Model Tori Mai Interview


Photographer Dark Matter Images


Tori Mai: I have been modelling for 11 years now,and I just adore having the ability to force individual to look twice at my art. I magnatise toward most arts but I gather most enjoyment from being part of the incredible art I have so far been part of.

FETFAN: How did you get started with modeling and how long have you been in the industry?

Tori Mai: I first started on the fetish scene eleven years ago, I was at the time dancing professionally and the company then released an alternative clothing line.

FETFAN: Your work is definitely unique, how did you decide or how did you discover this side of you as a model?

Tori Mai: I can honestly agree with you on how unique my art is, however this boundary pushing uniqueness has only come around since meeting my boyfriend. The art he creates as a photographer truly inspires me so deciding to further push the boundaries of art with him is simple.

FETFAN: What is your favorite category to model and why?

Tori Mai: My favorite category actually is the bondage art I create with darkmatterimages, I'm able to produce amazing art with him and get wrapped in rope at the same time.

FETFAN: Do you have an hidden talents?

Tori Mai: Most people don't know this but I am a classically trained dancer in ballet and tap. Unfortunately due to a hip injury I'm unable to dance any more.

FETFAN: Do you ever get shy in front of the camera?

Tori Mai: I very rarely get to create anything with darkmatterimages, however when we do plan I actually get extremely camera shy, nervous, and scared in combination with the worst tummy pains.

FETFAN: FETFAN Magazine is an alternative fine art nude magazine, but at the same time allowing artists to express themselves through their art. Fetishes are one of these forms. Do you have any fetishes that you have modeled or personally find interesting?

Tori Mai: I adore bondage and rope play is a huge fetish for me. So when I had the opportunity to be part of darkmattetimages' water bondage series I was thrilled, for all the right reasons of course.

FETFAN: Nudes, fine art nudes, how do you feel about the concept and how do you prepare for this type of shoot?

Tori Mai: Fine art nude and nude I feel is down to each individual eye. My eye sees them on very different levels, however, at the same time I'm able to appreciate the next persons opinion. I have been part of both sets and I don't feel I've had the opportunity to be part of what I consider to be fine art.

FETFAN: Throughout your modeling I'm sure you have been to many different places, which have been your favorite and what kind of project were you working on?

Tori Mai: I have had so many amazing opportunities to travel to some great places ,nothing beats a national tour. When darkmatterimages is able to join me and we are able to work together, it's priceless for me. I adored my London tour last year with darkmatterimages when we were able to work on the water bondage series.

FETFAN: Is there anyone who has inspired your work?

Tori Mai: Darkmatterimages is without a doubt my inspiration as an artist. I'm sure he has pixels in his veins, along with a dark twisted beautiful mind that is enough to inspire anyone as an artist.

FETFAN: When at a photoshoot, what do you love most about the experience and what do you find challenging as a model?

Tori Mai: When I'm actually on set or location I love being part of someones vision and art, however there are always challenges and I find it difficult when there is no connection with the photographer.

FETFAN: How would you best describe yourself using just 3 words?

Tori Mai: Three words to best describe me: scatty, loving, and accident prone.

FETFAN: Five things you can't live without?

Tori Mai: Five things I cant live without: my phone, eyeliner, salt and vinegar chrisps, my pillow case I sleep with (its really old and skanky but I find it hard to sleep without), and of course life would be pretty hard without darkmatterimages.

FETFAN: Favorite movie?

Tori Mai: My favorite movie is Blithe Spirit.

FETFAN: If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Tori Mai: Salt and vinegar chrisps.

FETFAN: What do you think your strongest feature is in modeling?

Tori Mai: My strongest feature in modelling I feel is body awareness. I'm pretty good at knowing how to hold my body the strongest and how to portray the best part of me.

FETFAN: At the end of the day when all is done what are you most proud of?

Tori Mai: I am most proud and thankful of my relationship with darkmatterimages. He inspires me every day and as an artist I adore him completely; being able to meet him and merge our work life as we have makes me extremely proud.

FETFAN: [b/]If you would like to add a few words or anything else you would like to tell your fans please do so.

Tori Mai: I am thankful to all of my fans especially the following I have on fetlife. I am truly grateful for every kind word, message, and comment I have ever received. My art wouldn't be what it is without the support of my Fans .
