A lot of models simply don’t shoot nudes for free. Some don’t shoot bondage for free. I’m not one of those models- I rarely shoot nudes for free, and I almost never, ever shoot bondage/fetish content for free.
Sometimes people will take the fact that models won’t shoot certain content unless they’re paid as a sign of poor morals- that they consider themselves above doing nudes/bondage/fetish/toys/whatever until someone offers them some cash- in which case, it’s all good.
I think this is a very puritanical and judgemental take- and, often, just plain incorrect.
Most of the time, models refuse to do certain things unless they’re paid because they’re businesswomen(or men) who understand the concept of supply and demand. I charge more for bondage photography than fine art nudes not because I find doing bondage modeling more unethical on some level than art nudes, but because finding a model who will do bondage- particularly nude bondage- is harder than finding a model who will do art nudes.
I charge more because I can. So shoot me. Just remember to pay me, too.
