"Desperate times call for sexy measures. As this corona virus has not allowed me to get within 6 feet of a model or a gallery, I've dug deep into my archives and pulled out the hottest photos I have and put them on an Only Fans page. Now my followers can go digging deep into my computer and see all sorts of photos that I've never been able to show before. They can also see 100's of different models, all races, ages and sizes. They can view many photos from the same shoot so they can see a certain model from every angle. My followers will be able to see all the different styles and sides of my art, from artistic to sexy and from whimsy to lustful. All with no black curtains to click on, black boxes to wonder what's behind there, and completely uncensored. I'll be adding new content every week. And with almost 20 years of shooting the male physique, I've got a HUGE amount of content. All this for the price of a cocktail. So now my friends and followers can support me without having to pay hundreds of dollars for one photo to hang on their wall. Although, all the art is available to be printed and hung, so there is always still that option. See more on my website."
Terry Hastings discovered photography after years in the theater and performing arts. He may have previously directed performers onstage into great configurations and stage pictures, he now collaborates with the four elements: Wind, Water, Earth, and Fire.
In the Fall of 2009 Terry moved to Palm Springs from Minneapolis. He was immediately taken with his surroundings both geographical and societal. He found this place to be a dichotomy of people: one set basking in a verdant oasis and the other set struggling in a city that was barren and dry.
Terry's first geographic adventure was out to the sand dunes just north of Palm Springs. You can see them just off the highway to your right, as you enter from Los Angeles, this little pile of sand as if the mountain split a seam. Terry grabbed his camera, a model, and 15 yards of fabric he just happened to have lying around, and set out on his adventure. The wind makes a wonderful dance partner and Terry snapped shots capturing the beauty created by model, fabric, and wind. Sometimes the wind blows off the mountain, sometimes it blows into the mountain, and on those most special of days, it blows straight up to the sky!
Terry prints his photographs on metal and they are available at a reasonable price through his web site.
