STEAMPUNK/EDWARDIAN GOTHIC

PippaRework

We are not quite sure how to label this post, but whatever the title the shoot made for an intriguing style…The tiddly hat worn atop the models head is often referred to as a ‘Fascinator’…

The model had the basic Bodice and lace dress to which we added the finishing touches. Of course ladies would not have worn nylon in those days, but the model had some delightful ink to display on her legs that we wanted to show through, so transparent shiny pantyhose were the order of the day.

Also we showcased one of our favourite props here. An original Jean Paul Gaultier Rubber Umbrella with ornate handle, which is currently on sale on eBay.

We also employed a combination of studio lamps punching light into the scene and natural light as seen in the shot above, whilst partaking of afternoon tea.

We had many bluebells growing in our garden and so found it appropriate to make up a little seasonal bouquet to complement her intricate make up.

We would like to point out that it is illegal in the UK to pick bluebells in the wild…so do take heed as there is a hefty fine if you are caught doing this.

Next accoutrement was a fine ebony and alpaca silver Gentleman’s walking cane. It is worth noting that whilst an expensive item, alpaca silver forming the handle at the top of the cane does not in fact contain any real silver. It is an alloy of copper, zinc and nickel that mimics silver.

Finally, our old shed, that we kept our lawn mower and other garden equipment in, fell down as the roundels of wood supporting its corners had rotted through. The Tin Roof provided to final piece of the puzzle for a different urban backdrop…

MISTRESS SLIPHORNE

Do you ever get the feeling that you are no worthy…

Mistress SlipHorne can sense this from a thousand paces, and invites all worms to kneel at the end of her crop.

Yes that’s exactly where she wants you. Prostate in front of her, eyes down awaiting your next instruction.

Yes,…the strike of the lash can be painful, but the you will have to make sure you do not deserve it. There would be nothing worse than pulling down your trousers and pants, in front of an audience, to be admonished now would there?

Next comes the collar! A brutish collar for a wimp who know its place.

A Collar you can wear with pride, as we move on to the next phase of your training. Tie and Tease with a Feathered Implement would seem most appropriate to test your mettle.

We have worked with many Mistresses over the years to develop promo shoots that give an authentic insight into the tamer side of bdsm. If you are a Mistress who would like to partake of this service then do contact us now. Alternatively, you may be a couple who would like to dip your toes into this arena, or a female who has just started to sense her need for something more and  thinks bdsm might be just like the Advanced driving Test for all things sexual and sensual. Either way, we have the props and facilities to realise your dreams and capture something cool and interesting.

A VERY LARGE ERECTION!

Well let’s face it, that got you looking didn’t it?

Today’s post is a celebration of our local dockside heritage.

And also a hint that we can use many places as a fine backdrop to add interest and variety into the mix of how we compose our shots.

Bringing the pictures to life with a little HDR twist also brings out all the lines and textures and expresses just how much detail a digital camera is actually picking up.

The Sun is on its way, so we start to come alive and get out and be more creative.

We Love shooting outdoors and have a wealth of great places in our locality. We always have an assistant or two with us to ward of any unwanted attention, so you can assure you will be safe, but at the same time will need a little exhibitionist streak in you…so no wallflowers need apply!

DRUID GODDESS

Given the opportunity to showcase a delightful blonde model as a Druid Goddess we jumped at the chance. We knew she was a grounded individual as she works in animal welfare, and we wanted to capture something of substance and meaning.

Shimmery cape, PVC Boots and Corset and a Druid ceremonial Dagger all blended to create the look.

Then we moved on to disrobing a little and going for a classic boudoir pose.

Next, add in a pair of glasses for the perfect demure secretarial look.

Its always great to work with a model who is diverse in her approach to her kraft. A single shoot turns into a  wealth of unique content that can be put to good use in so many ways.

And this is only one look that we played with out of two shot across an afternoon. Wait for a later post where we will reveal the ‘retro femme fatale’ look with a designer hat by Zara Carpenter worth nearly two hundred pounds.

 

RED FETISH BOOTS

RedToulouseDiva, Destiny Toulouse Diva

So we were stranded in Toulouse, France and were put up in a four star hotel due to an Air Traffic Controllers strike. We were there for nearly a week. Luckily we had lots of Nylon in our suitcase and so did some awesome shoots in the hotel.

We also did a few tours of the City and took in the many Art Galleries, exhibitions and Street Art. On our journey we came across an amazing retro second hand store that was just a cornucopia of unique retro artefacts. We had a good nose around and then left, but as we turned the corner outside I saw the most amazing pair of boots in the Window. Something that Betty Page would have been proud of. That was it, I ushered my Wife inside to put her dainty size 4’s into the ultra snug real leather delights. They were a perfect fit and we had to have them.

Louise Jensen Nylon Mistress

Since then they have been used in only one other shoot, which we called ‘Nylon Mistress’ for obvious reasons. Plus we meet very few models with such small feet. Luckily, the very lovely Miss Jenson was also a perfect fit and took on the role with veritable aplomb!
