This weekend I was out of town at Exxxotica NJ a porn convention held in Edison, New Jersey (and sponsored by DBB friends Hotmovies.com). Porn conventions are always a strange thing to shoot. I look for weird fans, half naked girls and semi-famous people. There is always a good mix of that so it’s pretty easy to get good shots. On the other hand after doing a few of these it gets a little boring, but one thing I like about shooting porn conventions is seeing my porn friends who I only get to see a few times a year. There really are a lot of people I only see at conventions and as weird of a community as porn is, there are a ton of awesome people I am excited to see and hang out with.
This years convention got off to a really shitty start however. When I got there I found out that Burning Angel model and good friend of mine Jessie Lee got badly hurt in a car accident. My other friend Joanna Angel was driving but both her and (BA employee) Jojo were fine. Jessie Lee wasn’t wearing a seat belt. Jessie broke her neck and has been in the hospital since friday. She is in stable condition and as far as I know she will ultimately be fine, but she has more surgery ahead of her and a lot of rehab. Joanna was legally at fault in the accident and she has insurance so from what I understand her medical bills will be covered, but Jessie was in the middle of moving to LA and is not going to be able to work for a while so she needs help monetarily. Joanna and Burning Angel set up a page where you can donate to Jessie and also find out the latest information on her condition. So go to helpomgitsjessielee.com right away and donate some money and tell your friends. Later in the week I plan on publishing photos of Jessie Lee that I posted on here to hopefully draw some more attention to her cause.
Because of all this shitty news I didn’t take very many pictures on the first day of the convention. I was exhausted on day two of the convention so I didn’t really do a whole lot then either, but still there are a lot of really epic photos and I shot the entire show without using my flash once. I have two more galleries coming today and tomorrow from Exxxotica including shots from the after party on Saturday and shots from the legendary Strip For Pain.
I wanted to give a big shout out to Andy San Dimas who let me crash with her the whole time I was in NJ. I was expecting to sleep on a floor or have to drive back to NYC but instead I got to stay for free in a nice comfy bed with for my money one of the hottest porn stars in the world. She even bought me room service. What a fucking rad girl.
Finally, these photos are obviously NSFW and full of awesomeness so you should click here to see all the shots of Exxxotica NJ at the New Jersey Convention Center in Edison, NJ.
