Flashback/ Flash Forward To Vegas

Today I am off to Vegas to shoot the 2017 AVN Awards aka the “Oscars of Porn”. I will be there for a few days and then I am off to LA for a few more. I will be working for a few clients in Vegas but mostly I will be working on my new book Instaxxx. I shipped 80 shots of Instax Wide film to Vegas already and I am bringing a couple boxes with me. Gonna make some god damn art.

Speaking of Instaxxx the Kickstarter is going way too well and it’s kinda blowing my mind. On Saturday I shot some Instax for Nakid Magazine at Hello Beautiful Salon during the middle of the day and Nakid put them up yesterday. Not sure if anyone bought the book after they ran but this model Aneta is such a babe so they came out pretty well and that’s good enough for me.

Anyway, while I am on the west coast am going to send you guys over to the road trip blog for shorter updates while I travel, but before I do that I have a present for you guys: I found a ton of photos I shot at AVN in 2014 and never published!

I shot a behind the scenes article for a magazine I am not going to mention in 2014 and they never ran it and I totally forgot to publish the photos myself which is crazy. Luckily this trip to Vegas made me look for a photo and when I saw it wasn’t on my website I suddenly had a realization I never posted these.

So, I have uploaded a big gallery of photos featuring Raven Rockette and Kleio Valentien naked on a roof, Jessie Lee naked in the halls of the Hard Rock, the last photos I took of Kimberly Kane before we broke up on the ride home from Vegas, Claire Robbins lounging on a bed and Asphyxia Noir in the balcony seats of the Joint.

I also found an entire gallery I shot of the Suicide Sirens who aren’t together any more but they are hot and naked it’s a pretty cool set. I will post those at some point soon but for now you just get a preview below…

Also, since I shot these for an unnamed adult magazine there are a bunch of much dirtier shots from a few of these shoots that are available exclusively on Girls of Driven By Boredom!

A-Bar Opening Night – 1.13.17

Friday the 13th is the perfect night for a tattoo artist to open a bar. My friend Matty No Times and his partners launched A-Bar last night in Greenpoint. The bar looked great and it was packed all night. Too packed almost… I could barely take photos because I was too close to everyone! It was a great time and I saw a bunch of old friends (including a girl I went to homecoming with in like 1998!) but the highlight was probably when they branded a big A on the door to officially christen the place.

Now that you know about the party I am going to tell you a long pointless story about how I ended up there. Firstly I met Matty at the one year anniversary their tattoo shop Three Kings back in 2009. A year later Matty needed a liver transplant and Inked Magazine sent me to shoot his benefit. After that we started running into each other a lot more at Sailor Jerry events that we worked together but at all those Sailor Jerry events Matty never tattooed me.

Now we skip 2014 and the time that I bought a photo of Eazy E from NYC photo icon Ricky Powell. He took my photo and it ended up on Frank 151. I ended up making it my Facebook photo for a minute and that brings me to the next part of this pointless story: Buff Monster.

Buff Monster is a friend and an amazing artist and he needed some new press photos. I am a huge fan of bartering and I am kinda obsessed with Buff’s Melty Misfits. Melty Misfits are Buff’s own version of the Garbage Pail kids I (and every boy in the 80’s) collected as a kid. I told him I would shoot his press photos if he drew me as a Melty Misfit.

Buff went through my Facebook photos to find a good reference and ended up using the photo Ricky Powell shot of me for the drawing. When Buff gave the drawing to me I decided to get it tattooed on me. I asked him if there were any tattoo artists that dug his work and would want to do it and of all people he mentioned Matty.

Totally coincidentally I was in Three Kings a few days earlier and Matty told me that he needs a photographer from time to time and would be willing to trade a tattoo for photography work. I told him I was down whenever he needed me so when Buff mentioned Matty I hit him up immediately and that’s how I ended up with this sweet Matty/Ricky/Buff tattoo of myself!

So finally we come full circle and I am finally paying Matty back for that tattoo. Moral of the story is barter for everything. Money is for capitalist oppressors and people who like to eat food and have shelter. The end.

Anyway, congrats to Matty and Alex and all the other A-Bar partners on their new bar. It looks great. And keep opening more spots so I can come back and photograph them for more tattoos!

Ps. Buy my book.

Introducing My Third Book: Instaxxx

When I was 19 my girlfriend gave me a Polaroid camera and let me take naked photos of her. They were some of the first naked photos I ever took and 17 years later I am still photographing friends, lovers and of course naked models and porn stars on instant film.

I have spent the last 6 months or so working my ass off on my third book “Instaxxx” and the Kickstarter just launched.  This is probably the biggest project I have ever worked on and I hope at the end it’s the best thing I have ever put my name on.

If you have ever been a fan of anything I’ve ever done this is the best possible way to support my work. The early bird reward for the book is only $20 and there’s so many other things you can get like prints and discounts of my zines and even my actual Instax Wide camera. Even donating $5 will help.

Still looking to shoot more for it and I am gonna be working on it through February. Going out to Vegas and LA at this month to work on it as well. I have spent so much time on this book and I have so much left to do but this is the biggest step.

The video for it is pretty amazing as well. It features 20 topless babes talking about the project. My friend Ronen V helped me a ton with it so thanks to him for that and of course thanks to all the girls for helping too!

Oh, and I uploaded over 100 of the photos I have scanned so far to Girls of Driven By Boredom if you wanna check out more of the work.

Now please click here and back Instaxxx: A Book Of Nude Instant Photography!

The Rest Of 2016

With 2016 finally ending I figured I would go through my 2016 photo archives and pull a bunch of photos of babes that probably weren’t gonna ever see the light of day and then just add them all together and do a post. Clear out all that stuff and move on. I still have a bunch of solid girl shoots from 2016 that haven’t gone up yet (and to be honest probably some even older ones) but I just wanted to do some January cleaning.

I am not going to give you the run down of EVERYTHING in this massive gallery but I will hit on the highlights and sort of explain why these photos didn’t get their own update.

To start with there are some safe for work photos (or at least Instagram safe) that I shot while working on my upcoming instant film book. These are shots of friends of mine that don’t usually do nudity but were willing to pose for my book. In several cases I shot a handful of digital shots as well and they were just sort of sitting on my hard drive. There were also some shoots, like the one I did of Cassidy Klein and Melissa Moore, where I just focused on shooting film and didn’t really bother to shoot much digital stuff.

Also in this gallery there are two galleries that were poorly shoot and fairly graphic that I had already posted to Girls of Driven By Boredom. I shot Abella Danger with her emoji pillows when I was staying with her in LA a few months ago. That same week I shot Belle Noire in her hotel room. Both shoots were shot with flash and were just us fucking around killing time. I was hoping to get one or two decent shots out of it and that’s it but they made good content for Girls of DBB. I pulled a few of the tamer pics to give you guys for free. If you wanna see the rest you should probably sign up for Girls of DBB.

Speaking of Abella, one night we were hanging out with a bunch of people at Carter Cruise’s place and I took a few photos of Blair Williams and Abella while we were waiting for Carter and everyone else to show up. One of the photos from that night might end up in my new book but the digital stuff was trash but the girls are babes so enjoy.

There’s some random photos of Draven Starr from the night I did her podcast and some random shots of Shannon from the first attempt at my instant film book Kickstarter video. My friend video taped me shooting her on Polaroid for the video but we ended up scrapping that whole idea but I figured I would give you a couple of random shots I took.

There’s some shots of Annika Amour that I took with this cheap ring flash I bought. I tried shooting with it a few times and hated everything (like these shots of Heather Vahn) so I sent her the photos and didn’t do anything with them until now. There’s some shots of Joseline Kelly that are terrible cause I got stuck in traffic and we ran out of natural light and then she got really high and couldn’t open her eyes. Whoops. Oh and there’s some shots of my friend Sonia that I just didn’t love. Fortunately she looks so fucking rad naked that there’s a bunch of shots here with lurking.

Anyway, this gallery features 80 photos, more than a dozen girls and shoots and a lot of fun stuff to look at. You can see these and more in high resolution on Girls of DBB (I posted this whole set three days ago there!) and up have a happy fucking 2017.

Merry Christmas

Just wanted to get on here late and wish everyone a Merry Christmas. I posted it on Instagram already but I feel like you guys need to see my Christmas card. I sent out about 100 of these in the actual mail but you get the digital version. Actually, if you still want one in the mail I can still make that happen. I got like 100 cards left still and a couple dozen stamps.

Anyway, this Christmas card is actually a Polaroid that was shot at Exxxotica NJ back in early November. I had this idea that I was going to launch my naked Polaroid book Kickstarter December 1st and then people who backed would automatically get a Christmas card but the video wasn’t ready to go by then and I would rather hold off until it was ready. This book is gonna be a big one and I need to do it right. Look for it in early January.

The Christmas card features (from left to right) Dahlia Sky, Cassidy Klein, Cadence Lux, Samantha Rone and Stevie Foxx. The actual photo was taken by Cadence’s boyfriend Nick. I think seeing a bunch of naked girls evened out the fact that he pretty much had to see my balls. I hope you guys feel the same way.

So yeah, Merry Christmas everyone, happy various other winter holidays and New Years and whatever. I am in DC for a few days but I should be back to NYC on Wednesday and back to work getting ready to launch this book.

2016 #MetLifeTakeover – 12.16.12

A few times a year I do a post about the Miami Dolphins and you just have to deal with it. On Saturday my Dolfans NYC partner Michelle and I threw a massive event called the #MetLifeTakeover. We run the aforementioned NYC Miami Dolphins fan club Dolfans NYC and over the past 8 or so years we have turned it into the biggest Dolphins fan club in the country and raises tens of thousands of dollars for charity in the process. Our #MetLifeTakeover event has become one of the biggest events on any serious Dolphins fan calendar and we sell around 1000 tickets to the Dolphins @ Jets game every year.

This year the game was on a Saturday night so we did things a little differently. Instead of having a party the day before at our bar Slattery’s Midtown Pub we held a pre-tailgate party starting at noon. We got to Slattery’s around 10am to start setting up and I didn’t get home until around 2am. Long fucking day.

The Dolphins organization has been very supportive of our events and sent broadcaster and former Dolphin Joe Rose to film his show “Cup of Joe” live at our bar. Team vice-president and Dolphins legend Nat Moore came with him to co-host the show. Also one of my favorite players of all time, former CB Sam Madison came up and actually hung out with us all day and even sat in the cheap seats way up top with us. He tried to pay for his tickets but instead we talked him into hosting our #MetLifeTakeover video (coming soon!). It was pretty amazing.

The party was a lot of fun and we did a free raffle and then did a live auction and raised some money for charity. We also raised another $1500 selling raffle tickets to a team signed helmet that the Dolphins sent us. After merch sales all in all we raised close to $3500 not including the money we made throwing the actual event.

The tailgate didn’t go as smoothy as usual. Our normal DJ couldn’t make it and we ended up renting a PA and getting a friend of a friend of a friend to DJ and he apparently didn’t have the right cords and so I spent most of the tailgate trying to figure out how to make that work. Eventually we got some music playing but it was kinda a disaster. On top of that one of the 6 busses we rented broke down so we had to load about 50 people on to the already packed busses. The whole thing sort of killed me but fortunately everyone seemed to have a great time even if Michelle and I were super stressed out.

Thankfully we had some great sponsors again. AQUAHydrate provided a ton of water for the event and we went through a case of Sailor Jerry very quickly as the Sailor and hot apple cider drinks we made were a huge hit. Pabst Blue Ribbon actually came out to the event and passed out gloves that had cup holders in them so you can drink your PBR with incredible style and class. So thanks to all of those guys!

The game itself was fucking amazing. The first half was kinda close but the Dolphins destroyed the Jets in the third quarter scoring 3 TDs in a five minute span. I lost my voice quickly and we could easily be heard on TV cheering for the Dolphins. The NFL Network was joking about how loud we were and how many Dolphins were at the game. A bunch of players mentioned us and the Dolphins social media posted about us several times throughout the night and posted this video the next morning. It was all pretty fantastic.

Anyway, I know most of you guys don’t care about any of this but for those who do I took a handful of photos. Thanks again to PBR, AQUAHydrate and Sailor Jerry. Phins up.

Charlotte Sartre

Back in July I randomly went to Chicago Exxxotica because I had been trying to shoot with this girl I met on Twitter named Charlotte Sartre. We had tried to shoot when I was in San Francisco a week earlier but she got sick and it didn’t happen. We were texting back and forth trying to figure out when we were going to be in the same city again and she mentioned that she was gonna be in Chicago for Exxxotica that weekend and she didn’t really know anyone that was gonna be there and I could stay with her if I wanted to make the trip. I ended up using a few frequent flyer miles and two days later I was in Chicago.

The night I got there we went and hung out with my old pal Draven and they ended up hitting it off and have been dating ever since and that is real fucking adorable. Draven had just had me on her podcast the week before so it was cool to see her two weeks in a row given that I don’t see her that often now that she’s out in LA.

Anyway the next day before Exxxotica started Charlotte and I did a photo shoot that is easily one of my favorite hotel room photo shoots ever. She actually read me her favorite passage from the bible while we shot which was extra creepy. I seriously love the way Charlotte looks so much and every photo was great. It was so fucking easy to shoot her and I can’t wait until we get the chance to shoot again. Hopefully at AVN or something. I seriously love taking her photo.

So go look at these photos because they are fucking great. And there are some really solid extra graphic ones on Girls of Driven By Boredom. I actually thought about posting them on DBB because they were so good but I had to save something for the people who pay me $18 whole dollars a year or whatever it costs. Buy yourself something for Christmas already. Give the gift of goth.

Now click here to go look at all the photos of Charlotte Sartre in Chicago!

Punk Rock & Christmas Cards

1) My punk band is playing our second show ever on Saturday at Otto’s Shrunken Head. Okay, technically that is not even close to true… they have been around for a decade but this is only their second show with me in the band. Okay, that’s not really true either because they played a show when I was in LA last month without me but whatever… it’s only the second show I have played since my last band broke up in like 2012 or something so I am excited about it.

The show is free and we play at 10. It’s the 28th anniversary party for a band called Iconicide. Not sure why a 28th anniversary party is a thing but that’s a long fucking time to be in a band. The last time I played a show with them I gave the singer the mic to do a Black Flag cover with me and he kinda screamed all over it and I was wildly drunk so I decided to flip him over and he hit his head into a cinderblock that was keeping the drums from moving. He was a good sport about it and I am real excited to play with them again. That show was fun as hell.

2) The Driven By Boredom Christmas Card is almost here. You can get on the list for one American dollar. In the past I haven’t charged but if I do it through Etsy it’s super fucking easy for me to deal with it. After the fees and price of the cards and postage and shit I am not making any money I assure you, this is just the easiest way for me to deal with it.

If you aren’t familiar with my christmas cards they are pretty epic. I did make a half assed one a couple years ago but the first two were real solid. The most recent one is pretty great although I must admit they weren’t printed very well. That being said if you want to horrify your friends and loved ones there’s nothing like having one of my Christmas cards on your refrigerator. Also it says Happy Holidays on it instead of Merry Christmas because I am doing my part in the war on Christmas.

Plus if you have all three you can watch my life fall apart in front of your very eyes! Who is that nearly tattoo free babe with the incredible ass? Look at that long luxurious hair looking so slender (in comparison to the Fat Jew)? Oh god, who is that 30 something on the new card? What has become of his life?

GET YOURS NOW!

Oh, and I got some new postcards made at the same time as the Christmas cards that are for sale now if you care about that sort of thing…

Christmas Is Coming...

Melissa Moore & Cassidy Klein In 35mm

I have been back in town for a while and I am not sure I have taken a single picture with my digital camera since I’ve been back. I’ve shot some film and some polaroids and I have been hard at work doing stuff like making new Christmas cards (more on that later…), band practice (first show since May on Friday!) and working on this god damn naked polaroid book and the fucking Kickstarter video. The video needs a Kickstarter of it’s own. Worked on the edit all last night and it’s still not done. Anyway, enough of that, let’s look at some photos.

Speaking of not taking any photos with my digital camera, when I shot Cassidy Klein & Melissa Moore I almost exclusively shot film. I was going to shoot Melissa in my creepy LA motel room and Cassidy outside somewhere but Melissa showed up late and Cassidy showed up early and they ended up both showing up at my motel within 20 minutes of each other. I starting shooting digital but the light was ugly so I kinda gave up and shot point and shoot 35mm stuff since the flash looks raw and “cool” that way instead of just looking like shitty photography.

After the shoot they didn’t want to leave because of traffic and my hotel had a hot tub so I ordered a giant pizza and hung out in a hot tub with babes for an hour or something and then they had to shower so I shot some more photos and it was kinda a fantastic way to spend an afternoon. Those girls are kinda great.

When I got the 20 rolls of film back from my trip I noticed I had enough of Melissa & Cassidy to do a whole post so that’s what I did since I don’t have a digital set to put up. Plus it’s nice to post some of my film work on DBB from time to time…. I’m gonna start posting more film on my Instagram too.

Since I always want to give subscribers to Girls of Driven By Boredom a little extra content I uploaded some of the Polaroid’s (okay, Instax Wide technically) to Girls of DBB. I figured that way they get some extra stuff and it gives people a reason to get mildly excited about my instant film book.

Okay, after you go get your Driven By Boredom Christmas card come back and look at some damn photos.
