About MeI'm Gary. I'm primarily a photographer specializing in art nudes, erotic and light fetish work. I'm here seeking potential models for my work, and to network with other artists. I'm primarily interested in photogenic females, female couples, and m/f couples. As this is a serious pursuit, I am fairly selective in who I work with, with preference given to athletic and toned physiques, but curves are fun too.
In addition to photography, I also do my own light ropework, mainly decorative, that's being well-received. I semi-seriously refer to my non-standard method as ShiGari™ -- a Japanese/Midwestern Fusion, where Shibari meets Ace hardware. I often integrate rings, chains, clips and other hardware into my rope outfits, for practical and aesthetic reasons.
Currently I do NOT do full suspensions (model suspended in mid-air with rope).
Since my ropework is often done with models and other people who may be new to rope, I incorporate certain quick-release measures to quickly free the model.
While I primarily do the rope for my own photographs, I have done ties for other photographers from time to time, so this profile is making that service available to photographers, models, stylists, etc.
As a photographer, I often work with a more advanced Shibari artist, DeweyX (Indianapolis), who is available for shoots with select subjects/models. We usually refer to our collaborative efforts as GMDX. I also am fortunate to be friends with several other talented riggers who are open to collaboration, including BoydX, Cannon, Kaa, Undercover, AdmiralAkbar, BondageNexus, and others.
