Khloe Kapri

You have seen a bunch of photographs of Khloe Kapri on my site. I posted photos of her and Kasey Warner and their friend Damia, and then at AVN last year her and Jane Wilde were part of that gallery, and then of course she came to the Gathering of the Juggalos with me this year because she is a crazy person, but I have never posted a gallery of just her photos even though I have two of them just sitting on my hard drive. That ends now. 

This gallery is from the first time that I shot her, the same day as the shoot we did with Kasey and Damia. She was living with Kasey at the time so I met her for a second in passing before the shoot, but this was pretty much our first time meeting. After the shoot was over I sent her some photos and of all the stuff I sent her the one she seemed to like the most was this 35mm shot of her eating pizza that wasn’t particularly pretty or sexy or anything, but she loved how much it captured her and honestly that is exactly what I am looking for. People often like my photos of other people a lot more than they like the shots I take of them. The lack of fancy lighting and retouching is a look some people dig, but then they see the bags under their eyes or a bruise or something and aren’t as into it. But Khloe seemed to really like the raw stuff and that made me want to shoot her again.

At AVN I ran into her and Jane Wilde and they both were waiting to get their makeup done and we had about 10 minutes to shoot. They both let me shoot them without makeup just hanging out in a hotel smoking weed and we got exactly the type of shots I want and they even ended up in my last book. So of course last time I went to LA they were two of the first people I hit up and I think Jane was actually the second person I shot on the trip. Khloe was one of the last because she was out of town, but we got some great stuff which you guys will see eventually. 

Anyway, Khloe rules and we make great stuff together. I found out we are going to be in Miami at the same time next month so hopefully I will get some new stuff of her with some palm trees and shit. Plus she just got braces so that’s a fully new look. Long story short is I am super glad I ran into her in Kasey’s kitchen and you can expect to see more photos of her on here pretty soon.

Before I get out of here, I should mention a couple things. 1) These photos have been on Girls of DBB for a few days. There are a bunch of extra more explicit shots on there and they are in twice the resolution. Plus it helps me not have to get a real job so I can keep doing this. 2) The other thing that helps me continue to create content for you guys, is buying stuff from my store. This weekend I have a 10% off sale on all books, zines, prints and everything else I have in the DBB shop, so go get yourself something already

Now that that is out of the way, click here to see a bunch of NSFW photos of the outstanding Khloe Kapri.

Elizabeth Warren In NYC – 9.16.19

Monday night I photographed Elizabeth Warren’s rally at Washington Square park for Gothamist. You should go over there and read the article and look at my pictures. I took a ton of photos that they didn’t post so I figured I would do my own update with the outtakes as well. 

I also felt like I should take this time to talk a little bit about why I am supporting Elizabeth Warren for president. I ended up pitching this to Gothamist specifically because I wanted to go hear her speak. I actually think she’s very inspiring and the more I listen to her the more I like her. The last time I endorsed a political candidate in a primary was Obama in 2008 and I went back today and read it. He is a little more centrist than I am but I thought his ability to inspire people really important. Elizabeth Warren is no Obama in that regard but her anti-corruption and corporate greed message is something I can’t help but get excited about. That message is why I voted for Bernie in 2016, but Elizabeth Warren delivers that message with a lot more positivity and hope. 

As a progressive the only real options for me are Bernie and Warren. I mean I am certainly not voting for Bill de Blasio and I wish he would get back to work running our city. Castro I like but I don’t really think he has a chance. Cory Booker is a little moderate for me, but he seems like a very genuine person and I would be all in if he somehow won the nomination. If I didn’t know anything about Kamala Harris going into the debates she might be one of my favorite candidates, but I find it very hard to vote for a prosecutor. It’s the same reason I wouldn’t vote for Amy Klobuchar, that and because she’s a centrist who opposes medicare for all and her only argument for being president seems to be that she could maybe peel off some Trump voters. Speaking of mediocre centrists, Joe Biden is like Klobuchar except a man whose brain is melting in front of us. Biden offers no plan for America, just a platform that he’s an old white man who knows Obama. Buttigieg and Beto are both too moderate for me, but at least they are young and kind of interesting. I wish Beto ran for senate again, but at least Texas has a good candidate in MJ Hegar (give her money). I am not going to go through everyone else, but I will say I think the idea of Universal Basic Income is an interesting one and I am glad Yang is bringing attention to it. So it all comes down to Bernie and Warren, and I don’t even want to tell you my problems with Bernie because some zealot will start yelling at me on Twitter because his supporters are by far the worst thing about him. You are not helping your case by screaming at strangers on the internet, bro.

I would talk more about Warren’s speech the other night because it was really great, but you should just read about it on Gothamist. There was also this great WaPo editorial about it that I would recommend as well. Now let’s look at some photos from her rally.

New Instax Scans

A couple of years ago I published my largest book to date, Instaxxx, a collection of instant film nudes. It mostly was made up of Instax Wide photos but also included a number of Polaroid 600 and Spectra photos that I have been shooting since the late 90s. The first nudes I ever shot were on Polaroid and the 120 page book represented nearly 20 years of work with over 200 photographs. 

Of course when I finished the book I didn’t stop shooting instant film. I have spent the last two years filling up box after box of new Instax and I plan on eventually publishing an update to Instaxxx, most likely in a smaller zine form. I recently started scanning some of the stuff I had shot recently and ended up scanning nearly 100 photos and I figured I would share some with you. 

Theis gallery features more than 75 images, and there are a handful of extras on my paysite Girls of Driven By Boredom if you want to see some more stuff (in twice the resolution). It also features a massive amount of models so I can’t run through the whole list but there are a few people that show up in multiple images so I will list some of the models featured:  Bunny Colby, Khloe Kapri, Alex DeLaFlour, Rose Ryan, Kirra, Jane Wilde, Chloe Cherry, Jade Baker, Scout, April O’Neil, Karlee Grey, Abella Danger, Veronica Rose and many more. 

You can get your copy of Instaxxx in the Driven By Boredom shop, including versions signed by some of the models listed above. Also, if you are interested in purchasing actual Instax from me I often have outtakes. Feel free to contact me if interested. Prices start at $50.

Once Again, Lily LaBeau

When I was uploading these photos I had to try and figure out how many galleries I already have of Lily LaBeau. It turns out this is the fourth gallery, but it’s really the sixth time I have photographed her. I shot her at AVN back in 2012 and then I shot her again later that year in LA. And then of course I shot her for WoodRocket on Mt. Rainier on an epic West Coast road trip a couple of years ago, but I also have photographed her two more times. I shot her the day before that Mt. Rainier shoot as part of a set that I saved exclusively for Girls of Driven By Boredom and then she was part of my Girls of AVN gallery in 2015. That’s six shoots when you count this one, and I hope to shoot her many more times in the future.

 This time we finally shot on my home turf in Brooklyn, but we did shoot at Lily’s AirBnB while she was visiting the city. This shoot is mostly non nude because there were tons of people living in the building who had access to the courtyard we shot in, but we snuck in some nudity fairly unsuccessfully. We got caught twice but the people there were actually very chill about the whole thing and one of the people even told us she would smoke out front so that we could have privacy. The courtyard was super pretty and we took a ton of photos on the fire escape so that was great. 

There is some extra nudity on Girls of Driven By Boredom because I took some photos that are a little too racy for this site. Oddly enough those shots were easier to get away with then the toplessness. All my favorite shots are in this gallery though and hopefully you will dig them.

Okay, that’s it on the Lily front, but I should also mention that I am back from another trip and I hope to be home for at least a month and I am very much looking forward to it after traveling all summer. I am headed back to Miami in October, but hopefully between now and then there will be plenty of regular updates and maybe some news on some projects. Oh, and I have a fish tank now

Chloe Amour

I was at a WoodRocket party in Vegas a year and a half ago when I saw this stunning woman in a velvet green pants suit and I had to go take her photo. I found out that her name was Chloe Amour and I hit her up on Twitter a few days later to talk about one day taking photos. I was actually surprised she wanted to shoot with me since most of her content looked really posed and edited and clean and my stuff is clearly not that. But she seemed into it and although it took ages for us to finally get together we got a lot of great stuff when we finally did. 

I shot her over at my friend Eddy’s place where I crashed for a couple of nights and she has a super pretty garden that made for a great location. Chloe ended up bringing a bunch of outfits so we shot three full sets in different outfits and mildly different locations. This update is just the first one of those shoots, and I actually think they get better as the day went along so if you like these be on the lookout for more. 

I don’t have a ton more to say about these and I meant to get these up days ago so I am just gonna get to the photos. As per usual I should mention that if you want to see these shots in high resolution you can check out Girls of Driven By Boredom. There are a few exclusive photos up there as well. Okay, now go look at some photos.

The Rest Of The 2019 Gathering Of The Juggalos

And that’s a wrap. All my photos from the 20th annual Gathering of the Juggalos are up. I do have a couple more things coming that I did for other blogs but it sounds like they might not be up for a little bit so I will just add them to the links below when it is published, otherwise, this is everything. 

It was a wild year, and a bit of a throwback when things at the Gathering seemed a little crazier. I took a ton of photos and had a bunch of clients so it worked out really well. It was my 10th Gathering and hopefully next time you hear the word juggalo out of my mouth it will be because I am getting ready to publish my book cataloguing the last decade. I am pretty ready to retire from juggalo anthropology but you never know, they might just drag me back next year.

This gallery is over 300 images and is just everything I had left over. You can click below for that gallery, but then all my other juggalo coverage will be below that.

Burn, Motherfucker, Burn

More than a week after the Gathering of the Juggalos ended, we have reached my penultimate update. Later today or tomorrow I will get up the last post which will have links to all of my coverage as well as a huge gallery of images, and then we can move on with our lives. But I have a pretty good one for you before we get to that.

The last night of the Gathering of the Juggalos ends with a set from the Insane Clown Posse. For the 20th anniversary they played one song off of every album and EP they have ever released, ending with a song off their upcoming album, ironically titled Be Safe. During that song a small group of juggalos set a couch or two on fire in the middle of the crowd. Juggalos love setting off fireworks in crowds, and they love burning shit, so they might as well burn some shit in the middle of the crowd.

After ICP was over the fire was going pretty strong so I ran over there to take photos. People started carrying over picnic tables and grabbing chairs and really anything they could to throw in the fire. Eventually security ran over to put it out, but juggalos just started throwing shit at them and as soon as they ran out of extinguishers the juggalos started the fire up again. 

There was a good mix of reactions of juggalos to this because juggalos contain multitudes. You had the juggalos actively involved in the fire on one hand, and the ones yelling at them to put out the fire on the other. In the middle you had juggalos just resigned to them being juggalos “fucking juggalos” one said while shaking their head. “I guess we won’t be back here next year” was a comment I heard several times. At one point people just started chanting “We fucked up! We fucked up!”

Eventually shit got even worse when juggalos started throwing fireworks and eventually propane tanks into the fire. At one point a commercial grade firework shot out of the fire and exploded feet from a juggalo who didn’t even flinch. Others around him jumped out of a way like it was a hand grenade, but this one motherfucker just stood there taking it all in. I started laughing so hard I was crying and had to lay on the ground. In the very last picture below (but not the last picture in the gallery) you can see something explode in the fire which sent a juggalo flying. He was somehow fine but was nearly trapped under the picnic table he was carrying at the time. It was quite the scene. 

I of course used the opportunity to do a little photo booth and after I shot Khloe Kapri and a few other friends in front of the fire I had juggalos lined up to take their picture in front of it. It was pretty entertaining and I stuck around for a while, but eventually it was clear that this fire was never going to be put out, and it was going to become this Eternal Flame that was carried from Gathering to Gathering by juggalos with torches so I decided I had to finally leave.

As I was walking out of the Gathering I saw fire trucks lined up, but they weren’t entering. Juggalo journalist Camille Dodero told me later that the fire department didn’t enter the grounds because they viewed the juggalos as a threat to their safety which is a little silly because juggalos wouldn’t hurt them, but they sure as hell would throw some Faygo at them. Whoop whoop.

Night Juggalos

I have three more juggalo posts to go. The last one might not go up until Monday because my last juggalo article goes up then and I was trying to time it with that so I could have a final list of all my published articles. That last one will just be an “everything else” post with over 300 images in it, so be on the lookout for that one. The second to last post I get up this weekend should be pretty cool too…. This one? Not so much.

I learned something new about my mirrorless camera this weekend… it is very bad at focusing in total darkness. The camera is great in low light, but in pitch black it doesn’t work it all. I turned on the little green auto assist light but it’s right where I hold the camera so my hand was always blocking it and then my lens is too long for it with the adapter to make it work with a mirrorless so it was a total fucking nightmare. I honestly have never been so frustrated with any equipment I have ever had in my life. Fortunately there aren’t a ton of situations where I am working in total darkness, but I know in the future I need to break out the old DSLR for that.

Long story short is that a lot of the stuff I shot at night looks like trash, but I did still shoot some cool stuff and there are almost 100 photos in this gallery so they aren’t all bad. As far as content goes, it’s all just kinda general madness and I don’t have a ton of stuff to say about it. There is some nudity so maybe a NSFW warning is in order but you are looking at photos of juggalos on a site that is mostly nudes so maybe that’s something you don’t need. Yeah, let’s just get to the photos.

Mike Busey & The Busey Beauties Return

With another Gathering of the Juggalos comes another gallery of Mike Busey’s weird sideshow. He brings a bunch of fire breathing strippers and performers and a Puerto Rican genie and a giant man named Big LA and then convinces juggalos to do really dumb things on stage. It all makes for great photos and now you get a gallery of it.

The Busey crew was set up down the hill from the main stage and it was honestly a huge pain in the ass to go back and forth so I didn’t shoot a ton around their area as I have in the past, but I did shoot their stage show and it was nuts. They got cut off before it got really weird, but there was a dick tug of war and an ass sundae contest and a live sex show. It probably would have been much crazier (there was a sex machine bike involved) but they ran out of time. Their setlist ended with “butthole fireworks” so just imagine.

They also hosted the main stage on Saturday so I got a few shots from that including the return of the live sex show juggalos and them giving out hundreds of White Castle sliders which is always a good move.

A lot of these photos plus more public nudity from the Gathering can be found in high resolution on the Girls of Driven By Boredom so go sign up for that if you haven’t. Then go look at photos and I am gonna go eat some more Cuban food because I an in Miami.
