Well folks, it's been a hectic few months around here. With the new website design and the increased updates, I've been working like mad to produce more good content. Fortunately, I love enjoy my work and love every minute of it.
I've been shooting a lot more models in the last few months than usual. It's kind of like fishing . . . when the fish are biting, you catch fish. When they're not, you cut bait. In my case, it's when the models are in town and available I shoot, and when their not, I'm on the computer doing photoshop and editing videos.
I appreciate the emails that you've been sending. It's helpful to know what my members like. I'm pleased that so many of you are fans of the Sybian videos and are requesting more. We have several new ones lined up for release soon.
I'll be in touch more often, so please don't hesitate to send me messages with your requests or questions.
Welcome to KenMarcus.com !
In 1996, at the insistence of several good friends, I decided to open KenMarcus.com.
At first I thought this would just be a place to show some of my work that hadn't been published before. I had no idea what the response would be, or that this many years later I would still be here doing this, and loving every minute of it as well.
My intent was to have a place where I could show my work and not have to answer to editors, art-directors, clients, designers, and all the other people that I have worked with throughout my career as a commercial and editorial photographer.
Throughout my life, I have maintained an interest in making erotic images. I was Penthouse Magazines first American photographer in 1971 and then brought my sense of erotica to Playboy where I photographed centerfolds for many years. I had a wonderful career as a glamour photographer, but always felt that there was something missing. My best and most erotic work was never published. I was too edgy for my conservative publishers.
The idea of 'self publishing' has always appealed to me, and the advent of the internet was an answer to my prayers.
Now, I could produce erotic work that, if I liked it, other people would be able to enjoy it as well. No more frustration that my favorite images were edited out by others, and not published.
I started my website with only a few dozen images, and added more each week. Now I have over 20,000 photos in the collection, and it's growing all the time.
This is my personal website where I share my erotic photography and videos with my audience from around the world. Each week I produce new work with some of the most beautiful models in the country. I specialize mostly in erotica, fetish and bondage themes, however that doesn't mean that I won't occasionally throw in a set of sexy glamour pictures of an amazing model or two. Since this is all my work, and it reflects my interests and taste, I shoot what I like and present the models that inspire me.
I'm not a big company with lots of employees, multitudes of producers and directors. I produce everything myself. My audience consists of many loyal fans that have been with me for years and are supportive of my work.
I emphasize beauty and quality, rather than quantity. My work is different than most websites you will visit.
I invite you to join my site and enjoy the difference.
