Who is “Us”?
The “us” refers both to me and to my partner, Bound Light — an experienced rope bottom, rope model, and practicing rope top. We have been working together in rope, photography, and education since 2013, and we believe our perspectives — from both sides of the rope and of the lens — combine to offer a more complete and helpful learning experience.
Free Sharing and Learning!
If we’re out at educational events (for rope or photography), please feel free to approach us with questions or topics to discuss. We are always happy to share with and learn from others. There’s always more to learn, and we recognize that we’re just as likely to learn from you as you from us. You can often find us at events for RVA Rope or other group rope and photo events.
Rope Study Course & Workshops
We run Rope Study, which is primarily a series of in-person courses and workshops. However, we’ve also put together a few online resources that can help people learn about rope bondage when they’re just starting out. We offer our in-person classes in the fall and spring, along with a few workshops throughout the year, that can help people further their rope education. Please visit the website or contact us for more details.
We also offer private lessons in both rope bondage art and photography. We will meet for individual sessions to help you address a specific challenge or learn a specific concept or tie. However, we much prefer to meet with you over an extended period of time to help you progress from wherever your current skill-level is towards whatever goals you have set for yourself. We offer discounted rates for those who commit to extended study. You can learn more and book time with us through the Private Instruction page on the Rope Study website.
Workshops for Organizations & Events
We are also available to conduct workshops in both rope bondage art and photography. We have a number of prepared workshops available, but we may also be able to prepare a workshop to meet any specific needs your local community or event may have. Some of our prepared workshop topics include: Tying Well, Not Patterns; Foundations for Bottoms; Negotiating for Rope; Rope Safety for DMs; Suspension Lines 101; Learning to Self-Tie; Kink-and-Shoot; Tips for Both Sides of the Lens in Rope Photography, and more.
