Alex Chance

I was introduced to Alex Chance when I heard about the Girls porn parody. Shortly after it came out Alex followed me on Twitter. I figured I had to be one of the only people followed by both Lena Dunham and the porn version of Lena Dunham. I tweeted something to that effect and ended up becoming Twitter pals with Alex.

I finally got to shoot her about a year ago when I was in LA shooting the Support, Therapy and Instability LA book release at the Ace Hotel. The day before the party I was at the Ace up in one of the hotel rooms PPP booked for the party and invited Alex along to take some photos. I don’t shoot a lot of flash photos anymore but the room was super dark and it was night time so I didn’t really have a choice. I though the photos ended up looking pretty with the flash and the mirror in the room anyway.

Also a bonus for this set is cameos from Ivy Diamond who I had photographed earlier that day and my buddy Slutlust from PPP. Good times.

I should also mention that since Alex does porn and stuff I took a bunch of extra dirtier photos of her that I saved just for Girls of Driven By Boredom. Sign up for that shit if you are a creep or just like higher resolution photos or early access or whatever. Just do it.

Parties & Polaroids

Just a quick update today before I run out to watch more hockey. Playoffs are fucking exhausting. I mostly wanted to make sure I let you know about the party I am hosting on Thursday. It’s been a long time since I hosted a party that I didn’t actually throw but my buddy Carol Sharks asked me to do it and I couldn’t say no.

Her party Baewatch is joining forces with an LA party called Candy to form some sort of Voltronesque super party at Sway (305 Spring St). By the way, I can’t tell if Baewatch is the worst name for a party ever or a really good one. Come to the party and let me know how you feel about it. It’s all lady DJs and the other host is my home girl Pebbles so it’s gonna be me and a bunch of ladies and one of the ladies boyfriends who is providing candy which seems insane but I do tattoos at parties so I guess it makes more sense than that.

I haven’t decided if I am taking photos or not but I will at least be brining my camera so if you really feel like showing me your boobs or balls or something I can at least hook you up with a quick snap or two. I mean that’s just the kinda guy I am.

On a totally different topic I uploaded a bunch of naked Polaroids to the Driven By Boredom Etsy store. Well, technically they are Fuji Instax Wide but you get the idea. I got shots of  Krysa Kaos, Ashlee Graham and polaroids of Ash Hollywood and Sasha Pain together. Two babes in one!

All the Polaroids are signed by the girls and myself and are numbered out of five. First come first served! Get on it!

If you want to see more of my naked Polaroids you can do so over on the Girls of DBB. Just saying.

See you guys tomorrow?

Raven Rockette At Rock-A-Hoola

As my life recently has been a series of one horrible event after another I figured I needed to do some shit to break out of it. I started a new personal project yesterday, I am eating a bit better, I booked a tattoo appointment I have been avoiding and I am actually going to the doctors to get a check up for the first time in 15 years. On top of that I decided I should just go ahead and publish one of my favorite photo shoots of all time.

I don’t know why I have been holding on to this for so long but this shoot I did with Raven Rockette at the abandoned Rock-A-Hoola Water Park is pretty fucking amazing. The funny thing is I already posted a shoot I did with Raven that was taken AFTER this one. I guess I was just holding it for a special occasion and this is it.

A few years ago I saw this skate video that was shot at this amazing abandoned waterpark and I knew I needed to shoot there. I looked the place up and I saw that it was right on the drive from LA to Vegas. I had passed it dozens of times and didn’t notice somehow. It also is right by Route 66 where I spent 17 days working on my first book, but yet somehow I had never heard of it before this skate video.

I was in LA for my brother’s 30th birthday and I ended up getting a gig working for Sailor Jerry at the Viva Las Vegas car show and so I hit up Raven Rockette because I knew she lived in Vegas. I pitched her on the Rock-A-Hoola idea and she was really into it so the day after Viva Las Vegas we drove half way back to LA until we came to this amazing artifact of urban decay.

It was a bit sketchy once we pulled up and realized there wasn’t any hiding the car. It was either just park it along the road or drive back in there and try to hide it behind a building or something. You could still see the car from the highway and there would be no escaping if a cop pulled up. Even once you were inside in most places it would be easy to see the naked girl and photographer walking around the abandoned water park.

We were also pretty nervous that we would run into other people but we never did. We explored for nearly an hour and I took photos of her in the empty lazy river ride, up top where the highest waterslides used to be and even climbing on to buildings that have been closed since 2004.

The whole thing was an amazing experience with an amazing model and I think Raven and I killed it. I am usually pretty underwhelmed with my work but this is one of my favorite shoots of all time. And I really hope you guys dig it as much as I did.

As per usual I held back a few of the slightly more explicit shots for Girls of Driven By Boredom. You should sign up because it’s cheap, you get photos before everyone else and there’s a lot of exclusive content and higher resolution images. Plus, as my life implodes it would be nice to have some money to pay for a fucking lawyer. Huzzah!

Anyway, go look at these photos of Raven Rockette at the abandoned Rock-A-Hoola water park because they are fucking awesome.

Veruca James Is Back

Before I get to the sexy lady photos I just wanted to mention that the memorial for DJ Jess is tonight at 7pm at Webster Hall. I hope everyone who should know about it already knows about it but just in case now you know. Hope to see everyone. Also, Shaken & Stirred is doing their final night in celebration of Jess on the 22nd. It’s at the Delancey at 9pm and is free for anyone who wants to see a burlesque show while crying into their ascots. Now on to the nudes…

It is completely insane to me that the last time I posted a full set of Veruca James was in 2011. (Watch the video of that shoot here!) Since then I have taken so many photos of Veruca and she’s become a good friend but we never did a proper photo shoot until last January. And by last January I mean 2014. I shot these photos for a magazine that didn’t end up running them and I totally forgot about them until someone posted a 35mm outtake I shot of Veruca and Janice Griffith right at the end of this shoot. I realized not only had I not posted Veruca’s set but I also didn’t post the photos of Veruca and Janice together or the first set I ever shot of Janice. Clearly I needed to fix that.

So I immediately uploaded a mini app exclusive set to the Girls of Driven By Boredom of Veruca and Janice. It’s only like 15 photos but they are really fun and most of them fairly graphic. It seemed like a perfect thing to save just for the app. I also edited all the photos of Veruca and Janice so they are ready to go.

First up, as you may have guessed from the title of this post, are the pictures of Veruca James. She is responsible for some of my favorite naked photos ever. (Like this print you can buy in my Etsy store!) This shoot was a quick one in her hotel room during the AVN Awards so she is wearing a stupid AVN wristband and let’s just say we didn’t have a hair stylist available. Fortunately Veruca is fucking adorable and you will probably dig on these photos a lot.

Also, since I shot this for an adult magazine there are a bunch of porny shots that I don’t post on this site, but you can see them all on Girls of DBB with the set of her and Janice. The app is super cheap so it’s kinda a win/win. Just saying.

Now click here to see a bunch of NSFW photos of the radical and babely Veruca James!

The Death Of New York Nightlife: RIP DJ Jess Marquis

As more and more luxury buildings move into the Lower East Side and bars close and rent goes up people are increasingly talking about the death of New York nightlife. More of my friends are moving to LA and nothing seems fun anymore. I am sure a lot of that is just me getting old, but New York nightlife took a huge hit last night with the death of DJ Jess Marquis.

I took some really fun photos at this Empire Records party last night but those shots are going to have to wait while I deal with the death of one of my first friends in NYC and a true champion of the old New York.

I have had a bunch of friends die in my life, and too many recently. I think about Ease Da Man all the time and Dust La Rock’s passing was a gut punch but as much as I miss those dudes neither could come close to the impact that Jess had on my life.

Jess’ legendary party Trash was my favorite party in New York of all time. It was one of the first parties I went to and when it was at Rififi it was as good as any weekly party could ever get. Jess also threw Rated X which was probably the most insanely fun and debaucherous party outside of Motherfucker which of course Jess also DJd. His Thursday night party “in the seedy basement of Lit”, NC-17, was one of the best places to get people naked.

Honestly, now that I think about it Jess’ parties are responsible for a massive amount of my sex life. I mean I met all the Burning Angel’s at his parties and they formed my dating pool for years. I met my first girlfriend in NYC at Trash and Jess even through a party for the 10th anniversary of me losing my virginity!

Jess threw every birthday party I had in NYC including my 27th birthday party which was easily the most insane night of my life and my 30th birthday party which was also the last birthday party I ever had. He threw Driven By Boredom anniversary parties and was one of the reasons I went to the AVN Awards for the first time. He just had such a big impact on my life.

I wouldn’t be doing anything I am doing today if it weren’t for him. I started nightlife photography to take photos at his parties. He might have been the first person ever to pay me to do it, even if it was just in drink tickets or something. I wouldn’t know porn people if it weren’t for that AVN trip. I started shooting for the Village Voice because they loved all the nudity I got at crazy parties. Nearly every one of those parties Jess threw.

I always told Jess how corny I thought he was. He was this drama kid turned nightlife icon who was so over the top about everything. I am so apathetic and Jess was the exact opposite and his love for burlesque and Morrissey made me roll my eyes. I blame him for the fact that I know all the lyrics to a dozen fucking Smiths songs. He was just so fucking silly and would make me take photo after photo of him and wouldn’t tell anyone he was probably 5 years older than they all thought he was. I gave him shit for all of it, but I would kill to care about anything as much as he did all of this shit.

I can still remember all the lines he delivered night after night at his many many parties. “What’s up you sexy motherfuckers?!” and “Two for one drinks at the bar! If you buy one you get one free!” are the first two that pop in my mind right now but I know I will never have to worry about forgetting his voice. And I will never forget his face because he never aged and I have more photos of him than probably any other person I have ever photographed.

Speaking of, Jess was a great nightlife photographer and I used to look at his work every day when I was first shooting party photos. He just put down the camera at some point to focus on music but for my money he was as good as anyone capturing the downtown scene in New York. I am not sure what’s going to happen to his stuff, but I would kill to get a copy of his hard drive so I could do a book of his nightlife photos.

In recent years I haven’t spent a lot of time with Jess. He stopped doing Trash to focus on doing his own music. He wanted to tour and stop playing the same new wave songs every single night. He was still throwing tons of parties but I can’t stand going into the city anymore so I never saw him. I honestly couldn’t tell you the last time we hung out but I was following all the shit he was doing and I know he was on top of my shit too.

Jess was the defender of nightlife. He was responsible for giving wave after wave of young kids coming to New York a sense of what NYC was like back in the 70s and 80s and making us understand that it was our responsibility to carry on that tradition and make sure to get as weird and as fucked up as humanly possible.

Jess I fucking love you man and it fucking kills me that I am never going to get to take your picture again.

Today I spent an hour pulling tons of photos I took of Jess. There are a lot of these that aren’t great photos and there are so many great ones I couldn’t find. At some point I just couldn’t look at photos of Jess anymore. That being said I pulled nearly 80 photos of him and I hope everyone who loved him, and I know there are a lot of you, gets a chance to check out this gallery.

Click here to see some of my photos of DJ Jess Marquis from pretty much 2008 on. The earlier stuff is terrible.

RIP DJ Jess

America Is Back

What seems like a decade ago (but was really probably like 8 years) I met a lady named America at some random dance party on the Lower East Side. She instantly became one of my favorite people to photograph but then for some insane reason she moved to fucking Orlando.

In the years that followed I got down to Orlando a couple times and I was lucky enough to get to hang out with America again. The first time we went on some fun adventures but I didn’t get to take any great photos. You see, my camera was broken in an incident where I helped trash the penthouse of a Miami hotel so I went to a flea market in Orlando and bought a plastic camera that took just fucking horrible photos and bummed me out so hard when I got them developed.

A year or two later I was back in Orlando and the guy who hired me (You still owe me money motherfucker!) got America and I into Disney World and we took tons of awesome photos and she cemented herself as one of my top three favorite people to photograph of all time. (She is also one of the most fun people to hang out with of all time, so it works out well.)

After that I never went back to Orlando again and she moved anyway. She had been living in weird midwestern places that I don’t understand and eventually landed in Austin, TX. I keep in touch with her a bit through social networks and the like but I hadn’t seen her in years and somehow I missed the fact that she was living in Austin, making cool movies under this insane new name Erica. Fortunately for everyone I ran into her in the street randomly and we got to hang out again!

It was so awesome to see her again and we got to eat tacos and fun stuff like that, but most importantly as far as you guys are concerned we got to take more photos! And these photos are extra sexy and stuff because we were in a big bed instead of an amusement park for kids!

Erica is a legit actress and stuff so she has agents and the like that don’t want her naked on my website, which is a totally reasonable thing I guess, so these photos are all fairly safe for work, even though they are also totally babely. I did hook you up though with a handful of extra sexy shots over on the Girls of Driven By Boredom.

In fact, in honor of getting to shoot Erica again I teamed up with my friends over at Me In My Place to cross promote and I am giving you guys a coupon code for 20% off Girls of DBB! The code is “america” and you can use it to see tons of outtakes, extra sexy shots and high resolution versions of the stuff already on this site. It’s really cheap and now even cheaper and totally worth checking out. It works as an app on your smart phone, but also works on desktops and laptops and probably weird shit like Chromebooks and Surface 3s.

I have some more good news too. America is coming to NYC for pretty much all of April and clearly I will have to take a million more photos of her being awesome. Huzzah.

Now click here to see all the super babely photos of the fucking amazing America!

Boobs Of Bushwick – 3.3.15

You’d think a party with more nudity than a strip club would have been less violent. When I walked into the Rookery last night for the first annual Boobs of Bushwick party the first person I saw was bleeding from the face. Hours later, BoB’s own Kate Chip had her nose broken by a lady who was for some reason defending a dude calling people sluts which is the least chill thing ever especially at a party about boobs. Despite the drama the party was fucking awesome and very few people had shirts.

If you didn’t see my Boobs of Bushwick Bar Crawl photos, BoB is a Tumblr started by Chip that features Kate’s friends boobs in random bars around Bushwick. As someone who loves both public nudity and all boobs I am a huge supporter of the blog. It’s a equal opportunity blog with as many dudes as women but there’s no political statement or anything. It’s just fun. You can read Chip’s interview with the Village Voice about it here.

Anyway, Boobs of Bushwick threw it’s first annual party last night and I got to play both photographer and host to the thing and I brought out a ton of scumbags and took a lot of photos. My dude Prince Terrence played music as did DJ DLNGR.  The party was packed all night and the topless lady to creepy dude with camera phone was slightly better than you would expect. I had a blast.

I think that’s it but make sure you check out BoB and then look at my photos from last night. They are obviously not even slightly safe for work. Oh and shout out to booze sponsors Braven Brewing Company, Zachariah Harris and Tito’s for making everyone extra fun. Also just gonna sneak this in here but if you want to see more boobs you should sign up for Girls of DBB.

Now click here to see all my photos from the first annual Boobs of Bushwick party at The Rookery!

Boobs Of Bushwick Bar Crawl – 2.23.14

Tomorrow Tuesday the 3rd I am throwing a party with Boobs of Bushwick at the Rookery in Bushwick Brooklyn. You need to come to it because it should be a wild time.

Okay, now let’s back up. I met Kate Chip at the Dinner With Igor book release party. Prince Terrence was DJing and told me I had to meet her because she runs a Tumblr called Boobs of Bushwick and she had her shirt off before I could even say hi. Clearly we have common interests.

I checked out the Tumblr and I was all about it. Kate asked me to be involved in the first annual Boobs of Bushwick party and of course I said yes. Prince Terry was DJing and the Rookery is pretty near my apartment and there will be boobs so how could I say no?

I then came up with an idea of how we could promote the party! We would do a Boobs of Bushwick bar crawl! Kate grabbed a bunch of her friends including two of my old friends and we all met at the Rookery. From there we walked to The Bodega and then to Montana’s Trail Bar and then ended up at Tandem to end the night.

I took a ton of topless photos in the bars and outside and it was so fucking cold out that we had to run out, shoot and run back in. It was a lot of fun anyway. Even some random stranger at Tandem got involved. It was kinda great.

Anyway, it is totally legal to be topless in NYC and while we could probably get in trouble for promoting it or being topless in a bar I think it’s a pretty good excuse to get topless and drunk at the same time. So come to the Rookery tomorrow and drink booze and take your clothes off and I will take photos of you unless you don’t want me to. Whatever the case if you are a dude try not to be creepy but you can be topless too. All manor of boobs are welcome!

See you guys tomorrow! 

And now look at all the NSFW photos from the Boobs of Bushwick Bar Crawl!!

Ps. All these photos plus a few bonus ones are are available in high resolution on Girls of DBB!

Amarna Miller & Silvia Rubi

Headed to New Orleans today for a mini vacation with my lady friend. My whole life is a vacation so I don’t really do relaxing very well but I am going to fucking try. I am sure I will take some photos and we also picked a terrible time to go (50 degrees and rainy all week!) but I wouldn’t expect any updates this week. 

I wanted to get something ready to go so I edited one of the last shoots I did because it was still on my computer and not a hard drive. It actually was on my camera’s memory card for a week because I didn’t shoot anything for a while after I got back from my most recent trip to LA. 

Anyway, I met these two cute Spanish porn stars, Amarna Miller and Silvia Rubi  at the Adult Entertainment Expo in Vegas. I posted the picture I took of them and mentioned on Twitter that I wanted to shoot them. They got back to me right away and a few hours later they were naked on a roof at the Hard Rock. (You can see those photos right now on Girls of DBB!)

I hung out with them a bunch over the weekend and probably took way too many photos. I wanted to shoot them again when we were all in LA the following week so they came over to my weird hotel room and we took a ton of pictures of them just fucking around.

This is one of those shoots where the quality of the photography doesn’t really matter. I was shooting with flash and they were just wrestling each other and we were all laughing and just having a weird time. It was a lot of fun and I think we got some great photos — both funny and sexy ones — that are pretty mediocre photographically. 

It actually reminds me a lot of one of my favorite sets ever, with Skin and Asphyxia (also in Vegas!). They just got high and I took random photos of them wrestling. This was pretty much the same except Silvia and Amarna had beers instead of weed. All of it really fun/funny.

This set is huge and the edit I posted on Girls of DBB is even bigger. It has 22 extra photos that are extra explicit and all of them in high resolution. That’s like a whole bonus set with nothing but vagina shots. Good times.

Okay, I edited these photos and am writing this post on a train from DC to NYC and this is getting kinda long so I am gonna go now.

But click here to see all the photos of Spanish babes Silvia Rubi and Amarna Miller wrestling naked in a creepy Hollywood motel room!

Ps. None of these photos are even slightly safe for work. This one photo preview below is the best I could do.
