WOW. We met thru a model/photographer networking website and talked a bit. Have to say I was really impressed with her from the get go…I booked a shoot with her without even thinking twice. Our conversations there were enough to let me know I was dealing with a total professional.
She didn’t disappoint. Soon as she arrived, we set about working…she and I seem to do this a lot. I like her sense of style so much that I usually wind up shooting her in whatever she’s wearing when she arrives…
That’s the first set that went up of her…practically the first shot I took of her…lol. I met her during my “pink rope days” (I was using colored ropes, and less stringent bondage back then), and we had a LOT of fun and had a great shoot! She was a little quiet (trust was being built up and such), but I was totally impressed with her, and we shot some fantastic stuff…
Green Rope. Feh. Pantera Noelle in Bondage
I’m a sucker for gorgeous brunettes with cute feet…lol. I might as well mention that I have a “minor” in foot fetish (I describe my fetishes in the way most describe their education…a Major in “Bondage”, and a minor in “foot fetish”…lol), and Pantera definitely has one of the cutest pair out there. She’s a total package tho…one very cute and sexy lady.
Anyhow…our first shoot went well. we had some fun and really lensed out some really great stuff. I was thankful to know her and chomping at the bit for our next shoot. In the meantime, she was shooting with another photographer and told him about me…one of the greatest favors that anyone’s ever done for me.
She was also a regular featured model with Dave Annis. Saying that means something, as the man is one of the tightest (if not the tightest) ropeworkers out there…so that definitely reflects on her…she can take some heavy binding. Anyway…she and Dave had a shoot on my birthday (which was about a month after my first shoot with her), and she told him about me…he called me, and the rest, as they say, is history. This meeting caused a revolution in how I do what I do…the pink rope is all but gone, I’m using true lighting now instead fo flash photography, and I’m tying the models tighter than I EVER thought I would or could. It’s still me doing the work, but compare the above pics to this one…
LOOKIT all that ROPE!! Pantera Noelle in Bondage
SHEESH!! HEAVY Rope Bondage on Pantera Noelle
Yuppers, quite a change, no? And definitely one for the better…I’m having more fun than I could’ve imagined, and the quality of both the rigging and the look of the photos and video has increased hundredfold. And I owe it all to this very lovely lady…if I haven’t said it lately, Pantera…THANK YOU!!!
The three of us (Pantera, Dave and I) have become very close friends…you know you’re in good friendship with someone if you wind up together at a Denny’s at 3 in the morning…lol. We’ve “bonded” (OUCH!! BAD pun!!) as photographer and model…she’s not just a model to me; I consider her a close friend as well.
Me and Pantera Noelle, mid-tie
