Production Roles
Almost everything, but with invalueable help of my wife, especially in creating kind and friendly atmosphere so that models can relax and work at their top potential.
How did you get involved with Restrained Elegance?
I shoot bondage pictures for quite a time already, and my pictures can be found on many sites and personal collections, but until RE I worked only in "girl-next-door" style. Several photographer's education courses here in Siberia changed it all in late summer of 2008. I tried to shoot my regular models in studio environment, and the very first experiment turned to be a success, when Hywel agreed to take several sets of my best model - Delta - for RE.
Do you have a personal interest in bondage?
Yes, and very large one. To be short, I simply can't imagine my life without bondage. I'm switch in bondage.
What's your favourite RE set?
I like many sets, so I can't say that one single set is better than another in my list.
What's your favourite set you've been on the production team for?
Every set that I'm working on is my favourite - when I'm working on it. When it comes to reviewing all sets later, well, then every set is unique, because bondage for me is all about feelings... Sorry for evading your question. :)
What do you think about when you are working on bringing a set/video/picture from an idea to the finished thing?
I'm quite rarely have an idea that burns my mind and demand realization. :) Usually I look at model, her clothes, and take a rope (or a chain, or a cuffs) in my hands, and then ideas comes to my mind. The only thing left is to choose from several ideas. And I think about process, model's safety, and we chat about everything - the weather, her plans, her boyfriends, her work and/or study...
Favourite Book
I like science fiction, both Russian and international. Isaac Asimov and Arthur Clarke, for example. They have a lot of good books.
Favourite Film
Star Wars, especially original trilogy.
Favourite Food
Ice-cream. :)
Favourite TV programme
News on Russian TV.
Favourite Music
Soundtracks from favourite movies and Japan melodies.
What bit of gear wouldn't you be without?
My camera and a rope.
What equipment do you use?
For studio shoots I use Canon 400D and its kit lense. Sometimes use 50/1.8 for portraits. Sometimes I change to Sony DSC R1, it has excellent capabilities for studio work.
