Off To The Galápagos…

So amazingly I am headed to the Galápagos Islands tomorrow. My parents have been talking about taking a family vacation there since my brother and I were little kids and now that they have retired they are finally actually doing it. I think the last time I went on a family vacation was when I was 14. Around 15 I got way too punk rock to be hanging out with my family and they were probably too embarrassed to be seen with me in public anyway. Whatever the case I get to spend 10 days with them and I feel like it’s going to be pretty amazing.

I am going to be on a boat for most of that time and only have access to what I assume is going to be wildly expensive satellite internet. I am going to try and get online at least once a day to update Twitter/Instagram & check emails but I am fairly certain I am not going to be updating this site again until after I return on the 24th.

With that in mind I wanted to update you guys on my new book and give you guys something to look at while I am gone.

I have laid out 150 pages of my Instaxxx book and scanned over 500 photos for it. The plan is for the book to be somewhere between 170 – 200 pages and I have a lot of work to do still. I am going to lay out probably 250 pages and then start editing down. After that I am going to take some of my favorites and add them to the zine I am working on that is going to accompany the book. It’s going to be about 40 pages and feature 35mm and polaroid nudes with $1 from each zine going to help marginalized sex workers.

So aside from just laying out both the book and the zine I also have to write intros to these things which is by far my least favorite part. I need to get someone to photoshop the dust off a bunch of the Instax scans and we need to design some covers which is probably the most fun part. Whatever the case there’s a lot of work to be done and leaving town for 10 days right now is not ideal. That being said, I hope to have the book at least laid out by the end of April so that I can get this thing out by mid June.

Pre-order Instaxxx here!

Now I wanted to leave you guys with some content and I also wanted to promote Girls of Driven By Boredom since I am not going to be working for the next 10 days.  If you haven’t signed up already there is a massive amount of content on there. It’s really cheap and has tons of exclusive and uncensored stuff on there. The images are all high resolution too.

Anyway, already uploaded over 100 Instax scans to Girls of DBB and today I just uploaded another 200! Don’t worry there’s still going to be a lot of surprises in the book but if you wanna see a bunch of Instax photos that no one has seen here’s your chance. Lot of fun stuff here that will never make the book too. A big chunk of this stuff will never see the light of day outside of Girls of DBB. So go sign up already!

Anyway, I am gonna go watch hockey playoffs before heading to the god damn Galápagos tomorrow! Here’s a couple mildly safe for work Instax for you to look at in the meantime.

Joanna Angel Returns!

This summer will be the 10 year anniversary of the last time I did a photo shoot with Joanna Angel. Amazingly I did my second shoot with her just a few weeks ago. I have known Joanna pretty much our entire adult lives and for a while her Burning Angel girls probably accounted for 90% of my sex life.

We have been through a lot together including the death of our good friend DJ Jess who we lost two years ago last week. I met Jess at the first Burning Angel party I ever went to and he became one of my first nightlife clients. Joanna and I even got tattoos in his honor together.

Anyway, back in 2007 when I shot Joanna I was a truly terrible photographer. We shot in the walk in fridge at a club called Luke & Leroy’s where they used to hold the infamous Rated X Panty Party. We probably shot the whole thing in 5 minutes but to be honest those photos are pretty hot looking back despite them being technically awful.

10 years later I got to shoot Joanna again, but this time at her beautiful LA home and we had plenty of time to shoot. It turns out I am still a pretty bad photographer because of all the lovely spaces at her place I chose to shoot in the room with aggressive back light, a trashcan in the background and a tiny orange sticker on one of the windows that I didn’t see at the time but now haunts me.

Fortunately Joanna is still a babe 10 years later into the future and I don’t think anyone cares about the technical quality of my god damn nudes. You just wanna look at babes and I got you the queen of the tattooed babes Joanna Angel!

Ps. There are a couple bonus shots and higher res versions of these on the Girls of Driven By Boredom.

Riley Reid Returns

Okay, technically she didn’t return as most of these were taken before the first set that I posted of Riley, but I have a bunch of new pictures of the amazing Riley Reid.

On one of my LA trips I went over to Riley’s place to shoot and she wasn’t at all ready which turned out to be a fortunate turn of events. She let me shoot her getting ready. As you guys may have noticed I prefer real life to the over planned over photoshopped photoshoots that most “erotic” photographers shoot. I certainly get criticized for it enough, but if you guys are fans of my work you probably at least somewhat appreciate it. Anyway, Riley let me shoot her without make up on, showering and brushing her teeth. The funny thing is I just posted a bunch of teeth brushing photos on my Instagram and I totally forgot I had the ones of Riley. Of course, two days later I was looking for a girl shoot to post and found these.

Once Riley got ready I took photos of her smoking weed which always makes for a good photo. Honestly I have so god damn many photos of girls smoking I could make a pretty great book, except for the fact that Richard Kern already beat me to it.

After that we went out into the streets and shot a bunch of public nudity, and then when we returned I took some photos of her in the trunk of my rental car. The Instagram of it turned out to be my most popular Instagram photo of 2016.

So yeah, Riley is one of my favorite people to shoot and although we only shot the one time we pretty much shot all day and I got some amazing content out of it. I hope I get to shoot her again one of these days cause she’s kinda incredible.

By the way, there are some extra explicit shots from this set on Girls of Driven By Boredom.

Now click here to see a bunch of photos of motherfuckin’ Riley Reid!

Ellen Stagg Dirty Girl Collection Release Party – 3.2.17

Last week my friend and fellow naked lady photographer Ellen Stagg did a book signing for her new book “Dirty Girl Collection” at the Museum of Sex. Ellen asked me to shoot the party and given that I have had a mild crush on her for the decade that I have known her it seemed like I had to come shoot. Plus wherever she goes babes show up and she gave me a copy of her rad book so I as pumped.

The signing was a lot of fun. I ran into a ton of friends and there was a cake made by my pal Ashley Holt who made cupcakes for my Dinner With Igor book release. Clearly she is a big fan of baking for art book parties.

Ellen also had my old friend Penny Wren and another burlesque babe Gigi Bonbon flanking her to help sell books and serve booze which was not the worst thing photographically.

I had a great time with everyone, took some fun photos and came home with a lovely book to add to my absurd photo book collection so all in all it was  great night.

Aneta At Hello Beautiful

First of all, I am back from my trip to LA. You may have noticed that because I am actually updating. I had this update all ready to go, but yet I couldn’t find 30 minutes to post it while I was in LA. Moving on…

Aneta is a fucking babe. I found her on an almost completely useless website and sent her a message but she didn’t get it because the unnamed site is almost completely useless. However, I did find a link to her Instagram and I followed her and she followed me back and a week later she was getting naked in front of the staff and customers of the Williamsburg Brooklyn salon, Hello Beautiful.

The shoot came about when I had just launched my Instaxxx Kickstarter. The day it launched I reached out to Nakid Magazine and offered them an exclusive instant film shoot in exchange for promoting my Kickstarter. They were all about it, so the next day Aneta and I met up at Hello Beautiful.

I had just shot Hello Beautiful’s owner Rebecca (and her girlfriend) for my Instaxxx project and she told me I could shoot at Hello Beautiful sometime. My thought was I would use it after work but Aneta and I went over there anyway because Rebecca mentioned their was a basement that we could use during business hours.

When we got there Rebecca convinced us that we should just shoot while customers were in the shop. She asked anyone if they minded and they didn’t so we got to work. We shot a ton of Instax and I also shot a handful of digital too because it was such a cool opportunity so I figured I would double down.

The photos ended up on Nakid Magazine a few days later.

Anyway, I uploaded all the digital images to Girls of Driven By Boredom over a week ago because I like to keep content on there fresh all the time so I figured I would throw it up on here too. Honestly the digital stuff was a second thought but I still think they are pretty fun.

And speaking of Girls of DBB and mediocre digital photos I threw up some random digital shots of Stevie Foxx and Cassidy Aka HookerProblemz hanging out in a hotel room doing weird shit mostly involving spitting on each other. I was shooting them for my Instaxxx book too but I figured I should just throw these up on Girls of DBB anyway.

Lastly, I should mention my trip to LA was pretty successful. I think I shot at least a half dozen Instax that will end up in my new book, I played a bunch with the Instax Mini camera which might end up in the introduction of the book and I shot about 10 rolls of 35mm film. On top of that I shot a half dozen digital sets and I think I may have even found a printer for the book so all and all a good trip.

Okay enough house keeping; let’s look at some photos….

Dirty Valentine’s Day – 2.14.17

Last week I had some art in the third annual Get Summered Valentine’s Day erotic art show. It was at Tender Trap and I sold a photo of Heather Vahn and then it turned out the buyer never came back to pay and so I guess I didn’t actually sell it but the party was fun.

I took my friend Holly Beth who kinda pretended to be my Valentine despite the fact that we weren’t actually on a date but she did let me take a few photos of her topless so that’s important.

Kinda the highlight of this gallery is the pole dancing from “Incredipole” which is kinda an incredipole name for a crew of pole dancers honestly.

Also there was another naked babe at the end who I have no idea who she is but I wanna take more photos of her so if anyone knows her let me know.

This gallery is way late so I am just gonna end this write up here but shout out to everyone who put this on and all my friends in the show, Smurfo, Insuh, Myles & Diana. Was cool being in a show with you guys. Also Nakid sponsored the show and I just shot something for them, so that’s cool too. Now let’s get on to the photos.

Now click here to see the (NSFW!) photos from Dirty at Tender Trap.

2017 Girls Of AVN

Okay! I was waiting on my Vice AVN article to post this because there’s some crossover between this digital stuff and the film stuff I shot for Vice but it still isn’t up and it’s Friday and I wanna give you guys something to look at over the weekend so let’s do this.

I spent most of my time at the Adult Video News Awards in Vegas working on my Instaxxx book (just three days left to back it!) which means I did a TON of really quick photo shoots with girls. These served as excuses to work on other assignments as well like the Vice article I mentioned and this Mass Appeal Magazine article. But while I was doing those shoots I did a bunch of mini-digital shoots too and I packaged them all here in a massive 100 photo gallery of just babes at AVN. Let’s break it down.

I shot like 5 whole photos of Abigail Mac. We mostly worked on Polaroids but she was in my Mass Appeal article too. I took a handful of photos with this really cute cam gill named Stefanie Joy. We were hanging out in my friend’s hotel room and I shot her just sort of chilling. I with Melissa Moore while she was getting ready for a party and I randomly took one photo of her naked in a bathroom. It’s pretty funny so I included it. I tried to shoot a whole set of Bobbi Dylan but we were in a stairwell and we didn’t wanna get caught so we did it too fast. I still got a handful of nice shots, but a lot of slightly out of focus ones and shots of her blinking and stuff. Whoops.

Not sure why I decided this should be a paragraph break but I took a few photos with Ramona Flour in a parking garage at like 3am. I know Ramona because she is in charge of all the Chaturbate cam girls (and guys) so I have run into her at a bunch of events. She is real cool looking so was glad to do a quick thing with her. Blair Williams is one of my favorite people these days and she was really sick at AVN. I traded her some DayQuil in exchange for a quick photo shoot of her laying around her bed dying. I also shot some photos later that night of her getting ready for a party that she was too sick to go to.

For my next random paragraph break I shot Keisha Grey who is like the most attractive human I know. We met one year earlier and we got to shoot again this year. She is an insane person and climbed out onto the side of the Hard Rock completely naked. It was pretty amazing but it was freezing out there so she ran a bath first so when she got back inside she could just jump into it. I took photos of her in there too. Real cute.

Next up I was supposed to shoot Holly Beth but we had no idea where to shoot. Fortunately we ran into Hunny Daniels who said we could shoot in her room if it was okay with her roommates. They were down and three of us went up to her room. On the way we ran into two of Holly’s friends Jasmine Grey and Robin Mae. They wanted to shoot too.  Suddenly we had four naked girls in a room. That’s when Hunny’s roommate Jane showed up with a girl named Kissing High which seems like it might have been a stage name. She had epic boobs though. So I shot all six girls and it was great. I also did a full shoot with Holly as well.

Speaking of full shoots, I did do a few of them while I was in Vegas. I shot Holly like I mentioned and I also shot another cam girl named Moth. Moth is fucking amazing and I decided to post her full set exclusively to Girls of Driven By Boredom. It’s up now and you should check it out! I put a few teasers in this free gallery but you need to see the full Moth set!

Also included in this gallery are teasers from my full shoots with Taurus Angel and Jillian Janson. I shot so many photos of Jillian while we were filming a thing for Showtime’s AVN Awards program. It probably won’t air until the summer or something insane like that so I won’t be posting the photos until then, but I did shoot some Instax which I am sure will be shown on Showtime. She signed five of them and they are still available for sale from my Instax Kickstarter! Get them now!

2017 Adult Entertainment Expo

Okay! So let’s get the rest of these photos from Vegas up! I posted the AVN Award update earlier and now here are the shots from the 2017 Adult Entertainment Expo. Again, these happened more than a week ago and the LA Weekly already ran a gallery from them, but I have a bigger edit for you guys today and if you care about porn stars or weird photos from conventions then you will probably dig these.

I truthfully don’t have much to say about these that I haven’t said a bunch of other times. I have taken photos of the AEE every year for the better part of a decade and they don’t change too much… I cover them because all conventions are easy to get interesting photos and people like looking at porn stars… plus I get to see everyone and meet new models and did I mention it’s really easy to get decent shots? There’s so much going on you just gotta kinda point your camera once in a while and just meander around talking to babes. It’s a solid gig.

Oh, I should mention that while shooting the AEE I also shot this article for Mass Appeal about what embarrasses porn stars. I am pretty happy with a few of the portraits so you should check that out too.

Um, I also have a Vice article coming soon from this whole weekend and of course a number of photos from this Vegas trip will be in my Instaxxx book which you should pre order now.

Okay, that’s all I got. Go look at photos.

2017 AVN Awards – 1.21.17

I am back from my two week LA & Vegas trip and ready to get you some photos. I do this trip nearly every year around the Adult Video News Awards. I think I have shot the AVNs or at least the events around the AVNs every year since 2008. The trip is how I got started photographing people in the adult industry and now it’s become a good way to see friends, meet new models and make some money… plus with only a few hour drive to LA it’s a good excuse to hit up LA for a week without having to pay for a flight.

Given that the AVN Awards happened over a week ago I am clearly a bit late on these photos, but I shot them for the LA Weekly and posted that link everywhere so I figured that if you really wanted to see my AVN Awards coverage you had plenty of opportunities to do so. That being said, my edit is much bigger than the LA Weekly gallery and of course you don’t get to read a long, pointless, poorly written blog about it.

This year’s AVN’s were pretty cool because a lot of my friends won stuff. Adriana Chechik won Female Performer of the Year, Greg Lansky won back to back Director of the Year awards and my friends cleaned up the acting awards. Best supporting actress went to Joanna Angel and Xander Corvus won best actor. Best Actress went to Kleio Valentien who I actually helped get into porn many years ago after sending this 2009 photo shoot to Burning Angel! (Update: That gallery is broken for some reason but you can find it on Girls of DBB!)

Also it was hosted by Riley Reid (and Aspen Rae) and a bunch of other friends won awards too like my LA landlord Abella Danger who won best Star Showcase. Holly Hendrix won Best New Starlet and we aren’t friends yet but we talked about shooting soon so hopefully we will be by next AVN.  Oh, and Sgt Kabukiman NYPD was there and he’s pretty much family.

Okay, let’s get to these photos. My shots from the Adult Entertainment Expo will be up ASAP too.

Ps. Donate to my Kickstarter. Many AVN Awards winners are in the book.

PPs. Did I mention Flo Rida performed? He did. We got low.
