Draken Photography

Espy bizarre beauties both alluring and deadly. Encounter a variety of supernatural femmes fatales lusting for human blood. Become seduced by their dangerous charms as you view the world of horror through the lens of Draken Photography.

David Watkins, the man behind the lens at Draken Photography, resides a stone’s throw from the sea in Kent. A photographer for nearly twenty-five years, and a lover of fantasy and horror, David has melded his experience and passion to produce his alternative photography.

Not just a photographer, David also creates a lot of the props and costumes seen in his pics. He does make up as well. David has three books in print and is currently working on a fourth entitled Mythicus Femella: Creatures From Beyond Imagination.

David worked with the model Gabrielle Gothe (her real name) for five years before Gabrielle decided to move on to other things. David’s collaboration with Thorn, a movie actress as well as a model, has lasted nearly as long. He has worked with Maria (MariaUK), a widely published model and calendar girl, for three years. He and Sophie, a visual designer and model, have worked together only once so far, with future shoots planned.

More of David’s photography can be seen at his web site Draken Photography.
