Dirk Hooper (born 1969) is an American fetish photographer and fetish artist. He was raised in Moore, Oklahoma, where he resides today. He attended the University of Oklahoma in 1988 for filmmaking and again in 1999 where he pursued a degree in media arts with an emphasis in photography.
During the mid nineties, Dirk had a stint as a comic artist and comic writer on a comic named "Rough Cut" and a pin up comic titled "Bad Girls". He has also done pen and ink illustration work for "The Darkmoor Talisman" and numerous commercial projects.
In 1999, Dirk began doing band photography for local musicians, and working on a fine art career with both photography and mixed media artwork. Since that time he has displayed work in the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art, and venues including the Individual Artists of Oklahoma Gallery, The Electric Chair Gallery and The Dirty Show in Detroit, Michigan.
While much of his work comes from his own imagination, he has sought out dominatrix, fetish celebrities and adult entertainers to expand his portfolio. Dirk has built a body of work that focuses on fantasy, science, metaphysics, fashion, sexual fetishism and goth subculture influences. It has been said that, "Dirk Hooper's gothic photography tells forbidden tales to rival the likes of H. P. Lovecraft and the Marquis de Sade."
Dirk Hooper is CEO and Chairman of the Board for Sight Key Studios Incorporated, an entertainment company that provides content for several websites, including Toxic Goddess and The Beefboy Rants.
