Yes, you can have your own private bondage photoshoot!

 

Very NSFW

 

 

Potential clients always have their own ideas about what they wish to include in their private erotic photoshoot.  As a sex-positive photographer I am constantly asked if I will photograph a particular fetish.  of course the answer is yes, as long as it doesn't involve a snake (apologies to our reptile friends) or anything that's illegal or non-consensual. Everyone has to have limits, right?

 

Pretty simple so far, but what if a client needs another person to help complete the scenario she has in mind?  I don't mind helping when I can, but I'm limited by the need to stay behind the camera and take lovely pictures.  

 

If you are a follower of this blog, you know that when clients pay me for a private photoshoot, their images never appear on these pages.  So, what you are about to see wasn't a paid photoshoot, it is what I call a trade shoot.  My two friends received free photos, you get to appreciate the result and I get to promote my services.  Win, win, win!

 

The female model is a 30-something single mom who has minimal experience with bondage, but does have a burning desire to experience as much as she can.  She doesn't have a partner, but was fortunate to run into my friend at a fetish party in a large city.  

 

 

 

My male friend who has the great rope bondage skills loves to tie up willing ladies and is available to do so again if you are interested. He is very safety conscious and highly trained.  There are various terms for people who have these skills - I like to call them "riggers."    

 

 

 

If you are curious about bondage, perhaps a big fan of Fifty Shades of Gray, but don't have someone to tie you up, you do have the option of scheduling a rope bondage photoshoot with Beyond Boudoir Photo.  What you do with the photos is entirely up to you!  A lot of my work seems to turn up on a site called FetLife.com.

 

 

The rope used in these photos was made by an artisan in the Seattle area.  The use of custom made, natural fiber, rope is now a big thing in the world of rope bondage.

 

The person being tied is often called a "rope bottom" or "rope bunny."  You will also notice that the rigger is using some lengths of bamboo.  These help keep the rope bottom in a particular position and it allows the rigger to apply various kinds of leverage.   In this case he is twisting a rope that goes between her legs which applies a pleasant pressure to a sensitive area.

 

 

Most of the techniques currently in use are borrowed or adapted from Japanese practices that date back hundreds of years.   You can look up kinbaku here to learn more.

 

 

 

 

Rope bondage play does not have to be sexual at all, but in this case our intrepid performers wished to explore some of the erotic aspects of the art.

 

 

 

 

Some riggers are purists and never mix rope bondage with other forms of bondage.  However, my friend wanted to try out his new toy which was a beautifully made wood device something like stocks.   Our model certainly liked it!

 

 

 

 

One of the reasons people like to get tied up is that it puts them in a mildly altered state of consciousness.  One current popular term for this is being "rope stoned."   Some say it's caused by the release of endorphins.  It certainly makes people relax, often their eyes will roll back and their mouth will go slack.   That's great for them, but as a photographer, I wonder if that looks attractive in the photos.   What I do is ask the model/client if she wants images that show her looking rope stoned.

 

 

 

 

Careful hair pulling is another way to create an altered state of mind.  

 

 

 

 

Lots of people combine SM play with bondage.  In this case, that wasn't the plan, but we decided to use a pretty (and expensive) whip as a prop.   It's called a "Tomcat" and it is a very sensual toy.  In these photos the rigger is just dragging it across her skin.

 

 

 

 

An important goal for me is to show the "bottom" enjoying the fetish activities.  Since Fifty Shades of Gray became popular, there is a lot of interest, but there is also a lot of misinformation out there.

Technical notes:  The entire shoot was done with a Canon 5D3 and an EF 24-105 F/4 lens.  Lighting was provided by three Alien Bees monolights with various modifiers.   The first photo was slightly retouched - all the others are unretouched.
