Florida Road Trip In 35mm

Last month I did a mini Florida road trip and I shot a bunch of rolls of film and I figured it was a good idea to post a bunch of the shots from the trip. I used to post all my 35mm stuff on Tumblr but since they changed their NSFW settings so that you have to be logged into Tumblr to view my photos I abandoned my Tumblr. I post some 35mm stuff on Twitter but honestly it looks like shit with their compression so I don’t post much.

So about the trip… I had to be in Miami for a Miami Dolphins event. My fan club/ non profit Dolfans NYC was up for some awards at a thing called Web Weekend that the Dolphins throw every year and we make a big donation to the Miami Dolphins Foundation at the same time. We ended up winning Best Community Oriented Site and Best Use Of Social Media and donated $7000 to the MDF and another $1000 to RISE. If I ever have to get a real job maybe this will look good on a resume?

Anyway, since I had to be in Florida anyway I thought it would be a perfect excuse to visit the Sausage Castle, this weird compound near Orlando run by Mike Busey. I met Mike at the Gathering of the Juggalos years ago and he had given me an open invite to visit the castle. Tragically it burned down but they ended up moving to a way better space and now have this mansion with like a hundred acres of land and all this bat shit crazy stuff like a tattoo studio, batting cage and a female pig named Richard Porkins. Mike also told me they might get a giraffe.

Now I could have flown into Orlando and then just taken a train down to Miami but I knew that this girl Magdalene lived not too far from Tampa so I hit her up about doing a little road trip. She seemed like she was down to do a whole week of Florida madness but it ended up just being two days because she is in college and had to do actual things. Still, I decided to fly into Tampa.

I ended up getting a hotel in Clearwater, FL because I am kinda obsessed with Scientology and their headquarters is in Clearwater and I wanted to check it out. The night before we left for our road trip Magda met me at my weird aqua colored motel and we did a photoshoot there before heading over to the Scientology HQ. Unfortunately there was way too much security to shoot some nudes in front of it but at least I got to lurk. After that we got some food and waited for a movie theater to close. Wait, what?

When I posted on Instagram that I was in Clearwater I had a fan reach out to me and offer her movie theater as a shoot location! Seriously. I thought it was going to be a tiny indie theater but it was this massive multiplex. I am not gonna mention the girl’s name or where exactly the theater is just incase she gets in trouble with her new owners, but let’s just she is my hero. We did a quick shoot there but we had to be up super early the next AM so I Ubered back to my hotel and slept for a few hours until Magda picked me up again.

We had this whole plan of shooting on the way to the Sausage Castle but unfortunately it was raining nearly the whole drive. Luckily it let up right about the time we got to the Castle and because it’s Florida immediately got super sunny and gave me incredibly harsh lighting for my photos. Whatever.

The Castle itself was fucking incredible. I talked about it already, but I can’t even explain how insane it is. I only got a few hours there before we went to Universal Studios for their Halloween haunted house madness so I really didn’t get to shoot enough. Mike set up a few shots of him and the Busey Beauties and I did a mini shoot with Kris Kannibal and Sir Richard Porkins the pig. It was cool but honestly I want to spend like a week at the Castle just documenting the weirdness that goes on behind the scenes. I just need to find a client to pay me to do it. It really is fucking nuts.

So right as the sun went down we jumped in a few cars and drove to Universal. They have a ton of haunted houses set up and everyone wanted to go. I kinda hate haunted houses because they aren’t scary and I don’t like being startled but Mike bought my ticket so I wasn’t gonna complain. It seemed like a good chance to get more candid stuff of everyone anyway.

At Universal we met up with WWE wrestler Mojo Rawly and a bunch of his friends for some reason. He is sponsored by Zubaz which is fucking amazing, I own multiple pairs vintage of Miami Dolphins Zubaz so that’s pretty much all I wanted to talk to him about. (Although later I found out we both grew up in the same town and went to the same high school as my first girlfriend and a ton of my good friends.) He had a big crew so we were rolling like 20 people deep through haunted house after haunted house.

Universal closed at like 1am or something like that and it took forever to assemble everyone, get food and get back to the Castle. By the time we made it pretty much everyone was passed out. Unfortunately the keys to Magda’s car were missing (we found them the next day fortunately) and all of my shit was in the car. By the time I realized that her trunk was unlocked it was like 4am and I had to get to the train early the next morning so I ended up sleeping like 3 hours in a bunk bed in a closet (seriously, they have 6 bunk beds for guests built into walk in closet). So unfortunately I didn’t get to shoot any crazy partying or any of the weird giant playground they have on the property.

I took a train to Del Ray, FL where my Dolfans NYC partner lives with her husband Alex. Two of my friends also happen to live close by so I thought I would get to see them but unfortunately one was in Tampa and the other one just straight up blew me off so aside from dinner with Michelle and fam I just hung out in the hotel room. Whatever. The next day Michelle picked me up and we headed to Miami for our Miami Dolphins weekend.

This post is already too long and I know you don’t care about the Dolphins so I will just let you look at the pictures now. I should mention that aside from the normal point and shoot 35mm film I shot there’s also a roll of black and white I shot on my Leica and a roll of 1600 film that expired in the 90’s. That stuff didn’t come out great but it’s still kinda interesting to look at.

And lastly, there’s a gallery of about 30 digital images from the Sausage Castle that I uploaded exclusively to Girls of Driven By Boredom. You can see those and a billion other exclusive high resolution images for like $18 a year or whatever the fuck it costs. Help me pay off my credit card. Now go look at photos already…

2017 Exxxotica New Jersey

This weekend was the 10th annual New Jersey Exxxotica. I actually went to the very first one back when it was supposed to be Exxxotica New York but it got moved at the last moment. I met Stoya there who has let me crash with her at a couple Exxxoticas and was the inspiration for my Dinner With Igor book (and she signed some copies of my new book if you want one). The first one was really one of my first introductions to the adult industry aside from shooting Burning Angel parties. It’s cool to see where it’s gone in 10 years.

Also a big difference is that this time I was actually working for Exxxotica. My buddy Steve Prue is their main shooter and he wanted to do some portraits last year so they had me shoot for a few hours last year while he was doing that. I guess they dug my stuff because this year they brought me back to be a second shooter on Friday and Saturday. I had to be back in NYC to watch the Dolphins lose last night so I missed Sunday but I am sure it was a good time.

Usually when I cover a convention I am turning in 50 photos for a gallery on a website somewhere so I can hang out and fuck around and bang out a gallery in a couple hours. Shooting for Exxxotica I was pretty much going non stop and took a million photos which I edited down into a gallery of nearly 400! Fortunately for me my girlfriend Gia Paige was signing autographs all weekend so I got to hang out with her every couple of laps around the convention. Not the worst thing ever.

Not sure what else to mention (Ton Loc was there?!) but there’s a massive gallery for you to look through. If you want more info on some of my favorite pictures I did a pretty long Twitter thread yesterday. I also uploaded all the pictures to Girls of Driven By Boredom in high res and the gallery is way easier to navigate if you want to look through them all quickly. Really I just want to sell you stuff.

Speaking of selling you stuff, I got a bunch of girls to sign the mini edition of Instaxxx while I was walking around the convention. I got 5 copies signed by Gia, Abella Danger, Jojo Kiss, Charlotte Sartre, Jillian Janson, Joanna Angel, and Bobbi Dylan. I haven’t put em up for sale but I think I am gonna charge like $100 so if you want one email me now at igor@drivenbyboredom.com and we can work something out before they go up. And speaking of selling you stuff and Charlotte Sartre, a guy showed up wearing this shirt I made and had her sign it. I thought that was pretty great.

Okay, that’s enough of this. Gia is here and I gotta hang out with her instead of my computer. Go look at all these damn photos and congrats to Exxxotica on 10 years. Hope you guys have me back for a bunch more.

More Arya Fae

So a few months ago I posted a bunch of photos of Arya Fae. They were pretty great because Arya is pretty great, but we spent like 12 hours hanging out that day and we took so many photos that I had to break them up a little bit.

The first part of the shoot was outside of her apartment. That’s the stuff I already posted on here. Then later that night we shot some photos with Jojo Kiss and my friend Alondra and Arya’s friend Charlotte. Those photos were mostly for my Instaxxx book, but I shot some digital stuff too and I put that stuff on Girls of Driven By Boredom so that the people who pay my rent have something just for them.

Now in between the stuff we shot outside and the stuff we shot at Jojo’s place we took a bunch of photos inside of her apartment. That’s what you are getting in this update. Hopefully this isn’t too complicated but I’ve had a lot of coffee so who knows.

So these photos are real fucking sexy and you will like them. The only problem is that all of them were naked because this was supposed to be part of the outside stuff. I mean, that’s not really a problem but I don’t really have much to preview the set with below. I think it’s gonna be okay.

Anyway, since this shoot I went and visited Arya again. The light in her new place sucked so we tried to go outside again. Unfortunately there were tons of people around so aside from her flashing me a few times we didn’t get much fun stuff. We tried shooting inside but it was honestly too dark so I didn’t get anything I was happy with technically. That being said, there were some sexy photos so I decided the second set would be exclusively for Girls of Driven By Boredom. That way you creeps can look at it without it making me look like a bad photographer publically. There’s also some more exclusive stuff from inside her house from the first shoot.

TL:DR: There are a bunch of hot photos of Arya that you can look at for free here, but there are a ton more that are only available on Girls of Driven By Boredom.

Okay, now click here to look at all the free photos of the outstanding Arya Fae!

Insane Clown Posse In Brooklyn – 10.23.17

Not sure if I have mentioned this yet, but my next book is going to be photos of juggalos. I have been talking about it forever but I think it’s finally time to do it. It’s not going to happen right away or anything, my living room is still filled with boxes of books, zines and shipping supplies from my last book, but it’s going to happen sooner or later. So when I saw that the Insane Clown Posse was playing walking distance from my apartment in Brooklyn clearly I had to go.

To be honest the show was exactly what you would expect an ICP show in Bushwick to look like. It was a bunch of juggalos being gawked at by a bunch of hipsters playing juggalos for halloween. My favorite game is trying to figure out who the actual juggalos were vs. the hipsters pretending to be juggalos and usually I am pretty good at that game as one of the handful of people on earth who is both an aging hipster and down with the clown. Amazingly enough a bunch of the people I thought were fake juggalos knew a bunch of lyrics. I wonder if they listened to em when they were kids or if maybe ICP has been hated long enough that people are ironically listening to them earnestly. Or is it earnestly listening to them ironically? I am not sure either makes sense but you are going to have to deal with that.

2017 is the 20th anniversary of the album The Great Milenko. It’s the album that put ICP on the map when Hollywood Records pulled it after just a few days on the shelves. Hollywood was owned by Disney and worried parents threatened a Disney boycott over the record. Remember when parents used to worry about lyrics before you could ask Siri to see prolapse porn? (Don’t do that.) I remember Kurt Loder talking about the album on MTV News and my punk friends would be rapping the lyrics on the Metro (that’s what they call the Subway in DC for whatever reason). I ended up getting the record and a bunch of us painted our faces and went to see the Milenko tour at the 9:30 Club in DC. Somewhere there is a picture of a bunch of mohawk sporting punk kids in clown make up in my parents suburban VA driveway and to be honest I would pay a lot of money to find that photo.

By the time I went to college I had stopped listening to ICP but 20 years later somehow my life has come back to this, one of the foremost experts of juggalo anthropology, surrounded by music bloggers, everyone who has ever worked for VICE, and three different girls I met on dating apps, singing my lungs out to every word of Great Milenko.

Other things of note… RA The Rugged Man opened for them and he is really good at rapping. I got hit in the face with a full bottle of Faygo which fucking hurts. I actually was knocked unconscious by one once. I didn’t take any photos of ICP because I actually wanted to enjoy the show and this book is about juggalos, not the band. This is not the first time I have seen ICP play an album back to front. Shout out to Ouija Macc from Swag Toof for putting my bag back stage during ICP’s set. I think he opened the show. He was the first person I saw at least. It’s possible Surfbort opened because they were on the bill and were giving people clown make up during the show. I actually really want to see them now because googled them about 10 minutes ago and I’ve been listening to them since. I’ve listened to their 7″ twice now and aside from the infinitely too long Hideaway with the Pixies outro it’s pretty much exactly what I want to be listening to.

I’ve rambled enough and these photos are a day late because my server was down yesterday. Time to look at juggalo hipsters.

2017 #MetLifeTakeover Video

I am gonna make this post super short because I know most of you don’t care and I just posted an update about the #MetLifeTakeover event I throw every year. You can read about it over there if you want to know more but I know most of you could care less about my obsessive Miami Dolphins fandom.

I will just say that I am really proud of this video we made and this event we throw every year. This season already our non profit group Dolfans NYC has donated over $13,000 to charity and we plan to hit $15,000 at a minimum by the end of the year.

And a real quick description. This video is the recap of our #MetLifeTakeover event where we bought over 1100 seats for the Dolphins Vs. Jets game in New Jersey. We had a bunch of former Dolphins show up to the huge tailgate party we threw and most of them did interviews with us for the video. It’s hosted by comedian and Dolphins fan Oscar Collazos and it was directed by RizeOptix. Also have to give out a shout to Sailor Jerry for sponsoring the event like they do every year.

Lastly, the Dolphins got killed at the game in Jersey so the video kinda ends on a down note, but we beat them yesterday in Miami so it seems like an ideal time to post this. Enjoy.

Gia Paige

Earlier this year Gia Paige followed me on Twitter.  I lurked her Twitter and saw that she was a babe and had a ton of followers so I figured I would follow her back. We might have Tweeted back and forth a few times but I didn’t really think anything of it until I was in LA for my Instaxxx book release party. (Buy my book!) I was on Twitter looking for someone to shoot a few days before the party and I saw that she was in LA. I hit her up on Wednesday, the party was Friday, we planned our shoot for Sunday.

On Thursday night I went to a party at the AVN offices. It seemed like the perfect excuse to promote my book party and make a little money in the process since I knew the LA Weekly would want the photos. I had been there for a while when I saw the cutest girl I had ever seen. Almost everyone there was dressed scandalously as you would imagine at a porn party but this girl was wearing a t-shirt and jeans. Her shirt said “I don’t dress up for boys”.

I took her photo and told her I liked her shirt. We talked for a second and I gave her my business card. She looked at it and screamed “You know me! I’m Gia Paige!” I have no idea how I didn’t recognize her since I was planning on shooting her in a few days, but I guess I somehow didn’t really look at her photos except for that first day when I followed her on Twitter.

I hugged her and we started talking about the shoot on Sunday and I told her about my party on Friday and she said she would come. The one thing I remembered from her Twitter was that she had a bunch of weiner dogs and we talked about them and  honestly I can’t remember much else. But at some point she scratched my beard with her nails and I just couldn’t stop thinking about it. I had known this girl for five minutes and she had me fucked up.

The next day at my party I was super stressed out like I am every time I throw a party but when Gia showed up I was really happy to see her. She brought one of her absurd dogs with her and I got to pet it for a second before I had to run off to deal with something. When I finally had a spare moment I went to look for her and I couldn’t find her anywhere. I texted her to see if she left and she said she had because it was too crowded for her dog but she would see me on Sunday. And then she sent me another text “Hey I don’t ever do this, but I just wanted to tell you that I think you are really handsome.” And that was it. It was all over for me.

After texting non stop for two days we finally met up for the shoot. She picked me up and we drove to Griffith Park. We didn’t really have a location but we figured we could just walk around until we found some place cool to take photos. She parked and before we even got out of the car we were just staring into eachother’s eyes like some sort of Disney cartoon. I barely even remember taking photos of her because all I can think about was the time we spent in the front seat of her car falling for eachother.

So anyway, we took some photos. I managed to drop my camera but it didn’t break and cut up my hand climbing up a hill but it healed. We didn’t get arrested and I feel like I have some photos you guys will want to look at so as far as photo shoots go it was as success, but meeting Gia was way better than the photos.

Since then Gia came with me to the Gathering of the Juggalos and visited me in NYC and we went to the Poconos together for a day. I went to Detroit to visit her and played with all her dogs (she has three plus she had three puppies at the time!) I was supposed to meet her in LA next week but a job fell through but hopefully I will see her soon. I don’t even know what else to say but I am sorry you had to read this sappy post but at least you get to see a bunch of photos of her naked.

Also, I should mention that because it is my ultimate goal to sell you things so I can pay my rent, I decided to take a bunch of the 35mm photos from all my adventures with Gia and post them exclusively to Girls of Driven By Boredom. There’s some real sexy stuff in there and some real adorable stuff in there and you can only see em on Girls of DBB. You can also give Gia your money too so she can afford to buy me more giant pizzas.

More Wedding Photography

I have always promised myself I would never shoot a wedding. I am not exactly sure why. Most of the working photographers I know that work full time will at least shoot a wedding from time to time to keep the lights on but it’s a dumb point of pride for me that I’ve never shot one. I mean wedding photography used to be pretty awful but now so many people shoot it documentary style and that work honestly a lot more interesting than plenty of the stuff I shoot. But whatever the case, I still have never shot one.

That being said I always have a camera at my friend’s weddings and take a least a few snapshots with my 35mm point & shoot. A few years ago two of my best friend’s got married in the same month so I did a post with a bunch of 35mm from their weddings. One of them got married an hour from Nashville so I got some stuff I liked there before I ever went to the wedding. And then when Prince Terrence got married in Vegas I got some fun shots there so I posted those as well.

So I come to you with my third 35mm wedding photography post. This time we have two weddings and a bachelor party and about 50 mediocre photos for you to look at.

First up back in August my friend OJ aka Slutlust got married to my old roommate Kara. They got married on the same city bus they met on and it was pretty fucking fantastic. OJ is a NYC nightlife icon so pretty much everyone at the wedding I had met at a bar at 3am. It was pretty wild to see everyone at 9 in the morning waiting for the M14 bus. We all got on and the bus was so packed with all of us that the bus just blew past all the stops until it reached the stop where OJ was waiting. He got on the back of the bus unfortunately so I couldn’t even get any photos of the wedding. A few stops later Kara got on and our friend Brendon James married them in the back. The bus was so packed that none of us in the front could see anything so we actually watched the wedding on Instagram live. It was pretty funny.  From there the bus took us to the Standard Hotel for the after party at Le Bain and it was kinda crazy being on the roof and seeing that club during the day. Hell of a view. I managed to get sun burned in a few hours and went home to pass out by 4pm or something.

Last month my friend Teddy got married. I used to manage his band in college and he runs the graphic design firm CHIPS. He designs all my books and his partner at CHIPS designed the logo to my website. He had a tiny wedding that was just family the night before but then he had a party at his apartment the next day. I was pretty excited about it because I had never actually met his wife which is kinda incredible given how many times I have heard about her. Her name is Molly and she seemed really rad and I need to hang out with her sooner or later but glad I got to finally meet her. The party was fun and I got to see some old friends like my college girlfriend and my fucking little brother who flew in from LA for 24 hours for the wedding and didn’t even tell me he was coming. Also you may recognize Teddy’s filmmaking partner Alex Karpovsky. They make music videos and commercials and this series where famous people talk about therapy and you should check that out because talking about mental health is important and also I took their press photo.

Oh also in this gallery are two whole photos from Teddy’s bachelor party where we went to this virtual reality arcade called VR World which was really amazing even though VR makes me kinda sick. It’s well worth checking out. I also went to OJ’s bachelor party but my camera ran out of batteries as I was taking the first photo.

Okay, I am gonna stop talking now. Time for you to flip through some 35mm snapshots from my friend’s weddings.

Meet Sabby

This is Sabby. She is great and you are probably going to like looking at photos of her. I am a big fan of her for a bunch of reasons. Let’s make a list for no reason.

  1. She lives near me.
  2. She is really attractive.
  3. She is fun to hang out with.
  4. Her photos seem to do really well on the internets.
  5. For whatever reason she likes my photos.
  6. Most of her friends seem to be hot sex workers
  7. We both are on the same app network.

So yeah, she is clearly a babe and her living in Brooklyn is super useful. Twice she’s hung out with me when I’ve needed to finish a roll of film and that makes my life way better. She’s also chill as fuck and every time I put her on my Instagram people seem to be really excited about it. Also, she keeps telling me how much she likes my photos of her. It seems really easy to take good photos of her, but I will accept the compliment enough to convince her to take more photos with me. I haven’t actually taken any photos of her hot naked friends but I feel like if I am around her enough eventually she will lead me to some more babes. This is good for everyone.

Now, I could have just written that paragraph but instead I made a list and then repeated myself below. Not sure what that’s about but sometimes you just wanna fill space so it doesn’t look like your website is nothing but photos of naked people and that one day maybe a client will hire me for something like advertizing gig that I found out I didn’t get yesterday. Whatever.

Oh, right, that app network thing. My app/ paid site, Girls of Driven By Boredom is on this network called Findrow. Sabby is also on that and you should give her money. But also give me money. There are extra photos of Sabby on Girls of DBB and I just yesterday uploaded an exclusive set of Alexis Fawx if that’s something you are into too. Just saying.

Anyway, enough rambling and promoting. Go look at some photos already.

In The Woods With Holly Beth

Hey! I am in Detroit right now but I set this post up so you guys can read it even though I am probably doing something fun with Gia Paige. I hope we are exploring an abandoned car factory or eating hot dogs that are named after a neighborhood in Brooklyn and yet are only famous in Detroit. Whatever the case I have some photos for you.

Back in March after SXSW was over I hung out with Giselle Palmer and Holly Beth and we went for an adventure into the woods. I took a ton of photos of both of them and I figured I would post the Holly Beth ones first because I already posted some photos of Giselle Palmer and the only photos I have posted of Holly were these ones in Vegas that were part of a much bigger gallery.

Holly is great and she came to NYC and we hung out a bunch and for whatever reason didn’t really take any photos. I feel like that was a regrettable choice but whenever people come to visit I tend to forget to shoot like a proper set with them unless they have some fancy hotel. I always just shoot a bunch of random 35mm stuff and forget about the rest. I feel like she should come back soon.

We also shot a bunch of non nude photos for a magazine but then I got into an argument with them and they didn’t even send me a copy of the magazine so I haven’t even seen our spread. But if you want to see the photos I put them on Girls of Driven By Boredom. Usually I put like the secret explicit stuff on there, so making the non-nude stuff exclusive seems like radical twist. Or not. Whatever, there’s a lot of photos on there for you to lurk including the full set of the stuff we shot in Vegas.

Okay, I am going to get back to whatever totally fun thing I am doing right now and you guys should go look at these photos.
