Seether & Tobi Of Shadowplayimaging – Serious Bondage

I was asked by Faith to write a little about myself and my work, but I would first like to thank her for inviting me into her blog. I have known Faith for just over a year now, and it is a honor to consider her a colleague. It is also a pleasure to call her my friend.

I have been into bondage for as long as I can recall, back to the age of about 5. However, I have only been doing bondage photos and videos professionally for about the last 15 years. To me, there is nothing more beautiful than a bound and gagged woman who is helpless to resist the touch of a master’s hand. I prefer rope bondage and ball gags personally, but I have crafted bondage imagery in just about every imaginable style. I have always tried to model my productions after the classic styles of John Willie and Irving Klaw, mostly because there is a degree of sophistication and class to the material they both created. I am not a fan of “bondage PORN”, since it leaves nothing to the imagination.

I began my career as a photographer and bondage master on the east coast of the US in 1997, and moved my business to the Pacific Northwest in 1999. Bondage photography became my singular source of income in 2001, when I quit my day job in order to bind and gag pretty girls for a living.

My work is designed to be an expression of the sexual power of the bound female and to demonstrate various erotic bondage techniques used by lovers to intensify their physical and spiritual closeness. In my work, the female subject is tightly restrained and gagged – of her own free will. As a willing submissive participant, she becomes even more beautiful to viewers as the bound, yet protected focal point of their personal desire. To me, the eroticism of bondage comes NOT from victimizing anyone – but instead from their willing participation in the play between dominant and willing submissive.

That is my personal style in a nut-shell. My professional presence as a producer, photographer, and creative consultant to other producers is somewhat wide spread and well known within the bondage community. My bondage images are legally featured on over 100 sites worldwide, and continue to set the standard for much of the industry. There was a time when SPI was the most copied site and style in the bondage industry. At SPI, we pride ourselves in being innovators. My lead model, wife, and associate producer (the model Tobi) and I have always strives to be one step ahead of the rest of the pack. We worked very hard to create bondage stylings that were unique and visually appealing.

My singular claim to fame is my ability to seek out, recruit, and photograph beautiful young unknown women in tight “fantasy oriented” bondage situations. Whereas many of my “SPI-Girls” had never modeled before being bound for the first time by me, several have gone on to become quite well known after “learning the ropes” at SPI. The models I have had the pleasure to work with are a special source of pride to me personally. I maintain close contact with many of them to this day.

Where I provide my models with much of the credit for my success, I would be remiss if I did not also include Bill Majors, owner and founder of B&D Pleasures, in my success story. I am certain that without Bill Majors’ support and guidance, I would never have achieved as much as I did. I would also be lost without the guidance of my webmaster, TC. He is a leader in the business, and he is a very good friend. I am lucky to know such fine people.

Of the models I have worked with, my favorite to work with is my wife, Tobi. The reasons for this are plain to see in the photos I have taken of her. She is the consummate submissive, and she is my heart’s true desire. We have been together for 13 years now. I have developed many long lasting friendships with my other models, but Tobi is number one. She is the best, without a doubt.

My work has won many awards, etc, etc, etc… However, my greatest accomplishment is that my work has withstood the test of time. My models are versatile and ageless, and my rope-work is perfectly suited to all tastes. The idea that Tobi and the rest of the girls keep people coming back time and again is far more enjoyable to me than a simple singular award. It is good to be known and followed by people who were not even in elementary school when I took my first bondage photo.

I have retired from this business twice in my career – once in 2007 because of a lack of shoot funding; and the second time in 2012, because it is too hard to make a living doing this work these days. The economy continues to take a toll on our business, and that has forced me into a seemingly unrecoverable financial position. However, my work is still all over the web for all to enjoy. I imagine that will always be true, and I like the idea of bondage pervs yet to be born will want to see my work long after I am dead.

Having started my business with one site that offered 50 photos to members in 1998, and with so many other sites idle with fear from federal prosecution for failing to conduct themselves as a professional enterprise, I feel that SPI’s growth over the years to be quite an accomplishment. SPI stands steadfast as a landmark in a vast sea of sites, proudly founded on hard work, sacrifice, innovation, and beautiful exclusive models.

I have always taken great pride in bringing the girls next door to your computer and TV screen – strictly bound and thoroughly gagged – for your bondage entertainment and viewing pleasure.

As long as I am alive, SPI will always be the place where “Helplessly Bound and Gagged Young Girls Struggle and Moan Through Packed and Ballgagged Mouths!”

Thanks again to Faith Taylor for allowing me to share in a small piece of her quickly growing world.
