Day 1198 of 365 4 lyf. So I take a lot of studio shots for 365s, but a lot of them are lazy really. Standard lighting. Just go in there and shoot against the backdrop. Save to computer. Minimal editing. Upload and done. This may look like that to casual eye, but it’s really so…


Day 1180 of 365 4 lyf. I need a bigger lens. Like a 2000mm lens. I’ve thought about purchasing one a few times. But on the other hand, I could just buy a car. I don’t even have a good use for one. But I could take pictures of the moon. I love taking pictures…


Day 1168 of 365 4 lyf. Way back when i was unemployed and first getting into this project, one of my favorite things to do was take pictures in different locations. Using neat scenery. As time went on, I kind of fell out of that. No time to go anywhere, no energy to be inventive.…


Day 1052 of 365 Again. I like this picture. Actually I’m having a pretty good picture editing day. Got my first photoset of Miaa sent in to Zivity and accepted (I’ll post teasers here once it goes live) and this was just a snapshot I took of myself, by laptop light while I was working…


Day 1024 of 365 Again. Now this was fun. So, back when I shot the Maverick School for Wayward Girls, my friend, Morgan, from wrestling saw them and wanted me to shoot new gimmick pictures for her (that’s what we call our 8x10s that we sell to fans). She had never done any real modeling…


Day 984 of 365 Again. I’m actually not nearly as depressed today as I was yesterday. But I actually think the picture looks even more depressed. Actually I’m just tired. Beat really. After skimping out on workouts for the last week or so, I decided to start up again. The problem with that is that…


Day 968 of 365 Again. Here’s to getting shit done… I had a really productive day today. A couple days ago, both Newt, and my friend Mike wrote me within five minutes of each other to let me know that yet another film was casting for extras in Pittsburgh. We all know how much I…


Day 899 of 365 Again. Ok, so I guess it’s going to get worse before it gets better. Woke up this morning feeling kinda sick but being determined to get to work. Driving to work pretty much wore me out so I took care of everything I needed to for today and drove back home…


Day 781 of 365 Again. So I’m supposed to have a shoot tomorrow after work (fingers crossed). If it comes together, it will be my first opportunity to use my new flash guns in the field. I figured it might be a good idea to play with them the night before and hence this shot.…


Day 768 of 365 Again. Ever had a day just get away from you? That how I feel about today. I know I went to work. I know I was supposed to have a photoshoot that didn’t happen. I know I spent the entire evening wroking on the new Cosmic Hellcats (which I think is…


Day 760 of 365 Again. I almost got in a fight today. Exciting huh? Well, more like really stupid. Steph and I were hanging out watching TV today when there was a knock at the front door. I went down to answer it and it was my fifteen year old neighbor. He very respectfully and…



Day 712 of 365 More.

Today was the most modelriffic day in a long time.

First, I got mail in the middle of the day that my set with Sarah had gone live. This is something the two of us had been waiting for for several weeks. Go us. So if you’re a zivity member, please go on over and check it out.

After work, I got to work with a new model, Virginia, for the first time. Met her at a party the other day and she was impressed with my photography and wanted to try. I’m still behind on posting photos. Haven’t started the set with Steph and Mandie from the other day, but here’s a little teaser until I get to them.

Then I got a new episode of Cosmic Hellcats posted, which is of course based on models, so head over there to read that.

Then I fell asleep on my couch til 6am. Which has nothing to do with models or photography, but I need to note it to myself because I really need to stop doing that.

Day 699 of 365 More.

You know, I’m pretty much just addicted to this whole self-portrait thing. I was talking to my mom the other day about the one day she’s missed, and the thing is, I don’t even know how to NOT take a picture. After 699 days, there’s a lot of days I don’t have ideas and just don’t really feel like it. But honestly, I don’t think I can even sleep through the night if I haven’t taken a picture. It’s just too much a part of my life right now.

I know that sounds like dedication. It’s not really. It’s neurosis. I have a problem. I obsess over certain things. This has become one of them. Just like smoking (ran out of cigarettes hours ago and everything reasonable is closed… I’m working really hard to not go out and buy a pack), working on the comic (new episode yesterday, if you haven’t been checking it out, you should be… cheap plug), nightly orgies with Carmen Electra, Rhianna and Elisha Cuthbert, and chocolate chip cookies.

There are just somethings that I can’t live without.

Wouldn’t it be great if those things were like working out, eating healthy, and solving the energy crisis? Oh well.

Day 678 of 365 More.

Got a new 50mm lens. The world is good again.

Last year I dedicated a photo to Juneteenth. Sadly I was late doing it. I didn’t get around to doing the photo up til June 21st. Two days after Juneteenth. I considered it apropos as the entire point of Juneteenth is being late, but I vowed to make sure I did a commemorative Juneteenth photo on the right day this year.

For those of you who didn’t see last years photo, and are too lazy to click on the link, allow me to excerpt it and explain the meaning of Juneteenth:

The base idea of Juneteenth is that back on September 22, 1862, Abraham Lincoln announces that the civil war is over and that all slaves would be freemen effective the 1st of the year (you know, you can’t just end 200 years of slavery and oppression, you have to ween people off of it. Give Masa a chance for a few last beatings and rapes… and you know, the harvest was coming).

Two and a half years later, Union Soldiers by led by General Gordon Granger rode into to Texas and were surprised to find that, goshdarnit, there were still slaves there. Apparently "news hadn’t gotten that far." Of course, I’ve always felt that news had gotten that far and Whitey just decided that since the nigros couldn’t read, maybe if no one said anything out loud they’d never catch on. Anyway, on that day, the slaves were "freed" in Texas. Of course, General Granger advised them to continue doing the same work they were doing, living in the same houses they were living in and proceed exactly the same, you know… except now they would be getting paid (slaves wages). And thus slavery died and the ghetto was born.

I commemorate this joyous day by symbolically breaking free of my chains.

Yay! I’m free… And yet still poor… No 40 acres… No mule… hmmm… Can a nigga get a table dance?

So there you go. By the way, I have marked this pic flickr safe, even though technically I am naked. I figure, I’m a boy. I’m showing no naughty bits, it’s not even remotely sexual. Here’s hoping that I don’t get myself banned again. I’ve pretty much given up on explore. 🙂

Happy Juneteenth. Now how about that table dance?
