Happy 420 from Barely Evil

It is that time of year again. So here is Superna looking might fine.

As most of my friends know, I am not a marijuana smoker, but I am a very big fan of freedom of choice. Here is a shot of Superna from a Blue Blood 420 shoot. Rest of the series at Blue Blood and Barely Evil!

Photographers and Models: Blue Blood VIP Call for Photo Submissions

Blue Blood is currently considering new photographic submissions from now through the end of September 2014. Work will be considered on a rolling basis and deadline for this reading period is September 30, 2014.

While Blue Blood is open to beginners, it is a creative venue for established photographers, artists who have a vision and are committed to their craft. Blue Blood is primarily interested in contributions from those who have a significant body of work. Photographers Blue Blood has published include Justice Howard, Gunter Blum, Carlos Batts, Bodó Janos Attila, Chad Michael Ward, Ashley Fontenot, Christine Kessler, Roman Sluka, Larry Bradby, Julie Simone, Jim Hancock, Jay Allan, and, of course, Amelia G and Forrest Black.

blueblood call for photographic art submissions

Publication process:

(1) Create great work (or find that collection of great work you’ve created.)

(2) Porfolio review: Email samples or a portfolio link to submit@blueblood.net. Social media profiles, such as Instagram or even ModelMayhem, are fine for the purpose of a portfolio to show what your work is like. If you are accepted to submit, you will receive an invitation at this stage. Blue Blood considers portfolios from all, but Blue Blood only accepts actual set submissions from invited artists at this time. If you do not hear back within 2 weeks, please feel welcome to contact again to follow up.

(3) Receive a DropBox invite.

(4) Submission: Submit your full completed sets via DropBox.

(5) Get your work accepted and complete final paperwork.

(6) Get published, tell everyone you know, get paid, and celebrate!

(7) Repeat :-)

Themes to consider in selecting what to submit:

GothicSluts.com – gothic girls, the more dark eyeliner/black lips/bats/spiderwebs/fishnets, the better

BarelyEvil.com – punk teens, strange insertions and devil themes are plusses

EroticFandom.com – science fiction and fantasy themes, cosplay, comic books, monster makeup, vampires

RubberDollies.com – latex and rubber couture, both on and off altmodels

BlueBlood.com – preference for real life counterculture couples shoots

Models with more than 50 completed shoots, and at least one popular social media profile, are also invited to query about doing a site themed around them.

It is strongly preferred that a number of photo sets be submitted at the same time. Most sets feature a sequence of some sort and tell a bit of a story and thus end up being 60 to 160 images. Rates can be higher, if you do the post-processing, but you do not have to. Less explicit sets are expected to be shorter and more explicit series are usually longer. Work submitted on a piecemeal basis is generally considered long after work submitted in batches. Submissions will be temporarily closed after the September 30, 2014 deadline.

This is what a feminist looks like

The most excellent Liz Henry, who has her finger on the pulse, just posted Kelly Martin Broderick’s My Picture Was Stolen And Turned Into A Fat-Shaming Anti-Feminist Meme On Facebook article from XOJane to Facebook. I believe XOJane was founded by Jane Pratt of Sassy and Jane magazine fame. Sassy was ground-breaking in its depictions of teen female sexuality, instantly making Seventeen look like a relic from a vanished time. Jane even wrote up Blue Blood’s BarelyEvil very positively, so I’m warmly disposed towards them. I’m probably even a little extra-disposed towards liking what Liz Henry writes because I thought she was hot when we had food or drinks or whatever at SXSW some years ago.

So I’m not saying that I oppose all beauty standards. Human beings base some of the way they socialize on visual cues. I think it is part of the path away from oppression for oppressed populations to assert alternative beauty standards.

As a publisher, I am well-aware that eventually somebody has to pay the bills. Juicy Couture wants to sell to women. Women, including feminist women, tend to buy a lot of beauty products. XO Jane has a largely female audience. I get why there are Juicy Couture adverts for Viva La Juicy or whatever on there. I do get it.

But, when I clicked over to My Picture Was Stolen And Turned Into A Fat-Shaming Anti-Feminist Meme On Facebook and was whacked with the Juicy Noir pop-up advertisement, it just really made me wince.

PS The notion that Facebook thinks it is fine to make derivative works from someone else’s image and get Facebook extra traffic with those derivative works . . . well, it is probably fortunate that I did not carry on the family tradition and go to law school or I’d be spending all my time and resources on pro bono work.

Happy (Naked Tattooed Elf Scarlet Starr) Holidays from Blue Blood’s BarelyEvil (SFW PICS)

Happy holidays, everyone! I’m eating cookies and drinking cocoa (well, mocha, but that’s how I like it) and I hope you all are too.

Forrest Black and I photographed cute elfin Scarlet Starr chewing on a candy cane in a Bah Humbug Santa hat, with some candy cane striped stockings, and a good dose of red and green and silver tinsel Christmas decorations. I just love holiday sets. These two images are safe for work (not that you are probably working today, but you know what I mean) but none of the links I’m about to give you are. There are some very nice naughtier free pics of Xmas Scarlet Starr in this free BarelyEvil gallery. The whole series appears in the Blue Blood VIP and on Barely Evil :-)

SpookyCash Nominated for XBiz Award

SpookyCash Nominated for XBiz Award

by Amelia G : December 28th, 2010

I’m pleased that Blue Blood’s SpookyCash affiliate program has been nominated for Specialty Affiliate Program of the Year in the 2011 XBiz Awards. SpookyCash is kinda like the Amazon referral programs a lot of folks participate in, only it pays promoters more. If you run a high traffic gothic or punk or tattoo or fetish-oriented web site, SpookyCash is definitely good for more than a little beer money.

SpookyCash is the official affiliate program for BlueBlood.com, Gothic Sluts, Erotic Fandom, Barely Evil, Rubber Dollies, Erotic BPM, Scar 13, and more alt membership sites for grown-ups.

Because of our love of new technology and strong publication background, SpookyCash was the first affiliate program to utilize a hosted blog and custom-coded affiliate RSS feed syndication in this market space. SpookyCash also still has the only fully hosted TGP of any of the nominees. SpookyCash, of course, has all the expected affiliate webmaster tools, including banners, hosted banner rotation, FHGs, POTDs with customizable preview thumb size, and all that good stuff.

If you are a Blue Blood reader with a busy web site or a personal profile with more than 15,000 friends and fans, please feel free to message me for assistance getting set up to make money with SpookyCash.
