2016 AVN Awards – 1.23.16

Another year another AVN Awards… The so called “Oscars of porn” returned to the Hard Rock in Vegas and I was there to take pictures for the millionth time in a row. This year I was covering the awards for the Village Voice & LA Weekly as well as Vice and even AVN themselves. I had to take a massive amount of photos to take so that I could make all my clients happy. I shot stage shots for AVN, crowd shots for the Voice & LA Weekly and then I shot 35mm film for Vice. So far everyone seemed pretty happy except that my film isn’t ready for pick up until tomorrow.

I also was shooting the AVN Week for Greg Lansky who runs Blacked and Tushy. Greg won best director and between him, Blacked and Tushy they won 16 awards! Like, that is fucking insane. Plus Riley Reid won female performer of the year and Abella Danger won best new starlet, both of which probably would not have happened without Blacked and Tushy. So it was pretty awesome to see Greg and company clean up after hanging out with them all week. I felt real psyched for them despite not having anything to do with any of it.

Other stuff of note…

My exgirlfriend Kimberly Kane was elected into the porn Hall Of Fame! My first porn friend Joanna Angel was in her HOF class too (she also hosted the damn thing!) as were Dana DeArmond and Nikki Benz so it was pretty awesome to see a bunch of people I like a lot go in together. They showed one of my photos of KK on the big screen when they announced her too. My buddy Hannibal Buress came to Vegas that weekend so I got him a ticket to the awards. They set him right by Ron Jeremy which was kinda hilarious. And there was a super emotional moment when one of my favorite porn humans Carter Cruise handed off her best new starlet crown to Abella Danger who is one of her best friends. I was kinda tearing up a bit which I didn’t expect from a porn award show.

Also, Waka Flocka Flame performed which was kinda great. He put on one of the best shows I have ever seen at the Gathering of the Juggalos and while this wasn’t on that level it was great to see him do his thing with a bunch of porn girls and strippers running around. Plus he followed me on Twitter so I gotta give him some extra props to justify mentioning that he follows me on Twitter right? Did I mention he follows me on Twitter? You should follow me on Twitter too.

Lastly thanks to all the porn people, especially the hot ones, that came up to me out of nowhere to tell me that they were fans of my photography. The best part about photographing the porn scene is that it’s one of the only places people think I am a good photographer. I am a fairly mediocre photographer but in an industry filled with lazy uninspired creeps a slightly less lazy uninspired creep really shines. Thanks guys!
