ARTofSHADOWS.com is it’s own platform!
The webmaster here is a shadow, a person who wants no attention or prefers an underground status.
I have never had long term goals for this site and do not ever plan on them for AOS. It just exists if it’s wanted.
It started because people requested to “see more from the shoots”, eventually it took offering me money to create this system.
Heinrich Blutträumer (ShadowsFührer) is a third person alias and character in a story I have created, he is the official webmaster of ARTofSHADOWS.com.
± is the official symbol for the shadows, shadow speak samples. – blutträumer + , ± blutträumer ± , + blutträumer – , and finally the worst use – blutträumer -. Each having different meanings, there are a few others. Invisible but in plain sight.
The site is a collection of photo and video shoots of female models mainly from the early 2000’s to present.
AOS runs from a dedicated and cloud server system, at times we swap our setup around without notice.
We pride ourself on being totally awkward, dark and unpredictable. You just never know what’s next on AOS.
Dark mode is always on here. I have very light sensitive eyes and why I am always squinting which makes me look angry.
We hire models for rare shoots a few times of the year, main location is in the San Antonio, TX USA area.
All members here are called Lurkers, this name is used due to many members being my biggest haters. Lurkers always hide in the shadows.
The webmaster here cannot stand the plague of the internet, social media.
The most hated Heinrich Blutträumer, why? I have been called the rudest photographer by many for not putting up with bs. Some “divas” play the pussy pass card and are in for a shock when it doesn’t have value with me. Truth is I’m very polite but will reflect your attitude back at you if being a dummy.
$Cash money is a real like, I get no dopamine rush from followers or likes, value metric $ aka the gold standard.
I spend lots of time searching/buying new internet sites and domains, there are a ton of redirects to this site.
Products here all expire usually after 30 days, shoots are broken into multiple parts from photo and video shoots. You can see the entire shoot if you were to purchase all parts if available.
After a year or so of the paid membership options here the site entirely funds my shoots, travel, outfits for models, and more. Shoots are now investments and I am looking for better and better talent. Don’t get me wrong I still love doing this but it has its downsides mainly due to my limited free time and long hours. This site is not easy to run at all.
Even before this site I have always had wealthy private individuals funding my shoots occasionally, over time I have built in features to this site to cater to these “Shadows”. These are the true VIP members of the site and have a “± Shadow ±” mode activated for their accounts.
I have setup other WordPress pay/member sites similar to this one for others, the price for this is for my time and software purchases, proper server/domain for your content, custom config, and bug checking. If you are wanting something like this site you may Kontakt me, but keep in mind a site like this requires constant updates and supervision from a decent webmaster. Many advantages to it since you are in charge, it is not cheap to get one exactly like this e-commerce setup. With a few simple tweaks this site can sell and even ship anything approved.
