Home Studio

2016. Always wanting to combine elements of kabuki theatre and kinbaku together, I decided that I would finally try my hand at such artistic combination.  After securing a model, hair stylist, makeup artist, and a spotter, a schedule was set to shoot several different poses and shibari at my home studio during an evening.  The evening was very long but well worth the time everyone invested as many wonderful images were created.

PROFESSIONAL STUDIO

2015. A 3 piece companion set comprising a single work of art. The shoot occurred in a professional studio in downtown los angeles upon matte white backdrop. This particular image incorporated Semenawa and Bo Shibari techniques upon the model who remained in a compromising position for a period of time. Utilizing photoshop and lightroom, the image was deliberately manipulated for printing the piece using a specific giclée process.

Professional Studio

2015. A portraiture session with light shibari elements was requested and a professional studio was booked. Many wonderful images were created within the one hour timeframe we worked together. I felt as if this pose in particular struck a chord with how the model reacted to such a simple tie when coupled with additional sensory deprivation of the eyes. restricting her eyesight caused a slight contour in her bodily reactions to my commands.

ON Location

2014. A friend of mine was moving out of her place and I agreed to help her move in exchange for being able to use the location for a photography project I was sitting on for some time. I wanted to capture imagery of violation while incorporating a light rope element (rope collar). This shoot actually produced a lot of great images even though I was having trouble syncing my flashes. Working with the model was a true pleasure.
