Magdalene At The Movies

I still have four photoshoots I haven’t published from 2017. I don’t really have great excuses for why I haven’t published them yet, but two of those are coming right now. In October 2017 I went on a trip to Florida that didn’t go exactly as planned, but I still shot a bunch of stuff. I had to be in Miami for a Dolphins game, but I really wanted to check out the weirdness that is the Sausage Castle in Orlando and I had an idea. I had met Magdalene when we worked on a Gathering of the Juggalos story together for Brooklyn Vegan and we had done a photo shoot I really liked when she was visiting NYC. I knew she went to school near Tampa, FL and also really wanted to go to the Sausage Castle so I hit her up to see if she wanted to do a mini road trip together. I would fly to Tampa and then we would drive to the Sausage Castle and then down to Del Ray, FL where I have a few friends I wanted to see and take a ton of photos along the way. She was in.

Things got screwed up a bit on the way as it rained the whole drive from Tampa to Orlando so we couldn’t really do any of the road trip style shoots I normally do and she bailed on driving me to Del Ray which meant I had to take damn bus and then when I got to Del Ray one of my friend’s was in Tampa and another blew me off. Fortunately my third friend (who I run a non-profit with) was around and took me to dinner and we both went to Miami for the Dolphins game so it wasn’t really a big deal. Still I was kinda frustrated about the whole thing which is probably why I am not publishing these until now. But I am not great at holding a grudge and Magda is really hot so not only am I not pissed about it anymore but she lives in LA now so I am sure I will be bugging her to shoot again next time I am in LA.

Aaaaaannnyywaaay, the important thing here is the day before we drove to Orlando. I decided to stay in Clearwater, FL which is pretty near the Tampa airport and also home to the headquarters of Scientology which I absolutely had to visit. That shit was as crazy as you would imagine and there was security everywhere. It was great. Personally if I was running a cult I would try and make my headquarters look slightly less creepy, but maybe that’s why I don’t run a cult. 

So the first of the two shoots we did was in Clearwater, at my terrible motel picked specifically for it’s Florida man vibe. There was a Dolphin painted on my door. It was wonderful. We took photos at like midnight though so there was no natural light and if you know anything about me it’s that I can’t color balance for shit so that’s why these photos don’t get their own post. There are a few nice shots and Magda is a babe, but overall they aren’t that great.

The greatness happened at our next location (okay, these photos are terribly lit and color balanced too, but at least the location was amazing). When I landed in Tampa I had hours to kill before I met up with Magda so I let the internet know I was in town and looking for someone to photograph or something to do. One of my Instagram followers reached out and said they were the manager of a movie theater and I could shoot there if I did it after midnight. I figured that they managed a small art house theater but when I got there it was a massive multiplex. It was amazing.

As I mentioned the light was terrible and in some cases there was just way too little of it. God I wish I had the camera that I have now because that thing pretty much shoots in the dark. It wouldn’t have helped much as far as the mixed lighting and ugly overhead lights but it would have been amazing for the actual theaters where even with the house lights up it was way too dark. Even it most of the photos aren’t great the experience and a few of the shots I got made it so worth it. I also shot this little video thing which was pretty fun.

Okay, this post is way too long already but I need to plug the pay site again. If you want to see a full gallery of shots from our trip to the Sausage Castle you can find them on Girls of DBB exclusively (I posted the gallery a while ago so you need to scroll a bit). There are also some bonus fully nude photos of Magdalene from this shoot there. All in high res as per usual. And now for the free photos…

Khloe Kapri, Kasey Warner & Damia

If you are a regular reader of this site you might know by now that Kasey Warner is one of my favorite people. I have taken her photo a bunch, but more than that we are good friends and until she got a cat she’d always let me stay with her when I was in LA. (I guess she’d still let me crash, I am just real allergic to cats.) This has come in very handy like the time when I ended up shooting her and three other girls at her house for my Instaxxx book. Last time I was in town, I couldn’t crash with her but we still hung out a few times and we took a bunch of photos.

At the time Kasey was dating Khloe Kapri and Khloe’s friend Damia was staying with them, so when I went over to get lunch with Kasey I met Damia and immediately wanted to take her photo. I ended up shooting her and Kasey when Khloe was at work. I then came back a few days later to shoot Khloe by herself and Damia was still over so after the shoot I shot all three of them together. And then after that I ended up shooting Damia by herself. So in total I four shoots with these three girls which is honestly fantastic productivity. When you add that first shoot I did with Kasey, the ones I did with Kristen Scott and Cassidy Klein (Girls of DBB exclusive) and that group shoot for the book that’s eight shoots all shot at Kasey’s place. That’s kinda amazing. 

I should also mention that Khloe and Damia are awesome too. I convinced Damia to get on Twitter and I feel like we talk all the time now, and Khloe I shot in Vegas and I feel like she’s one of the few models that really enjoy the rawness of my photos. I think a lot of people like my work until they are the subject of it and then they suddenly wish I used photoshop, but she seems to really love my work and the way I have presented her in it and that honestly makes me really happy. Can’t wait to photograph them both again. 

Okay, so here’s the first of the galleries. More to come sooner or later. I just don’t really want to post them all back to back or anything like that. These were taken in the little guest house situation in Kasey’s back yard. Oh, I should also mention that photographing three people in relatively low light is annoying, because someone is always out of focus or has their eyes closed, but at least these girls are all goofy as fuck so even the awkward photos are pretty fun anyway.

And as per usual there are some exclusive, slightly more explicit, shots on Girls of Driven By Boredom which you could sign up for if you wanted. Just saying.

Jade Baker

I met Jade Baker on Twitter because I kept seeing her liking my Tweets and then I would go lurk her profile and I did this like 5 times before I realized that I had lurked the exact same person 5 times and clearly she was someone I should be following because if just her Twitter avatar got my attention, clearly she had something going for her.

A few months later I was in LA and she was one of the first people I hit up. I had to shoot her and I am super glad I did because we took a ton of great photos. She ended up in my last book and then I randomly ran into her in Vegas and we took some nice photos in all of 5 minutes while she was going to grab something from her hotel room.

Long story short is that she is real pretty and I am psyched she exists because we keep taking good photos and hopefully we will continue to do so in the future. I got a big list of people to bother next time I am in LA and she is real high on it. 

Oh, I should probably mention that there are a number of extra explicit photos of her on Girls of Driven By Boredom that you could look at if you were inclined. All the photos are in much higher resolution and they’ve been on there for more than 24 hours. Girls of DBB always gets the photos first. Go sign up. It’s cheap and keeps me from having to get a real job.

54 Photos I Don’t Hate

A few months ago I posted on here about a Kickstarter I did for a book of photos I don’t hate. I wanted to do a small project for Kickstarter’s Make 100 project where you create an edition of just 100 copies of something. It’s basically a creative prompt they do every year and I thought it would be a fun thing to do using photos I had already shot so it wouldn’t be a ton of work. It was still a bunch of work but I shipped it on time and made a little money and created something I am proud of so it all worked out.

I finally shipped the last of the books this week. I did a special edition of 25 that came with one of 5 prints and they came in some special packaging that I couldn’t silkscreen until I made sure the books and prints fit inside the envelopes. They ended up looking really great and hopefully everyone who spent the extra money on the special edition feels like it was worth it. The special edition also had 4 extra pages and even a different name

Since the book has come out, a ton of people have asked me about getting a copy but since I only made 125 copies it’s all sold out (well almost, I have a few extras but not selling them in case anyone’s book gets lost in the mail). I still want people to see this thing so I decided just to upload a gallery of all 54 photos in the special edition.  If you have the regular edition you can try and figure out which 4 photos you don’t have. You could then print them out and glue them into the book like some sort of maniac. 

In related news, I just printed a dozen new postcards and probably half of them are from this book. If you want to get a set of 13 postcards you can do so here. They ship after May 17th. 

Okay, so that’s a wrap on this project. If you got a book I hope you love it and if not I hope you dig the photos. Check out the gallery of 54 images below.

Nikki Hearts

Many years ago someone introduced me to Nikki Hearts and I made some stupid joke as I tend to do and for years she thought I was a dick and I would run into her all the time and we would sort of pretend we didn’t know each other. I hate having awkward shit like that in my life so I finally just walked up to her and was like “Hey, I feel like you probably hate me but it was a misunderstanding and I wasn’t intentionally being a dick and all our friends are friends so like maybe we could be friends too” and then we were and it was great because Nikki is awesome. 

Last time I was in LA we finally took photos for the first time in the near decade I have known her and while the photos are technically “fine” people seem to love them because Nikki is one of the coolest looking people on the planet. Photographing people smoking weed is pretty much the easiest thing to do because smoke photographs well and when you add that to Nikki just being a rad babe you are gonna get some good pictures. 

After we shot these photos Nikki needed some press photos so we headed down to Echo Park and shot some more photos of her just smoking and looking real awesome. In the middle of that shoot she ended up just getting way too high and we had to stop taking photos which is honestly hilarious, and not the first time that’s happened to me. 

I also sort of shot Nikki again in Vegas in January when I went over to her hotel room to photograph her girlfriend Leigh Raven. Most of these photos are exclusive to Girls of Driven By Boredom, but some shots of the two of them ended up in my Girls of AVN gallery this year. 

Speaking of Girls of DBB, there are some more explicit shots from my shoot with Nikki on there, PLUS the entire safe for work shoot we did for her press photos. It doesn’t have any nudity, but the photos are cool anyway and it seemed like a good bonus gallery. And as always the photos are in double the resolution over there on the paid site. Oh, and speaking of paid sites, you could check out Nikki’s VERY NSFW site, but I don’t think I am even allowed to say the name of it.

Okay, now go look at the photos of Nikki and hopefully I will get to shoot her (and Leigh) when they are in town next month.

Heidi V

I don’t use lights very often in my photography. Studio lighting is pretty boring to me. I get it, my work suffers because of it. Sometimes I am using just completely garbage light to get shots that I could set up in 10 minutes with lighting or even something as simple as a little bounce light would be enough, but it’s just not for me. I am looking for the spontaneous moments and it’s a lot harder to capture real life when you have a bunch of gear set up. Or maybe I am just lazy, I’m not sure.

That being said, I do occasionally use lights. I needed lights to shoot a bunch of puppies and celebrities very quickly for Fox Searchlight last year and I ended up putting a cheap LED lighting kit into the budget because my real light setup is so unnecessarily huge and honestly I never want to deal with it. I wanted to practice with it before the shoot and luckily Heidi V was in town.

I photographed Heidi V at AVN or some other adult convention years ago. She’s an Australian cam girl and I just remembered her from a random shot of her at the convention. I didn’t talk to her or anything, but I sort of knew who she was. Meanwhile, my friend was in town and she told me that I should come get food with her and her cam girl friend Heidi. Turns out it was the same girl that I had photographed way back when. We got some food and I showed em around the city a bit and then we talked about taking some photos. I ran home to get my lights so I could practice with em and headed over to the Air BNB that Heidi had rented.

The only problem was that I didn’t have a bag for my lights since I had just bought them. I just grabbed one light and one stand and headed out the door. If you know anything about lighting you know that you really need a second light to get rid of the harsh shadow caused by the first light, but my hatred of carrying gear struck again and I figured I could wing it. That was stupid.

So since I hate doing studio photography, and since I only used one light for some reason I didn’t even bother looking at these photos for a full as year. Still, as I was looking at my list of photo shoots I have yet to publish, this one kept jumping out at me because it’s now the oldest shoot I haven’t put up. 

So last night I finally sucked it up and went through these photos. Fortunately Hedi is adorable enough and we took enough photos that we ended up getting a bunch of stuff worth looking at. We also shot a second mini shoot that ended up on Girls of DBB a long as time ago. And there a few photos of her butt from this shoot that are exclusive to Girls of DBB too. So like, if you wanna see her butt you gotta pay up, or just google her or something. 

Lastly, I just wanted to shout out Hedi cause she rules. Back in January I got to Vegas for the AVN Awards hours before my girlfriend did and she’s the one who booked our hotel room so I had no way of checking in until she got to town. I started Tweeting at people and Hedi told me I could leave my stuff in her room and even trusted me to have a key so I could grab my stuff when I needed it. I really appreciated it, plus we took some random photos with her friend Kristie Bish, so that was cool. Thanks Heidi!

Kirra On Governors Island

I have known Kirra for a really long time, and I have taken her photo many, many times. She is one of my favorite models ever. Like Sammy, she lives super close to me so if I need to finish a roll or have some project she’s one of the first people I hit up. But for whatever reason we had never done a proper digital sexy photo shoot until we went to Governors Island together last fall. 

The one proper shoot I did with her was for her friend Joanna’s lookbook for her clothing company Koukla. We got some really nice photos, just none of them happened to be naked. A few months later we got on a ferry to Governors island and Joanna actually came with us to style Kirra. She actually ended up taking off her shirt randomly and got in a couple of photos herself! I am very pro-Joanna. 

On the island we had to sneak around a bit, but there were plenty of opportunities to take photos. There is a high school on the Island so we timed it to get there right after school got out, but we had to wait a bit before most of the kids went home so we started on the opposite end of the Island. We actually snuck into some areas that you technically aren’t supposed to be in where the buildings are abandoned and had some privacy, but there also was a bunch of standing water and as the sun started to go down a little bit we got mauled by mosquitos. 

We had to escape but by this time most of the people were off the island and we had some room to walk around with no one near us. When we were mostly done we had about an hour before the last ferry back so we hit one of the bars while we waited because I wanted to get some sunset shots. Right before the last boat we snuck off and got some shots. There were two people walking towards us in the distance so we were sort of just waiting them out, but when they got closer I realized that it was my buddy Wizard Skull and his friend. We ended up getting those last sunset shots and getting on the boat back to the city right before it took off.

All of the shots on my premium site Girls of Driven By Boredom are also on here, but I always want to give Girls of DBB some exclusive stuff so I went back through the last year and pulled a bonus gallery of 35mm shots just for Girls of DBB. There’s some shots from my new book and some shots from the shoot we did for my insane dental calendar on there plus some new stuff I’m working on and her tiny kitten. Fully worth the pennies per day it costs to join the site. Just saying. 

Okay, now go look at all the photos of Kirra (and a couple of Joanna) at Governors Island!

A Different Sammy

Very recently I posted some photos of my friend Sammy. I have shot her a bunch and she lives really close to me so I will probably shoot her a million more times, but I shot a totally different girl named Sammy over a year ago, and then proceeded to lose the photos. I saw one of her photos on Instagram today and I realized, oh hey, I should post those photos. It’s just pretty funny that I have two Sammys nearly back to back.

I was introduced to Sammy #2, who goes by @strawberrykiwiemoji on Instagram, from a friend of a friend and I went over to her place and shot her all over her apartment. We shot some stuff in her room and then we hit the kitchen and then finally we shot some on just a white wall in her place and then back in her room once it was pretty much dark.

These photos needed to be color balanced and if you know anything about me, I am terrible at doing absolutely anything to photographs so I just put it off. I honestly thought I had done a pretty good job doing it, but then I looked at them all in a row and realized I hadn’t. Whatever, sue me. 

Okay, I don’t remember much else since this shoot was forever ago, but Sammy seemed rad and hopefully she doesn’t hate me for forgetting about her photos and maybe we will take some new photos one day. End of blog!

April O’Neil In NYC

Last week April O’Neil was visiting NYC and she text me and asked me if I wanted to take some photos of her topless in the streets of New York since that’s legal here. She didn’t have to ask twice. I jumped on the train and headed to her hotel and we shot a few photos of her near the Lincoln Tunnel. She grew up in the desert and lives in LA so she is not exactly a fan of the cold so she didn’t last long, so we headed back to her hotel room to finish the shoot.

If you are a long time visitor of this site you are probably pretty aware that I am a big fan of April. I met her nearly a decade ago but we didn’t get around to actually taking photos until 2013, but since then we have taken photos a bunch of times including these epic shots of her at Murphy’s Ranch and this really fun road trip we took up the California coast. She also is in pretty much every project I make including Instaxxx, Not Safe and Fuck LA.

Okay, that’s pretty much all I gotta say about that, except that I should mention that April asked me to shoot some slightly more explicit shots than normal so she would have some content for her OnlyFans site. You can find those photos there as well as on Girls of Driven By Boredom. Both of those sites are well worth spending your money on if you are the type of person who likes pretty ladies. Just saying. Now go look at the free photos…
