The BDSM Photography Project

Let’s go back to June 2012.
Friday, June 1st to be exact. We are at the Cultural Center of my hometown. The hour is 20:30.
A municipality representative is making a speech. Princess is at my side and she is proud because it is me whom is lauded.

Sparkling wine is served. There is a crowd and lots of noise and babbling. My hand is taken and shaken a zillion times.
I smile and enjoy the moment.

We are at my photography exhibition. Landscapes and naughty macro photography as the reproductive organs of flowers look like vaginas and penises.

Having my work shown here, in the Cultural Center, in my hometown, is an old dream of mine and another item to cross out on my list.
Deep inside me I know this is my 5th and last exposition.

Don’t get me wrong. As an artist I like opening nights. Horney women whom throw themselves at my feet hoping some of my fame will rub off on them. There is of course the buzz, the money, the mentioned sleazy & hot sex and lots of free blow.

Sounds familiar? I’m happy for you as you must be much more famous than I’ll ever be.

I love making photographs and negotiating for a gig even more and it feels great reading my name in a newspaper, seeing advertising for the show. Being interviewed.
Everybody needs a few moments of your time. For 15 minutes that is.

And after opening night?
You are already forgotten because somebody new is being programmed. It is like that and that is the game and that are the rules. You play or you don’t.
I like everything about it though except loading my car and hauling with heavy frames and being stressed about the parking restrictions near the exposition room.

2015
I have about 3000 BDSM related images on my computer. I like looking at them but it is so abundant I feel I myself, as a photographer, have nothing to add to the genre.

Princess though is not convinced at all.

The Dungeon wants to expand and show fetish and BDSM related art.
And when I told Princess about it sure enough she pushed me into it.

So now Princess and I have a photography project.

I cannot play and take images at the same time though so I need another way in.

Princess has been pushing me and we made a few BDSM photographs and yes, I like them. I believe the way I/we see things is different. It is not entirely staged so it stays genuine.

There is something in it for Princess too. When she prepares, the make-up and so, she transforms into somebody else and I feel she becomes even a better submissive than when we play.

Princess adores playing a role, becoming somebody else and maybe this project will help me, us, bring us even closer to what D/s really means for her, for me.

A few days ago we got mail from The Dungeon. They liked our work a lot but we do not have enough photographs yet for an exposition.

Past Saturday we worked on an idea Princess had developed about peeing. We worked for a few hours, making about 30 shots. Princess’ input is really important. She is not spoiled by 3000 BDSM images and therefore can be model and art director. I create, make it technically possible with the little tools we have and try to add something of myself in our images.

Without any further delay Princess and I present 4 images in this post build around the peeing setup. Please tell us what you like and don’t like. One of these four will be used for the exposition.
Please be honest. Give us critique. Tell us what works, what doesn’t.

What Princess and I are presenting end 2015 or maybe 2016 will we built for a part on your input.

I am looking forward to this exposition.
It is something very private and extremely intimate.
Most of all it is something we, Princess and I, are doing together.
That is enough reason for me to engage in this adventure.

And Princess is a great model.
