Tanya Chalkin and Her Lesbian Photographs

Tanya Chalkin studied at The Chelsea College of Art and Design and continued her education at The London College Of Printing (now known as The London College Of Communication) where she received a BA (Hons) Photography Degree. She quickly established herself as an exciting young photographer shooting for a number of publications including the music magazines MixMag and Ministry Magazine.

Tanya’s flare for fashion and portraits became apparent when she started shooting main features for the likes of Arena Hommes Plus, Dazed & Confused, Esquire, FHM Collections, Attitude, and many national newspapers including, The Guardian Weekend magazine and The Evening Standard (London).

She has also appeared on a selection of television programmes including Channel 4’s Model Behaviour. As well as becoming a well respected fashion / portrait photographer, Tanya started working on her own images and is the author of the internationally acclaimed and global best selling poster, ‘Kiss’. ‘Kiss’ is now considered to be an iconic image and has attracted the attention of a major Hollywood based production team who are developing a movie inspired by ‘Kiss’. Her images are also often used for set dressing in both film and television productions including a new Universal Pictures film currently in production.

Following on from the success of Kiss, Tanya has developed an ever growing worldwide fan base and now has other hugely successful posters in the global market place – Sleeping Beauties, Sirens, Born To Ride, Sixty Nine, Boy and L’Homme as well as best selling calendars for 2006 and 2007 and 2008. Triumph Motorcycles commissioned Tanya to shoot a 2008 calendar which has become hugely successful and globally recognised. Exciting New posters released for 2009 include Secret Kiss, Bottom, Red Hot, Beauty, Girls and HOT LIPS.

Tanya recently shot a ‘Fur Is A Drag’ campaign for the organisation PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), as she is strongly opposed to cruelty to animals.

Tanya’s creative flare was also noticed by the producers of Viva La Diva, the highly acclaimed all singing all dancing production staring the two internationally acclaimed stars, Darcey Bussell and Katherine Jenkins, who asked her to photograph the production.

Most recently, Tanya has been working in the music industry photographing a number of high profile acts (see below), including Faryl Smith’s debut album (“Faryl”) for Universal Music and Patrizio Buanne’s album (“Patrizio”) for Warner Records.

Tanya continues to work on a fabulous coffee table book that she aims to publish and release in the near future. Images will include many of her poster images and portraits which will coincide with a gallery exhibition in Los Angeles, New York and London. Tanya will also be showing work in a group show, in Monaco, early 2010.

The long-awaited Tanya Chalkin 2010 SECRETS calendar (published through Danilo) is now available and encompasses an exciting array of beautiful images.
