On the my way to the Midlands Tour, I popped over to Liverpool (Friday 29 January 2010) to shoot with Barry Thornton at his home where he kindly put me up before me catching my train to Birmingham next morning. Baz, as he calls himself, found me through Net Model and had a keen interest in bondage. I already heard of some of the models with whom he had previously worked so I knew I was safe. We've also spoken on the phone a number of times before the day of the shoot. Besides, Baz is one of the most gentlest and kindest tog I've worked with!
He picked me up at Liverpool station and drove me to his house, stopping on the way to pick up some sandwiches. We had a long chat about our shoot and his experiences as a fetish-bondage photographer. He's worked with a number of Asian/Oriental models as well one of them being a famous pornstar in Belgium! As a warm up, we began shooting some lingerie shots on the stairs with me in red bra & panties and a pair of really cool perplex platforms I borrowed from his kit. Then I eventually stripped off and we did some nude shots. Baz made me feel at ease despite the theme of the shoot, and I was happy to go with the flow...
The piece-de-resistance was getting chained and tied up on the bed. First it was be getting my ankles and wrists tied together which was great for stretching my back! Then he released me and I had my hands and feet "suspended" from some chains dangling from the ceiling. To add some flavour, I laid down on the duvet cover featuring "Chinese" characters which I thought really enhanced the "Japanese S&M" mood. He suggested nipple clamps which I tried but screamed cuz they were very painful. I'm very sqeamish! Nevertheless, I was to look distressed whilst getting tied on the ankes and wrist and wearing a collar. It was a rather interesting experience, even mild compared to some of the stuff his other girls were up to!
In warmer months, Baz shoots in his downstairs "dungeon" which in terms of scenery would be quite effective in a shoot like this. The present weather unfortunately is not suitable for this as it gets even flooded when raining! We are both interested in doing this perhaps in the spring/summer months, especially when I suggested we do some fetish stuff outdoors. I really enjoyed this shoot and look forward to working with Barry again! Thank you so much!!
