‘There is a great image within five feet of you, if you have the eyes to see, the heart to feel and the equipment to capture it with.’ That’s Patrick Parenteau’s philosophy, and based as he is in Vancouver, one thing he often finds himself within five feet of is a fetish party.
He does a lot of nightclub work, including at Sin City, which we’ve already encountered in the work of his fellow citizen Atratus. And when you’re shooting at Sin City, there’s always just a chance that, at some point in the evening, there might be a spanking taking place within five feet of you:
In 2014, Sin City launched a themed series of parties that were actually entitled SPANK!, and were described ‘the closest thing to partying in Berlin that you will find in Vancouver’. It was, perhaps, obvious what was going to be done to publicize it, and Patrick was the photographer chosen to shoot the picture. The models were Sin City’s very own DJs, Berlin Stiller and the proudly Canadian Evilyn Thirteen:
Evilyn has modeled with masterful men before:
She’s had her bottom smacked, in front of Atratus’ all-seeing camera lens:
And she’s also not a complete stranger to a good spanking, as we can see in these pictures shot by the excellent Vancouver bondage photographer Uncle M, and also starring Sly Foxxx:
Now it’s time for her to go over Berlin’s knee. Luckily Patrick’s camera was less than five feet away!
Here’s how the picture appeared on the poster:
Patrick took his camera to SPANK!, but oddly enough he didn’t manage to photograph any spanking. Maybe it was just happening more than five feet away, but I think it’s more likely to be the old, old problem with parties and photobooths: it’s always easier to smack than to spank.
But at the Sin City Valentine Party in 2015, he finally got to shoot a proper spanking – and administer it too. The lady across his knees is Nikki Rose, and the knees themselves tell their own story:
According to Patrick, he had to kneel down and beg her to do the shot!
And right up to date, here he is with another obliging friend at Sin City’s 2015 Halloween party:
