Writeboy is Chicago based, and has been a member on SG since 2006. He became a staff photographer in 2010.

How did you first get involved with SuicideGirls?

I think I found out about SG through a friend. I can’t remember exactly. When I moved to Chicago a few years ago and didn’t know many people, I met some of my first local friends on here. SG Chicago had a pretty active group at the time.




What’s your background photography-wise?

SG was my motivation to get into photography. I’d posted some sketches in the SG Fan Art group and the positive reaction felt great. Then a woman I was seeing asked me to take some photos of her for fun and she liked them. So I kind of got addicted. I bought a Canon Rebel, joined Model Mayhem, and started shooting a lot. I volunteered to assist more experienced photographers and did some tutoring sessions. Some local Hopefuls and SGs offered to shoot with me and I’d go to SG Photographer Hopefuls for feedback on the sets. The great thing about photography to me is that it’s not rocket science. My work improved a lot because of some simple suggestions people offered along the way that made a big difference.

What was the first photo you had published?

I don’t know if I’ve had anything published in print yet, but my first homepage set for SG was Blue with Shyla Suicide.

How would you describe your style?

Hopefully it comes across as natural and spontaneous. That there’s a connection between model and viewer.




What gear do you use?

Canon 5D Mark 2 and 24-70mm 2.8 lens mostly. Lately I’ve been experimenting with 50mm and 85mm prime lenses to get sharper images. And an assistant with a reflector :)




How important is Photoshop in your final images?

It’s important. A couple months ago I finally woke up and realized I should be following Cherry’s tutorial in the SG Photographer Hopefuls group. It’s always a balance between helping the model look her best while showing her as she is in real life. 




What gives you ideas and inspires you to create such amazing sets?

Looking at other sets of course is big. It also comes from what grabs my attention in someone. Do they have amazing hair, striking eyes, unique tattoos? Are they quiet, wild, intense, playful? It can also come from an article of clothing or the setting itself.

What is your favorite image?

I like this one from Bounty’s Pray Hard set [see full NSFW image].

Tell us why it’s your fave and how you achieved it?

Bounty just has these amazing big eyes. Also I like that the lighting is soft and her pose is kind of innocent, but there’s something suggestive in her look and the “Hard” tattooed across her knuckles that’s hot in an indirect way.



Is there anybody or anything you would love to photograph that you haven’t? (And tell us why)

Tons! It would be cool to shoot with Mary because she’s the original SG to me. As far as newer models, hopeful Spliff_ kind of represents what SG is about for me in that she’s hot in a unique and kind of unconventional way and yet comes across as down to earth and approachable. That’s what I like about lots of the members/models here and what I think makes this site such a unique place.
