He has been photographing with an extraordinary range of professional Dommes and sub enthusiasts ever since.

FETISH CON 2004
Heat, Humidity, and Hurricanes -- what most people think of when they think of Florida these days. Nonetheless, the promoters of FetishCon 2004 choose the much warmer climate this year instead of their usual New England location. Approximately 500 models, photographers, vendors, and other "industry" people as well as a solid handful of fans turned out for this event held at the airport Doubletree hotel in Tampa, Florida.
The numbers probably would have been significantly higher if Florida had not just had a series of hurricanes, and since the airlines offered a refund or credit to most people with flights booked to the area, many people cancelled their trips out of fear of being caught in a hurricane.
Nonetheless, the entire event still produced a noteworthy party. Of particular quality was the small but genuinely wide variety convention floor and marketplace. Like the Las Vegas BONDCON, there was without a doubt an abundance of booths pertaining to bondage film and photography, both from the modeling side as well as from the production side. If the kinds of booths had stopped there it would still have been a great place for industry and fans alike. However in a superior layout, the kinds of booths included professional piercings, numerous high quality S&M toys of all kinds, all colors of rope available for purchase, spectacular jewelry, corsets, costuming, shoes, erotic glass sculptures, and even the occasional demonstration. Truly a wide variety of booths to suit almost any Perv's tastes. Various "Guest Of Honor" bondage super-models greeted fans and photographers alike at the entrance to the main convention floor, and the perpetually buoyant and exuberant Stacey Burke herself was in fact instrumental in the convention production. Other GOH included Eve Ellis, Emily Marylin, Darla Crane, and Julie Simone, and a variety of others.
Models both famous and novice alike, as well as photographers both known and new all mixed as business cards were traded and fan photos were signed.
With the exception of some of the parties at night, cameras were allowed everywhere.
Of said parties, the highlight was Friday night at Tampa's club UNDERGROUND, with the evening hosted by the infamous FETISH FACTORY of Ft.
Lauderdale and their club ALTER EGO. Truly one of the finest Fetish Clubs in America, Fetish Factory brought their genuinely unique, European flavor (which is why we here at IQ love them so much) to Tampa in a production full of Shows, Plenty of S&M Play Areas, and best of all the paramount Strict Fetish Dress Code.
DJ's spun mostly Goth-Industrial on the main dance floor, with an 80's mix in the front bar (where the sound was unfortunately very distorted) and an Industrial-Rave mix in the back bar / play area. A series of performances on the main stage dotted the night with vignettes by Emily Marylin, Rubberella, Julie Simone and others. It was obvious that many of the well-attended crowd were not from the FetishCon itself, but rather were there because of the reputation of Fetish Factory itself. Tampa is also fortunate in that all clubs close there at 3pm, as opposed to the prehistoric laws requiring West Coast clubs to close at 2am (but dammit, 3am is still too early -- *grin*).
Perhaps the oddest or most counter-productive choice the promoters of FetishCon made was the double-booking of parties on Fri and Sat night.
Opposite ALTER EGO was a a whole other party hosted by a well known promoter out of Atlanta. Sadly their event saw a very poor turnout due to everyone being at the Fetish Factory / Alter Ego party. Saturday night this happened again as two promoters hosted competing events a mere block away from each other, and again one party was well attended and the other lost out.
Saturday night's events used both the CZAR and the MASQUERADE nightclub venues in downtown Tampa's IBAR Village. The party at CZAR was the best attended and was hosted by a dual-coast effort with Darla Crane's name as the draw. CZAR is a small, tasteful two room set up with the main stage and dance floor where a wide mix was played, and a separate bar area that was turned into a VIP area (and where in my opinion the better DJ was wasted on a crowd of people who just sat around -- everyone dancing was on the main dance floor). However the true loss of the evening in this writer's opinion was MASQUERADE, a beautiful venue with a large stage, a completely separate (albeit WAY too little S&M furniture) Play Area, a sizable dance floor and just a very cool stadium-like layout in the main room. Unfortunately for the promoters at Masquerade, Darla's Fetish Lounge won out and most people never made it to see this unique and creative venue. Bottom line was that the FetishCon promoters really should have had ONE (authorized) party per night to keep the whole crowd together and socializing as a whole. Multiple parties only served to divide the crowd.
Back at the convention, each day saw several workshops which were free for attendees. Mostly on the subject of bondage in a variety of forms, with teachers such as Leu Reubens and Dominic Wolfe, the workshops also included the occasional odd Fetish subject such as Corsets Through The Ages. Quite a few of the workshops were filled to capacity.
Nonetheless, the most memorable element of FetishCon 2004 is probably not going to be the workshops or the parties or the floor itself, but rather Hurricane Jeannie which was gracious enough to largely -- but not entirely -- bypass Tampa for the weekend. Unfortunately when it struck it struck hard enough to cause the dilapidated Doubletree to loose most electricity and all running water for the last 24-36 hours of the convention. Now mind you that I say "the Doubletree" and NOT the neighborhood. In fact, the Dubious Doubletree was the ONLY hotel -- or even building apparently -- in the area that suffered as such. The Sheraton right next door where many convention guests stayed was absolutely FINE, with all services running smoothly, not to mention superior rooms and restaurants as compared to the Doubletree (INIQUITY ALERT: if they do this in Tampa again next year at the same location, ABSOLUTELY BOOK YOUR ROOM IN THE SHERATON!!!).
Ironically enough, the loss of power did not stop the party in the slightest and in fact added an odd Halloween-esque quality to the whole hotel full of candles and flashlights. Green glow sticks were handed out at the front desk, and although the Sunday night club was cancelled, the promoters did a rockin' job of turning one of the convention rooms into a make-shift nightclub using an available generator. This turned out to be one of the best parties in terms of vibe due to the rawness, silliness, and last-night-Blowout energy that abounded. After a little coaching from audience members the DJ finally figured out what the audience wanted to dance to and the air-conditionless room rapidly turned into a sauna as people sweated, gyrated, and yes even did actual backflips, on the dance floor. Spontaneous S&M play occurred here and there, a bar was brought in, and the vibe was just plain fun. A second room was also opened up as a more social chill area. Of course the factor of the Tampa airport being CLOSED that Sunday which FORCED people to stay and play and have one more night of fun also helped to fuel a goofy sort of "what have we got to loose?" busting out celebration.
Sweaty and showerless (at least for those at the Doubletree) Monday morning brought the real close to the event as the airports opened up again and people said their farewells at the front desk. With the hurricane past and the skies once again clear blue to greet the departing attendees, suitcases full of latex and leather, new toys and miles of rope were all hauled into an endless stream of taxis as the attendees of FetishCon 2004 said farewell to the innocent looking Doubletree where new memories were made and new friendships were formed. In the meantime, the staff at the Doubletree was frantically looking for other accommodations for the few sad people who had also booked a Monday night stay as well, since the power and plumbing still weren't on in this lone edifice.
SHERATON....c'mon, say it with me...SHER-A-TON. Yep, that's it. ;-)
