||This is a site which had been on my list to try for quite some time; I kept sidelining it since it kind of scared me, but I was eventually won over by the presence of many fetish models I like - eg Jade Vixen, Emily Marilyn, Darenzia and even Dita von Teese. And it turns out that I really shouldn't have worried since it has some really great, original, and sexy material.
A look at the site will probably reveal what scared me about it - there is some heavy makeup, sometimes tidy, sometimes smeared over the model's face and hands; some with their faces fully painted or their whole body covered in glitter. As haagar mentioned - be sure to read his review too - it gets weirder, with some sets focused around the toilet, peeing, or models covered in blood (!) But that's only part of it; and there's just as much material at the milder end of the glam fetish theme - there are lots of heels, nylons, fishnets, boots, corsets and lingerie and the models look in control, assertive, and sometimes dominant... all things that appeal to me. As does the softer material here - more typical glamour shots, beds, lingerie etc - but still in the photographer's same style.
There are roughly 1000 photo sets here, going back to 2006. They are lean, with an average of maybe 25 photos per set; many folk would find that too small, but in the hands of a good photographer, as Richard Avery certainly is, I consider it a plus; they are pruned, tightly edited to leave every shot a good one. Many of the pictures are quite stark, and I think that 100+ pics in a set would lessen the impact; but it's a shame they are only offered at 1600px, which for me is the bare minimum; I'd rather have seen 3-4K.
Some sets have the context of a location but quite a lot are on plain studio backgrounds, some are grainy and many are black and white - themes I usually dismiss as being too arty and boring, but here there's a rawness that makes even these far more interesting. Although there's no hardcore as such - an occasional set featuring the photographer's hand, perhaps - it's otherwise quite explicit, with most sets featuring masturbation, and there are a lot of upskirt shots - usually without the skirt, but you get the idea/angle. The models have a big part in making it so interesting; About 100 or so, including a lot of well-known porn stars (I particularly liked Bobbi Starr, Zoe Britton, Michelle Maylene & Tori Black), but not quite as you've seen them before; there's a quality of it being obviously more glam and staged; but somehow also more real, than typical porn.
Videos have a similar theme, although there's quite a variety - again plenty of quite explicit, raw masturbation, sometimes with toys; some girl-girl but also some BTS and interviews - recently they are shown in a very professional-looking chat show format hosted by Lexi Belle (who incidentally has a lot of material here, if you are a fan). As with the pictures, some are B&W, some grainy, some even with a night vision camera; but not at the expense of being too arty, it's still very erotic. There are about 500 videos from maybe 3-15 minutes - the older ones are quite small, at 640x360 - they are actually pretty sharp considering and look good; but many of them have no sound, just a music soundtrack. It's a mixture of ambient/trippy/grungy/spooky music, which is far better than the supposed sexy music we get elsewhere; but not having sound doesn't really work for me. The approx 100 most recent ones are HD720, but apart from the size, they emphasise more on the model talking/groaning etc and are far more interesting.
Although the style is very different, I feel this has a lot in common with Ed Fox's Foot Factory - another great photographer who shoots porn stars with a quirky, slightly underground-y style; but although I like the material at both, the quality and updates here make it by far the better site. Even if I didn't like the material as much, I'd still score this in the 80s, since it's good to see somebody doing something so unique and fresh. But as it is, although perhaps only the tamer half of it works for me, work it does, hence the score - just the lack of a better search and bigger pictures keeps it from being higher in the 90s.
The update thumbnails should give you an idea of what to expect; if the style appeals, this comes very highly recommended.
