Photography Spotlight : CandyLust
A visual euphoria ( and I’m sure once you guys see a few photographs you’ll agree) was the first thing that came to mind when I came across CandyLust’s (Candace) portfolio on Model Mayhem(of which you guys can view here). Wanting (needing) to see more I headed over to the CandyLust website and visually I felt like a kid in a candy( no pun intended) store! It was at that point I knew that I really wanted to do a spotlight on CandyLust’s work here on the site/blog as I’m sure all of you will enjoy it as much as I have!
CandyLust specializes in Gothic, Fashion, Beauty, Fetish and Band( Combichrist,The Birthday Massacre, VNV Nation, and The Genitorturers to anme a few) Photography with more of the main focus on the Gothic/Industrial and Fetish side of photography ( so you can see why CandyLust’s spotlight fits in quite well here). CandyLust was created by Photographer/Artist/ Alternative Model Candace ( who was spotlight as one of the Alternative Beauties Of The Day awhile back and you can check that out here) who got into photography when she was in college. Being a film major at first she enjoyed making short films but really enjoyed cinematography aspect of it. In that summer she took a photo class spending her entire time in the dark room. It was then that she absolutely fell in love with photography. Candice obtained a BA in Photography from Brooklyn College and has a Masters degree in Digital Arts from Pratt Institute( of which I must say all that hard work that she has done to get to this point really does show in her work/portfolio).
Through out the course of our Email conversation Candace sent over an amazing collection of photographs from her portfolio which she thought all of you would enjoy (I know I did). :
Here’s another One with a fantastic tone and a wonderful back ground that just makes the photo stand out!( Side note for you long time readers you might remember the model in the photo above as Machine Sex who was one of the Alternative Beauties Of The Day if you wish you can see that post here)
Here is a couple that I personally enjoyed from The CandyLust website:
Another former Alternative Beauty Of The Day in this one( for you newer readers you can see the post here)
Here are a couple of Event Advertisements that were done up by CandyLust:
This is just a treat for your eyes folks. If you guys like what you saw here then head over to The CandyLust Website here where you see more of her ever expanding portfolio( side note : the website is really neat and has a great design to it)! Also you have to check out her Youtube channel here where there is two music videos posted along with two short films of which I HIGHLY recommend you guys watch them as they are amazing! Also for you that still use Myspace ( Like Me ) you can check out her Myspace page here and become a fan. All links will be posted to the side link section as well. Just so after this post goes towards the older post part of the site you guys will still have easy access to them.
So what’s next from CandyLust(Candace)? Well with several short projects coming up here and there one of the bigger ones she is doing is the shoot for the Vampire Freaks Calender ( due out next year). Which will feature Alternative Models from the NYC area so be sure to check that out as well!
I would like to send out a big TANK YOU to Candace for all of her time that she spent in responding to my Emails, getting really involved with her spotlight here and for the jaw dropping collection of pics that she sent over in her last Email! Again THANK YOU!!!
On a side note If your an Alternative Model, Band, even an actor or actress and would like to work with Candace you can contact her through her website, Model Mayhem page or Myspace!
