Melissa Moore & Cassidy Klein In 35mm

I have been back in town for a while and I am not sure I have taken a single picture with my digital camera since I’ve been back. I’ve shot some film and some polaroids and I have been hard at work doing stuff like making new Christmas cards (more on that later…), band practice (first show since May on Friday!) and working on this god damn naked polaroid book and the fucking Kickstarter video. The video needs a Kickstarter of it’s own. Worked on the edit all last night and it’s still not done. Anyway, enough of that, let’s look at some photos.

Speaking of not taking any photos with my digital camera, when I shot Cassidy Klein & Melissa Moore I almost exclusively shot film. I was going to shoot Melissa in my creepy LA motel room and Cassidy outside somewhere but Melissa showed up late and Cassidy showed up early and they ended up both showing up at my motel within 20 minutes of each other. I starting shooting digital but the light was ugly so I kinda gave up and shot point and shoot 35mm stuff since the flash looks raw and “cool” that way instead of just looking like shitty photography.

After the shoot they didn’t want to leave because of traffic and my hotel had a hot tub so I ordered a giant pizza and hung out in a hot tub with babes for an hour or something and then they had to shower so I shot some more photos and it was kinda a fantastic way to spend an afternoon. Those girls are kinda great.

When I got the 20 rolls of film back from my trip I noticed I had enough of Melissa & Cassidy to do a whole post so that’s what I did since I don’t have a digital set to put up. Plus it’s nice to post some of my film work on DBB from time to time…. I’m gonna start posting more film on my Instagram too.

Since I always want to give subscribers to Girls of Driven By Boredom a little extra content I uploaded some of the Polaroid’s (okay, Instax Wide technically) to Girls of DBB. I figured that way they get some extra stuff and it gives people a reason to get mildly excited about my instant film book.

Okay, after you go get your Driven By Boredom Christmas card come back and look at some damn photos.

AVN Nomination Party, New Merch & More

After being gone for nearly all of November I am finally back in NYC! I have so much to do this week and so much to get to so let’s get to it as quickly as we can! Make sure you read the whole thing!

First up is the photos from the AVN Nomination party that I shot more than a week ago in LA. I totally forgot to get these photos up but some of them were already up on the LA Weekly. This gallery has a LOT more photos and a lot of nudity. The party featured a wild performance from Ty Dolla $ign and a ton of my friends were nominated for awards so congrats guys.

AVN Nomination Party

Speaking of people that were nominated for AVN Awards my friend Abella Danger was nominated for a ton of awards including Female Performer of the Year. Back in June I took some random photos of Abella in her bed filled with emjoi pillows. The photos were just shot with my on camera flash and are really mediocre from a technical standpoint, BUT they are still really fucking hot and a lot of them are honestly too explicit to post on this site anyway. Fortunately for you when I take mediocre but sexy photos they get uploaded to the Girls of Driven By Boredom which features all the girl photos you see on here, but also a lot of exclusive stuff including a lot more graphic shots that I never post on the main site.

Finally I have some new merch to bring you guys!

The black on black Driven By Boredom snapback hats are back. I just got 10 of them made (well a dozen but I am keeping two) so they (hopefully) shouldn’t be around too long. Since I missed Black Friday and Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday and Ayn Rand Sunday I am gonna make the hats $3 cheaper and include an DBB enamel pin for free for the rest of this week!

Click here to get your DBB Snapback!

DBB Snapback

This brings us to the DBB Enamel pins! I just got some really awesome DBB Enamel pins in the mail. Most people charge $10 for enamel pins because they have no respect for you. My pins are just $6 (with free US shipping!) because margins on pins are fucking stupid and I can pretty much make my money back  as long as I sell like 20 of them. These things are super hip right now and clearly you need one so you can look as cool as all your friends. Did I mention you get one free with a DBB Snapback? Get on it.

Seattle Girls For Wood Rocket

My fifth and final collaboration with Wood Rocket went up a few days ago. It’s a pretty fun shoot with three girls: Lucy Everleigh, Romance and Hunny Daniels. Lucy came with me up to Seattle and the first night we crashed with Hunny and then we got a hotel so we could take photos in it with a few girls. One of them couldn’t make it but it still was a three girl shoot which wasn’t a terrible idea.

Now I don’t really know how to live my life like the world didn’t just end last night and the United States some how elected a racist, misogynist sex offender as our next president. As a straight white man I feel like I will be okay at least until the war starts or the ocean levels rise but I am fairly certain I am going to lose my health care. Oh, and I have empathy so I am not terribly excited about how women and minorities are going to be treated from now on. I have no fucking idea how this could happen but I guess a bunch of people wanted it to happen so fuck it right? Let’s all watch the world burn together. Honestly I don’t even know what to say or do.

I am in Tucumcari, NM right now headed west. I ate a giant steak today and now anyone who donates $4 or more to the Kickstarter gets a really stupid button. I honestly feel really sick now from the steak but hopefully I will not die. At least I got a free t-shirt. Tomorrow we are headed through New Mexico and onto Holbrook, AZ where I booked a room inside a fucking wig wam because American is still great.

Anyway, back to the girls. Check out the full set on Wood Rocket here. I uploaded a few pics to this site because it’s what I do and they are on Girls of DBB also, but if you want to see all the photos in high res for free and all that you need to go to Wood Rocket.

Talk to you guys soon. Stay sane.

2016 Exxxotica New Jersey

Hey guys I am on day two of a three week trip starting with a drive across the country. I am just south of St. Louis at the moment helping my friend Alex move to LA. From there I am in California for 10 days before hitting DC for Thanksgiving and then heading to Miami for the post-Thanksgiving weekend. Should be a fun trip.

Normally I would put up the Road Trip blog while I was away but I have a few updates to get to before I do that. The first one is this post about Exxxotica, NJ which I will get to in a second. I also have to do an update about the final Wood Rocket gallery that went up a few days ago.

My third update is going to be about the 72 Oz Steak that I am going to attempt to eat tomorrow. In Amarillo, TX there is a restaurant called the Big Texan and they have this infamous steak eating contest. Last time I did Route 66 it was on my list of things I wanted to do but it didn’t work out. Tomorrow it’s fucking going down. I put up an absurdist Kickstarter to raise money to eat the steak and I raised twice as much in 24 hours so that was pretty amazing. Really the Kickstarter is just a pre-order for the new Driven By Boredom enamel buttons I made but don’t tell anyone that. You still have nearly a week to get on that but even if you don’t you can still watch me eat it tomorrow, just download the app Hype and follow drivenbyboredom so you know when I go live tomorrow.

Now, let’s get to these fucking Exxxotica photos.

I have covered so many Exxxotica conventions and most of them have been in Jersey. I have covered two in Chicago as well but this was my first time actually working for Exxxotica. I hit Exxxotica photographer/ friend of mine/ excellent naked photo taker Steve Prue up about getting a ride to New Jersey and he told me that he actually needed a second photographer for Friday. So that worked out pretty well.

Normally when I shoot an adult convention I sort of half ass it because there’s so much to shoot and it’s easy to get a handful of good shots and spend the rest of the time talking to porn babe friends. I mostly cover these things because it’s a good way to find new models and visit people I only see a few times a year, but because I was working this thing I actually had to work and I took over 1000 photos over two days so there is a massive amount of photos for you to look at.

 

I gotta get back on the road since I have to make it to Oklahoma City tonight so I am not gonna say much more about the convention but there’s a lot to look at and it’s pretty NSFW. Oh, and my Christmas Card is gonna be pretty great this year…

Lastly, before we get to the photos make sure you go vote today. Even if you don’t like the candidates it’s important to be part of democracy. People fight and die for something we take for granted so don’t and get out and vote. And if you live in California please Vote No on 60. It’s a measure designed to look like it’s protecting adult performers but in actuality is a way to harass the adult industry and get it out of the state. Read more here.

Ps. Samantha Rone took some of these photos cause I gave her my camera for a bit because I didn’t feel like carrying it anymore.

Lil Brown Eyes For Wood Rocket

Part four of my five part collaboration with Wood Rocket is here and it’s a fun one! Lil Brown Eyes returns with a pool party shoot shot in Los Angeles and Bryan Gozzling’s place. If you haven’t been paying attention I shot 5 shoots for Wood Rocket as sort of a continuation of the Road Strip video series for them I did back in 2013. So far we have seen shoots from Lily LaBeau, Lucy Everleigh, April O’Neil and now Lil Brown Eyes. The final one is gonna feature not one but three girls so look for that soon!

This shoot with Lil Brown Eyes isn’t very well photographed. It was super bright out and the light was wildly harsh and I didn’t have anyone standing around with a bounce card or anything because let’s be honest I am barely a professional. That being said, LBE is fucking adorable, the pool is beautiful and how great do her hot pink heels go with that giant inflatable flamingo? Plus at the end of the party she cooked us food and the shots of her grilling corn are kinda fucking amazing thanks to her actually being in the shade a bit. I should also mention that she did her pseudo corpse paint make up like that because she kinda thought it would look hilarious with the sort of 80’s Penthouse vibe of the whole shoot. I wasn’t mad about it.

So all the photos are on Wood Rocket but I uploaded about 15 of them to this site just so there would be something on this site for the archives but clearly go to Wood Rocket instead of looking at them here. They are on Girls of DBB too but no reason to go there when you have them for free on Wood Rocket, BUT I should mention that there is a VERY NSFW shoot of LBE and her “daddy” Bryan Gozzling from the weekend I met them on Girls of DBB that is probably worth checking out if you are a fan of these photos.

Anyway, go look at the Lil Brown Eyes pool party photos on Wood Rocket now!

Meet Jezabel Vessir

When I was in Chicago for Exxxotica my friend Heather Vahn introduced me to her friend Jezabel Vessir (or is it Visser? Her Twitter has both names and that’s fucking confusing). We ran into each other a few times that day and in the middle of the night on the last day of Exxxotica we did a quick photoshoot in her hotel room.

You may have noticed I shoot in a lot of hotel rooms and clearly that is mostly for convenience given that when I am traveling or people are visiting NYC they make for easy locations. They are not always so fun to shoot in because hotel rooms tend to have horrible light and random fixtures and things that get in the way of otherwise decent shots. But something happened at some point in my life and I started to love the look of hotel rooms… especially the run down ones and stuff. The hotel in Chicago was pretty nice, but I still love the realness of shooting in a room with luggage on the floor and awful hotel room light.

Aside from the hotel room vibe, Jezabel is fucking stunning. Like she is so unreasonably pretty and she has this puppy dog look when she’s just looking at you which is actually kinda amazing and then she smiles and that’s amazing too and I don’t know but I really want to shoot her again, and again and again. Hopefully I will get another chance at Exxxotica New Jersey in November if someone can give me a ride there…

I don’t know what else to say except Jezabel is wonderful and there are some extra bonus pictures on Girls of Driven By Boredom. If you had Girls of DBB you could have seen these photos two days ago too (and in high resolution). Just saying…

April O’Neil For Wood Rocket

Part three of my collaboration with Wood Rocket was published over the weekend and it includes a ton of photos of April O’Neil. Everyone loves April so you should all be really happy about that. Just to recap: when I went on a west coast road trip this summer I shot five sets for Wood Rocket to help pay for the trip. I shot a sexy road trip web series with them called Road Strip a few years ago so we decided to continue with our on the road partnership. We started with Lily LaBeau and then Lucy Everleigh and now we reach the midway point with April!

These photos from April were all shot on the same day (well the same 24 hours at least) as we drove from LA to San Francisco. The first part of the set was shot along side of the Pacific Coast Highway. I actually thought we were going to have time to stop off at a few places like this but we kinda ran out of time. We did however find a really amazing cliff to shoot on. I actually don’t even remember where exactly it was except that it was somewhere between LA and San Louis Obispo. I know this because SLO is where we spent the first night of our two day road trip.

The legendary Madonna Inn is in San Louis Obispo and I was really excited when I found out it was on the way. We were actually just supposed to to LA to SF in one day until I realized that we could stop there. The place is insane and has tons of weird theme rooms and I really want to spend more time there. I kinda want to just live there actually. We got there pretty late so we didn’t get to explore much but the food was good and there was a hot tub and heated pool so not too mad. We got the Pioneer room which was pretty lame compared to some of the other crazy rooms but I guess that’s what you get when you book the cheapest room on Hotels.com. We did a quick shoot in the morning before we left and bought some souvenirs in the gift shop before heading to San Francisco.

The next day we took a bunch of random 35mm photos that I already posted but we didn’t shoot any proper digital photo sets or anything. We did manage to get locked out of my dominatrix friend’s dungeon that we were sleeping in. April is a wizard and she picked the lock and we actually got a few hours of sleep before we made our separate ways and I made my way up the coast.

I uploaded the public nudity photos to Driven By Boredom just so there would be content and of course they are on Girls of DBB too, but BOTH sets including the Madonna Inn stuff that has way more nudity are available completely for free on Wood Rocket so go look now!

Lucy Everleigh For Wood Rocket

The second part of my collaboration with Wood Rocket came out over the weekend. I did five shoots for them over my two week west coast road trip last summer and while I am uploading highlights from the sets, the full sets are available exclusively on Wood Rocket. The first set featured Lily LaBeau shot on Mt. Rainier in Washington state and the second set features two different quick shoots with Lucy Everleigh.

Lucy traveled with me for more than a week on my road trip so I took a ton of photos of her. You may have seen the 35mm shots I posted from the trip but I did several digital shoots with her. The first shoot we did was in a rose garden in Portland. My friend Chelsea took us there and fortunately it was raining so there weren’t a ton of people around. I am fairly certain we got caught but no one said anything. We did the whole shoot in 10 minutes so that was fun. The second shoot was in Hunny Daniels’ back yard in Washington. It wasn’t actually supposed to be a shoot. Lucy just wanted to climb a tree. I came outside and she was up there so I grabbed my camera and made her take off her shirt and we got some great photos.

I shot a number of other photos with Lucy along the way including a set with Hunny and another girl for Wood Rocket and one with three other girls in Portland. I also have two other Wood Rocket sets that you will probably get to see very soon. In the mean time, go look at the Lucy photos over there already!

As I said I uploaded a small gallery of my favorite shots here and of course I put them up on Girls of DBB but everything can be seen for free on Wood Rocket. Go now!

Lily LaBeau For Wood Rocket

If I had infinite money I would just travel around the world taking photos and hanging out at weird motels and roadside diners with naked models all the time. Unfortunately I am not so lucky, but fortunately I do have my friends over at Wood Rocket (NSFW!).

Wood Rocket is a porn site, but they do things differently and for some reason they enjoy my work even if it’s not particularly pornographic. Wood Rocket makes hilarious original porn parodies that you have probably have seen unless you don’t have the internet. They also make other weird not-so-pornographic videos and things like porn stars reading books and answering absurd questions and a bunch of other fun stuff you guys have probably seen because so much of what they do goes viral. Also everything on their site is free and hopefully they are the future of porn because I am a big fan of everything they do.

A few years ago when they launched I was going on my epic Route 66 road trip and they helped pay for the trip and in exchange I shot a web series for them called Road Strip. It was sadly not one of the things that went viral but it was a lot of fun to do and when I was going on my west coast road trip back in June I asked them if they wanted to do something with me again and they said yes.

Wood Rocket wanted to do more photo galleries and they asked me for five galleries from my road trip. I ended up shooting Lil Brown Eyes in LA, April O’Neil at the Madonna Inn, Lucy Everleigh in Portland, Lucy and two other babes in Seattle and lastly Lily LaBeau on the side of Mt. Rainer. Wood Rocket just posted the first of the galleries and they saved the best for first or something.

Shooting Lily on Mt. Rainier was so cool and it was thanks to Kimberly Kane who had the idea and drove us up there before getting us lost and forcing me to drive. We stopped off at a little overlook thing and escaped into the forest. We were only about 50 feet from the road but it felt like we were in the middle of nowhere. I really love these photos and I am glad Wood Rocket posted them first because it’s a perfect introduction to the collaboration.

Now I uploaded a small gallery to Driven By Boredom just so I would have something to post, but you can see the entire shoot for free at Wood Rocket if you click here. I also wanted to give Girls of Driven By Boredom subscribers something so I uploaded the mini shoot Lily and I did the night before the trip to Mt. Rainier. She looks like a sexy school teacher or something and is posing in front of a painting of Mt. Rainier so it’s worth taking a look if you have Girls of DBB.

Now go look at the set of Lily LaBeau over on Wood Rocket already!
