If you like my nature photos and have an interest in animal identification, science, zoology, etc - you can check out my profile on iNaturalist (and can help ID my photos ).
An InterviewHello all - you can find an interview I did for the Bondage-Dungeon group's Meet the Artist series here:
I'm considering doing some sort of an AMA here, if people are interested. And I get good questions.
Stealing Other People's WorkJust a reminder - I will immediately block anyone who posts other people's work in their gallery without permission. Besides the fact that it violates dA TOC, it's a shitty thing to do. Don't be an asshole.
Oh Hey, I Passed 2000 Deviations?I took a glance at my dA stats today, and realized I have over 2000 photos on here. Jeez. I guess I've been on here for quite some time, and it's added up over that span. I also haven't taken my old work down - while a lot of it is inferior in quality (one would hope I've shown some improvement, anyway), it's interesting for me to see that history evolve.
For what it's worth, I'm glad to be using dA to exhibit my work. Despite its ups and downs, I still feel dA can be a very useful place, especially for an amateur artist like myself. What I do is a hobby, but a hobby I really enjoy.
Thanks for everyone who watches me or otherwise appreciates my deviations. I know not everything here is for everyone, and certainly the quality is rather uneven, but it's me.
Not Dead Yet!I'm on a bit of pause right now as Ely and I are getting married very soon. That's taking up a significant chunk of my schedule right now, but I'll be back shooting a little later on.
Sandy was a bitch.Just catching up with everything now, as I finally have power and internet back after the storm. Unprecedented outages and damage across the state. We were pretty luck, escaping anything beyond losing power - some I know were not so lucky.
And yet, climate change continues to be willfully ignored by the major parties - so I expect the trend of increasingly violent storms in this area to continue.
Restrictive FashionI figured I'd try to start my first deviantART group, Restrictive-Fashion If you follow my work, I'm sure you've noticed that I often feature clothing that restrains the wearer in some way - particularly hobble skirts (thus my former username). I wanted to start a little community here to cover the topic - so if this is something you're interested in, I invite you to watch the group, or even contribute if you have relevant deviations.
A reminder about photo commentsVulgar/disrespectful comments towards the models will get you immediately blocked. Keep it to yourself.
Facebook PageAlong with the name change, there is the new FB page (since they don't let you rename pages):
Welcome to the Black Room - S+S becomes Black RoomIt's been long overdue - I'm finally changing the name under which my photography is published. The name going forward is Black Room Photo - the site is Black Room Photo. I won't be re-watermarking all the old images, and the old S+S name will still work, but this is it going forward.
Part of the reason I hadn't replaced the old name for so long (which was rather generic) is because I couldn't come up with something I liked enough (this is also why I don't have any tattoos ). I finally decided on Black Room, something that has meaning to me on several levels.
So, nothing is changed other than the name. Thank you everyone who has enjoyed my work, I hope you continue doing so.

Happy 15th Birthday!In April I wrote a post reflecting on my 15 years at DeviantArt, since the project began in April of 2000 and was launched to the public on August 7th. I went back and re-read what I wrote, and wow, speaking of audacious I'm pretty hardcore in this post. I write from my heart sometimes and then I hit post and that's that. So for our official 15th Birthday I wanted to re-share a link to that post:
And then today, I wrote this reflection for you as a toast & thanks for all the llamas:
Happy 15th Birthday DeviantArt! We are evolving, and soon we will be able to share exactly how you can be a part of our transformation, ensuring that the DeviantArt we all love grows stronger in supporting the visual & written arts for 15 more years to come! You will soon see us release many years of effort, repositioning DeviantArt from all we have learned over our 15 years of managing the worlds largest creator community.
Thank you for all of your support over the
