It’s my greatest desire to use this award as a catalyst to meet new collaborators and as inspiration to continue to improve my art,” Dirk Hooper said, “Thanks also to the Fetish Awards and Fetish Con™ for holding this event. There are so few opportunities for those of us in the industry to get any recognition, which makes the Fetish Awards so important.”
