You’ve probably seen some of Richard Avery’s shots for Juliland in the Blue Blood Contributors Pages because of his recent work with Blue Blood beauties such as Aiden Starr, Darenzia, Lexi Belle, and Justine Joli. Juliland also features Aria Giovanni, Dana DeArmond, Roxy DeVille, Emily Marilyn, Ariel X, and Dita Von Teese, so you know we’ve got some taste in common, The site he does with Juli Ashton also features dozens more incredible women. Blue Blood in print published a teensy bit of Richard Avery’s work some time back, but we actually met in person for the first time through Lange. In this interview, Richard Avery and I chat photography, creativity, and hot women. We’ve got a little free Juliland photo gallery to give you a taste. Enjoy.

I have this theory that all the erotic sites which utilize both are music culture influenced. From a creative standpoint, what do you like about color versus black and white?
Richard Avery: Wow! That’s a tough one. I have many thoughts and opinions on photography today, digital, color, b&w and the future. I’ll give you some of the basics… No matter what you do or use, there has to be a vision behind it. As an artist it doesn’t matter what you do or who you do. You just have to show that you know what you want and are very clear. Quality is most important. b&w or color, it just needs to be good. Today most photographers rely on photoshop tricks and forget about the subject. Tricks are for kids!!! A great photo is one . . .
