I frequently migrate holidays for convenience, as I often have to work on them. Plus, try to get a restaurant reservation on Valentines Day. Even if you get a good reservation, on February 14, you’ll be faced with staff pressed to make you turnover fast. So I personally will be celebrating…( Read more )
I am super duper excited to share that GothicSluts.com is nominated for Adult Site of the Year – Niche in the XBiz Awards! GothicSluts.com celebrates the darkly seductive style of those pale skinned beauties you find in dark smoky nightclubs with good music, in dominatrix dungeons, at…( Read more )

As Blue Blood turned 22 this past October and BLT will be 25 this coming October, you should expect to see a lot of these anniversary projects, as the people we came up with celebrate a quarter century. Photographer Steve Diet Goedde did coffee table art books very early on in his artistic…( Read more )
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.
(1) Create great work (or find that collection of great work you’ve created.)
(2) Porfolio review: Email samples or a portfolio link to email@example.com. 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!
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.

You all probably recall that Forrest Black and I have been working on a photography art book of our portraits of the California Deathrock scene of the last 15+ years. I just wanted to let you all know that the book is about to come out! We shot the gorgeous and very unique Malice McMunn for the…( Read more )
Blue Blood Happy Independence Day Eidyia Freedom-Loving, American flag-wearing, punk babe (SFW PICS)
The smart, sexy, and all around enjoyable Eidiya just tweeted, “Wearing USA flag printed stuff even though it is “illegal” is by far the most “American” thing you could possibly do. #rebel #freedombaby” This reminded me that I wanted to share some images Forrest Black and I shot of her, which are currently live on BlueBlood.com
This week is the 4th of July, Independence Day in the US of A. Eidyia is independent, intelligent, and politically aware. And she has a great booty. So she is the perfect person for this year’s July 4 photo shoot. A good friend graciously allowed me and Forrest Black to bring Eidyia by late at night to roll around naked in her well-appointed dining room. I hope you all enjoy the results of our creative endeavors. We all certainly enjoyed creating these images. Happy Independence Day!
I love the contrast between Franccesca de Struct‘s soft classic features and strong goth-industrial look in this series and we went with a color palette to accentuate this. This is the 4th set Forrest Black and I shot of the stunning Franccesca de Struct for the Blue Blood VIP. Members get to, ya know, see the whole 128 picture shebang of sexy goth-industrial goodness.
