Vegas Update #2

I’ve been to LA for a day and a half but just gonna give you these Vegas updates because I meant to post this two days ago and didn’t have any time to finish it/Wifi until now.

First of all I shot the AVN Awards and a ton of my friends won and it was awesome. I posted like 50 photos on Twitter so you can just look at this post and read all the replies to see a ton of photos from the AVNs. Check out the rest on the LA Weekly.

I am not posting any photos from the AEE right now because I wouldn’t even know where to begin but the LA Weekly has a gallery of that as well. I will get to that stuff myself when I get back home a week too late. Sorry.

Now for the fun part… the girls I got to take photos of while I was in Vegas…

Since the last update I got to take photos of some fairly attractive humans. I shot Blair Williams who was sick but I brought her DayQuil and shot her in her hotel room taking medicine, eating food and getting her make up done. Fun BTS stuff with a super babe. She also happened to have a really hot make up artist/best friend.

I finally got some one on one time with Keisha Grey who I am sort of obsessed with. She goes from super adorable to super sexy in an instant and she fucking climbed out of her window onto the wall of the hotel several floors up. It was amazing and then she just took a bath and we took photos and we watched Billy Maddison until she had to go to a party.

Saturday I got to shoot Moth who is an unreasonable babe. She was staying with my bff Lucy Everleigh and two other girls and they managed to destroy their room in a way that was formerly only reserved for British rockstars so of course I shot her in their room. Oh, and speaking of Lucy, her and I and our friend Hunny all got terrible $10 tattoos on Sunday.

After my shoot from Moth I met up with another super cute cam girl named Holly Beth. I took Holly’s photo at AVN last year and this year I got to shoot real photos of her. We didn’t have a place to shoot but I ran into Hunny (see previous paragraph) and Hunny said we could shoot in her room if her roommates didn’t mind. They didn’t so we went up stairs and on the way ran into two other cam girls and they wanted to be in photos so I shot some solo stuff with Holly and then more stuff with all four of them. And then the roommates showed back up and I finally shot six cam girls together. It was pretty magical.

Sadly during the shoot my Instax camera broke so I sort of didn’t shoot anyone else after that. I did get a few shots of my friend Charlotte Sartre cause we were hanging after the AVN Awards but we didn’t shoot much.

Anyway, I left for LA and I will update you on that shit later, until then here’s some highlights…

Vegas Update #1

Day one and two of my trip to Vegas are in the books and I feel like I have taken a million photos and not sure I like any of them because that’s just how I roll. I have been mostly focused on my assignments for LA Weekly, Mass Appeal and Vice and of course taking photos for my book so I have only really done one full set of babe photos.

I shot a few digital photos of Abigail Mac, Stefanie Joy, and Melissa Moore but I was mostly focused on my other work that aside from one or two pictures the digital stuff is fairly useless. I did a quick set with Bobbi Dylan in a stairwell but we didn’t wanna get caught so it was really fast and then last night as I was leaving to head back to my hotel I shot a few photos of Ramona Flour in the parking garage. All this stuff will probably end up in a Girls of AVN 2016 gallery pretty soon.

The one shoot I did for real was of Jillian Janson. I actually shot her for the Showtime AVN broadcast. I guess they put in little features between the awards and apparently I am going to be in one of them. We shot in this amazing penthouse suite and then went on the roof and finally snuck into a kitchen where we immediately got caught. I took 300 photos so there’s gotta be one good one.

So while I was updating this my friend Taurus just showed up and we took some photos in my hotel room so I guess I will add that to this update too! Not sure if there’s a full set in there either but we got some nice stuff. She’s so fucking pretty.

I should also mention that my Instaxxx photo book Kickstarter hit $11,000 today which is fucking insane and Abigail Mac and Jillian Janson signed some Instax for the Kickstarter so if you haven’t donated or want to raise your pledge you can get one of the signed outtakes. Wow that was a long sentence.

Anyway, I am headed back to the AEE and I am sure I will have plenty of that stuff for you soon.

Oh Right, SXSW…

So I have done a terrible job of updating this while in Austin for SXSW. Don’t blame me. I have been busy making money so that I can pay my rent and continue photographing fun stuff that you want to look at. This is life.

So SXSW is over and I am headed home at 6am tomorrow. Since I last left you guys I shot two more days of FloodFest and I shot a little bit of the Levitation showcase at Hotel Vegas. I think. I also got a tattoo that says Chow Hound and hung out with some babes at Red Lobster and at a lake. It’s been a good trip I think.

Thanks a bunch to Sailor Jerry and Original Penguin for having me out and here’s a few photos from the last couple days before I get home and update this site properly.

SXSW Day 1 & 2

So holy shit I haven’t had time to do anything so far. I can’t really explain it except to say I got old somehow. Normally at SXSW I sleep 4 hours and somehow just function perfectly fine but this year I am struggling. I started out on the wrong foot when I landed in Austin after sleeping a total of three hours over the last 72. That first night I crashed early because I had to hit FloodFest at 11am.

Here’s some highlights…

The Heavy. They were great.

The Heavy

Deap Valley. Rock and roll babes that I kinda want to describe as the White Stripes with more bluesy female vocals but that seems like kinda bullshit. Whatever the case they wore fringe and were hanging out with an actual human baby.

Deap Valley

This guy who got a fucking SXSW 2016 tattoo on his knuckles. That shit is so wild. He was in a band called American Bombshell playing their first ever SXSW and he saw that Sailor Jerry was doing free tattoos. SXSW 16 is not actually a Sailor Jerry tattoo but it had to be done.

SXSW Tattoo

After FloodFest I randomly got hired to shoot a dinner for Atlanta hip-hop legends Organized Noize which was awesome. They have a documentary out in the film fest and were celebrating. So thanks to my buddy Chris for putting in the good word. It makes up for that time we split a hotel room at Art Basel and his sleep apnea machine lulled me to sleep to the sounds of Darth Vader snoring.

Organized Noize

After the Organized Noize dinner I went back to edit photos and called it a night.

Day two started back at FloodFest. My friends Ho99o9 are destroying SXSW for the second year in a row and they came by to get some Sailor Jerry tattoos and then I took em over to Original Penguin for some button up shirts which is kinda a great look on some punk rock scumbags.

Ho99o9 Tattoos

Band wise I really dug the September Girls. I hung out with them most of the day which was an ideal way to spend St. Patrick’s Day given they are all actually Irish. Rad babes with cute accents that make good music? Totally down to be their groupie if they need me.

September Girls

My favorite band of SXSW so far is Sir The Baptist. They are a mix of gospel, hip hop and R&B and they put on a hell of a show. You should see them if you get a chance. This photo isn’t even of Sir.

Sir The Baptist

After FloodFest I went over to Hotel Vegas to check out Thee Oh Sees at the Levitation showcase which makes the millionth time I have seen Thee Oh Sees in Austin. They are fucking great though so it’s a yearly SXSW requirement. Also there were a ton of cute babes at Hotel Vegas (including the September Girls!) which is the most important thing.

Hotel Vegas

I left Hotel Vegas kinda early to edit photos and take a shower before going back out again but it’s now midnight and I am working on this post and haven’t even showered yet so I kinda have a feeling I am in for the night. Fuck it. We got a lot more SXSW to go!

2016 SXSW

Headed to South By Southwest for my 13th straight year tomorrow. This will be my first year in ages where I am not covering the Film & Interactive parts of the festival. I love Austin and the Film Fest is one of my favorite things to cover but I forgot to get credentialed because I am an idiot. Whatever, life goes on.

This year I am covering Floodfest, the Flood Magazine (formerly Filter) takeover of Cedar Street. As always I will be working for Sailor Jerry but this year I will also be shooting for another Floodfest sponsor the menswear brand Original Penguin. Should be fun and only slightly stressful.

I am technically only working the day parties, but with some of the bands on this lineup I have a feeling I will be sticking around for the night parties as well. It’s totally free  and you don’t need to RSVP or have a badge or anything from 11-6 so if you are in town stop by and say hi… if nothing else I can probably score you some free rum.

Check out the flyer with all the info and I will be back soon with daily updates from SXSW 2016!

Home From Vegas

I did a real shitty job updating this, but it’s okay cause I am home already and I have some photos from the Adult Entertainment Expo up already. What are you gonna do? AVN photos will be up tomorrow and then a series of naked photos from my gig working for AVN director of the year Greg Lansky. Plus there’s a Vice article coming soon and everyone will have tons of stuff to look at.

I just wanted to post here as a half ass apology in case anyone is looking at the road trip blog months from now. Plus I figured I can just throw up some AVN images I already posted on Twitter and will post again on the main page tomorrow. Sorry and stuff.

Gathering Of The Juggalos Day 2

Today I woke up at 2pm which would be more impressive if I didn’t go to bed at 7:30am. The Gathering is beating me but I won’t let it win. I feel almost functional this morning afternoon. Luckily I don’t really have anything I NEED to shoot at the Gathering today. Obviously I need to get down there soon anyway but let me give you a little run down of yesterday.

Since I spent most of Wednesday following around Ho99o9 I didn’t take a lot of photos of actual juggalos so that was a big part of yesterday. I think I got some really nice shots yesterday. After the sun started to go down the light was really nice for a few hours. I also brought a 35mm camera loaded with black and white film out and left my flash in the car.

Unfortunately I couldn’t find my car when I went back to get my flash and ended up missing the first few minutes of Flosstradamus which normally wouldn’t have been a big deal but they kicked all the photographers out of the photo pit before I got there. I have shot Flosstradamus a bunch of times, but never in front of thousands of juggalos. Their set went very well save for one asshole who hit Josh in the face with a rock. Made for a nice visual though…

After Flosstradamus I decided I didn’t need to photograph Dark Lotus for the 6th time and met up with the mythical Burrito Man for a burrito and then went to hang out with Mike Busey and his pack of strippers at the DJ Clay after party. Clay and I seem to have very similar tastes in hip hop and believe it or not I always look forward to his DJ sets. My friend Steak is filming a show for Vice’s new women’s vertical Broadly and apparently one for the HBO Vice show at the same time so she had two camera crews following her around so I hung out with those kids a bunch too.

I said goodbye to the Vice crew and went over to shoot Twista and when I got there they were already there again. Twista was fucking awesome although he didn’t seem to know he was at the Gathering of the Juggalos. He kept giving shout outs to Ohio as if we were all from Thornville.

Oh, I also saw Puddle of Mudd for some reason and I am pretty sure I am falling in love with about 6 of Busey’s Beauties. Perhaps it’s the body glitter… Everyone likes shiny things.

Here’s a few highlights and will be back with much, much more soon.

The End Of SXSW

It’s finally over. It’s really fucking finally over. I ended my SXSW in ideal fashion last night by seeing just my third band of the whole festival when I shot the amazing Ho99o9 last night. I am still in Austin for two more days but I am just gonna be relaxing and eating BBQ. Perhaps going to the rodeo? Yeah that’s a real thing.

Anyway, I can finally talk about the parties I was shooting this week. I was working for Sailor Jerry as per always and they threw a bunch of secret parties that had more of a lounge vibe than the rest of SXSW. They had bands DJ instead of playing music and there were a lot of couches and free drinks. It was sort of an ideal way to deal with the madness that is SXSW.

The last two nights we had Lust For Youth, the Spits, Ice Age and Andy Animal Djing and we had some good people stop by. In between the two parties I got to shoot my friend and muse Erica for the first time in years time which was amazing. Plus the photos are way sexier than the really fun ones we took at Disney World!

I was really glad not to have to see a billion bands at SXSW because I always get completely burnt out, but I did miss the chance to find that one or two bands that blow me away every year. Fortunately my buddy Eaddy’s band Ho99o9 was playing right next to the Sailor Jerry house at the We Are Family showcase. I kept hearing so much great shit about them and they completely lived up to the hype. Eaddy is honestly one of the best frontmen I’ve ever seen and the other dude is fucking great too. I wanna go on tour with these dudes. It would be amazing shots every night but I am 100% I would break my camera because when they covered Attitude by Bad Brains I totally forgot I had my camera in my hand and just got in the pit.

Anyway, here are a few highlights from the last two days. I will probably update this Road Trip blog once more before returning to reality and updating my site as per normal. I got a lot of images to get up…

SXSW Continues…

Music week is in full swing and I have been working parties I can’t really talk about until after they are over. Whatever the case, last night was a ton of fun and I have a feeling tonight is going to be a blast as well. Plus I have legitimately nothing to do until 9pm tonight and that fucking rules.

I did take some pictures of Thee Oh Sees and my friend Justin’s band the Residuals at Hotel Vegas yesterday but other than that I have completely managed to avoid seeing any bands this week which is precisely the plan. Not that there aren’t a few bands I want to see but every year I get so burnt out from SXSW so it’s nice to try to just chill out a bit.

Anyway, here are some highlights from the last two days… Pics from the Sailor Jerry gallery, Hotel Vegas and two parties that aren’t that secret but I would get yelled at for talking about. If you want to come by tonight though just let me know and I can list you.
