After a 2.5 month hiatus, I’m back, and things have changed.
Before we get to everything else, there is an issue that needs to be addressed.
While I was gone, one of my books, An Introduction to Camera Game: How to Seduce Women Through Photography, made its way to the #1 place in the Arts and Photography section on Amazon.
Let me explain.
On October 10th, I decided to remove myself from the online world in order to do some personal work and gain new perspective–so I vanished from the internet.
On October 20th, I received a message from a woman in England saying that there was a private Facebook group who was organizing a mob to write fake reviews in an attempt to get my Camera Game book banned on Amazon.
This was right when the #metoo hysteria was starting to blow up and scumbags like Harvey Weinstein and Terry Richardson were finally being exposed.
They used my book as a new target to go after in their witch hunt.
What usually happens when someone gets offended at the book (based on the cover/title alone) is that they get directed to this website first, realize that Camera Game is not about abusing power, not about setting up fake shoots like a pervert, and is a clever and fun way to meet women in the street, once they realize this, they go find something else to get upset about.
Since I had the site down, any idiot could imagine whatever they wanted and signal to other idiots that my book was BAD.
A few disgruntled people left emotionally charged fake reviews on Amazon and it wasn’t really a big deal.
The “Top Critical Review” now suggests that if you buy the book you are a rapist and will go to jail (there are many others that bleat the same bullshit):
It gave me some laughs, was a shining example of how having such an uncalled for, hateful reaction is a projection of deep insecurities, and I felt pity for the losers.
Then, on October 28th, I received another message that someone had reported my book to Petapixel, one of the biggest photography websites in the world and they had written a hit-piece on it.

I knew it was getting good when people who know me offline were sending me links to the site and the comment section was blowing up.
I started to get a little worried that this was not going to end well for the book, but I figured that at some point Amazon had to look into it and realize that my advice was harmless, fun, and much more tasteful than online dating (thankfully, they didn’t succumb to the wishes of the mob, and kept it up for sale).
The book went viral on Facebook, which sparked up hundreds of conversations, some calling for my arrest, and some lauding me as a genius.
Camera Game was always at around #300 in its category on Amazon, I never promoted it there, and 95% of sales came directly through this site (I make about 95% profit when I sell through here, and 50% on Amazon). The only reason it is on Amazon is because people wanted paperback copies.
On November 1, I watched the book jump to the #10 spot.
On November 2, it was #1, and stayed there for the next week.
It took me about 10 months to sell the first 500 copies of Camera Game–the book sold that much each day during the first week of November.
News organizations were trying to reach me at this point, and I was ignoring them.
I let the waves crash, tried to ignore the storm my little book had stirred up, continued on my personal journey (and collected big fat checks at the end of the month).
I’ve never cared at all for SJW types or feminists–I always viewed them the way I view any kind of extremist religious sect–just ignore and avoid, like dogshit on the street.
But this incident made me realize how much more dangerous their ideologies are–these people are different from the religious sects because they have no faith, no belief system, no guidance–they are ruled by their feelings–controlled by current trends and negative emotions.
And they will come after you if you upset them.
They are pure poison, their lies and deception violate human decency, and their weak mental faculties ensure that they will never realize their wrongs.
Granted, I did make the cover/title to Camera Game sensational on purpose because I wanted people to react to it.
The cover features a photo of a woman’s legs on a bed next to a camera, undergarments, and a notepad that reads: “I Want to F*CK YOU.” via Petapixel. lol
Its the same tactic I used as a teenager in order to piss off the Church Ladies.
I used to design cover art for punk rock albums and skateboard decks.
The art was meant to be as offensive as possible–my personal favorite was a depiction of Satan sneaking behind a bush near the pearly gates in order to have a threesome with a couple of sexy angels–the intention was to invoke the wrath of the Church Ladies in town.
The art would offend some people and be condemned in church, which caused the curious to investigate–which meant free press for us and more exposure.
You might think it immature, but it was fun, and immensely satisfying when you are the one behind setting the trap. And that is exactly the reaction you want as a subversive artist.
The tactic still works, except in these times the Church Ladies are the SJW/feminists who deny biology just as much as the Church Ladies denied evolution.
Healthy men will always be attracted to beautiful women and always look for ways to meet and seduce them–if they want to make me a bogeyman for being ahead of the curve on that front, so be it.
Valuable lessons were learned from this episode, and I’m a changed man because of it.
To all the people I offended with the cover of my book (none of the fake reviewers read it, they looked at the cover and let their minds fill in the blanks), I want to say I’m sorry:
I’m sorry you chose to live a life of accommodating your weaknesses instead of developing your strengths.
I’m sorry your lack of curiosity prevents you from real understanding (you could have read the book).
I’m sorry its difficult for you to hold more than one thought in your head at a time.
I’m sorry you are so terrified of being wrong.
Since actions speak louder than words, I proved just how sorry I am for the offended parties, and am pleased to announce the release of the sequel to An Introduction to Camera Game:
This is a collection of 15 of the greatest Camera Game techniques that I’ve developed over the years.
They are the approaches that get the best reactions–women will be laughing, flirtatious, and horny if you use the information in this book.
The collection is brief, succinct, and meant to be taken out in the field. There is no fluff, it is just the brass tacks on the best ways to approach women through photography.
Camera Game has only gotten better in recent times, with Instagram being as ubiquitous as it is, and the demand for competent photographers at an all time high, you would be doing yourself a disservice by not investing in a camera and learning some simple techniques.
Life is meant to be fun, filled with adventure, sex with beautiful women, and the freedom to do as you please.
I’m doing my best to spread this attitude and share ways others can enjoy vivid, meaningful experiences.
And anyone who opposes me has chosen to live in their own hell.
I’ll be back in action for the next few weeks with new posts, photos, and lead ups to more new book releases in the coming months.

2018 is going to be a helluva ride and I’m going to be providing plenty of ways to keep your sanity and shine lights through this madness–make sure you stay tuned in.
