Thanks for your interest in my photography and specifically the project “In search of sex(uality)”.
With the development of smartphones also came dating apps like Grindr, Hornet, Recon or Scruff, making it very easy to find and connect to other gay guys. More and more young gay guys are making use of these apps to connect with each other. This has a big influence on the sexual development and identity of young men.
The project : In search of sex(uality)
For this project I want to photograph guys who use online apps for dating. Underneath you can see a moodboard to give you short impression.If you have any great ideas within this subject, let me know and maybe we can combine them in a shoot. Where you want to be photographed and how you are photographed is up to you.
Where will we make photos?
The locations for this project are unlimited. We can work outside or on any location you would like, I try to avoid the classic studio environments but they too, are an option. I prefer to come to your place so you are in a place where you already feel comfortable, but you are also free to come to my home. My studio is very mobile, wherever we meet, I can set it up.
If you would like to join this project, but you prefer to stay anonymous, just let me know. There are several ways to make awesome photos without people knowing it was you. Check the moodboard below for some of those ideas.
How to join
Joining is very simple, all you have to do is contact me via grindr, instagram, email or whatsapp. If I have time I will grab my camera and lights, and meet up with you as soon as possible. You will need to sign a permission for photography when we start the shoot, don’t forget to read it! This permission is needed for me to use the photos for my project.
After the shoot, I will make a selection of the photos and I will edit them. You will receive some of the edited photos via a link so you can use them online (more information about this can be found in de FAQ).
Can everybody join?
The age limit to join this project will be set to approximately 25 years. The minimum age is 16 years. This blog is the starting point of this project. Like every project I do, they are under continuous development and influences of my creativity, the end result of this project will be amazing.
