About the photographer:


(He, Him, His)

Maiki has been a practicing rope artist for 10 years. His eclectic back ground of juggling, circus arts education, photography, and various other physical pursuits inform both his artistic expression and instruction process with rope, in a truly unique and refreshing way.

About the available riggers:



Smitten has completed 5 levels of curriculum at Studio Friction and has been tying and teaching curriculum courses with Switchtext for the last year and a half. She also attends community classes and rope cons whenever possible. Smitten_ loves teaching and introducing new folks to rope and embraces rope for it’s unique connective qualities and unlimited creativity. 



Switchtext is a designer and a co-founder and creative director of Studio Friction. He is more interested in sensations and understanding the elements of rope bondage than mastering someone’s specific pattern. Switchtext has been tying for 14 years. He has learned so much in that time and enjoys knowing he has so much more to learn.
