My third Las Vegas post is probably the main reason I went to Vegas… the Adult Entertainment Expo. The AEE is a huge porn convention in the Sands Expo Center that works as industry event where people meet distributors, mingle with talent and check out new products, but it’s also a fan event where porn lovers can come meet their favorite stars, get autographs and pose for pictures. I am not exactly sure why anyone would want an autograph from a porn star but who am I to judge? I still collect football cards.
The whole thing is a mix of weirdness, creepiness and a a bunch of hot half naked babes. I shoot a lot of these things and they are pretty interesting for a bit but then you have sort of seen everything and they get boring. I keep coming back because they make for great photography and at this point I have a ton of friends that I only see at these shows so it’s a great opportunity to see everyone. Plus the pictures seem to do well traffic wise and the Village Voice and LA Weekly always buy the galleries. It’s a pretty good deal.
This year I only covered Friday (and about an hour Sunday morning) because I spent Saturday doing the CES stuff, so there aren’t as many pictures as I have posted of these things in the past. I also shot the entire thing without a flash because I wanted to see if I could do it. Yeah, I might have missed some shots but I got some pretty nice ones and I didn’t have to carry around my flash all day. Anyway, I am going to stop talking now. Come back tomorrow for the craziest pictures from my Vegas trip!
