester’s Airtight and Tangled clubs. Her images have been published in Mix Mag and The Big Issue.
Helena is also co-creator of Fetish Rocks, a combination of photography, music, latex fashion and live dance performance. Fetish Rocks ran its first event as part of Wigan’s NXNW week long arts festival, supported by The Arts Council and other local funding bodies. The exhibition was reviewed by The Guardian… and Skin Two.
Helena worked closely with latex clothing designer Joy Williams during the final year of her Cambridge University degree in 2010 and Fetish Rocks sponsored Joy’s final degree show, providing images of her latex couture clothing. Fetish Rocks and Joy’s designs featured a three page article in Skin Two LateXtra.
Helena Eloise’s exhibition in April 2011 titled ‘Urban & Erotic Explorations’ was reviewed by Alt Fashion Magazine – “intriguing, and eye catching images… a stunning example of some of the North’s most intriguing derelict locations. The beautiful deconstruction of these locations is depicted within the photos, in a manner that truly fits the fetish angle of the images.”
Helena’s portraiture has a very theatrical feel, adding many elements which tell a story and capture the personality or alter ego of the model on camera. Role play, costume, props or capturing a moment, combined with scene setting are ingredients of a Helena Eloise image. Her inspiration comes from Helmut Newton, Jan Saudek and Mario Testino.
Helena will set up a portrait studio for a limited time at the Skin Two Springtime Party on 13th April, so track her down if you’d like a really special image of yourself. You can contact Helena via her website.
