Photographing the Non-Submissive Male. Personal Reflections From Miss J

Happy Thursday folks! Did you have a good Hump Day? I sure did. Mistress J has been a little naughty this week, but I won’t go into details today. That is another blog post…

Male Dom by Mistress J

A very Hitchcock inspired photo.

This week I will be discussing a very controversial subject for a FemDom studio such as mine. It might even shock you a little to hear. But believe it or not, Mistress J sometimes photographs Male Dominants! I hear the shocked gasp of readers, but it is true. After all, Mistress J is a smart and savvy business owner, so why turn away a man just because he happens to be Dom?

All of my clients, male or female, Dom or sub want the same thing, an experience. That experience depends on the client and it is my job to find out what it is they are looking for.

The Titillating Effect of Power Exchange.

One of the things I enjoy most about my work is the connection I make with a client. When I work with a submissive, it is a awesome feeling watching them unfold before me. As I have said before in many of my posts, I often see things nobody else does. Not even their spouse. That responsibility comes with power. Power titillates. It excites. Yes, I am saying it; I feel a sense of excitement during a session. That feeling is pure FemDom combining my acute artistic eye and tender compassion into an erotic session. If I could bottle that feeling and sell it, I’d be a millionaire.

Male domNow take a male Dom. He does not need to unfold. He is already there. Powerful, defiant, unabashed. He might have his submissive with him who obeys his every word. But he is there for a session, he has hired me. An interesting situation being the client who pays for what he wants, to a Mistress who dominates in photography. As accommodating as I am to my clients, Mistress J is in complete control of her studio.

The Eyes Have It.

An interesting factoid: Submissive men tend to look downward and eye contact is slow to meet. The dominant male enjoys staring at Mistress J, as if to peer into her soul and try to dominate her.  ey eye

This is Where it Gets Interesting.

I still get excited during a session with a Dom! But it is different. I know my cameras, I know lighting, I know people. With 20 years photography experience and 15 managing drunk people at weddings, it takes a LOT to shake me. But they try. I get a thrill off the stare down, the subtle forms of defiance that they might do, feeling that the shiver down my back. Sometimes it amuses me, sometimes I even get a little angry, and sometimes I even let them think I backed down a little. But I always get the shot I want and that makes me Mistress J.

Mistress J Studios is a sex positive studio that provides a safe place for personal expression. Nude male photography, male and female submission, cross dressing, gender bending, and even male Doms are welcome here.
