Erotica LA 2009

Erotica LA lasted for 3 days but I was really only there on 6.13.09.  I showed up really late that Friday and hung out with the Burning Angels and shot a few photos, but that was when I first realized my flash was broken so I got pissed off and went back to my motel.  The next day both conventions were happening so I spent the whole day at the LA Convention Center switching back from weed people to porn people as I mentioned in my last update.  The third day of the convention I completely blew off because I stayed out all night and my editor at the LA Weekly needed the images early so they could go up the next day.  It is probably a good thing too because the LA Lakers won the basketball championship and there was a riot downtown.  I don’t know if it was related to the riot but Joanna Angel had her Escalade stolen from the Staples Center.  I drove by there later that night, but couldn’t get out because people were throwing trash cans at cars and I didn’t get the insurance on my rental.  I wish I had because I would have loved to photograph the madness.

Anyway, back to the porn convention…

The talent wasn’t as huge as the AEE that I shot in Vegas, but Tara Patrick, Ron Jeremey, Jenna Haze and Belladonna were all there… A number of big stars were at the FAME Awards that took place at the same time, but I didn’t think to get press access for that and I didn’t want to fight fans to get mediocre shots.  Plus Steve Prue was their main photographer and as we all know, he kills it. Steve, if you read this… Leave a link to your FAME shots in the comments if you could…

I feel like there is more I want to say, but these are over a week old and I have a terrible memory so I will just let the pictures do the talking.  If anyone has any questions about who any of these people are or what the hell was happening in any of the photos, leave me a comment and I will try to answer it.

In the mean time, click here to see all the photos from Erotica LA 2009. NSFW of course.
