Sinical Magazine: This is your third set and cover for Sinical. Can you talk about this photo series?

Sister Sinister: Yes! It’s very cool that this will be my third cover of Sinical Magazine. Thank you for having me again. These photos are actually taken in a corner of my office. We have this amazing old vinyl player/radio and I always wanted to take some pictures including it. I chose to layer a few pieces for this shoot, combining both latex, sheer fabrics, body harness, choker, corset and of course nylons. I wanted to keep it a little bit dark and moody but still glamorous. There are many many more photos from this set and they will later be up on my website.

Sinical Magazine: Which social media platforms do you like to use to promote your new images?

Sister Sinister: I try to use several platforms to promote new photos and video. I have been using Facebook a lot the last few years but it has become harder and harder to reach out to all the followers there since they changed their “system”, and now you have to pay big money for all your fans to see new posts. So I also post on Instagram and Twitter, where it’s not as restricted. They all have their pros and cons but I think a combination of them all is the best.

 

 

Sinical Magazine: You’ve relocated from Sweden to Germany. What caused this relocation?

Sister Sinister: I was in Germany for a photo shoot and by accident met a person who I got along with very well and that has a lot of experience in marketing, artist, and business development. We decided to go in to business together and as I have more work in Germany than in Sweden it just made sense to relocate to where I have better opportunities for work and also it would be easier for us to build up our company together. Other than that Germany is pretty great in general! Especially if you like beer, which I do.

Sinical Magazine: Aside from modeling, you are also a photographer. Can you talk about how you became interested in this?

Sister Sinister: That’s right. I actually do a fair bit of photography and also video these days. Especially for my company but also other clients. I was helping out a lot as a light assistant in the beginning of my modelling career which helped me understand that part of photography pretty well from the beginning. I would often also edit my own photos that I shot with my in house photographer at the time so to take the step to explore more of the photography side just came naturally to me. There was also many times that I had ideas I wanted to try or a specific image in my head I wanted to create and didn’t have someone around who could help me, so I ended up starting with self-portraits to make my ideas come to life and learned a lot that way. After that as I was working with designers to take product pictures for their web shops and promotion material and so on I would usually end up shooting that myself as well. It was just quicker, more convenient and I could make sure to deliver the material on time. Then I started shooting other models now and then, mostly friends who were patient and we already had a good relationship and were comfortable with each other. That helped me grow my confidence on the other side of the lens and now I really enjoy doing photography work of all sorts.

 

 

Sinical Magazine: What type of equipment and lighting do you like to use?

Sister Sinister: When I started I didn’t really have so much equipment to play with so I learnt how to get good pictures with not so many lights and my first camera was a Canon 1000D. I still prefer to keep it fairly simple and I love to shoot outside and use natural light when i can. These days I shoot with a Canon 5D Mark III. I use my old trusted Elinchrome flashes, and I could never live with out my beauty dish!

Sinical Magazine: Do you have any influences photography-wise?

Sister Sinister: There are many photographers who I look up to and that have inspired me during the years. I wouldn’t say that my work is in any way like theirs and you couldn’t look at my pictures and think “Aaah, that’s inspired by THAT photographer”. But I admire the work of for example Annie Leibovitz, Helmut Newton, David LaChapelle, and I often return to admire the work of Nicolas Guerin. But there are so many talented people out there and so many gorgeous images to be inspired by.

 

 

Sinical Magazine: Can you talk about Terminal F? What inspired this project?

Sister Sinister: Well basically Terminal F is just a part of my company. But Terminal F was created partly because many models, like the ones we feature on Terminal F have a lot of great content and massive amounts of people following and admiring their work. But there was not really a good platform for them to display it so we wanted to create a place online were people can get so much more to see from their favourite models. And of course this will also help them finance their continuing modelling work as they work really hard and we want them to get something more out of it that can help them create more great art. Anyone can join Terminal F for free, but you can also choose get unlimited access to your favourite models content by getting a subscription to support them. We have our main models that have their personal zones on the site, like Starfucked, Psylocke, Kay Morgan, Lotte Groeneweg, MadMoiselle Peachy, and of course myself. But we also want to open up new and more possibilities for other models and even photographers, so therefore we have a guest section were we regularly feature the work of both models and photographers from all around the world. Whenever I spoke to models about the role of a model in our business in general, it turned out, that almost everybody is very passionate about shooting pictures and promoting themselves. We as models and also photographers invest a lot of time and money in our art. Some models even have hundred thousands if not millions of fans. Of course, companies like to advertise their products by using photos and names of models. But unfortunately I very often hear that models, although they work really hard, don’t make any profit. This is why I have my company designed to be an agency. Together with copyright-law professionals we want to raise awareness that every artistic person, model or photographer, always have rights to the art they create. We have during the last year created strategies that will help models and photographers to get a share of the profit that is made with their images without the danger of loosing customers. Besides this, there are many media companies that just use model’s material without having the permission to do so. We want to raise awareness and change this for a more fair future. Again I want to invite anybody interested to get in touch with us, I am sure that we can support a lot of artists out there.

Sinical Magazine: How much content is on the Terminal F website?

Sister Sinister: There is already quite a lot! The site has been online for a little under a month now, but already we have over 800 exclusive high quality photos online, over 30 minutes of HD video entertainment and a whole lot of exclusive private pictures from our models. And there will be so much more. We are very happy to be able to update the site almost daily with new material. And we have so many plans for the future of really cool stuff to add to the site. Like VR photos and video for example. You don’t want to miss that! 

Sinical Magazine: Do you have any other projects you would like to mention?

Sister Sinister: Other than Terminal F and the agency I have a few other projects going as well. From designing my own fashion to building my own new photography and film studio. These are very exciting and time consuming things. I also have some exciting photo jobs coming up both as a model and photographer, and even some of them abroad in nice warm countries. I will keep you updated on my projects and show you when I have some finished results. Don’t hesitate to contact me, anyone who would like to work with Terminal F, or book me for your own projects. Thanks for having me Sinical Magazine! |
