HOLLYWOOD, Calif.—After nearly a decade and a half of contributions that include performing, directing, producing, art direction, writing, photography, videography and more, Miles Long has pushed into the mainstream photography market, shooting his first billboard ad.
The billboard, located at the MGM Grand hotel in Las Vegas, features Gracie Glam, Kendall Karson and Nikki Phoenix.
"It really made sense to have Miles take the pictures for this event," said Robert Morgenthal, general Manager for Tabu. "Not only is he a critically acclaimed photographer, but he knows the girls well, understands how to portray women in a sexy, yet classy way, and is participating in hosting the event as well. We couldn't have had a more perfect fit. He's also been instrumental in marshaling social media promotion as well as ideas for the event itself. We're going to have special packages available for table service including autographed DVDs from all of the starlets hosting the event. In addition, Gracie, Kendall and Nikki will visit with each table so when you come to Tabu on Friday the 18th and get a table, you will actually get to meet all the starlets hosting the event."
In a testament to Long's body of work, which features over 500 movies, more than 100 box covers, over 100 magazine layouts and covers and five billboards, his movies have received five AVN nominations this year for Best Vignette Release (More Than You Bargained For), Best Young Girl Release (Cheerleaders Gone Bad), Best Foot Fetish/Leg Release (Laid In Lingerie), Best Foot Fetish/Leg Release (Nylons 9) and Best All Girl Group Sex Scene (Girlfriends 4).
"I'm extremely fortunate to have been able to make the kind I movies that I wanted to make, and that people wanted to watch," Long said. "I'm very thankful that the AVN voters have been so kind to me in the past. I think that they often don't get the credit they deserve, as every year they must work hard to look at, study, compare and ultimately vote on such a rich and large group of movies and projects."
Long will appear on Spice Radio's YouPorn show on SiriusXM 103 along with Glam, Karson on Thursday at 12:10 p.m. and on SiriusXM 102: Krossfire with Nicki Hunter and Kayden Kross at 3:40 p.m. on Friday. Look for Long to give away DVDs on the air to promote the event, as well as talking about his latest endeavors.
"I have always tried to push myself professionally, just as I have done in the adult photography and video markets," Long said. "I knew that I just had to find the right arena to showcase the style of photography work that I have become known for. I have already done numerous of 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, but this is my first billboard campaign I have done for a worldwide company like MGM Grand, and I'm flattered that they have allowed me to shoot it inside the Tabu Ultra Lounge. It's the first time an adult producer has ever shot inside this MGM property.”
Long's latest release, She's A Handful, is available in stores now starring Nikki Phoenix, Jacky Joy, Alexis Monroe, Shay Fox and Britney Amber. Stills from the movie are being revealed by Long on his Twitter account.
It has also been another successful month of photography work for Long. The director has been steadily making a name for himself as one of the top adult photographers in the adult market, with two layouts are appearing in this month's issue of Cheri Magazine, two layouts appearing in the upcoming issue of Cheri Magazine; and an additional layout appearing in the upcoming issue of Club. Long and Cheri magazine will also be giving away copies of Office Politics autographed by Samantha Saint and Alexis Monroe in next month's issue. Look for Cheri and Club magazines at newsstands now across the country.
Long also celebrated his photos appearing on three billboards in the adult market as well.
"I was approached by Bare N Legal Showgirls and Fantasy Topless to provide photos for the billboard advertising for their clubs," Long noted. "It was my pleasure to furnish them with photos of my good friend Chanel Preston, who graced the cover my 2012 AVN award winning Best Foot Fetish/Leg Release, Nylons 8, and my 2013 AVN award nominated Best Vignette Release, More Than You Bargained For, as well as well known adult stars Lexi Belle and Nikki Phoenix."
