Moni Love Returns

I met Moni Love in Vegas (speaking of Vegas, go buy my book!) a couple of AVNs ago and we did a photo shoot at the Circus Circus hotel. I checked in there a day after the AVNs were over just so I could have a place to edit photos before I drove to LA the next morning. My friend had a 4am flight so she just wanted a place to store her bags so we split the $25 it costs to stay at the Circus Circus on a Sunday night.

Anyway, the point is that the photos were mediocre because we were shooting in an ugly hotel room at midnight so clearly we needed to shoot again. Fast forward to March and I was staying on my friend Mike‘s couch in Austin, TX for South By Southwest. Moni lives a couple hours away so she came down to check out the festival and to take some photos with me. We shot in Mike’s guest house/ garage area that is just covered in stuff and smelled like gasoline. They told me I could sleep in there but I opted to share the couch with two giant dogs instead. I figured getting no sleep on the couch was better than dying from fumes from motorcycle fuel.

So yeah, we shot, there are photos and you should look at them. You should also go give money to Moni when she is doing her web cam thing and she’s also a Suicide Girl hopeful so you could lurk her there. I also should point out that there are a bunch of spread leg shots on my app that you could do creepy things to yourself with if you had my app. You should have my app.

What Happens In Vegas…

On the road trip I went on a few months ago I picked up a cheap touristy Las Vegas photo album at a flea market. It was $2 and I figured it would be hilarious to fill it with some of the craziest photos I have ever taken in Vegas. It just seemed hilarious to have this tacky photo album on my coffee table and when you open it it’s just filled with naked porn stars and people doing drugs and just total fucking insanity.

So a few weeks ago I went through all the 35mm photos I have taken over the last 7 years in Las Vegas. I’ve been there for six or seven AVN Awards, on assignment for Hustler, to cover some Rockabilly event and a couple of trips just for fun. In all it’s probably about a dozen trips to the sin city that I pulled images from. Once I compiled 300 totally insane photos I edited it down to the best and craziest 200 35mm snapshot for the album.

I made this album and kept it on my coffee table and just as expected it was a hit, but what I didn’t expect was the reaction from every single person who saw it. Everyone thought I should make more of them and sell them and suddenly an idea was born!

Since then I have purchased a bunch of corny Vegas photo albums off eBay and Amazon and I reached out to a bunch of people who have bought my work in the past. I ended up selling four super limited edition versions of the photo album that includes 100 photos for $250, but I also wanted a cheaper version that more people could afford.

I found the perfect Vegas photo albums for the slightly less limited edition. They contain 64 photos and they are displayed horizontally which works even better for me because I tend to shoot mostly horizontal images. They are also have four images to a spread which makes them skinnier compared to the two per spread editions I started with. They look really nice and I am selling them for $150.

So I have now put 10 copies of the smaller $150 version in my Etsy store. You get 64 4″x6″ prints which is close to $2 a print. The album comes signed and while not numbered I can’t imagine that more than 20 of these will ever be available. Aside from being a really cool conversation piece it’s probably a decent investment incase I am still a mildly well respected photographer 10 years from now.

The book features photos published in Hustler and Vice as well as a ton of unpublished photos. It includes naked shots of a ton of adult actresses including Charlotte Stokely, Kimberly Kane, Stoya, Skin Diamond, Bonnie Rotten, Veruca James, Raven Rockette, Janice Griffith, April O’Neil, Asphyxia, Lilly LaBeau, Zoe Voss, Ash Hollywood, Samantha Bentley and many more. It also includes some really crazy other photos that for some reason don’t involve any nudity although there’s a lot of images in the album that are even more graphic than the stuff I post on this site.

Lastly if I sell at least 7 copies in the next two weeks I am going to book a trip to Vegas and send everyone who buys a copy a postcard from there and send everyone four more prints from the rolls of film I shoot there. So there’s an added crowd funding thing there that may give you more reason to buy a copy and gives me a good excuse to go back to the west coast for a few days.

So yeah, buy this album. It’s kinda fun. Oh, and I have one final copy of the $250 limited edition version left too. Contact me if you want it!

Below are a few safe for work outtakes from the 300 I printed to get down to the 64 that will be in the book. Click through to the album to see a few of the NSFW samples that will be in the actual album.

Baking With Courtney

As you may know I am working on a series of food books. The first should be out sooner rather than later although it’s taking WAY longer than I expected. While putting together early edits one of the things I wanted was naked photos of a chef so I went to the internets to see if anyone knew any sexy chefs. My friend Courtney hit me up and while I knew of her as a photographer, I didn’t know that she also runs a side business selling “special” baked goods.

Courtney is really cool looking with her awesome gap tooth and she seems constantly positive and fun even if it makes you want to murder her when you are trying to get work done and/or sharing a house with her for a week during SXSW. I figured shooting her would be great and I was totally right.

So I went over to her place and she just cooked some sort of sugary chocolate Check Mix madness and I just took photos. Basically we just hung out for an hour and once in a while I would tell her to take off some more clothes and try to get her to laugh cause she looks awesome laughing. It was a lot of fun.

Obviously I am not going to link you to Courtney’s 420 friendly side business but if you ever get the chance to order something from  her I would recommend it.

All these photos went up in high (no pun intended) resolution on the DBB Girls app yesterday so you would have seen them already if you had my amazing app.

New Stokely Road Strip; New Signed Polaroids

My Route 66 road trip adventure happened over a year ago, but the video series Road Strip keeps on trucking… The last episode featuring Charlotte Stokely went up today. She’s the most entertaining human ever and she is unreasonably attractive so these are some of the best episodes, but don’t worry, we have some great ones with Ash Hollywood coming up next! I’ve seen nearly all the rest of the episodes and you guys should be excited.

To celebrate the last Stokely episode I put three Polaroids of her, signed by both of us, in my Etsy store. They were taken at the end of my Route 66 trip when I ended up in LA. I need to get some extra footage of Charlotte so I stopped by her place and shot some Polaroids of her on her couch because when you hang out with Stokely if you don’t take her photo a lot you are fucking up. I also updated

I also put a bunch of additional Polaroids in my Etsy store including shots of Theresa Manchester, Calico LaneSasha Pain and Ashlee Graham. Plus there are still Polaroids available from Skin Diamond, Ash Hollywood, Janice Griffith and even Alysha Nett. And, on top of that I added 8″x10″ prints of two of my favorite summer time photos since summer is about to tragically end soon.

Plus I put all these Polaroids plus some extra, never been published Polaroids on the Girls of Driven By Boredom app… so if you like that kinda thing sign up already!

Anyway, you should watch this Road Strip episode because it features an excessive scene of Charlotte lotioning herself in my rental car, a giant Solo cup AND the greatest thing on Route 66… The Catoosa Blue Whale!!! Seriously the whale is the fucking best.

So click here to watch the new Road Strip Episode (catch up here!) and click here to go buy some shit. These things are important!

Throwback Thursday: Best Of 2009

Over the past I have no fucking clue how long I have been organizing every photo I have taken since I moved to NYC in 2006. The idea is to eventually have a big fucking folder of images with all the best stuff from the last 8 years and to have things organized so that I can pull images that I need. I also notice I have found a ton of stuff that didn’t stand out at the time, for example just today I found a photo of Adam Scott I took before I even knew who Adam Scott was.

Since I started this project I have done a great job of organizing my 35mm archives. I worked pretty much 10 hours a day on that for a couple weeks and got it done. The digital stuff is a lot harder to do because of the sheer volume of the images. On a slow month I might shoot 4000 photos but during an event like South By Southwest I might shoot twice that many in five days. Getting through stuff has been fun, but I can only do so much a day without going insane.

Just today I finished going through 2009 which is a pretty serious accomplishment because in early 2008 I had a shitty camera so could go through that stuff very quickly and by the end of 2010 I had started shooting a bit less nightlife. In 2009 however I was going out nearly every night and sometimes shooting two or three events a night. So despite having more than five years to go I think I am nearly halfway through my digital archives. The last couple years are pretty organized anyway…

So, in celebration of finishing 2009 I decided a Throwback Thursday post was in order. I have put up a pretty massive gallery (over 300 images!) from 2009 that includes a lot of my favorite shots from the year. It’s probably less than a third of the images I pulled, but it gives you a nice look at one of my best years photographically. It’s amazing to see how far I progressed. The early 2009 stuff is terrible while the late 2009 work is better than anything I am doing now. It’s inspired me to work harder when shooting nightlife and makes me miss how much fun I used to have.

In this gallery you will find mostly party photos although there is some random stuff thrown in including a few old school naked girls in bathroom photo shoots. There are a ton of photos from the party Playhouse at Cain that was a really great party both photographically and on a hot babes I made out with kinda level. Unfortunately they stopped paying me and still fucking owe me money. There are also a bunch of images in here of kinda celebrity stuff or blast from the past images that are noteworthy for whatever reason. They might not all be fantastic photographically but they are cool to look at.

I think the big winner of 2009 was Roxy Cottontail who through two parties that were some of the most fun times I had in ’09. Check out her birthday party that year and the Pepsi party with Diplo that she through that year. Both great events. Speaking of Diplo… I photographed him and Steve Aoki a weird amount of times in 2009. Ninjasonik comes up a lot too and I shot a couple of great shows by Monotonix and Spank Rock who both happened to play the best Siren Fest I ever went to. A lot of girls show up a bunch in 2009 Alex Magnetic, Jocelyn and Chloe are particularly muse-worthy. Since then Alex was my intern and Chloe is a super famous model so that all rules.

Honestly there is way too much in here to cover… tons from Webster Hall when Trash and Boys & Girls were both happening on the same night… a bunch of big events like SXSW, Sundance, AVN Awards… live bands… burlesque… zombie crawls… comedy… fashion… Driven By Boredom tattoos… the list goes on and on.

But lastly I will mention there are a lot of pictures of my good friend Ease DaMan who sadly died recently. I met him in 2009 and took so many photos of the guy that year. He was so fun and so photogenic, rarely had his shirt on and once I showed up to a  party and the cops had shut it down because a fight broke out and Ease fucking bit someone. We all miss you tons Ease. Rest in peace.

I have no idea how I am going to come up with selects since I love so many of these photos, so I am just gonna put some random shit below here. Just make sure you look at the full gallery… and yeah, these photos are significantly NSFW.

Dana DeArmond Returns

Way back in 2012 I photographed Dana DeArmond at our friend Chris’ amazing apartment. The dude collects musical instruments and modern furniture and his place was perfect for a photo shoot. Dana is one of my favorite models ever so clearly we killed it. In fact we took such fantastic photos that I didn’t want to post them. I wanted to see them in print. The set really had a retro Penthouse vibe so I pitched them to Penthouse right away. They weren’t really interested so I just sat on them a while. A few months later I started working for Hustler Magazine.

This set of Dana was pretty much the first thing I pitched to Hustler but they wanted to accompany it with an interview and for some reason that didn’t happen for a while. Nearly two years after we took the photos the images were finally published with an interview in the June 2014 issue of Hustler and is probably came out the best of anything I have shot for them.

I have shot Dana before but this by far my favorite thing we have done together and it’s honestly one of my favorite shoots of all time. Because I love it so much, and because there are so many explicit shots I am doing a special 3 day discount on the Girls of Driven By Boredom App. First time users can sign up using the code “dana” for 20% off through Wednesday. You need to see the full set and since I don’t post “spread” shots on here, you need the app to see everything. Plus the images are in twice the resolution so clearly it’s worth checking out. The app works on all smart phones and even just on your web browser. So sign up!

Special thanks to Chris Nelson and Kimberly Kane for their help on the shoot and thanks to Dana for her patience in the two years that it took for these photos to see the light of day. Now go look at these NSFW photos, they are very worth your time!

Sheltering Sky – 8.20.14

The other day I was crawling through my photo archives as I have been doing semi constantly for the last few months and I was thinking about how much fun I used to have shooting nightlife. Right then I got a text from Prince Terrence and he offered me a job shooting his Wednesday night party on the rooftop of the new McCarren Hotel in Williamsburg. Normally the money wouldn’t have been enough to get me to leave the house, but I was feeling like I needed to start enjoying fun again so I took him up on the offer.

I headed to Sheltering Sky last night and pretty much immediately felt the dread of having to shoot party photos. I sort of meandered about taking a few shots here and there, but at some point one of the hosts put a Red Bull in my hand, I chugged it and got to work. By the end of the night I was having a blast and was bummed that the party only went to 2am.

At some point in the night Terry gave me a pretty inspiring lecture about how New York’s party scene sucks right now because we let it suck. It’s up to all the people throwing parties when things were fun to start doing it again. I sort of figured parties sucked recently because I got old and didn’t know what was going on, but Terry is out there every night still and he assured me parties are mediocre everywhere and we need to do a better job of making shit fun again. I am on my fourth cup of coffee right now and I think he has a point. Maybe I do want to start going out again and grinding like I give a shit, at least for a couple more years before I officially become the creepy old dude.

Anyway, the party ended up being a lot of fun and I met a bunch of cute girls and hung out with a bunch of cute girls I have known for ages too. I ran in to Amy Rose who is pretty much the most fun human ever who just sold a book and was out to celebrate with a friend who just sold a TV show. I saw one of my favorite people Olivia who I pretty much spent all summer last year hanging out with who is well on her way to becoming a super famous movie star and  fortunately for you guys I ran into the museworthy Lena Marquise who said goodbye to me by pulling up her skirt for a photo before walking out the door. So yeah, this gallery is NSFW.

But yeah, maybe I will be doing more party photos soon. I kinda miss it. At the very least I am sure I will be back at Sheltering Sky before long. I hope to see you guys out!

Meet Alex.

Hi guys, this is Alex. She is a total babe. I met her a couple years ago through a mutual babe friend. We quickly decided we should do a photo shoot at Coney Island but then it didn’t happen that summer, or the next summer… most people would have given up, but when it comes to photographing cute ladies I am relentless and it finally paid off!

Several weeks ago Alex finally had some free time and we took the train down to Coney Island. I had some expired film that I wanted to experiment so we took a few photos on the train. They didn’t come out very well but I included two of them in this set. I then put a roll of black and white film in my SLR camera and had new color film in my point and shoot. I ended up shooting three or four rolls of color, a full roll of black and white and the end of the expired roll. In all I ended up with a nice gallery of 35mm photos of Alex that I think you are going to dig.

As soon as we got off the train we went directly to Nathan’s Famous because a trip to Coney Island without a Nathan’s hot dog is sacrilegious. From there we hit the beach and it was pretty funny to see Alex in her bikini walking around with me wearing all black and boots on the sand. Some teenage boys wanted to know if she was a famous model and if they could take pictures with her.

From there we clearly hit some rides… first the Cyclone because it’s the best roller coster in the world. It’s completely terrifying and at least three people have died on it in my lifetime. Our best photo opportunity came on the Wonder Wheel and we shot a few topless shots on there which makes it the fourth ferris wheel in one calendar year that I photographed someone topless on – Navy Pier in Chicago, City Museum in St. Louis and Santa Monica Pier in CA round out the list.

After that we grabbed some funnel cake and some absurd drinks, got Alex topless on the boardwalk and finally headed home. It was a really day and I got some nice photos of an awesome babe that I have been trying to photograph for ages. Hopefully another two years won’t go by before I get to photograph her again. Thanks for the adventure Alex!

Now click here to see the full gallery of 35mm images of Alex at Coney Island!

Ps. These photos are available in high resolution on the Girls of Driven By Boredom app!

Hustler Club Las Vegas

I don’t remember when it was that I shot these photos exactly but I do remember that the night before I shot an incredibly fancy event in LA honoring Oliver Stone. I had to wear a suit and it was pretty much as corporate of a gig as I do. A few hours later I was in a car driving to Las Vegas to shoot a bunch of strippers for Hustler Magazine. That’s sort of a perfect summation of my professional life.

There’s not really much to say about these photos except the are semi documentary but mostly posed photos of Hustler Club dancers and some of the other club employees. The club was actually open when we took these so the ones at the bar and in the club were taken with customers watching. We also took some photos outside and it was pretty freezing… not like actually freezing but freezing for Las Vegas and I am pretty sure the girls wanted to kill me.

I don’t go to strip clubs but I do have a lot of dancer friends (several that work/ have worked at this exact club) and I really want to do some sort of documentary photo project on dancers that sort of compares different aspects of the industry from feature dancers to amateurs and everything in between. I feel like the whole thing is pretty interesting so it was cool to get a shot to do a little bit of that even if most of this stuff was posed.

Anyway, there are a bunch of pictures in this gallery and 99% of them are NSFW so enjoy that!

Now click here to see all of the outtakes from my Girls of Hustler Club Vegas shoot for Hustler Magazine.

Ps. Pick up the May 2014 issue of Hustler to see the final product of this shoot. And high resolution photos from this shoot are available on the Girls of DBB app.
