Trouble & Bass 6th Year Anniversary – 9.28.12

Brooklyn’s own Trouble & Bass turned six years old yesterday and I had to show up to their anniversary party at SRB because not only did T&B form six years ago but September marks my 6th year living in Brooklyn and I figured I should celebrate as well. Despite the party being the Gawanus, a neighborhood not exactly known for it’s party scene, the party was bumping til late at night. People came out for the T&B regulars Drop The Lime, AC Slater, Star Eyes and The Capitan, but also Mike Q, Salva, and Nadastrom. It was rad to see Nadastrom because it was the first time I have been around Dave Nada since I found out he was the same guy that I knew from the DC punk scene in the mid ’90s. I remember him from his old band De Nada and the radio show he did and he told me the record I put out when I was 15 was one of his favorite DC records. It’s a small fucking world.

Anyway, enough of this  bullshit walk down memory lane, let’s just get to the pictures.

Jenna Valentine

Sorry I have been away. My girlfriend has been in town and I have been redoing my apartment. I also have worked two gigs that don’t really make for interesting photos so I haven’t posted them. I am going to make it up to you with these Jenna Valentine pics though!

Jenna Valentine is a total babe and not only does she model for Gods Girls but she also is sort of the mother hen to the Girls and she does rad things like find me naked ladys to take photos of when I am out of town. It rules. She also has magical boobs that are like the size of my torso and occasionally they shoot rainbows out of the nipples. The only bad thing about Jenna is that she refused to pose with a live chicken that I had found earlier in the day. I guess she thought it would try to peck her to death or give her Chicken Pox or some other avian flu. I forgive her.

Jenna is always really fun to shoot (remember last time?) and I am going to keep taking her photo cause people seem to love her and I love her so it works out. We shot these so long ago that my friend who lived where we shot the photos has moved twice since then. So we are already due for another shoot. I hope you enjoy these cause they are majestic, boob filled and obviously NSFW.

Sailor Jerry Presents: Nobunny – 9.20.12

I am going to make this quick because my girlfriend is on her way to NYC and I need to get a bunch of stuff done before I am unproductive for the week she is here. Long story short… last night was a lot of fun. Sailor Jerry puts on a lot of rock shows as you might have noticed from reading this blog and last night Sailor Jerry Presents brought the rock and roll stylings of Nobunny to the East Village tiki/dive bar Otto’s Shrunken Head. I saw Nobunny at Fun Fun Fun last year and he was awesome so I was pretty psyched for this show.

His back up band for this tour, Bad Sports, opened up and they were pretty awesome and the packed crowd at Otto’s was really into them. But when Nobunny came out, shit went to another level. It was like 1000 degrees in the little back room of Otto’s and I stuck around for the whole set sweating my ass off. Add to that all the cute babes and weird drinks at Otto’s and last night was just a really good time. I also shot a bunch of video for Sailor Jerry that you might see one of these days somewhere… Good times.

Ps. If you are wondering why Nobunny was not wearing his creepy bunny mask… he lost it.

#S17 – Occupy Wall Street Turns One – 9.17.12

I was still awake at 6AM this morning and I decided I would head down to #S17, the one year anniversary of Occupy Wall Street protest. I got there just after 7 and saw about a dozen people get arrested by 8. About an hour later I decided I should come home and upload the photos and try to get some sleep. I have been following the Occupy movement since before it even started and I honestly haven’t photographed nearly as much of it as I would have liked. The problem with the movement is that while I agree with a lot of it, there are so many too far left radical elements that make it hard to take it seriously. I watched news reporters interview the craziest of people and personally I think things like steam punk marching bands help trivialize important issues. So many people could get on board with this movement if the most visible elements of it weren’t so out there. Still, I am glad there is at least some at least mildly organized radical left answer to the Tea Party.

Whatever the case my experience yesterday was quite intense and seeing so many people including former Bishop George Packard willingly get arrested to promote something so important to them was very powerful. To me images like that are a lot more meaningful than people in costumes yelling about anarchy.

Finch Linden Naked In Brooklyn

I love shooting girls in LA because there is amazing light and everyone has great apartments to shoot in and there are tons of porn babes that want to get naked for me for some reason. New York is a bit tougher… everyone lives in shit holes, the big buildings block out all the light and there are less girls who get naked full time. But one thing New York has going for it is that girls can legally be topless in public and there is no better location than the streets of NYC.

I was introduced to Finch Linden on Twitter through mutual friends that I know from Gods Girls. Finch is a model there but she shoots more than your average tattooed cam girl and she knows what she is doing. I was pretty excited to shoot Finch when she came to NYC but I didn’t really have any locations. Being the bad ass motherfucker that she is, she was totally down to just get naked outside. I of course totally supported this idea and we hit the streets of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. I have already shot on Canal and Broadway, which is probably the busiest intersection in Manhattan outside of Times Square, so I tried to figure out the ballsiest spot to shoot in Brooklyn. I figured that Bedford and North 7th in Williamsburg would be perfect. It’s right outside the Bedford L train and really the heart of the hipsteriest neighborhood in the world. It was the perfect spot.

I got Finch in to position right on the corner and waited for a moment when I figured a lot of people would be crossing the street and would make it into the shot and Finch took off her dress and threw it to me. What I was not expecting was that she was not wearing any underwear. We just crossed the line from totally legal to sex offender status. This caught me off guard and everyone who was about to cross the street just stopped in their tracks and watched me shoot. I shot off as many photos is I could in 15 seconds and then we got the fuck out of there. I ended up getting some good shots but missing what could have been a truly epic photo.

From there Finch and I walked around the neighborhood trying to find some slightly less arrestable places to shoot, but we had an audience for all the mini shoots. We went to the Williamsburg Waterfront and over to McCarren Park and a few places in between. It was a really bright day so I couldn’t see my camera’s screen so I was relying on the light meeter and bracketing and trying to shoot really quickly. Finch on the other hand was dealing with the wind and the heat and kept trying to keep her hair out of her face. The combination led to missing some really amazing shots and I didn’t even want to look at these photos for a while. Finch is such a good model and was so down to take crazy photos but I just kept missing the shots I wanted. Luckily I took enough photos, and Finch is super babelicious so when I finally got around to looking at the photos it turns out we got some pretty awesome shots anyway. I am pretty sure you guys are going to dig them a lot whatever the case and hopefully one day Finch and I will get to shoot again and make even more awesomeness. But hot girls plus public nudity always wins, so let’s get into it…

Football Season Igor Has Returned

For those of you new to the site or to my life you may not know Football Season Igor. He is me during the months of September through January when my life is dictated by the fate of the Miami Dolphins. He is the guy who shows up to the club wearing all aqua and orange if you happen to throw a party on a Sunday. He is a lunatic.

For some unexplained reason I am a die hard Dolphins fan. And when I say die hard, I don’t just mean I can name most of the players and I watch all the games… I mean if the Dolphins lose a game I am shitty for days. I have cried at least twice in my life as a result of football, I have a Dan Marino tattoo and I happen to run the New York City Miami Dolphins fan club. I do not fuck around.

The Dolphins this year happen to be pretty bad at football. There are some positive signs for the future but right now it seems like they are probably going to lose more games than they are going to win. They have only been to the playoffs once in the last decade so you’d think losing would be something I would get used to. It’s not. I am devastated every Sunday and I get shittier as the year goes on and hope is sucked out of me every Sunday.

I don’t know why I do this to myself but I do. And you have to suffer through it. I will try to keep too much Dolphins related nonsense off my Twitter and website but you are going to have to deal with some of it. Sorry. So to start with here are some photos from the first 2012 Dolfans NYC meet up at Third & Long. It started off a lot of fun but turned sour really quickly. Still, it’s good to be around football fans again, especially when 90% of them are as crazy about the Dolphins as I am.

Porn & Chicken Invades NYC – 9.8.12

A little over a year ago I was in Chicago for Lollapalooza. I asked my friend Matt from Darkroom Demons if knew of any events I could work to make a little extra cash while I was in town. He told me about a party called Porn & Chicken that he normally shoots but he was so exhausted from all his Lollapalooza work that he convinced them to hire me instead. The party still got photos, I got some extra money and Matt got a night off. It was a perfect plan.

Porn & Chicken was totally insane and I had a blast. They were pouring booze on everyone, there was fire and nudity and fire extinguishers and for some reason people were dressed up as gnomes and wizards and other LARP type characters. It was a crazy scene and it almost made me not hate dubstep for a night. After the party was over I remember telling all the guys that they needed to bring PNC to New York because I thought the party would do really well here.

Last Saturday PNC finally made it to NYC when resident DJ’s Orville Kline and Phives played The Studio at Webster Hall with their Chicago hosts Dom Brown and Mandi Mae Black. The crowd at Webster was less than stellar and I was pretty disappointed because these dudes put on a good show. Despite the weak crowd they killed it and I hope they get back to NYC because I think in a better setting, promoted a bit differently the party could be really awesome. I mean when you mix chicken, porn, dubstep and crazy mother fuckers something weird is going to happen…

Vacation Slideshow

Most of you are probably too young to remember the days when you had to watch actual slide shows of vacation photos. I remember my grandparents went on a safari in Kenya in the 80’s and I had to sit there and watch all these slides projected on the wall for what seemed like hours. I thought the elephants and giraffes were cool but when you are 7 years old it gets really tedious really quickly. Vacation photos are almost always boring but fortunately for you guys I don’t do vacations like most people.

I rarely go on vacation because my whole life is sort of a vacation but once a year, every year, three of my closest friends and I go on a fishing trip in the small town of Lewes, DE. This year was a little bit different because sadly my friend Jamie’s grandmother died and it was just three of us. We also had the fishing boat we were going to go on get canceled twice which means we had to go fishing on a pier instead of on a boat but it was fun and relaxing and I have some pretty weird friends. My friend Barry is a 6’6″ tall in shape black dude with questionable taste in style and my friend Sam is a short nerdy Jewish guy. I have known them both since I was 10 but the three of us look really weird rolling into Dairy Queen together.

After the fishing trip I spent a day in DC with my parents before heading out to LA for my girlfriend’s birthday. She wanted to go to the desert to celebrate so we spent a day in LA, four days in the desert and then I hung out for another few days in LA. When we got back to LA from the desert I did a little bit of work and photographed two naked porn chicks but mostly it was just hanging out in bed with my girlfriend and eating lots and lots of food.

It seems like your normal vacation except that my girlfriend is a porn star and we went to the Salton Sea so shit got weird. You saw the photos we took in abandoned homes in Bombay Beach but you didn’t see the photos we took on the beach or in Niland, CA. Niland is this dying city at the far northeast end of the Salton Sea. It is an amazing place on it’s own but on the outskirts of Niland there is a place called Slab City. Slab City is a free RV park that has people living there year round. It’s sort of like a giant hobo camp in the summer full of crazy people, meth addicts, hippies and outlaws. The sign on the way in claims in spray paint that it’s “The Last Free City”. There is a shoe tree and a venue/bar made out of a bunch of trailers stuck together that has live music on the weekends. I really want to spend some time there at some point in my life. It’s incredible.

Slab City is in the shadow of one of the weirdest and most amazing tourist attractions in the country. “Salvation Mountain” is an art project started by a man name Leonard Knight. He built a mountain out of sand and trash and has been painting it for decades with religious messages.  Despite my disinterest in religion I have wanted to see this thing for years and meet Mr. Knight. Unfortunately he was put into a home for dementia late last year. From what I know about him he was a very kind man and never preachy and created an amazing work of art. A twenty something guy with a beard was working on it when we got there and was very nice as well. I asked him if I could take his picture and he said “This is Slab City. You can do whatever you want.” Amazing.

So yeah, this is not your normal vacation slideshow. We did some touristy stuff like visiting Shield’s Date Garden and Pioneertown but a lot of the photos are just of her naked all over the place so you cannot complain about that. We ran into Vincent Gallo at Dana DeArmond’s place and he gave us tons of tips on the Salton Sea, we hung out with a really cute puppy and there are outtakes from two shoots with naked porn babes. So yeah, you get some pretty shots of clouds and landscapes and touristy things, but you also get naked girls, dead fish and adorable puppies. It’s a pretty fun gallery and it’s all shot on 35mm. You even get some black and white stuff.

So click here to see all my NSFW vacation photos starring two of my best friends, Kimberly Kane and a bunch of other interesting people and places.

Kimberly Kane Vs. The Salton Sea

Last week my girlfriend Kimberly Kane and I went to the desert for a few days to celebrate her birthday. I am not sure why she wanted to go to the desert in August but who am I to argue? We stayed at this minimalist mid-century spa in Hot Desert Springs, CA and mostly just hung out in the hot spring pools, relaxed and spent a lot of my money on food. It was pretty awesome even though it was over 100 degrees pretty much the whole time we were there. It was definitely relaxing… except for our trip to the Imperial Valley.

Kimberly made the mistake of telling me that our spa was less than 100 miles from the Salton Sea and I pretty much demanded we take a trip out there. There were pretty much only three places in the US that I haven’t been to that I have a huge desire to visit and one of those places was the Salton Sea.

For those who don’t know, the Salton Sea was the result of the Colorado River changing course, breaking some dams and ultimately flooding the Salton Basin nearly 100 years ago. After 16 months the river was diverted and a 35 by 15 mile body of water remained. It would have evaporated except for agricultural run offs from the Colorado river keep it around. At some point a bunch of fish were added and thrived in the salty nutrient rich sea. It became one of the most popular fishing destinations in the country and yacht clubs and resorts were built all around the sea. Unfortunately the lake flooded several times in the 1970’s and destroyed many of the yacht clubs and boating docks. On top of that much of the land around the sea was undeveloped because it was sold off as real estate investments and after the floods suddenly the Salton Sea was not a very popular place to go.

But the biggest problem with the sea is not the flooding or the abandoned lots, it was the salt. The Colorado run offs are very salty and the lake evaporates 6 feet every year so with no out flow it just gets saltier and saltier every year. At some point the salt reached a no turning back point and every summer millions of fish die when the heat mixing with the salt makes it impossible for many of the fish to live. When the fish die up they wash up onto the shore and start to rot. The rotting fish cause miles and miles around the sea to smell unimaginably awful for months at a time. Maggots breed in the fish so their are flies everywhere and the sea becomes a breeding ground for botulism. In 1996 the botulism problem became so bad that hundreds of pelicans and other birds started dying and now die off every summer. So now barely 40 years after the Salton Sea was a thriving tourist destination it has become a rotting wasteland. It’s an absolutely beautiful place filled with rotted out mobile homes and meth labs and houses.

The day before we left for our trip we ran into Vincent Gallo of all people. We mentioned we were headed to the Salton Sea and he said we HAD to visit Bombay Beach. Bombay Beach actually still has people living there in a town with one store, two bars and the worst smell I have ever encountered. It is honestly the most amazing place I have ever been and when we got out the dead fish were like nothing I had ever seen. It was 106 degrees and sweat poured down our faces within seconds of getting out of the car. The smell was so powerful that we actually had to concentrate on not vomiting. The beaches were made up completely of fish bones. There were more flies than anywhere I have ever been and everything within 200 yards of the sea was abandoned and rotting in the salt and sun.

After five minutes Kimberly was ready to go, but I convinced her that we HAD to do a photo shoot. We found an abandoned building and managed to shoot for about 10 minutes in the shade before it was unbearable. We shot for another five minutes in a rotted out trailer and tried to shoot again in a third building but between the heat, the smell, the flies and the locals driving by on golf carts we had to call it a day. Luckily we got some great shots.

We continued our trip on to Niland, CA and we checked out Salvation Mountain and Slab City. I took a ton of 35mm photos of our whole trip so I will be doing another post later where I can go into more details about that stuff. The 35mm stuff should be pretty incredible so be on the look out for that. In the mean time you need to check out this amazing and completely NSFW set that contains both naked photos of my girlfriend and photos of rotting fish and abandoned homes. It has to be the weirdest nude girl gallery I have ever posted. I really think you are going to dig it.
