LAS VEGAS—With a long adult entertainment résumé to his name, AVN Hall of Fame director Miles Long has produced plenty of sexy, glamorous images. But lately he's taken the skills he's acquired in nearly a decade and a half of performing, directing, producing, writing and shooting video and stills, and transferred them to the mainstream photography market.
His latest foray is a billboard ad for an event he is hosting with Nikki Phoenix and Alexis Monroe at the Tabu Ultra Lounge inside the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino the evening of March 30.
The event, "A Night Out With Nikki Phoenix," celebrates Phoenix's appearance in the mainstream film 21 and Over (for more on Phoenix and the movie, click here). There will be a red carpet at midnight, and press wishing to cover the event should contact Long directly.
Phoenix has guests flying in from across the United States for the festive occasion, including Twala Coggins, the owner of Twala Intimates, whose lingerie company is sponsoring the event.
"Twala Intimates is a high-end lingerie company based out of Seattle. Because Nikki Phoenix has already modeled for their lingerie catalog, it really made sense to involve Twala Intimates in the event," Long said. "They supplied all of the lingerie for the billboard shoot, and also donated the lingerie that we will raffle off the night of the event. I feel extremely fortunate to have such a high-end lingerie company to partner with, especially since their designs are so sexy and classy at the same time."
During the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo, Long shot a billboard for another event at Tabu, and he was thrilled to repeat the experience. (For more about Long's last event at Tabu, click here.) "It was great to have the opportunity to work with MGM again, and showcase the style of photography work that I have become known for," Long said. "I have already done numerous billboard ad campaigns catering to the adult market, and I have really been fortunate to have blossomed in the magazine market as well, with this year seeing my first layouts published in foreign markets as well as the domestic ones. Now that I am regularly doing billboard campaigns for a worldwide company like MGM Grand, which gave me the freedom to shoot the campaign inside the Tabu Ultra Lounge, I feel like I am really starting to gain mainstream acclaim.”
"Miles takes amazing pictures, so it was only natural that we had him do this event," said Robert Morgenthal, general manager for Tabu. "Our last event was so successful that we could not wait to schedule another and take advantage of not only his critically acclaimed photography, but also his connections with high-profile girls in the mainstream and adult industries—and his ability to promote the event in the press and social media."
Morgenthal explained that Long has been instrumental not only in social media promotion but also in suggesting ideas for the event. "We're going to raffle off sets of Twala Intimates lingerie the night of the event," Morgenthal said. "And in addition, Nikki and Alexis will visit with each table, so when you come to Tabu on Saturday the 30th and get a table, you will actually get to meet the starlets hosting the event."
Long is looking forward to the night, noting that it helps to further his current career objectives. "This has been a great year already for me, and I have really started to push into more mainstream outlets."
The veteran director hasn't turned his back on a body of work that includes close to 600 movies, more than 100 boxcovers, some 100 magazine layouts and covers, and seven billboard campaigns. His latest release, She's a Handful, features both Phoenix and Monroe. And Long just wrapped his first movie with Overboard Video, starring Madison Ivy, Tia Cyrus, Dani Jensen, Trinity St. Clair and Charmane Star. Stills from She's a Handful and his other adventures can be found on Long's Twitter account.
This month, Long has layouts appearing in Cheri magazine and another in the upcoming issue of Club. In addition, he has photographs appearing on three billboards in the adult market. "I was approached by Bare N Legal Showgirls and Fantasy Topless to provide photos for the billboard advertising for their clubs," Long said, noting that he furnished photographs of Phoenix and top adult star Lexi Belle.
