Bring out the gimp…

Category: Fashion,Photography

“The gimp’s sleeping.”

“Looks like you’re gonna have to wake him then…”


I can’t think of a better way to start the holiday season!  This gimp shoot was assembled for a promotional campaign for Cirque Noir.  Inspired by the very best of Montréal’s underground fetish parties, Cirque Noir is a 1920′s Berlin-themed event.


This epic party is being thrown at Mercury Lounge, 56, and The Collection in the Byward Market, Ottawa.  The locals out there realize the implications of this.  One buidling, three venues, four floors, all Cirque Noir.  It’s all going down on January 15th, 2010.


Our mischievious friends from will be providing bodypainting, and there will be a whole host of live performances, including some of the regions best DJ’s and the occasional dominatrix.  Beats will be supplied by Paulo Cardoso (Bomba, Onaversal), Jeff Lapratte, & Mercury Resident Lance Baptiste who is performing a special German Electro set.


It’s been a while since I’ve shot some really sinister shit with hard light.  The whole shoot went down on location at Mercury Lounge, and the models, Cindy and Patrick were energetic and so much fun to work with.  Big shout to Piotyr for playing the role of voice-activated light stand!  The official flyer and promo design is being done by Kid SL and Taktikal Design, so whatever he cranks out, it will impress.

You can find all the kinky info for the party on their facebook event listing.
