Victor Rose is a self-identified genderqueer(trans) individual who has a proclivity for many things. Born in April of 1986, he has often been considered a jack of all trades and a social outcast. Fortunate in his high school’s artistic and musical programs, Victor was able to indulge in a variety of mediums to include illustration, photography, sculpture, jewelry, music composition, public speaking, musical performance, and even genetics. Sadly, there were complexities in pursuing higher education, though with some careful planning and strategy, he was able to attend a specialized trade school that was focused strictly on woodworking of the artisanal variety. This program was exceptionally valuable in finding steady work as well as self-discipline in the form of artistic expression. Homelessness and life hardship following a divorce were some major roadblocks to overcome in his mid twenties. With stubborn resolve, Victor has since overcome suicidal ideation, Schizophrenia, and the loss of several close family members to illness and suicide. He now devotes his time to activism, education regarding sexual liberation, and raising money for local LGBT groups.

I began Thirteen Lashes Photography in 2007 as a safe place for those of us who are kinky or live alternative lifestyles to have intimate photos taken without fear of judgement and without fear of being outed. This was a time when webcam and bathroom selfies were all the rage for CollarMe. As I type this, I realize, sadly, that we have come full circle except now it’s Snapchat and Instagram selfies! Over the years, I began to include other aspects of photography. Nature, conservation, environmental, still life and event photography. My photography is just as eclectic as I am.

I am an expatriate Briton living and working in Miami, Florida. I moved to South Florida over 20 years ago and take every opportunity I can to explore the surrounding area for potential shoot locations. I try to stay versatile – my subject matter over the years has ranged from wildlife to landscapes to detailed macro work, but my real passion is photographing the human body in all its glory. In recent years this has manifested as a distinct preference for artistic nudes and the darker side of human nature and sexuality. My favourite kind of shoot combines the sensuality of a nude model with the restriction and tension of Japanese style shibari/kinbaku (rope bondage). I am a well respected and active figure in the South Florida fetish and bondage photography scene. I also shoot a lot of pinup, tattoo and alternative models so I suppose my ultimate shoot would be a nude, tattooed pinup model in a rope suspension! My preference in post processing is always for black and white, but the plethora of digital post-processing tools available makes experimentation with all kinds of film effects a joy in this digital world.
