Ken Marcus Review by Maggie Ken Marcus

Review by Maggie

Released Jan 25, '13 , Written Jan 21, '13
Intro

Ken Marcus is a world-renowned erotic bondage photographer known for his beautiful fetish and glamour work. His photos have graced the covers of Playboy, Penthouse, and Muscle and Fitness magazines. Today we check out his official website which offers an exclusive look at these gorgeous photo and video sets.


The Pros

  Exclusive glamour fetish collection.

These are all original scenes shot by Ken Marcus himself. The models are beautiful professional who pose and seduce in high glamour scenes. They wear fetish clothes, like strappy leather outfits and thigh high stockings with heels and boots. There's a light and a dark side to these scenes, as you'll see a certain goth element at times but in the next set you'll see a cutie in pink. The action is generally softcore but does dabble in insertions and anal play. It's a very sexy collection with a nice variety while still keeping to the theme of the site.

  Good-sized site.

Ken Marcus has been online since the 90s, so he's built up an impressive collection. There are currently 500 galleries and 60 videos. While perhaps not the massive collection one would expect after a decade, there's still a lot of unique material here for members to enjoy.

  High quality content.

As you'd expect on a photographer site, the content quality here is excellent. The photos go up to 3000 x 2000 and include options for printing some poster-size images. These scenes are sharp, well-lit, and exactly what you'd hope to see on the website of such an accomplished photographer. The video quality is also quite high, with high definition files offered for most scenes.

  Easy to navigate.

Getting around the large site was no problem, thanks to a clean design and some great user tools. The photos and videos are in their own sections and can be ordered by date, name, and popularity. There's also a model index with the same sort options. The advanced search lets you select from keywords, content type, and numerous categories, so you can pinpoint exactly what you're looking for. It's a very smart set-up.

Other Good Stuff:

  • Photo updates come often. You can expect two new galleries each week.
  • There are several options for watching the videos. They can be streamed in Flash and downloaded as a wmv, mp4, QT, and flv file. Every option comes with two quality settings, as well.
  • Photos are offered in five image sizes and all five sizes can be downloaded in zip files.

The Cons

  Small video section.

I was really surprised to find just 60 videos online. While I know this is a photography site, it's still a remarkably small video collection.

  Older photos much smaller.

As you go back to the earliest galleries from the 90s, you'll find that the images are considerably smaller. They max out at just 800 x 600.

Minor Negatives:

  • Video updates come much less frequently. It's been two months since anything new has been added in that section of the site.
  • The blog is extremely inactive, with just one or two posts per year.

Bottom Line

Glamour fetish fans will love this high quality collection and user-friendly site.

Ken Marcus offers up a very sexy collection of erotic fetish and glamour scenes on this user-friendly site. Of course, the quality was excellent and the scenes were beautiful. The $30 a month price is exactly what I'd expect to pay for a great site like this. While I do wish the video section was stronger, it's important to remember this is a photo site and in that area Marcus excels. This is a hot collection that I will definitely be coming back to.
