It’s been a long time since I’ve been in front of the camera of another photographer. In my younger and fitter days I did several shoots with other photographers and I really enjoy being a part of the creative process. Today I’m doing it again.

I don’t think I’m in the right shape for it, nor do I feel confident about it but I still enjoy the process and seeing another photographer at work is always good too.

Today I’m posing for a Sydney photographer called Sam Gatsby who is working on a side project called Kinbaku by Gatsby. Now that word Kinbaku meant nothing to me until I saw Sam’s work. In other variations on the theme it is known as Hojojutsu and Shibari which some of you may know. In other words I’m going to be tied up by Sam in a detailed network of knots. Sam does beautiful work and other models who have posed for him say he is fast, considerate and very good at what he does.

I can’t wait to see what he comes up with but being tied up is not something I’ve done before.
