A fetish photographer is a photographer who takes photographs of people in fetishistic situations, such as in bondage, or wearing rubber or leather clothing. More extreme fetish photography depicts paraphiliac acts such as urination, enemas, or BDSM activities.

A bondage photographer is a fetish photographer specialising in depictions of people in bondage. He/she will often also be a bondage rigger and put the models into bondage.

Depending on your point of view, fetish photography can be fine art, erotica, pornography or perhaps a combination of these.

Once only published in bondage magazines, fetishistic photography is now also published as "art books". The publisher Taschen has been a prominent force in getting fetishistic imagery accepted into the mainstream. Bondage and fetish imagery has also made its way into mainstream pornographic magazines.

The pioneering fetish photographer was arguably John Willie, who published a famous fetishistic magazine, "Bizarre", from 1946 to 1959.
