JACOB DOOLEY. The first thing I will mention is that there really isn’t much there. There's farmland for miles and miles with not too many people living out there. I think my closest neighbour to my childhood home was about 3 miles away. With only a small community of people living nearby, you do learn to show up and work hard for your neighbours or family who are in need of help. Although it can feel very isolating there, it just left more room for me to dream about what else was out there in the world, which I think fed into my creativity.
J.D.: I was always interested in the way I dressed and presented myself growing up. In North Dakota, it's very limiting with the types of brands and fashion that they offer at our local mall in Fargo. I would never have thought I could pursue this profession, but my cousin, Jenn, who left North Dakota to go to Los Angeles, had her own modelling career 10 years before I started my own journey. My most memorable experience will always be the first modelling job I booked in Miami. It was with the company FRAME, and the campaign was shot by the legendary photographer Bruce Weber. I couldn’t have asked for a better first experience for my first booking.
J.D. Yes, I think any form of artistic expression comes from a part of the artist. There have been many shoots where I’ve been able to release a different side of myself that I don't normally portray in everyday life. When it comes to my paintings and digital art, I like to pull inspiration from nature, pop icons, and psychedelic art from the '70s. Some of my favourite pieces were inspired by '50s gay pulp illustrations, which I derived from my personal nude collection as well as some of my OnlyFans content.
J.D. Thank you so much! This shoot was probably the most comfortable I’ve ever felt shooting nude outdoors. As you know, we shot this story on Fire Island. This was my first time ever visiting the Pines, and I was not expecting to have the experience I had while shooting there. Everyone there is so free to just be themselves and wear their sexuality on their sleeve. It really just felt safe for me to be doing what I needed to do out there. Usually, I am always keeping an eye on my surroundings in case I need to hide or cover myself because I know I may offend someone walking by, but there was a real sense of safety while shooting nude. When we were shooting the beach scenes at sunset, I knew there were people walking by and seeing me, but there was a moment when a group of guys walked by and shouted “YASS QUEEN WERK!” And that really was the moment I felt a wave of comfort rush over me.
J.D. I really don’t have any fetishes that I’ve discovered, yet. I’m very fluid with my turn-ons. Each partner has had different things that get me going.
