Jagger Draconis – The master and the photographer

I had the opportunity to meet Jagger Draconis (also known as Jagger Classito). The photographer is very busy but still made some time for this interview to happen. Happy reading!

“Thanks for having me in your place Jagger. Is it where you live or your studio? Maybe both?”

Both actually this is my primary office and home.

“Tell me a bit about yourself. When did you start SL and why?”

Oh I’ve been in SL for about 8 years. A friend suggested I try it, so I came to SL.

“Did you find what you were looking for? Or were you surprised or disappointed by your first experiences in SL?”

I was actually neither, it was a toss up, so I just kept coming back, finding more new and interesting experiences.

“I know you’re at least an SL photographer from your Flickr stream. What do you do in SL apart from photography?”

I enjoy clubbing and the night life, I’m also a Dominate in various ways and forms. I enjoy a good relaxing beach too.

“So let’s come back to photography. How did you start? What did trigger this?”

A friend had introduced me to the porn community, I started with modelling here and there till I just decided to start taking pictures. Ever since it’s been an on going evolution of sorts.

“I see. Are you still a model? Or now sticking to the producer/photographer role?”

I still model when I catch a casting call. I’ve done a few videos as well have yet to note them all

“You played in videos? Or you produced them maybe?”

I modelled or posed in video yes. There were a couple recently: I was an actor in for Mitzy Broadway

“Nice! Which movie was it?”

The latest I believe she is still working on: Queen of Porn.

“What is your style in photography, how would you describe it?”

Oh it varies I like to do a bit of everything if I can to keep things in perspective but if I have to say one I can be pretty rough and hard core

“Could you give me a few examples of your favourites? The pictures you like the most and explain why?”

My latest picture has a very dark tone. On my Flickr “Hybrid Lust” is one. There are many I would have to select a few for you

Hybrids Lust

“Could you pick a few now?”

Perhaps my favorite sets, sweet surrender done with Tori Grayce, my pin up set wit Suki, to name but a few.

“Those sets have been taken by you?”

Yes.

In sweet surrender poses were made by me. Tori did help in some of the conceptual ideas and with certain poses

Sweet Surrender Series

Pin-up Set

With each set you can see the evolution in the photography

“Yes that is interesting to see the progress … Your sets tell a story usually … or you prefer to have one single picture telling a story?”

I can do either: a large story or a small one.

“You worked with many people in the porn industry. Is there some you particularly enjoyed to work with?”

To name a few: Kenna (Tori Grayce) who happens to be home now Suki, Rachel Avro and Jori Jewell were and are great to work with.

“Do you have a studio brand?”

Yes I started out using Draconis Studios but evolved it into Trinity Studios.

“What was the reason for this change?”

Growth…and the addition of a few artists of like mind.

“Do you plan to do your own movies too? Do you prefer to stick to photography?”

I do plan on doing my own movies at some point in the future though for now due to hardware I stick to photos.

“Yes I understand. Apart from Flickr, do you publish or advertise your work on other platforms?”

None as of yet. I am considering making a blog for the Studios.

“What are your next projects?”

My next projects are collaborative projects with Kenna, Suki, and I: telling visual stories to some of our favourite songs. Someday with hope these will turn to video.

“Do you think porn has a future in SecondLife?”

I think porn has a life of its own: it will take the photographer/model to wherever they choose if they have the patience to weather the storm.

“My last question to you…… it is more a dare actually. Can you tell us something about you very few knows, a little secret about you?”

A lil secret about me hmmmm… I’m a very open book to those that know me well and honest to a fault, I hide nothing and share just about everything.

“Thank you Jagger for your time, it was a pleasure to interview such a straight forward period. May I ask where you are from in the world?”

I’m from the US in the state of Kansas.

“We are done, thank you for your time”

You’re welcome sexy, anytime.

We did not setup a shooting with Jagger yet but we plan to do this. You will get an update in the Gazette. After the interview I could not resist to go to Jagger’s Flickr to select my favourites:
