As you know, I edit a lot of porn. The resulting photos and videos are pretty hot. But I’m finding myself being more fascinated by the process and the behind the scenes stuff that we do. On this shoot with Marco and Sarpa I was surprised at how clumsy I really am during the shooting of a scene. Zac was filming and kept getting angry cause I was in his shot taking shots. I must admit that I am terrible at keeping away from the action. Anyway, there were lots of amusing shots that I found while editing this shoot. Here’s just a few.
After posting about David’s shoot today it made me miss shooting with the guys in Europe. You see Australian and European guys are totally different. I love shooting with both, I just wish I could select from either everyday. David has actually done some porn modelling before. Zac tells me he is a model for a company called Staxus. I’m so glad he was kind enough to give up his afternoon to shoot with Zac. Though I think the pleasure was mutual. David is actually Hungarian. He and his mates were visiting Munich at the same time we were in town. Even though it was a bit dark in the hotel rooms on this day, the shots and the video look great! And the guys make me wish I was visiting Budapest again soon.
I haven’t travelled for my day job for a long time now. I used to do it a lot a few years ago. So last week I had to spend the week in Sydney. I ended up staying for the weekend so I could do some shooting there. I always get asked by guys when I’m going to be filming there. And after the weekend I had there, I think I should go up more often. Sydney boys are gorgeous! I had 3 guys lined up to shoot over the weekend. Unfortunately one of them dropped out at the last minute, but I suspected that was going to happen. The 2 guys who did go ahead with their shoots were great. One of the guys had an enormous dick, and the other had an amazing bum. Actually they both had nice bums. The shoots went very well. The room I shot in wasn’t perfect for light, but it was good enough for my first practice run of shooting in the city. I’m hoping to go back and do some more soon.
I love these animated GIFs from the Fagsmut website. I just found these animated GIFs from a video I made with Marco and Tyce last year. I love the one of Tyce being fucked up against the window. I really want to learn how to make these out of the video frames. They look like so much fun! That was a really hot shoot too.
Today is the shortest day of the year here in Melbourne. I could really tell too because it seems like the middle of the night when I wake up. It’s also just about the worst time to be shooting. I really struggle to find good natural light for the guys now. I recently shot with Tom Lucas and I can already see that the photos are not as bright and crisp as I would like them to be. But of course Tom makes up for the loss of image quality. And the days have now gotten really cold so there’s not much chance of shooting outdoors. I really should be heading north in June and July. The weather up in QLD is still quite mild. Hopefully I can escape the winter doldrums soon.
Check out this interview that I did with GayDemon this week HERE. The guys have been supporting my site for years by posting about the shoots and the guys I’ve met. They have also helped me out from time to time with some site technical problems. The Gaydemon.com website itself is looking pretty good these days too.
I really wish I could have gotten in more outdoor shoots before summer ended. Last week I was having to shoot scenes that should be outside… inside. It’s just too dam cold outside here in Melbourne now to be getting you kit off outdoors. I was reminded of how much fun summer was when I posted this shoot with my new mate Adam El Shawar on the roof. It was the last shoot I did up there back in March when the days were still long and warm. Hopefully winter will pass quickly.
I seem to be shooting a lot more duo scenes recently. I don’t actually have a preference for shooting solo or du scenes, but taking photos in a solo shoot is definitely easier. In a duo scene I take a lot more photos because quite often one of the guys will have their eyes closed or they are not looking at the camera. So coordinating a duo shoot takes a bit longer. And most of the time the guys really just want to start having sex. So I try to get the photos out of the way quickly. This was the case when I shot with Diego and Jake recently. It was Jake’s first duo scene. I knew he would be a great match for Diego after I saw his first solo scene. I’m hoping to shoot more stuff with him soon. As for Diego… well he lives in New Zealand. So I have to wait until he pays us a visit again or I head over there. If you haven’t checked out their video yet, make sure you do.
Sometimes I wonder why I ever leave Australia when I have so many good looking mates right here at home. And they are keeping me very busy at the moment. I thought I might have a few weeks off from shooting when I arrived back in Australia. But it has already started. I’ve had to start keeping a diary of all the scenes coming up. It’s a mix of new guys with some of the guys who have already appeared on the site. A lot of action scenes too between the guys. I guess it’s good to do a tonne of shooting now before we get to the middle of the Australian winter. By the way… how amazing does Skippy Baxter look? Everyone wants to do a scene with Skippy.
I gotta say it… I loved doing this shoot with Aybars in Munich. Aybars is part German, part Turkish. This guy with the amazing physique is actually a popular porn star. And I didn’t actually know it until afterwards when I searched his name. So I feel pretty privileged to have gotten him to model for me, and that we got it on during the shoot. And how are those hot shots of him on the balcony on that freezing cold day in Munich? The city was fairly quiet when we got there and I was beginning to think we had wasted our time going down there. But then Zac met some Hungarian guys to shoot with and I met Aybars. And I reckon just getting to meet Aybars made the trip there worth it.
Apart from meeting with stunning men, Munich is also a really beautiful city. I hope I will get to go there again sometime. The I can highly recommend the pubs in the Bavarian region.
