Default Hi :) Possible Documentary Photoshoot.

Hi everyone, I am a published MA postgraduate artist and documentary photographer with also a first class honours degree in photography.

I am currently looking for subjects to make portraits for my new work as part of my final independent MA project.

I am based in Lancashire and wondered if it would be possible for any members to kindly let me take confidential and anonymous (if required) film and digital photographs of themselves, and their beautiful Dolls to document the lives they both lead, it would be an honour to do so.

It would only involve short visits of 30 minutes to an hour and could gain positive publicity for your self (if wanted) and these activities, which i feel is important in this area. As well as prints books and any reward from associated media generated through the project.

If interested please reply to this thread for the next steps,

many thanks

SS

All photos would of course be strictly anonymous with the upmost confidentiality.

First off, G-day.
Second... No sorry, I'm 7000 miles across the pond anyway.
Third, you may find nobody responding because we have been down this road many times before and it always ends up the same.
They start with seemingly good intentions and maybe that is true, but the final edit is inevitably stained with a misguided or derogatory title, cuts and splices narrated tongue in cheek, then in description, lumped in with the freaks and deviots tittles.
This is contra to what this forum here is about and counter productive to this becoming a lifestyle acceptable to the community at large.
There is nothing strange and mysterious about it, many guys like pretty ladies and have tasteful and often sexy pictures around their homes.
So what we have here logically, is just a tangible 3d image, for all intents and purposes.
Most people get attached emotionally to inanimate objects, cars, collectables, furniture art etc, nothing strange there.
How do you think these toy ladies become so beautiful?
Artists, sculpting masterpieces of inspired life, not to mention people who would otherwise be unable to attain a life partner at all, let alone one of such beauty.
Many of us are happily married, have families, wives can often benefit in many unexpected ways, and what better way to keep fidelity.
But no; It's always "Wierd lifestyles, kinky sex, devious intent, the mentally dubious, dirty old men or pathetic losers".
In my years here and other forums, I haven't seen any evidence of those descriptions, no doubt they are somewhere out there for sure, but not here.

Pete.

Hi Ark Angel,

Good to hear from you, i hope you are fine .

I can understand why you would feel this way.

I for one totally agree with you and all you say and I am actually fighting your corner with the work I would like to do.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with what is happening here you have hit the nail on the head for all intents and purposes, with everything you say.

I would like to portray your way of life as a safe and positive role model for the future and question why people think there is anything wrong in it, the answer to this, I think, will have its roots in a hyper individualistically selfish society which gets worse by the day, conforming to misguided stereotypes that only serve to grow that society based on greed, manipulation and power.

You will find the wrong is actually within the people who stigmatize others and the way ideas have been allowed to grow in their uneducated minds, keeping their closed minds happy with shoveling shit and feeling superior doing so.

People find ways to try and make themselves feel superior to the next person whether it is colour, race, size, looks, preferences or the other. I intend to show this and promote your life preferences as a beacon of light for future generations to aspire to.

Nothing ever really changes without someone being brave enough to stand up and want to make changes themselves, fighting for what they believe is right.


best regards SS.

G-day again, yeah, I'm good ta, hope you are same.
I appreciate your notion of a clarifying story to the masses and would wish it be so.
I am actually trying to help make sure you understand what it is to be in our shoes as far as "media" is concerned, so you don't end up unwittingly banging your head against a brick wall.

All you have said, has been said before, and in the past we many of us have endeavoured to assist these apparent story writers with facts and wisdom that only we can truly gain by being who we are for long enough to know, "who we are", collectively and individually.

Nothing you have said or offered is any different to what all before you have submitted as moral or practical reasoning and purpose for this kind of potentially devastating free hand with such sensitive information of a world that is so delicately resting on society's fence, that a mere breeze in a bad direction could see it plummet in the eyes of the public, then be wide open to that much speculation and conjecture, popular opinion could press laws to be made that are even more indiscriminate and ridiculously open to interpretation than they already are.

The first step is feeling these facts in your heart, translation to a non doll person is really a fools errand, unless you have a vested interest and are a true to yourself doll owner (which one can only achieve over some time), then it cannot possibly have any hope of conveying the correct reality, even if you were a true doll person and managed to survive your story's essence through the gauntlet of editors, publishers and sensors, the chances of the truth being heard are very very slim indeed.

So, here you have a small window into some of what is pictured to many of us, when we hear that another writer (journo etc.), wants to "portray the real side of the story".

Don't get me wrong, some have been genuine as you no doubt are, and parts of some stories were quite well done, but if it goes bad for whatever reason, the worst case scenario for you is a far cry from ours.

If you buy a doll, which means spending quite a lot of money, can love it or learn to in say 3 to 6 months (whatever) and have feelings enough to want to keep it or at least try a different doll and are successful at some point and level to some stage with some kind of doll and like to share your journey with others who are like minded and similarly living, then perhaps you too wouldn't want anything or anyone asking about or potentially disturbing your precious situation.
But perhaps you would also with vim and vitality want the world to understand as you do, the many fantastic, unique and complex aspects that are now pleasantly obvious to you, but are so vastly inconceivable to ones who have never experienced it first hand, that to merely try, only brings disappointment, tears and widens the rift, then driving the desire to stop trying to make people understand, finally realising what often they themselves do not, that they don't really want to understand.

Pete.

Default Hi There.

Well as Ark said, it's because of negative stereotyping that most of us don't want to "come out" in public. I'm the owner of two lovely teddy babes; plush soft dolls, fully life sized with wire skeletons. It's for companionship and somebody warm and soft to cuddle at night plus having a female around the house who doesn't go all aggressive-feminist when I treat her like a lady with romance and respect.
I've lived with My Lady Kat for six years now and have a very great affection for her - we got "married" in 2014 and she has done so much for me; not only for soothing my loneliness but also having someone to look after and take care of - and yes, love!

I have at times assisted "journalists" who swore they'd treat the subject with respect but all of whom had an agenda to "expose" the "morally unhealthy!"
I have had all the negative comments; I'm mad, bad, sad and a loser as well as kinky and probably dangerous. Just look at the current society we live in where men are subject to suspicion and witch hunts and the press is only interested in hypocritical sensation.

So I tend only to expose my interest to those I trust and those folk are both fascinated and supportive. Honestly - it isn't about kinky sex, it's a lifestyle and companionship thing. My ladies live openly about the house as any human woman would do. I treat them as such; to me they are real people, not things or sex objects; they have their characters, likes and dislikes and I spend time with them and money on them; I can't imagine being without them.

I would only contribute on a totally anonymous basis, with no identification whatsoever and I'd have to know a good deal more about who and what the angle is and who would be reading this. I do have essays on living with a doll and maybe photographs -( of the dolls only) but I'm very wary because of past experiences.

As Ark says though, the only way to really understand is to get a doll yourself. you would find it totally different to what you might imagine.
