I've been a big fan of photographer Justin Monroe for a while now and continue to really enjoy his book Down The Rabbit Hole. I've been featuring work recently from his newly launched blog and was so excited that Justin wanted to share some material exclusively with you Dudetube readers. In addition to some smoking hot shots of Aaron Marks & JJ Phoenix, Justin was willing to sit down and answer some questions:
Matt: Your style is very distinctive, and erotically charged. Where does this all come from?
JM: I have always been a sexually driven person. I went to an all boys catholic school in the mid west were sex was such a taboo. I strongly feel when you take or keep something away from someone it becomes something they desire even more. I have always been attracted to fashion that involved naked models, its creates an air of empowerment and self confidence I have always been attracted to.
Matt: I see that you incorporate a lot food and boys asses, Tell us about that?
JM: It was either go to culinary school or become a photographer. When I describe colors I describe them as food. such as pineapple, mango, vanilla cream, and I guess when I see a boys ass it just falls into the same category for me (laughs) doesn’t it for you?
Matt: What have you been working on lately?
JM: I have been doing the final edits to my new books Play Things and Cherry. I am also working on a personal charity project which will reveal itself in the very near future and created a blog, www.monore-land.com all for my die hard fans to see my images, uncensored and the way they were intended to be shown
Matt: What is, in your opinion, the craziest photoshoot that you ever did? because we have a few photos in mind?
JM: I just did a photoshoot called the Three Little Piggies. It had three super hot body builders with pigs heads, big fat dicks, molesting and peeing on each other. It was a huge mess for me and my assistant to clean up at the end of the night (laughs) since then I have invested in big plastic drop cloths.
Justin also isn't shy about getting in front of the camera himself. In this series titled DIRTY WHITE BOY taken by Kyyler Photos, Justin shows off his amazing ass with model Deron Christopher Reed.
Matt: I see that you have appeared naked yours images and images taken by others, is there anything you wont do?
JM: Probably intercourse. As well you haven't seen my erect dick and probably wont but I NEVER SAY NEVER! who knows ask me a year from now or a month... haha
Matt: Who do you want to shoot that you haven't yet and why?
JM: Beyond the obvious I would love to shoot Dolly Parton, She seems like she has a big heart and loves to have a good time. Dolly has the extreme body that I am in love with and there is nothing conventional about her at all. She is like a life size doll, what photographer would pass that opportunity up?
Matt: Have you ever thought about opening up your own porn company?
JM: I have thought about it. and really ts a lot of work with a little pay off, constant scouting, updating, fluffing , ugh ....just too much work for me., besides I have TMJ I don’t think my jaw could take it. (laughs)
Matt: You could have taken the conventional route of photography and probably would have been safe and successful. So why did you choose this avenue of photography?
JM: If you ask anyone that knows me, I never take the easy road. When things are complex and a bit trying it seems to keep me more interested. Its kinda like dating the guy that is actually not into you, When your working for his affection it is 100 times more interesting than somebody that is all over you. Thats the best way to describe what I feel about the path I have chosen to take.
