Best Of 2016

Another year down! My photos from 2016 are properly organized and I have already moved on to 2017 although I am only a couple months in. Here is a gallery of a bunch of my favorite images from 2016 that you get to look at if you want. It’s over 200 images so it should last you a while as I travel to Ohio to take a bunch of photos of juggalos like I do every year. I will be back Sunday with far too many juggalo photos, so rejoice.

Meanwhile, let’s see how quickly I can write about an entire year worth of photos so that I can start packing for this trip. 

There are a ton of girl photos in here (even more than normal) because I had started working on my Instaxxx book towards the end of the year. There was also the release of my book Public and a topless bar crawl to promote it. Some of this girl stuff is unpublished even and I have two galleries from 2016 that still haven’t been posted. Coming soon. (One of them is already on Girls of Driven By Boredom!)

Update: I forgot to go through all the photos from my West Coast Road Trip so there’s a ton pics missing. Sorry.

One of the more impactful moments of 2016 was the night that Prince died. Spike Lee went threw a block party in his honor and I made my way to the front right as they played When Doves Cry and everyone was singing a long. It was a really amazing moment and I uploaded a video to my Instagram and somehow Good Morning America found it and bought it which made the day incredibly bittersweet. Just to keep it depressing, visiting Stonewall after the Orlando Pulse Nightclub shooting was incredibly moving for me, and the closing of the bar Jarome’s was another nail in the coffin of downtown NYC nightlife. 

Some events seem to have better photos than others: the Sailor Jerry Fleet Week party, the BBQ Films Ghostbusters party and Fool’s Gold Day Off all have more than their fair share of images in here. One of the weirder things I have covered in my life was the Kid Rock Fish Fry in Nashville (and that’s saying a lot) and even weirder news I got hired to shoot something for Teen Vogue. Oh, and I also shot a halloween party for babies. Seriously. And as always there are a ton of photos from my normal yearly gigs, AVN Awards, SXSW and of course the Gathering of the Juggalos.

Speaking of which, time to go back. See you guys in a few days.

Ava Dalush Returns

Hey look at this! It’s the last lost gallery from 2015! This is a shoot I did with Ava Dalush in LA shortly after the first time we took photos in Las Vegas. Make sure to check the other lost sets of Jenna J. Ross and Kaya & Vonka.

In between the first two shoots we did she retired from the adult industry but still wanted to take photos. I was glad to do it because not only is she great to photograph but she’s just good people. She’s hilarious and British which is a pretty standard combination and we actually went to Olive Garden for some insane reason. It was truly terrible but at least I got to take a bunch of pretty photos of her on some sort of giant hill we found in the Valley somewhere. 

I actually don’t even remember where we were because these photos are so old and it really bums me out to realize I haven’t talked to Ava in the years since. I honestly don’t know how I lost these photos because when I found them I saw that I had already edited them. I had pulled extra high res photos for Girls of Driven By Boredom too and they were already on there but somehow I forgot to post them to this site. It makes zero sense.  I clearly have no idea what I am doing. 

At least 2015 is finally done and now it’s on to 2016! I am going to try and post the “best” of 2016 tomorrow and then I head off to photograph my juggalos again somewhere in Ohio. When I get back from there I can start finish posting the lost sets from 2016 (there’s only two!) and then we can finally only be a year behind on naked girl photos! Huzzah.

Jenna J. Ross

I had this idea to put up a bunch of old sets this week, but then my girlfriend came to visit and I didn’t get anything done so this is the only one I am dropping. I am shooting this amazing Wayne’s World party tomorrow so that should be up this weekend and then I will get some more throwback sets up next week. Sorry.

Anyway, when I was organizing old photos from 2015 I found a handful of lost sets. I already posted a set of Vonka Romanov & Kaya Lin and I uploaded all of them to Girls of Driven By Boredom already. But, today I bring you this set of Jenna J. Ross.

I don’t really know how I lost this set but it seems to be the only shoot I did on that trip to LA which might explain how I lost it. I am honestly not even sure why I was in LA or why I only did one set, but it’s a pretty fun one. I was introduced to Jenna by my friend (and super weird porn director (the porn is weird, he’s honestly surprisingly normal for a guy who turns beloved cartoons into X-rated nightmares)) Lee Roy Meyers. He is based in Vegas and I was asking him about people to shoot in Vegas at some point. He said I should hit up Jenna, but we didn’t actually shoot in Vegas so I don’t even know how that happened. 

I also don’t even remember where exactly we shot these photos, but it was some sort of state park in or around LA. It is some sort of hiking trail around some sort of body of water and I remembered we were never very far from the road. We weren’t visible to passing cars or anything, but the trail wasn’t that long and honestly any second people could have come around a corner and caught us. We did a pretty good job of shooting most of the set with at least some of her clothes on so we could have covered her up if people appeared, but we got brave and did some full nude stuff as well. We are champions or something. 

After the shoot we went to some sort of chain restaurant that I had never been to before but I don’t remember what it was or what we had. Honestly I don’t remember much, but I do remember that the roll of film I shot during the day got fucked up and  some of the funnier stuff we shot didn’t come out tragically. 

I hope you enjoyed a recap about a day I barely remember from three years ago. It was very well informed and interesting. Sorry I never posted these before, Jenna I hope you forgive me although I am sure I sent you and/or posted a handful of these right after because that’s usually what I do before forgetting a shoot for three years. Lastly, I should plug Girls of Driven By Boredom again because these photos have been on there for a week and the photos there are in higher resolution and there’s a few more explicit shots on there that are exclusive to the Girls of DBB. Go sign up already

Best Of 2015

Apparently it’s Thursday so I guess this can be a “Throwback Thursday” post. Whatever the case it’s another addition of my “Best of” posts. I have spent way too much time of my life organizing every photo I’ve ever taken and I done with another yet. 2015 is in the books. Fortunately I’ve also pretty much finished 2016 too. I am getting dangerously closed to being organized.

2015 was a terrible year for me and it featured the single worst day of my life where I got served with a lawsuit on the way into my good friend DJ Jess’ funeral. On the way home I got into a car accident. A few weeks later I broke up with my girlfriend and got into a second car accident. Months of depression followed and honestly my photography suffered from it as well. My back has been fucked up from the (first) car accident as well. When I was going through some of these galleries I just kept thinking about how much worse they were than stuff I shot previously. It’s really weird how my personal state of being could impact my work so drastically.

That being said there are still some highlights. I am currently figuring out how I am going to make it to another Gathering of the Juggalos, and when going through that stuff from 2015 I realized it might have been some of my best ever juggalo coverage. I shot a record cover for one of my favorite bands. I shot some great portraits at SXSW. I had some work in an art show in LA. I got my head shaved my a 90’s teen icon at an Empire Records party. I covered some quality nerd stuff like NY Comic Con and a Bronies watch party. I shot my friend Eaddy’s band Ho99o9 a bunch of times. I shot some fun stuff for Sailor Jerry as always and the Fool’s Gold Day Off is always fun. Oh, and I had a book release party for my second book Dinner With Igor.

On the naked lady side I shot some decent stuff over the year. I really liked the shoot I did of Ava Dalush at AVN and these photos I took of Chanel Preston. I met Carter Cruise in 2015 and we did two photo shoots in LA and then she came to NYC and bought us matching NSFW tattoos for my birthday. I also met my friend January Seraph in 2015. She reached out to me when she read about my depression and after we shot together we became really close friends. Unfortunately we lost her to depression last year.  I shot my friend Lucy Everleigh for the first time in 2016 (it was her first ever shoot!) . I don’t love the photos we shot but she’s a good friend of mine now so that rules. And lastly I should mention the shoot I did with my friend Erica. It wasn’t naked but she is one of my favorite humans and I’ve known her forever and I love the photos we made. Plus she just had a baby a few days ago which is adorable. 

I also found a few unpublished shoots from 2015. I found a second shoot I did with Ava Dalush that I already edited and posted on Girls of Driven By Boredom over two years ago, but apparently forgot to post on here. I also found a really fun shoot I did with Jenna J. Ross (that I just posted on Girls of DBB today) that I have no idea how I lost. And of course I found the Kaya & Vonka shoot I posted in my last update. I am gonna try and get the Ava & Jenna shoots up this week and try and get rid of the old photos sets ASAP. I found a few when going through 2016 as well so I might make a whole week of it. 

There are a lot more photos in here this gallery but I don’t wanna keep typing this. Lot’s of nudity and madness and famous people and I need to eat. It’s a massive gallery of nearly 300 photos and a ton of links to keep you busy. Just a couple more of these posts and I am gonna have to come up with a new excuse for not having a proper portfolio site. Come back soon. There will be more photos…

Kaya Lin & Vonka Romanov

The case of the missing photos keeps getting larger. Going through photos from 2015 and so far I have found three unpublished shoots. The first one was a shoot I did with Heather Vahn in an unreasonably dark hotel room. The 35mm stuff I shot was actually really great so I forgot about the incredibly mediocre digital photos we shot. Heather is still really pretty so I figured people might want to see these photos so I threw it up on Girls of Driven By Boredom as an app exclusive set. 

The second set I found was a shoot I did with Jenna J. Ross. I actually have no idea how this one got lost. It’s a fun shoot that we shot in some sort of park in LA. She gets fully naked in public so I feel like that’s one I would have wanted to get up, but yet I never did. I edited it already and I will be getting it up sooner rather than later.

The third shoot I lost was the one you are looking at now. I shot Kaya Lin (who was Lea Hart at the time) with her real life girlfriend (at the time) Vonka Romanov for a book submission. They unfortunately didn’t make it in the book but it was months before I found out they didn’t make it and I think between the time I shot these and the time I found out they didn’t make it I just totally forgot I had never published them. Whoops.

I shot these photos in the back of my friend Tod Seelie’s place before he went and moved to LA. Tod is one of my favorite event photographers and you should probably know who he is if you don’t already. I actually have a photo of his hanging on my bedroom wall between a Tim Barber and a Ed Templeton photo. Pretty good company. 

The other thing I should mention is that Kaya and I have been talking about shooting again soon and I actually found these photos between texts with her. I texted her about a date to shoot and then I started organizing my 2015 photos and I found these before she even had time to respond. Weird coincidence.

Okay, I’ve rambled enough. Time to look at some photos. Oh, and just to plug Girls of DBB again, this set has been up there for a few day already and there’s a handful of extra photos on there that are slightly more overtly sexual than these cause you know we like to keep it classy on the main page. Right.

Meg Spectre

I met Meg Spectre for the first time when she offered to be part of the photo booth for the release party for my book Instaxxx. My friend Mel was shooting the photo booth and she though Meg would be a great model for it. I was happy to have her because I had seen Mel’s photos of her and she seemed super iconic looking. She looks like someone Warhol would shoot if he was still around.

After the release party, I talked to her about shooting a few times but it kept not happening. Finally we figured it out and I ended up shooting her at my friend Sucklord’s Chinatown art studio. Not only was Sucklord nice enough to let us use his space to shoot, but he’s also happens to be dating Meg and has been teaching her how to make her own toys. In fact Meg just released her first toys, The Spayed Squad, on Saturday. 

Also, the same day we shot these photos we did a shoot to test out my new lights that I bought for the press photos I did for Isle of Dogs. We did a quick shoot with the lights and they are available exclusively on Girls of Driven By Boredom. They’ve been up there for a while too so if you had a Girls of DBB account you’d have known all about Meg by now. 

Lastly, I felt like I should mention that one of the photos of Meg from the Instaxxx release party is in the International edition of Instaxxx and I still have a box of those left if anyone is interested in getting a copy.  

Okay, now go look at these photos of Meg and hopefully there will be even more photos of her soon because we have already talked about shooting again.

Giselle Palmer

Giselle Palmer is pretty amazing. I met her back when she was living in Austin, TX over a year ago. We talked on Twitter and I ended up doing a photo shoot with her in her apartment. Photographically it was pretty mediocre but she was great to shoot and when I planned a trip into the woods with Holly Beth a few days later we brought Giselle with us. 

I am usually in here apologizing for my photography because I generally hate everything I do, but I actually like these photos a lot. We found some sort of abandoned mill and shot inside of it. I was pretty impressed Giselle was willing to climb the walls and pose inside the mill’s window frame. We had Holly on the look out and when people walked passed us (we were right next to a popular hiking trail) we would hide behind the walls, but when Giselle was up there, not only did she have to climb a wall but she was also visible for anyone to see. Fortunately I think we made it without anyone noticing. 

A few months after we did this shoot Giselle moved to LA and became a super popular porn star and I assume lived happily ever after or something. I ran into her at AVN this past January and I hope we get to shoot again some day soon cause she was a damn pleasure to shoot.

For self promotional reasons I should mention that a bunch of photos from this trip are in my book Instaxxx and you should buy it – there’s some in my zine NOT SAFE as well and you can buy that with Instaxxx here.  Also usually I post a few exclusive shots just to Girls of Driven By Boredom, but the bonus shots were going to be of both Giselle and Holly, but I liked those too much so I just included them in this gallery too. That being said Girls of DBB had the photos 24 hours ago, has exclusive content of both girls and the photos are in high resolution. Just saying.

Claudia Cho

I met Claudia Cho ages ago via Twitter when my friend OJ introduced us. He said that we should shoot and we talked about it but then ages passed and it never happened. At some point she actually got banned from Twitter (multiple times) because she’s just totally vicious in like a reality show villain kinda way which is actually the main reason I enjoyed following her on Twitter. Once she got banned I sort of forgot about her (not completely, I still followed her on Instagram) since we had never actually met in real life and that’s just how the internet works, but then suddenly she appeared in the flesh.

The same mutual friend OJ got married last summer, and I recognized her waiting at the bus stop (they got married on a bus!) and said hi. She told me she was staying at this weird hotel in Greenpoint and we made plans to shoot before she left town again. I came over there late the next night and she was partying with some friends but they didn’t seem to mind too much when we did a naked photo shoot in front of them.

There’s some sexy photos of Claudia out there but I think this is actually the first real naked photo shoot Claudia has ever done which is kinda awesome. I didn’t really love the lighting in the place we were shooting and if you know anything about me I am too lazy to color correct shit, but you know what? If you want to see some photos of Claudia naked it’s just something you are going to have to deal with.

Also, I should mention that these photos (plus some bonus butt shots) have been available on Girls of Driven By Boredom for a minute. I wanted to post something on there for the subscribers before I went to the Galapagos and then I had a bunch of stuff to post before I got to this update. So you should probably sign up for Girls of DBB. I always post stuff in advance there, the pictures are always in higher resolution and there’s a ton of exclusive stuff like the huge gallery of 35mm photos I recently posted. Just saying

Kasey Warner & Snacks

So remember those Jillian Janson photos I just posted? These photos of Kasey Warner came out of that same pile of lost 2016 photos. I am trying to get all the lost stuff up and I think there’s only one more gallery from that trip so we are making a pretty good dent in the recently discovered galleries. I still have a couple things from 2013 too which is insane, but none of that matters right now. Let’s get to Kasey!

I met Kasey Warner at an AVN Nomination party and we pretty much became friends instantly. The next day I went over to her place and photographed her in her backyard with her puppy Snacks. Since then, I have actually stayed with her in LA twice, and she crashed with me when she came to NYC. I have done multiple photo shoots at her place and I even met my girlfriend when I was hanging out with Kasey. She’s quickly become one of my favorite people. (I cannot say the same thing about Snacks… he peed on my couch and then bit me when I tried to move him off my couch. There was a wild amount of blood for such a tiny animal.)

Anyway, I don’t have much more to say and I gotta pack cause I am leaving the country tomorrow, but just know that Kasey rules. You can also buy a copy of my book signed by her and a bunch of other porn stars and if you want to see slightly more R rated photos from this shoot you should probably sign up for Girls of Driven By Boredom. And now go look at photos…
