Greetings and salutations artistic creatures of deviantART, welcome to ScummyVladDrac this is the visual playground of Australian photographer, writer and culinary madman Shane Fenton.
I have been a member of the deviantART community for over a decade, I started taking photos in my mid-teens, following in the footsteps of my family whom are also creative artists, I believe knowledge and industry experience go hand in hand, I am a trained, qualified and published commercial photographer, modelling/talent scout, stylist (food, product, clothing) modelling trainer, trade chef and writer. I am the owner of SHEESH Models International, ELYZABETH COUTURE Fashion Label and the editor-in-chief of KULTUS Fashion Magazine... Yes, occasionally I also get a chance to sleep!
I have been absent from deviantART for sometime, why you ask, it was time to get out in the real world, leave my comfort zone, establish my artistic brands, educate and evolve myself into a professional artist so I may continue to do what I love. So why have i returned? ...because deviantART will always be my artistic home, I wouldn't be half the artist I am today if it wasn't for this community, I have seen many changes over the years in this community and in myself but one thing has always remained true, deviantART is such a beautiful place to share creative passion, meet amazing people and continue to learn and admire from incredible talent around the world, I might have been gone for a little longer than I planned but I am back, I have a fire in my belly again and it's so good to be home!
ScummyVladDrac has seen more than a few artistic changes over the past 10 years, originally to highlight my written work made up of poetry, prose and song lyrics I shared my twisted thoughts and melancholy observations. I then begun adding photographic images to expand my creative needs, fast forward a few years I then created DulcetEpicure (my culinary photography/food styling profile) and SoundStageReview (my international music photojournalism profile) (which you can visit by clicking the links below.
On this page you are going to find photography from a variety of different styles though mostly relating to fashion, modelling food and product photography as this is the area in which I work. I hope you enjoy your visit here and feel free to click that WATCH button and visit my other photography social media locations.
