Sister Dee Vs. Luna-Vary at Navy Yard






After a long online flirtation along the lines of "I like your look we should shoot" returned with "I like your work we should shoot" for about a year finally I got together with Sister Dee. It took a chance encounter during a shoot that I did with Jiz Lee on the streets of Brooklyn. The man responsible for teaching Sister Dee the ropes is the same that taught me...PD of Insex/Hardtied/InfernalRestraints fame - I was shooting in Dumbo, not far from the Intersec (parent company of the aforementioned websites) studios. While setting up a shot of Jiz I hear from behind me "JC?" I turn around and there is PD and SisterDee. We chat for a few moments and that is where the genesis of this shoot was born...
We set up the particulars and SisterDee, Myself, and the very brave Luna-Vary set off to one of my favorite haunts the Brooklyn Navy Yard along with the very talented Josef who did the make up and hair on this shoot and also assisted me on the shoot...
I will let the photos speak for themselves - hope you enjoy them as much as I did...

Goddess Shea






Finally got a chance to rig and shoot Shea while visiting her over at the Casa De Goldstock where her and Goldstock are doing amazing things. I had been trying to shoot Shea for a little over a year. I'd known Nate for roughly the same amount of time and there was always lots of "lets get together" moments but everything called life got in the way...
In any event - we finally made it happen and I am happy considering it wasn't a preset shoot - more just me showing up to check out the new house, bullshit etc until Shea said "we gonna shoot?"

So here is a sampling...

enjoy it - I did.

Suspension of Opioid Video



Some video shot with my 5DII and 135 f/2 - Natural light ISO 3200 - converted using Itunes from MOV to MPEG4 - sound is the pits. Unlike the Social Distortion videos where the sound system made up for any lacking in the built in mic capabilities in this case the Navy Yard is cavernous and we were using a long lens which put the videographer Manzell Lyles farther away and thus out of reach of the sound....

Opioids first suspension

Opioid



I had a chance to shoot with the lovely Opioid from Deviant Art and a good time was had by all. She was a rope virgin going and proved to be a great rope subject. I thank her for her time coming into the big apple and hope that it doesn't take as long to do another shoot as it did to set this one up...

I Now Return You To Your Normal Program


After no updates or updates with video I decided to take a second to post a few images...
I hope you enjoy....After meeting her at the Sex Blogger Calendar Party I got to shoot with
Jiz Lee - who is Jiz Lee you ask?

The answer from her site is this

"With an ejaculation scene that knocked the concept of the facial cumshot on its ass, Jiz Lee unloaded into the revolutionary world of queer porn cinema. As one of the adult industry’s few GenderQueer Pornstars, Jiz has appeared in the award-winning films of Pink & White Productions, including the Feminist Porn Awards’ Best Dyke Sex Scene 2005 in The Crash Pad and Champion (FPA’s 2009 Movie of the Year).
Other films include Belladonna’s “Strapped Dykes”, those by ‘Bondage It Girl & Indie Porn Pioneer’ Madison Young’s and No Fauxxx creator, Queer Alt Princess Courtney Trouble and JuicyPinkBox’s TAXI. Lee has appeared under various pseudonyms including “Gauge”, “Kaltes Klaris Wasser (Vasa)”, and “Beau Flex”, and has appeared in Here!TV’s Lesbian Sex and Sexuality Documentary Porn Today: Pushing the Limits, as well as Kink.com’s series Behind Kink: Uncovering Porn for Pussies, and can be found online as a featured character in Pink & White Production’s highly acclaimed online porn saga CrashPadSeries.com.
Jiz is a lot of things rolled into one:
queer genderqueer gender-varient trans fag androgynous erotic model pornstar dykestar sex worker artist activist instigator sweetheart lover polyamorous non-monogymous hippie punk leftist past-vegan sex positive nympho slut dyke darling juicy"
My answer is that she is a brave little ball of attitude and fun that I hope comes back to nyc soon so that we can shoot again...

Tampa Revisited




the week in tampa for fetishcon was really a breakout for me. I shot with many models that i'd never had a chance to shoot with and got my name out a bit and it all came in that month prior to Time Out and the notoriety that has come with that...it's a good time. My baby is looking great. My dogs are great. I'm doing interesting work in my opinion...I want to thank everyone that has made this year so good for me...

Brooklyn Navy Yard vs. Emelie B

here are a few samples...

TIME OUT NEW YORK SEX ISSUE



I'd like to thank all the cool folks over at Time Out New York magazine for choosing this image for the annual Sex Issue. I have long loved the set that I shot with Engel Schrei and while I will say that this is not my fave shot from the set I still love it. It is strange seeing her nipples removed lol but maybe she is a submissive sex robot from the future and I don't know it...
In all honesty this is my first main stream cover and I'm very excited...I invite you all to check out the issue. There is a short interview with me as well. Thanks to Tess D for her support and including me in the Sex Bloggers Calander which has been a great experience and led to the TONY attention. Thanks to Adam and Ashlea over at the magazine - you guys rock.

TIME OUT!!!

Sometime in the next two days you will start to see some issues of a magazine floating around the news stands and other cool places that will feature some work that you may find familiar...
take a look...
more to come on this development....

Red Heads With Green Eyes





There is something very interesting about shooting a woman with red hair and light eyes. Could it simply be that they stand out due to scarcity? Maybe but I think it's more than that. I think it has more to do with the extreme color palette that they show in their images. Take Pennie for instance (link above in title and images above) - I put her against a blue sky and she just looked phenomenal. I very often end up going to black and white to enhance the starkness of what I shoot. Not with someone like this...All I could think about was the light. More light.

I'm shooting her again and am looking forward to it...a trooper in the face of public nudity I think we will produce some images that make people say "Holy Shit!" which is my mission statement lol

Introduction To Bondage Class


The Chest Harness (or how 90% of Shibari can be learned in this one tie) - A Bondage Class for Beginners

This class is being hosted by DomSubFriends at 830 on Friday Sept. 4

Shibari can be one of the most confusing arts in the world of BDSM for those that have not had any real experience with it. Even for the casual practitioner who has attempted to learn out of a book it sometimes can really be difficult to pull together the different aspects into a cohesive and clean style. JC will show the class slowly and concisely how to combine the most basic of Japanese bondage techniques together to create a piece of rope work that will be the base of much of your rigging. In easy steps you will learn first how to create a very basic harness as well as some hints on how to make it take on your own style in the future. The chest harness is the basis for much of what is seen as Shibari from hogites to suspension play. The elements you learn during this class will send you on your way toward safe bondage play that can be enjoyed by everyone.

This class will include lots of tying by you - you will need to bring at least 2 30 foot lengths (or 25 - 33) and up to 3 depending on the size of your partner. Many of you will have your own rope already. If you don't, "Home Depot" is on 23rd St.

100 feet of 6 to 8 MM rope cut into 1/3's (and melted at the ends) will be perfect and economical for you to learn with. The lovely people over at Purple Passion on 20th St. also have all your supply needs covered. Or, you can of course buy the ropes right at Paddles as well.

JC came to bondage from the perspective of a photographer and videographer. Having worked with prominent artists in the NYC scene he learned the art of rope under the watchful eye of one of the foremost rope practicioners in the United States. During an intensive year long apprenticeship he honed his style on both lifestyle players and vanilla models creating a style that is both visually pleasing and comfortable for those that are new to rope play. His style has continued to develop in the time since and his photography work at Stark-Arts.com is a testament to the kind of work that he will be teaching. For more info about JC visit http://www.stark-arts.com/

JC will be staying after at Paddles to answer any questions - stay and play.

Fetishcon Days 2 - 5


I got lazy a little bit. I got cheap a little bit. I got super busy a little bit and so I didn't have internet at the Hyatt in Tampa (the host hotel for the convention) so I didn't get to update this every day the way I had planned...
I am in the middle of decompressing from a full day of driving and trying to slowly figure out what is in my comp from shooting but here is one I shot..many more to come.

Short story to go with this - I learned to tie at Hardtied from the legendary PD - the founder of Insex.com. While shooting, videoing, rigging, etc etc at the site I heard all the stories of the "old days" and one of the prominent figures was Cowgirl aka Liz Tyler. Long story shot I had the chance to meet her and I can't say enough about how great she was and we chatted a bit about mutual aquaintances before deciding to do a quick shoot - no rope in this one but certainly one of my favorite shoots ever....

Fetishcon Day 1



The time finally came. After weeks of planning and worrying and spending and getting my shit together I finally was on the road to Tampa for Fetishcon 09. The week leading up to it was painful in many ways as my wife was unable to attend due to unforseen but very happy circumstances. I led to lots of soul searching as to if I even wanted to go. The flop and flip in my mind was constant with my desire to be with Koan far outweighed my desire to go to Fetishcon but she insisted that I go. For her it was very difficult as well - wanting to be there, wanting to take the road trip down with me and LC and Cyndie and Lady J. In the end she decided she was not up to it and I found a new co pilot for the trip. I was lucky I guess to find Summer Siren on short notice. Up until the last moment I had hoped to figure out a way for Koan to come...Sadness.

The road was a two car caravan with myself and LC doing the driving from NJ down to Savannah GA. for day one...
I managed a couple of images with Summer that I think are pretty cool...after 12 hrs/800ish miles of drving shooting was not a top priority. We were foiled in an attempt to capture a scene of a bound Summer in front of a GIANT COW on the Atlantic Coastal Hwy by over zealous security measures...lol

More notes from the trip to follow

Zombies Are Our Friends



A while back I shot some of my street stuff with a really cool woman that is also a film maker. Her and some of her cohorts stopped by last night so we could do some promo pics for the project they are working on. The project is called Zombies Are Our Friends which looks to be very funny and scary and sexy and great...
The make up work was done quickly and beautifully by Julie Langer whom I would recommend for your F/X Make-Up Artist needs...
Here are a few images shot...
