A fetish photographer is a photographer who takes photographs of people in fetishistic situations, such as in bondage, or wearing latex or leather clothing, though they may not specialise in that form of photography. More extreme fetish photography depicts paraphiliac acts such as urination, enemas, or SM activities.

Depending on point of view, fetish photography can be considered as fine art, erotica, or pornography. Once only published in bondage magazines, fetish photography is now also published as "art books".

Taschen is one prominent publisher printing fetish books on a mass scale. Bondage and fetish imagery has also made its way into mainstream pornographic magazines.

Pioneering fetish photographers include John Willie, who published a famous fetishistic magazine, "Bizarre" from 1946 to 1959. Another pioneer photographer includes art photographer Paul Outerbridge who introduced fetish elements into his color photographs as early as the 1940s. In the 1950s, the bondage/fetish photos of Irving Klaw made Bettie Page a cult icon. Contemporary fetish photography has much since entered the mainstream with Helmut Newton bringing focal elements of high heels, lipstick and leather within a fashion-centric sphere.
