My Name is Mark Varley.
I take photographs of things,
I take photographs of people,
I take photographs of naked people,
sometimes I tie them up first.
Full-time professional photographer specialising in art nudes since 2004.
I specialise in art and figure nudes but also cover fetish (esp Bondage), erotica and occasionally adult.
Mostly I photograph paying clients and my personal projects are usually done with models on a TFp + Profit Share basis.
I also hire models usually for adult-level artistic shoots when I'm hired to do so.
My preferred genre and style is the artistic and figure nude, however I'm best known for my Rope Bondage work and it is also something I am good at and enjoy alot, it's a very different creative process. I also enjoy working in Erotica, especially at very explicit levels as I love the challenge of making something filthy into an artistic image, it is very challenging but I seem to have a talent for it. I also cover 'other fetishes' which expands to more than latex fashion, I include all fetishes and again I have enough experience with most fetishes to understand them and I enjoy the challenge of making artistic imagery from the various, sometimes not very visually appealing or interesting, fetishes that people enjoy.
I don't shoot weddings, I don't shoot glamour, I don't shoot portraiture (conventionally speaking), infact I am quite limiting in what I shoot because in over 10 years as a professional photographer I know what I'm best at and I stick to those, when someone works with a photographer they want a specialist, not someone who is 'OK' or willing to 'have a go'.
Although I don't shoot at levels below 'Nude', my preferred style of figure and artistic nudes is not very revealing, I do shoot to Adult levels but I'm not a pornographer, 'if it's not artistic it's not one of mine'.
If you are a new model or an experienced model who wants to move into the genres I specialise in then (Art Nudes, Figure Nudes, Art-Erotica, Rope Bondage) I may be willing to shoot some TFp plus Profit Share with you, so you get to use the photos in your portfolio and I'll try to make money with them, which I'll then share with you.
You can also hire me, I regularly shoot in the employ of both Models and the Public, although I retain copyright my client has full exclusive use. I'm also happy to cut deals shooting photos I can use as part-payment for photos a client needs.
Especially when it comes to Rope Bondage but also proven to include Artistic and Figure nudes, adding my work to your portfolio gets models more paying work.
I am now a photographer for 3-of-us.org, a website shooting met-art and playboy style nudes, if you are interested in testing for this give me a shout.
I don't use this website much so I don't host many photos here nor do I have much feedback here, there is more of me in the place of purple portfolios...
As well as being a full-time Photographer, I'm also a Part-Time Rope Bondage Rigger, I've been tying since I was 15 years old and professionally since 2005, so you are in very experienced and safe hands when I tie you.
If you are a model who is thinking about working in Bondage, but it all looks kinda scary, you can come to me for a TFp+ taster shoot and see if you like it and I'll also give you a load of information and advice unique to working in this genre. I strongly advise you to try it before you have the pressure of a paid job and also speak to someone with experience so you know what you are getting into, it is a much more vulnerable way to model and some people just don't like being in rope but may not know it until they try it.
I am also available to other photographers to rig rope bondage - BeautifulBondage.net/rigger
I have 19 years experience and cover a wide range of styles, specialising in on-location suspensions. Also being a photographer I completely understand the process and needs on a photoshoot and can help you create just what you are looking for, I look after the model, all you have to worry about is the taking of photos.
A whole lot.
I've been taking photos since 1991, Professionally shooting Nudes since 2004 and bondage since 2005.
I've published 13 books to-date (october 2014) and I'm usually working on another one.
