I was looking through the archives for project images to post on my FetLife profile, and came across some old JPGs from a photo shoot I did years ago. These are just a few of the many photos that were taken, that since have languished in digital limbo, never seeing any activity at all save their frozen bits taking up room on a DVD. Figured I'd share them with you rather than let them languish any longer... This is the first time they've been shown anywhere.
These photos were taken at a time when I was just getting serious about making bondage gear, and the model was one of the first people to encourage me to pursue it further. I still appreciate the nudge she gave me, saying it was good enough to sell.
The opera-length gloves she's wearing were purchased from Ines gloves, but I did make the hood and cuffs myself. It was one of my first solo shoots with a hired model. I lived and shot the pix in a second-floor apartment at the time, and it had awesome afternoon light streaming in through all the windows.
I remember building the stage and backdrop as well - just for this shoot. I don't think it was ever used again... Oh well, you learn a lot from just trying things sometimes, even if you don't know how it will all turn out.
