The amazing adorable gorgeous Bran has written a super sweet blog post about the importance of having a photographer that creates a safe space for photoshoots and features me!
I love love loooove making people feel good. And I feel so honored and wonderful and warm and fuzzy when they write such amazing flattering testimonials about me!
I wish I could post all of these in one post but Tumblr won’t let me so you should just go look over at my Testimonials page!
"Good Fatty" vs "Bad Fatty"
an exploration of behaviour and the policing of women’s agency
photographer: Isabel Dresler
model: Kitty Stryker
In this I wanted to explore what constitutes “good fatty” behaviour vs “bad fatty” behaviour. I’ve had my grocery choices policed, been asked if I’m hurting the reputation of other plus size people by eating ice cream in public, and had strangers offer me diet tips when I was waiting in line. I’ve been sneered at for wearing tight clothes and been tsked for being happily sexual. As someone who only saw my body made sexualized in feeder porn, I wanted to confront the idea that being fat and sexy was shameful/ugly, rather wanting to depict shame as performed for the thin-striving gaze to earn approval. The “good fatty” is the fatty who exercises, who eats well, who hides her body. I’m a bad fatty, all the way, and I don’t give a fuck.
Kitty is seriously the best. I LOVED doing this shoot.
Hey! You! Yes, you. Are you a female-identified person? Are you organized, friendly, good at scheduling appointments and bursting with people skills? Do you have an interest in photography, videography, or the sex industry? Are you queer-friendly and sex-worker friendly, body positive and open-minded? Do you live in California in an area North of San Jose?
If you are saying yes to all of these things… I need you, and I will pay you for your time! I am looking for a clever, adaptable person to handle my bookings/scheduling/email correspondence/keep me on my toes and on the ball with photo/video clients! Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with a cover letter, a copy of your resume and a little blurb about yourself and why you’d like to work with me!
This won’t be a full time position, and I can’t promise you insurance, but if you have a few hours a week where you’re just puttering around and would like to make some extra cash then this is the job for you!
This would be a great opportunity for aspiring photographers/videographers/media-oriented people looking to get their feet wet, or wetter, in the sex industry, or the visual arts industry as well! So if you know anyone who might be interested, feel free to share my info with them and I look forward to hearing from you!

Alright darlings, let’s see how long Vimeo lets me keep this Demo Reel up before they delete my account again.

What do y’all think? Does it look okay?
Kitty Stryker really likes kale.
I still don’t like kale.
