Toxic Goddess Models and Photographer in Hong Kong Group Exhibition

June 26th, 2010 | By Dirk Hooper

HONG KONG, CHINA, June 22, 2010 – Award-winning fantasy photographer Dirk Hooper will have ten photos on display June 27th

during the “Accumulate” international art exhibition in Hong Kong, China.  Hooper’s work will join dozens of other international artists at the grand opening of “That Gallery”.  The organizers of the art show describe “Accumulate” as an opportunity to bring together artists from around the word and to exhibit the combined imagination of these artists by showcasing multiple works in a confined space.

Hooper is excited to have work in Hong Kong.  “I’ve wanted to get a foothold in Asia for a while now and it’s hard to beat an exhibition in Hong Kong.  My dream is to get a show in Tokyo, but I’m thrilled with this first step,” Hooper said.  Known primarily for fetish photography, “Accumulate” presents a softer side of Hooper’s work.  “This is not an erotic art show, so I focused more on fantasy and glamour style portraits.  The style is the same, but this work is not as provocative as most of my shows lately,” Hooper explained.

Danger Darling and Scott Van Eck both do work as makeup artists in the ten photos Hooper has in the “Accumulate” exhibition.  The models represented in Hooper’s photos are:

  • Toxic Goddess Aello
  • Toxic Goddess Dame Lebeau
  • Toxic Goddess Eclipse
  • Toxic Goddess Loki
  • Toxic Goddess Oshun
  • Toxic Goddess Rockelle
  • Toxic Goddess Selkie
  • Jade
  • Mistress Kitty
  • Princess Zoe

“Accumulate” will open on Sunday, June 27th at 3:00 p. m. in Hong Kong, China.  “That Gallery” is located at Unit F Superluck Inds Centre, 45-53 Sha Tsui Rd.  Refreshments will be provided.

This is the third bonus fetish set with Toxic Goddess Selkie.

I hope you’ve enjoyed these short fetish and bondage sets with Toxic Goddess Selkie and Toxic Goddess Dame Lebeau as much I enjoyed taking them.  This set was just worked this week and I’m very pleased with the results.  I can tell you that there’s at least three of these shots that I will be sending to art shows very soon.  It’s always a nice dilemma, when you can’t decide which one is your favorite!  Maybe you guys can help me decide…

This is the second bonus fetish set with Toxic Goddess Selkie.

It’s short because I was looking for something specific when I took the photos and I directed Selkie to move within a specific range.  She still managed to get a lot of variations (even more than I present here) in a very confined space though.  Another testament to how good she is!

By the way, that ball gag was incredibly irritating to Selkie, so this is the first and last ball gag shoot with her.

In this case, success comes in small packages.  The second photo in this set was in my solo show in Utrecht the Netherlands in 2009, plus the Tribal Fire solo show in Oklahoma City and more recently in the Fetish Valentine 2 group show in Allentown, Pennsylvania.

This is the first part of three small fetish updates from me featuring Toxic Goddess Selkie.  I do a lot of short sets where I have a concept that I’m trying to capture to use in an art show.  This set was a simple bondage set with Shibari Master David M.

Selkie is fantastic as a bondage model because she brings such enthusiasm and flexibility to a set.  Even tied up she manages more creative poses than most models!

This set produced a piece that became one of my halftone canvas prints and travelled to the Dirty Show in Detroit Michigan.  It may also end up at an upcoming show in Allentown Pennsylvania.

Toxic Goddess Well Represented at “Biting the Apple”

March 25th, 2010 | By Dirk Hooper

This year, the IAO’s Biting the Apple Erotic Art Show will feature the models and photographers of Toxic Goddess in high fashion.  Toxic Goddess photographers Robert Henry and Dirk Hooper will both have pieces in the show and the Toxic Goddesses who will be on the wall (if not in the gallery itself) are Toxic Goddess Eclipse, Toxic Goddess Oshun, Toxic Goddess Dame Lebeau (in two pieces), Toxic Goddess Cravyn, Toxic Goddess Selkie and Toxic Goddess Loki!  Toxic Goddess makeup artist Danger Darling and Toxic Goddess airbrush artist Scott Van Eck has work in the show as well.

Information on the show is below.  Come out and hang with Toxic Goddess!

IAO’s 19th Annual Biting the Apple Erotic Art Show

Individual Artists of Oklahoma will present their 19th annual erotic art show and fetish ball entitled “Cirque Fantastique” on Friday, March 26, and Saturday, March 27, from 7pm to midnight, at IAO Gallery, 706 W. Sheridan in the Film Exchange District of Oklahoma City.

Over the course of the two nights, this year’s Biting the Apple, “Cirque Fantastique,” will quite literally be a circus of fantasies that aims to explore how our fantasies are reflected in popular culture through movies, literature, and even modern myth. By providing an approachable and safe atmosphere, IAO hopes guests will come together in celebration of our fantasies to gain insights into eroticism through a wide array of individual artwork.

Friday, March 26 is the event’s Opening Party. Oklahoma artists will exhibit their erotic art in a combined invited artist and juried art show. The evening will also include erotic poetry readings, a fashion show, film and video screenings and performance art; as well as juror’s and people’s choice awards given for art submissions and IAO’s first ever YouTube video competition.

Saturday, March 27 will be a celebration like no other with the event’s popular Fetish Ball. Attendees are invited to dress as personal taste, fashion, and personal fantasy dictate. Look for artist-made costumes and décor to fit the “Cirque Fantastique” theme.

Join our circus of fantasies with street performers, an erotic dance-off and live peep shows. Both nights will include a cash bar and complimentary food donated by a few of Oklahoma City’s most excellent restaurants.

Tickets are $15 for each night or $25 for both nights.

Toxic Goddess Selkie in “Domestic Goddess” by photographer Dirk Hooper

I’ve run several sets that were shot close to this kitchen already. Selkie and I knew that we wanted to do a shoot with this oven as soon as we saw it, but we wanted it to be done right. When I found out that the old oven was on its last legs we set up this shoot immediately. I mean, come on… look at that thing! It’s like finding the Ark of the Covenant!

In high-end photography there is a person called the Art Director, who works on all the costumes and set design and makeup to create a cohesive look. In this set Selkie was the Art Director. It was her kitchen, with all the extra special touches, she picked out the dress and the apron, plus did her own hair and makeup. The pearls were a nice touch too.

I chose a lighting set-up that would allow me to get an antique look and pumped some yellow light into the ceiling to age the set. The final touch was to desaturate the photos so they looked 60 years old. I think the final look of these photos are a suitable homage to the era that oven was created.

You’ll have to excuse my occassional shots of the stove and the kitchen. Those photos are for Selkie and me. If you like still life shots, then they’re for you too!

Once again, Selkie shows that she’s adept at telling a story through her expressions. I’ll also add that she really made tea and chocolate chip cookies while we shot this set… AND they were both excellent.

Art Director, model and chef… not bad for one evening!

Selkie got a hold of a house right before the owners moved in and I really liked this large living room and those great drapes. Any time I can shoot in a large space I just think it takes things to another level and the drapes were very dramatic.

We have a couple of Toxic Goddesses who enjoy bondage for their own reasons, and Selkie is always up for a bondage shoot (I think she likes bondage because she enjoys playing the escape artist). I did a simple rig on her and lit the set with one stark spotlight.

This set reminds me a lot of the shoot we did on the first night we shot together several years ago… except she’s a better model and I’m better at both bondage and photography now. Selkie absolutely kills with those looks on her face.

A photo from this set was in the Netherlands show “Siberia” and recently in my solo exhibition at “Tribal Fire”.

What you don’t see here is Selkie doing her escape act. She was pretty impressive getting out of this bondage. I learned a lot by watching her get out… it won’t be as easy next time!

This was a shoot that was basically set-up to get one photo for an art show, and we continued to shoot so that we’d have more to offer the fans here on Toxic Goddess.

I had this idea to create a human table some time ago and, as usual, the logistics of making this shoot happen kept me from actually doing it for a long time. It’s not easy to get this many Goddesses in one place! The “Dominatrix” and the individuals who created the table, changed many times before we made this happen.

Special thanks go to Eclipse and Selkie, not only for enduring what was a physically uncomfortable position, but doing so and actually performing in a somewhat glamour-free shoot (after all Dame Lebeau is the one who gets to shine here). They put up with a lot of discomfort for this shoot, so when you talk to them tell them how cool they are!

Dame Lebeau had this awesome military hat and a fantastic wig that we used to transform her into the uber-domme for this shoot. She also played the regal dominatrix exceptionally well. Her contribution helped me pull off this idea even better than I envisioned.

Thanks also to Robert for helping me set up the table and lighting. This was a team effort all around.

You wouldn’t believe how spectacular that flower looked after sitting in our studio window for several months!

The concept of this shoot was very simple, but it probably wouldn’t have happened without all the other shoots that Selkie and I have done before. See, for some reason, when I do a shoot with Selkie I have her in elf ears, or funky lighting, or bondage… mostly because she looks great in elf ear… AND she indulges my crazy ideas almost like no one else.

I felt like it was way past time that I just showed you how pretty she really is, with no psychedelic lights, no ropes and… no elf ears.

If you have any doubt whether Selkie could be in Playboy (or if I could do one of their shoots) then this set should erase the question.

Selkie had this great new location for us and I was working on some images to send to my fetish show in the Netherlands, so I was mostly concentrating on bondage and kink. This room was fantastic but didn’t really fit in with the fetish stuff.

Rob was working close by and brought some props and Selkie glommed on to a pile of white feather boas. Between those boas and that crazy pink lighting, and Selkie’s typical demeanor during a shoot, we got the set you see here.

As it turns out, as much as I like the fetish stuff we shot that night, this set is so unusual that it really stands out to me. I’m glad to get this chance to share it with you.
