About Torrid Art
Or, what the heck happened??

Hi everybody. Ryder here.
Torrid Art, the membership website, is no more. It has been replaced by what you see before you—a portfolio for yours truly, with some free galleries and a few sponsor links. We are the same people that brought you Torrid Art the membership website.
Torrid Art the membership website was online for 10 years. During its life, it saw good world economies and bad. It saw sweeping changes in the online adult industry. It saw many erotica membership websites come and go. Torrid Art the membership website had a good run. But like many good things, it came to an end.
At the end, there were 109 models, 508 galleries, and 56,167 photos. I worked with every model, photographed every gallery, and took every photo on the site. After all that, and with TA ending, Torrid Art the portfolio became one of my "new" projects. In addition to a portfolio, the new TA has about 20 of the old TA galleries on display. The galleries are free for viewing and downloading.
Our plans for TA include photography discussions, insights, and tips. After photographing over 500 galleries, I felt like my head might explode unless I wrote down some of what I had learned. As I add written content, TA will evolve into a site about photographing erotica galleries on location. The free galleries will remain—they are the examples of lighting, models, and locations that fuel the photography discussions.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. We apologize for any inconvenience. If you are looking for a new membership website, please visit our sponsors. I'm sure you'll find something you like.
