Commission Original Artwork by Dirk Hooper

Commission Original Artwork by Dirk Hooper

Have you ever wanted an original piece of artwork of you, a friend, or a loved one? This is your chance to get something that will absolutely be the most unique gift possible for someone special (or yourself).

I’ve been an artist since I was five years old, and a professional artist since the age of 14. But this is the first time I’ve offered commissioned artwork.

I’m offering commissioned pieces in several sizes, and increasing complexity. What you’ll get is a digital file that you can actually use to make your own prints, you can use for advertising, or anything else you want. That’s highly unusual, and a great deal to you, but something I’m offering at this time. However, I retain all rights to use and display the work as well.

Below is an example of the style that I will use for these pieces.

 

 

Size, Format, and Prices

Below are the formats that I’m am offering and the prices, at this time. Prices may (and will) go up at any time.

8″x 10″ – $100

This is a standard torso or portrait image of your subject. It is presented in color and high definition.

12″ x 15″ – $200

This is a full-body, or fantasy piece, in color and high definition.

16″ x 20″ – $400

This is a fantasy piece that will be increasingly complex and include two or more figures, and additional props, in color, and high definition.

 

Contact

You can contact me directly at dirk@dirkhooper.com to request a piece. I work on a first-come first-serve basis, so if you need the work for a birthday, or a holiday, then please contact me early. I require payment up front.

We will discuss your ideas and the possibilities. I will do my best to bring your vision to life.

 

Additional Information

If you would like a print of your work, I have a service that will make a beautiful art print that’s suitable for display. There are other formats available as well, including metal and canvas prints.

Expose’ Book Cover

Asked about why she chose to work with Dirk Hooper again Suzanne Steele said, “That’s an easy one…the fans like him and so do I. One described his voice being like melted butter. For me it’s all about the fans and if they’re happy so am I. He’s good at what he does. There’s also the issue of him being easy to work with.”

Dirk Hooper said, “It’s such an honor for me to have the opportunity to play in Suzanne’s world once again. Her characters are so interesting, her books are so much fun, and I think in Expose’ you can feel the power of the family she has created.”

Expose’ is the third book in the Born Bratva series. Suzanne Steele said, “Expose’ is Kodiak, Glazov’s adopted son’s story. I believe it’s important to tell each child’s story to set the stage for the Born Bratva Legacy to continue. “

Once production is complete the Expose’ audiobook will be available through Audible.com and Amazon.com. The Expose’ book by Suzanne Steele is available right now through Amazon.com.

Dominatrix and Slave Dungeon Photos by Photographer Dirk Hooper

Dominatrix and Slave Dungeon Photos by Photographer Dirk Hooper

This set titled “Danse” was taken in a public dungeon in Kansas City. In this set is professional dominatrix Princess Zoe and fetish model Miranda.

Shibari artist David Masters invited me to the MRP Gallery in Kansas City, to do a day-long series of shoots with four models, two rope bondage experts (David Masters and Manator) and me doing the photography.

What really separated out this shoot was the inclusion of the submissive model in this set named Miranda. She answered an ad where I asked for a model to meet me in Kansas City for a bondage shoot. And, as you can see, she was spectacular.

I’ve worked with Princess Zoe for over half a decade and she’s a great friend, so this set quickly became a slam dunk with her participation. Miranda was new to this genre and Princess Zoe did a wonderful job of making her feel comfortable and coaching her through the photos.

What was really magic was how well these two models worked together. There was a crowd of club members and Shibari artists on the set and everyone knew we were getting great shots.

The hardest part of working this set was deciding which photos to use. This is just one of those shoots that yields a lot of great content.

Photos from this set were featured in several articles, a poster and at my Candychrome solo-show that was at the same gallery where I shot the photos!

If you’d like to see more of Princess Zoe please visit her personal website here (where you can set up an appointment).

BDSM Toy Review: Wooden Paddle by Devilish Designs | Dirk Hooper Fetish Photography

BDSM Toy Review: Wooden Paddle by Devilish Designs | Dirk Hooper Fetish Photography

I’ve been in the BDSM community for over 20 years now, and I’ve got more than a few toy bags filled with goodies that I’ve collected here and there.

IMG_1521I think like most people I started out by going to a local sex shop and getting some cheap mass-produced items to use. What I learned quickly is that those items are abysmal to use, they are often unsafe, and they break easily.

The toys I enjoy the most, without fail, are the hand-crafted items that I’ve bought at events or through the internet. I have a beautiful suede flogger that was custom-made for me about fifteen years ago that continues to be one of favorite toys.

Good shit… handmade shit… lasts! And the quality speaks for itself.

What that brings me to is a paddle that The Baron, from Devilish Designs, sent me to review.

Before The Baron sent me this paddle he asked if I liked “stingy” or “thuddy” more. I tend to use both, depending on who I’m using toys on, but I really like a thuddy paddle. What he sent me was a little of both.

Custom Paddles

IMG_1526The thing you need to know, first and foremost, is that The Baron puts a lot of love and care into his work. Just check through his Ebay shop and you’ll see various designs with different colors and various woods. Some are thuddy. Some are stingy. Some of his items are experimental. But all of them are custom-made and every damn one is unique.

If you order something from Devilish Designs, you’re going to get a one-of-a-kind item.

This Devilish Designs Paddle

IMG_1525The paddle you see in the photos here is 21” long and ¾” thick. The wood grain and finishing is gorgeous. It’s expertly refined, smooth… and deadly.

The feel of this paddle in your hands is simply described as thrilling. It’s solid. You know it’s built to last.

I tried it out on myself, and on a partner and I can tell you that it works as advertised. It’s got a nice sting to it, but because of the thickness it has some thud too. It’s fun to use. My partner enjoyed having it used on her, and I enjoyed playing with it.

I could use it for some blunt force, or whale on it to get the maximum effect. It’s well-balanced, and the perfect size.

Conclusions

IMG_1523This paddle is well-crafted and effective. It’s also unique, which I like a lot and I appreciate now more than ever. It’s also a pretty pony, that I will be happy to drag out of my bag and show off to others for years to come.

Mostly though, I take pride in having a piece that was created by someone who is a member of the BDSM community and wants to create quality work for all of us.

The book is about a Russian mob boss who becomes obsessed with a beautiful New York graphic designer. There’s some BDSM in the book (it was a perfect fit for me) and a ton of great characters that you’re going to love. We’re waiting for Amazon to approve the audio. As soon as the audiobook is live I’ll be sure to make the big announcement.

Thanks to everyone for all the beautiful words of encouragement and support that I’ve received lately. I really deeply appreciate it.

I hope all of you are doing well and enjoying Spring so far.

Cirque Fantastique Fetish Body Art Set by Dirk Hooper

Cirque Fantastique Fetish Body Art Set by Dirk Hooper

This set, from several years ago, was inspired by a local erotic art show where the theme was an erotic circus.

I thought it would be fun to do something with a Lion-Tamer and a couple of cats, so I contacted body artist Scott Van Eck and asked if he was interested. The result is what you see here.

Three Toxic Goddess models, Dame Lebeau, Selkie and Loki, really did an amazing job on this shoot. The two “cats” didn’t just model for this set… they became cats! It was awesome!

This is a complete re-work of the set and features some photos that have never been seen before.

Please click on the thumbnails to see the full size photos below.
