The beautiful German Tristan Folder is helping make my little balcony famous in Berlin. Here he is appearing on the Berlin Sneakers poster for their next party in the German capital. As soon as I started assembling my little apartment in Berlin I knew that I wanted to shoot guys out on it's balcony... and quickly before it got too cold! Tristan was the first to get his gear off on my new astro-turf. I think his shots look great! And his video scene was very hot too. I wish I could be in Berlin for the party. I'm really stoked that the party organisers chose one of my photos for their promotions.
It's so nice to be home in Melbourne again after my 4 week stint in Berlin. You see it wasn't actually a vacation. I was still working my day job in Australia while I was staying in Berlin, starting work at 3-4am each day, then either working on fixing up my old apartment, or shooting during the day, and then working again in the evening. So it was a pretty tough time while I was there. But I did have one escape... I have finally bought a bike in Berlin. And it turns out to be one of the most fun cities to ride around. And of course the reason is... the whole city is flat! It's no wonder cycling is popular with people of all ages there. I also managed to meet with a bunch of guys to do a little bit of shooting. Not as much as I would have liked to, but enough to make my stay there more fun. I will post these in the coming weeks.
In the meantime it's the start of summer here in Australia which means I'll be getting very busy shooting some outdoor stuff.
It's been a lot of fun and a very busy time here in Berlin. I've met a lot of guys, taken lots of photos and learnt quite a lot more about Berlin and the German culture. This has been my longest stay in Berlin, and I still love it. The guys here are a lot of fun. There have been a few little dramas along the way, but nothing that couldn't be fixed. I'm in my last few days now before I make the long trip back to Australia.
It's been a really busy time running around Berlin on this visit. I've managed to fit in meeting with some very sexy men, being some friends, and I also squeezed in a visit to the lovely guys at Boner Magazine. And funnily enough they are located right next to the apartment where I spent Christmas 2 years ago. The office is a really fun space, decorated with all the sexy men they have had adorn the magazine in the past years. I like these guys and what they do a lot. They circulate the magazine around Germany at the moment, but you can also check them out online at bonermagazine.com
I've been a little quiet here on the blog recently. Things got pretty busy a few weeks ago with my day job, so I haven't had much time for producing and editing. But there is always an upside to everything. My work has brought me to Berlin this month. So at every free break I can get I am meeting with new guys and getting to see them naked. Berlin is one of the most fun cities in the world with the most sexually outgoing guys I have ever met. I won't ruin the surprise here, but there are a few sexy guys from the past coming back to do new scenes too. I'm pretty excited about this visit.
I have to make a blog post about this sexy middle eastern guy that I met in Berlin back in May. I don't normally try so hard to talk guys in to modelling for me. But with Aro, things were different. He had sent me some pics that made me think that I have to shoot with this guy. He was already pulling the porn poses in his selfie pics, and they were hot! I cam tell that this guy loves being in front of the camera. But it really took some convincing to get him around to my hotel room. I don't think that my shots of Aro are my best work, but it was a good start. I am excited about getting to meet up with him again later this year.
One of the things that keeps me busy each week (when I'm not filming) is creating promo material for every shoot for the affiliate websites. Or porn blogs as most people know them. There are tonnes of them around. Some are better and more active than others. I'm pretty impressed with this Spanish site put together by Lorenzo called Neo Blog Gay at http://noesotrobloggay.com. It reminds me that I haven't shot with any beautiful Spanish guys in a long time.
I'm having so much fun filming some of the behind the scenes stuff with the GoPro cameras. I don't think the quality is as good as the Sony handy cams, but it is fun getting them stuck up on the walls to catch the guys having fun during our shoots. I'd like to get some of the guys filming themselves too, just like Tom Lucas did during his latest video. They can be used to capture stuff that I miss during shoots. Especially when I might not be getting just the right angle or miss some of the action. I was reluctant to use GoPros for a while, but I'm glad I gave them a go.... pro.
It's been over a year now since I threw out those old blue couches I always shot the guys on. And the replacement couches are pretty ugly. While I was out shopping for a bed to put in the studio I spotted this brown leather studded couch in the shop. They were trying to get rid of it since it was a single left over piece. I thought it would make a great porn couch. To try it out I invited around the pint size Cody James for a shoot on it. Cody tells me that it's very comfy as he stripped naked on it. I am making the studio look less like a studio by putting a bed and some furniture in there. It also means that I don't have to use my messy bedroom so often anymore for the scenes.
I often think about making coffee table photo books and what the theme of the book would be. Lately I've become a little bit crazy about shooting guys bums. I love big round bums, and when I find one, I want to take lots of photos of it. It must become a bit weird for the guys. But yes, I've become a bit bum crazy. My latest model Ryan Kai is a lot of fun to shoot with. He gets easily turned on as he strips off, showing his always rock hard mega cock. And from years of playing sports he has got big thighs and one of the most beautiful bums I've ever seen. I am always looking for new ways to shoot him to best show off that arse. The last time I saw Ryan I shot him here on the couch and again in a skimpy speedo in the spa tub. Both very hot shoots.
