At DomCon, I had the pleasure of meeting Rico JC, photographer- and videographer-extraordinaire for kinky people.
Rico shared with me a recent promotional video that he made for internationally renowned pro-domina Snow Mercy. It’s smoking hot, high quality, and apparently has had the effect of massively increasing visitors to her site, and interest from potential new clients.
Rico’s talent lies in planning, preparing and shooting videos in a way that is erotic and compelling, but not x-rated. While I am certainly no prude about porn, I think it’s important to recognize that a large section of kinky people may be turned off when it’s shoved in their face. If instead, you draw a viewer in with sensual eroticism, then they may be more likely to focus on the subject matter that you are portraying – be that the allure of tight bondage, or the thrill of power exchange. Ultimately, it’s appealing to a wider audience and one that reaches beyond the already established kinkster to the new and curious that are most likely to be a potential new client.
I was discussing with Rico and he told me that he loves the art and creativity that can go into fetish-themed shoots. “When you are dealing with subjects that have been taboo for so long, there is so much scope for creating unique and original concepts. I love hearing input from clients about ideas they have for shoots – it’s a lot of fun working together to bring these to life.”
Rico is currently offering his services to create promotional videos at a surprisingly reasonable rate. If you book him during June 2016, he’ll give you 50% off his usual rate, and plan, shoot, edit and deliver you a video for the bargain rate of $250. We’ve even agreed to feature videos he produces here on Kink Weekly, so you can build your kinky brand and also get a publicity boost.
If you are a pro Dominatrix, Dom, sub, educator, or offer any other services to the kinky community, I highly recommend you contact Rico and consider booking him for a video or photo shoot. You can see more of his work and contact / book him here: www.ricojc.com/. Mention Kink Weekly to get his special $250 promo video rate for June.
