Paton Yates Photography

Manchester, United Kingdom

A Morepixx 2023 finalist, we like to focus primarily on sensual and intimate photography.

With a background in film and a deep interest in traditional fine art and creative fashion, we love opportunities to mix these very disparate worlds together with kink to create more emotionally driven images and perspectives. The influence of these worlds lends us to think out of the box, working out how we can create items such as unusual props to reinforce the story of an image and provide striking elements of focus within a portrait.

When it comes to our fetish photography, we like our portraits to be more personal, tailored to the individuals involved and showcasing the connection that is inherent when practicing fetish and kink. Furthermore, we like to bring this connection through to the viewer inviting them to become more than just a spectator if they desire, allowing them to feel how they would fit into the scenes and in turn, challenge the viewer to reflect on their own roles within this world.

This mix of influences and the desire for connection allows us to bring fetish more toward mainstream, edgy, fashion photography as an outlet helping to normalise kink a little more. We also like our work to be a bit more thought provoking to the viewer helping challenge their own views they may have around fetish and kink.
