Gabe Ayala Talks Stylizing Porn And New Online Zine

COCKYBOYS-4321-v1

Photographer Gabe Ayala has done photo shoots with the likes of CockyBoys Jake Bass and Max Ryder as well as with Randy Blue models Sean Zevran and Jordan Levine. But, don’t get it twisted, Ayala wouldn’t define himself as a porn photographer. He has a way of editorializing the porn talent he shoots to create stylized images that are more provocative, thought provoking than images that are purely raunchy. “I shoot in a very different manner, and I always try to have some sort of narrative,” he said in an interview with The Underwear Expert. “After you shoot hot guy after hot guy, the hot guy pictures become kind of stale. While they’re really enjoyable, I want to give the audience a little bit more than that and stylize it a bit more.

A successful entrepreneur, Ayala is diving deep into a new business venture, heading an online magazine called Type/Face. A venture, he feels, propelled by common online magazine trends and an innate desire to change the way they were being produced. “The work that I was seeing [in the online magazine market] was kind of redundant and regurgitated,” he said. “I felt that there was a sort of apathy with the work that was being produced, because it was on a lower commodity point than an actual printed magazine.

“The effort wasn’t being put forth, and I really wanted to pour myself into this project. Even though it’s not something of the caliber you’d buy on a newsstand, it’s still quality work,” he continued.

To ensure the quality of the first few issues meet his criteria, Ayala will be contributing most of the material for the online magazine that start as mostly photos but progress into more content as the business grows. Porn star and friend to Ayala, Colby Keller, will also lend a hand to the project acting as an art contributor. Keller will be submitting art pieces on a consistent basis for Type/Face along with explanations regarding his creative process. Check out some of Ayala’s work below!
