35mm Artist Portraits

For some unexplained reason I haven’t really picked up my camera recently. Not sure if it’s the winter or the holidays or what but I just haven’t had a reason to shoot. So I figured this would be a good opportunity to publish some of the outtakes from my Arts zine. I photographed a ton of artists for this, and then I also had a bunch of shots I had taken in the past that sort of inspired the zine in the first place.

Essentially this is a collection of 35mm black and white photos of artists. This gallery includes the shots that are in the zine, and some outtakes from those shoots, but it also includes a handful of photos of artists that didn’t make the zine for whatever reason. They didn’t make the zine because they are photographers or don’t make work on paper, didn’t get the art into me in time (God dammit Oliver!) or I just didn’t know them well enough to ask.  Whatever the case there are a bunch of pretty black and white photos in here that you should look at.

So take a look at the photos and then buy a copy of the zine. You need Arts in your life!

T-Shirts, Turtles & Takeovers!

Hi there. I have some stuff for you guys and I figured I could throw all of it in one post and use alliteration in the title to make it seem more like this post has a real purpose and not just a thinly disguised attempt to sell you more shit you don’t need. Let’s begin.

First up, I found 17 old Driven By Boredom t-shirts under my couch. These shirts were for DBB’s 8th anniversary back in 2009. Apparently I forgot they were there. I threw them up on Etsy last night and now there are only 12 left and honestly I might keep a couple of them so if you want one, you should do it soon. Just saying. ORDER NOW!

Next up… Remember my Arts zine? I am really proud of that thing. It features really lovely black and white portraits of some amazing artist friends of mine and a selection of their art work. It’s printed well, inexpensive and fairly collectable given it’s small edition and great collection of artist… but because it doesn’t have any nudity in it, no one bought it. Seriously, I have sold like 30 of them. All of my other zines have done great, but this one? Not so much. I have learned my lesson… Fuck art, more tits.

Anyway, at the Zine Friends release party for Arts I traded amazingly talented human Penelope Gazin a print of a tiny puppy on a giant butt for a bunch of 5″x7″ drawings of the art school test turtle on the cover of Arts. (Side note – that turtle has an actual name and that name is Tippy.) I am keeping one of the drawings because it was a drawing of a turtle vomiting at the site of my genitals which seemed important. But the other four turtles are now for sale with the zine! So get your own Penelope Gazin drawing now! Do it!

Lastly, tonight my Dolphins are playing in their first and only Monday Night Football game of the year. Seemed like a perfect occasion to debut the video from the 2015 #MetLifeTakeover. The Takeover is a massive tailgate party/group trip that my club Dolfans NYC organizes to MetLife Stadium when the Dolphins come up to play the Jets.

The game went very poorly for the Dolphins but we threw a hell of a party! We had  nearly 1000 people go with us and had a huge tailgate with live music, catered food and free drinks thanks to Pabst Blue Ribbon beer, Sailor Jerry rum and AquaHydrate water. We had the CEO and Vice-President of the Dolphins stop by the tailgate and even Ace Ventura showed up! Check out the video!

Introducing Kate

This is Kate. She is real pretty. I met her at the Boobs of Bushwick party last winter. She was topless then and now she’s topless again. I was reminded that I hadn’t yet published her photos when I was posting the Finch Linden photos on Monday because we shot those on Kate’s roof.

Kate is a hairdresser and has one of those cool dryer things in her house that she actually uses which is wild. I came over to her place and she was just hanging out smoking weed in that thing so I took some photos of that and then she proceeded to get real high… maybe too high as I had to get rid of about 50 photos because her eyes were closed. Still, we got some lovely photos I think. I mean as I mentioned she is real pretty.

At the end of the shoot we went outside and took some naked photos of her on a bike for this public nudity zine that I just finished (comes out in January). I only had a few of them so I decided that they would be exclusive to Girls of Driven By Boredom because people like public nudity and I like money.

Now click here to lurk the rest these lovely NSFW photos of Kate!

Meet Shannon

You may have seen Shannon before on my Tumblr or Instagram or perhaps even on my app but here’s her first official shoot! People have been relentless about posting photos of her ever since the first time I met her so here you go. You win. Here they are!

I met Shannon when I went over to Erica’s place to do a shoot with her. Erica invited Shannon to style her and within 15 minutes Shannon was naked too jumping in the shoot. I planned on doing a real shoot with her right after but it never happened and it probably never would have happened had I not run into her on the street one night at two am. We ended up getting food with both our groups of friends and a few days later we were shooting.

The light in her room was getting a bit dark by the time I got there but I think I got some nice shots anyway. There’s a bunch of stuff of her in her mirror I like a lot. Once it got too dark we went up to her roof to shoot some more but it was too cold, windy and too many people could see her so we only took a handful of shots up there.

Shannon is rad as fuck and people seem to love her so you know I can’t wait to shoot her again. I feel like she would be an ideal candidate for a road trip shoot so maybe we can do that once it gets a bit warmer.

Anyway, this gallery contains most of the shots in here room, but there were a few too explicit for this site so you are gonna have to look at those over on Girls of Driven By Boredom. Plus about a dozen of the shots we took on her roof are exclusive to the app as well. I mean I gotta pay for our future road trip somehow right? Sign up now!

Lastly I should mention I am gonna try and get another girl gallery up on Friday so come back soon!

Finally click here to see all the NSFW photos of Shannon!

Finch Linden Returns

Did you know I haven’t posted any naked photo sets in almost a month? I didn’t. That shit changes this week.

First up, one of the best humans, Finch Linden. Finch is the most adorable but she also looks really rad naked and that sort of combination is pretty unstoppable. Add the fact that she is a talented photographer herself and real fun to hang out with and you get a super crushable human.

I met Finch through Gods Girls and the first time we took photos I was pretty sure I was going to go to jail because she got fully naked in the middle of the busiest intersection in Williamsburg. The second time we shot was when I was visiting San Francisco and we took some photos I really love. This time we shot on the roof of this girl Kate’s apartment in Brooklyn which reminds me that I haven’t posted the photos of Kate yet. Perhaps this week?

Speaking of this week, I am gonna get three naked lady sets up this week since I have been slacking on the babes. I already uploaded two of the galleries to Girls of Driven By Boredom but you have to be a subscriber to find out who the second set is… but it’s totally worth it because you can see this Finch set (and many, many others) in high resolution plus you get tons of exclusive content and early previews. Yeah, get on it.

Now click here to see all the babely NSFW photos of Finch Linden.

2015 #MetLifeTakeover

I have thrown a lot of parties in my life and honestly most of them have been pretty successful. I started out booking punk bands in highs school before moving on to managing bands and helping throw the occasional dance party. When I moved to NYC I decided there was too much competition to spend that kinda energy but I have thrown a couple parties a year for the last decade or so anyway. Out of the probably hundreds of events I have thrown or helped thrown I can only think of a handful that were disasters so I think over all I have had a pretty solid party throwing career.

All that being said, nothing compares to the #MetLifeTakeover.

For the last five or six years my Dolfans NYC partner Michelle and I have been throwing massive group trips to the Dolphins/ Jets game every year when the Dolphins come up to New Jersey. It really started with a loosely organized group in 2010 before getting a pretty serious group of about 70 in 2011. In 2012 the name #MetLifeTakeover was born and things really took off with about 200 people gathered the day before Hurricane Sandy hit. In 2013 the Jets ticket sales people took notice and actually started helping us organize a much bigger purchase when we had 750 people sitting together!

Last year we hit our all time record with 1200 Dolphins fans sitting together across four sections. This year we only had 900 because of the Thanksgiving holiday (Okay, the real reason is because the Dolphins are terrible) but we threw our biggest tailgate party yet with catered food, drink sponsors and music care of DJ Tropic and Solo D. We also threw a party the day before the event at our bar Slattery’s and raised about $5000 for charity over the two days not including the money we made from ticket sales.

The Dolphins got embarrassed on the field (although our record is still pretty good as our last loss in New Jersey came in 2o11) but we had a hell of a time off it and even at the end of the game you could still hear us loud an clear when the Dolphins scored a garbage time touchdown with 5 seconds left.

Aside from the game everything was amazing and I actually think you might dig looking at the photos even if you don’t care about sports. Fandom is always fun to lurk. But before I get to that I just wanted to thank our sponsors Pabst Blue Ribbon, Sailor Jerry & AquaHydrate. Taking photos of drunk people for a living sometimes has it’s benefits and getting lot of free booze (and water!) is one of them. Thanks guys!
