Ken Marcus Review by Duke Ken Marcus

Review by Duke

Released Jul 5, '11 , Written Jun 20, '11
Intro

Ken Marcus is home to this famed photographer's picture and video collection. The descriptor they use is "Exquisite Erotica" which fits and I'd say the main thing separating this collection from other individual glamour photographer archives is the focus on fetish content. Along with that theme comes a mix of solo model, girl/girl, guy/girl, and groups so it's not just solo girls stripping/posing. Guests can get a nice feel for the style and included models from the guest tour samples.


The Pros

  Exclusive Fetish Glamour Photos/Videos by Ken Marcus.

This is indeed an original collection of work by Ken Marcus with sexy pro models in very stylish glamour fetish action. The scenes range from solo stripping/posing to girl/girl and guy/girl bondage, toys, sybian, latex, etc. The artistic style is a big part of things as there is a high production value including things like B&W shoots and studio backdrops.

  High-Res Photos, Five Image Sizes & Five Zip Levels.

Pictures dominate the site in terms of quantity compared to the videos and the quality/options are very solid. Five image sizes are available which is more than you'll see from just about any site including others in the glamour/photography genres. Top level come in at 3000x2000 and all the five sized can be viewed online or saved in zips.

  HD Quality Videos, Many DL Formats, HD Flash Streaming.

Video quality and formatting is on par with that of the pictures as they have many choices including full-movie downloads in WMV, QT, FLV, MP4 and 3GP. The WMV and QT have specs at 3000k 1280x720 so they are HD as is the in-browser Flash streaming. All the formats also have clip segments for users who prefer to grab only part of a scene.

Other Good Stuff:

  • Site design is sharp with clear photo and video sections along with a sortable model index and niche category browsing. Written descriptions are provided for both the models and scenes.
  • Content items are all date-stamped with update info showing when they were added to the site. The member's home page has a log of recent site updates.

The Cons

  Smallish Videos Section, Many Models with Pictures Only.

The photography section has galleries dating back quite a number of years while the videos area has movies from 2009 as the oldest. Photography is the main focus of things and the video area could stand more growth. Mostly I'd just like to see more of the models have videos shoots included in their portfolio since if you browse by the model index there is a good chance that your model of choice will have pictures only without videos.

  Average Update Pace Overall, Fairly Slow Video Updates.

Ken Marcus has had a long career which is evident as there are some special features and premastered items from a couple decades back. The site would benefit from more frequent additions even if they were classic sets. The video section in particular averages just two updates per month.

Minor Negatives:

  • Upon opening individual video pages the streaming video always starts playing which can be a bit annoying if you're just there looking for the download links. Also, picture galleries always default to 800 pixel level so you must select the higher level on each gallery to view those pics.
  • No file size information is provided on the downloadable video files or photo gallery zips.
  • Older photo galleries have fewer zip file levels available. Older videos have lower specs that aren't HD level.

The other
  • Additional items include a fairly in-active blog (a few posts per year) and private messaging system to correspond with Ken, and some Earl Miller guest galleries. Members can also post feedback/comments on the scenes.

Bottom Line

Ken Marcus has an original collection of glamour style fetish photography & videos.

The main things working in Ken Marcus' favor is the exclusive collection, high quality content, and wide range of download/viewing formats. These are the site's strengths. Where things could improve is mostly in the videos section which is fairly small and doesn%u2019t update as often as I think it should. Lots of the models have pics only without video scenes. Overall it's a well done medium-sized site showcasing the work of Marcus' work.
