I wrote a previous article about the first shooting of Eve : one photo series only and she was playing the dominant friend … let’s talk about the first real bondage session she had to manage. For the little story, Eve was a vanilla girl but she was also claustrophobic : no need to say she wasn’t comfortable with the idea of being bound. That’s why I took the time to go slowly with she : we did two or three sessions playing with bondage tape or easy restraint before to try ropes. That day, Eve came at home : she was alone, I mean, she wasn’t modeling with another girl like during the previous shootings and she had to be the captive girl :)
Dana was there to help : that’s interesting to see how you can relax your model with another woman in the room. I like to work like this because she’s not obsessed by the idea you could abuse her. Eve was mentally prepared to be bound with nylon ropes : we talked about it and the session has been scheduled as usual. Anyway, she was totally in stress and I had to manage her fear. Eve was afraid to lose the control and that’s not easy to fight a phobia. Because the previous sessions using bondage tape have been safe, Eve accepted to try ropes and I tried to do something playful for her.
Eve was looking nice dressed with these clothes made of PVC : we do some pin-up shots before to bind her body. I did something cool for my model and she liked it … enough to accept something more strict for the second position. Forget about the simple immobilization on the floor, let’s play real with tight elbows in the back. Usually, this kind of restraint is a little bit (or simply) painful to the girl but Eve was very flexible. Like most of the best bondage models I met, Eve was a dancer when she was younger … dance is the school of pain and discipline : every woman who trained her body is able to be a perfect partner for bondage.
That’s why Eve enjoyed the session even if some ties or positions have been strict. And that’s how her fear slowly vanished shooting more and more photo series for Captive Culture. That day, we got the chance to let her explore the unique feeling of rope bondage associated to a nice ball-gag : it was a lot for the first time but she enjoyed it as you can see on the last picture. I always liked her lovely face … don’t you ?

nice day for nylon ropes !
2003, May 21 : I was beginning to do something interesting with my ropes, after I lost a lot of time working with the bad ones bought in France, the nylon ropes made in USA were great to build better ropeworks. Of course, that wasn’t perfect, only average but it was giving me the opportunity to try others positions with my models. At this time, Dana was my favorite captive and she was used to do more than the others girls. That day, we planned a glamour bondage session for a french magazine : nylon stockings, fine lingerie and several hours of fun … we started on the floor before Dana was forced to kneel for a long time. I remember we used a blindfold for the cover and Dana was looking gorgeous trapped in my nylon ropes. You can see above the third position, a nice ropework under the beam I use for suspension : Dana was tied and totally free to move, fighting the high heels shoes like Bianca before her. We even did another position after this one … Dana wasn’t tired, she was even excited by the challenge. Every ropework was strict but playful … in this case, that’s easy to forget the pain and get pleasure from the situation. In the end, Dana was gagged using a nice ball : the editor got some very nice pics for the magazine and my members appreciated the session like we enjoyed it. It wasn’t easy to choose one image to post, I tried to find a different one from the preview picture posted ten years ago in the guest area of Captive Culture. I hope you’ll like it :)

nice day to try the ponygirl gag !
2003, May 18 : AnnLiz is one of these models I shot only few times. She is a very nice person but I was used to shoot small and thin girls only. My collection of clothes was a little bit undersized for her big boobs but we found a nice underbust corset made of purple latex for her first shooting. She was looking nice wearing this fetish outfit for a session focused on the kinky toys we all love. After getting dressed in latex, with stockings and high heel shoes, AnnLiz started to play with the content of several boxes. I like to watch a girl putting clothespins on her nipples … AnnLiz got a nice feeling about it then she tried the next step : the japanese metal clamps. She got strong enough to manage the pain and the first part of our photo series has been focused on nipple play. She even tested the pumping device I only use with the kinky girls who are involved into BDSM games. After this nice starter, AnnLiz discovered the restraint of a ponygirl gag … looking great on her lovely face. I know AnnLiz for years and she got different style of haircut … this black & short one was nice and I must say the picture I decided to share today is pretty interesting. I ever wanted to shoot ponygirl sessions and I never got the chance to do it properly. I need to find some passionate people having their own equipment … Anaïs was very excited about the idea and I know my slave Faustine also dreams about being a ponygirl. So, I should work on it seriously. The second part of our session with AnnLiz was more classical : rope bondage and hogtie position. It was a nice way to shoot this french woman for the first time … 10 years ago. Thanks to her for the good time :)
after several articles dedicated to the first session of several models, here is the one about the beginning of a long collaboration with Dana … she did more than 100 shootings for me and she brought a lot of things to Captive Culture. Dana was 25 years old when I met her around a cup of coffee : she was a nice woman having a break from her job, she wanted to explore her passion for acting and modeled only two times for a pin-up photographer. Dana was curious about my universe and quickly talked about her wish to be bound : like lot of girls of her generation, she was nicely kinky and attracted by the beauty of rope bondage.
We got a very nice contact and I knew we would do serious things together. Dana didn’t want to work for money only, she wanted to have fun and I guessed the bondage stuff would please her body & mind. After our meeting, I got my friend Michael on the phone and I told him Dana was looking great : I knew she would be perfect to reach a new step in the adventure, she had the good profile : slim body and nice face like most of my models but she had something more, she was open-minded and ready to work hard for the project. Dana was motivated and that’s an essential thing … of course, Dana wasn’t experienced but I was sure she would learn very fast.
I scheduled the first session at my photo studio : we finished it several weeks before and that was nice to welcome Dana in this new place. We started with something simple : a nice lingerie set and some bondage tape. After a while, Dana was bound : elbows in the back, knees and feet wrapped in a tight way. I wasn’t a good rigger enough to start with ropes … it was a good way to make her experience the feeling of restraint. Dana has never been bound before and I had to be careful if I wanted to keep this girl motivated. I quickly noticed Dana liked the situation and we did a lot of nice pics during this first photo series.
After this one, we did another set but I wasn’t satisfied about the result … it was too short, then, Dana came another day to shoot more with the same outfit and make-up. Finally, my members discovered Dana through a mix of 3 sets and they loved it. Dana quickly became popular and she was the star of Captive Culture for several years … we were in 2002, almost three years before I started to work with Mina & Anaïs. Nowadays, some people don’t know Dana very well because she arrived in the early years. Imagine the blog has been created after she stopped modeling … and that’s true we did a lot of average sessions because of my skills. But in my mind, Dana is still ranked high because she gave a lot, helping me to increase my ropes skills and lived a lot of unique moments. I never imagined this first photo series would be the beginning of a story full of memories : bondage, mummification, suspension, domination, spanking, ropes in the water, latex enclosure, slave training, vacuum bed … more than a model, Dana Carlier became my assistant and helped to train new girls who were happy to follow the way she opened. Dana has been the first professional for bondage modeling on the french scene : her work inspired lot of models who were not scary anymore about the things we love. As I often say, I started the Captive Culture adventure in a country where BDSM wasn’t popular at all, the sessions we did for three years helped to change the perception of this universe … so, thank you Dana !
