Patrik Bantle, born in 1964, lives in Rottweil and Halle (Germany), started taking photographs at age 16.

Following several years without photographing, he discovered his penchant for nude and erotic photography in 2004.

His special interest, however, is devoted to fetish photography with a particular fascination for lacquer and latex.

He preferably works at unusual locations, fetish events and in his own studio.

He views the world through his lens and imagines what the ultimate picture should look like. He loves the female body with its beauty and flaws, its curves that are changing in every light.

His models do not necessarily have to be immaculately beautiful but interesting and intriguing. He loves to take photographs of women in pin-up or fetish settings with eccentric apparel and accessories.
