WHAT IT'S LIKE WORKING FOR PLAYBOY

So I am the digital photo director for playboy, this is what it's like to work for this iconic American brand....
  1. 1.
    Playboy is about freedom.
    Our founder has always been an advocate for human rights
  2. 2.
    Playboy is about photoshoots!
    Tons of them! Here I am being the shooter along with a videographer
  3. 3.
    Playboy is about women!
    Not just the models but the crews too, lots of creative women working together to make fun sexy content for the website!
  4. 4.
    Playboy can be a little hard on the ego.
    I often wish I could stop eating after seeing so many beautiful women with killer bods...but then this would happen!
  5. 5.
    Playboy is about interviews!
    Celebrity interviews are my favorite part of the job as meeting someone super talented like Paul F Thompkins is inspiring to me creatively
  6. 6.
    Playboy is about helping people make cool stuff.
    In solidarity with the Supertroopers, we posted a video to let people know they had a indiegogo campaign to make a sequel
  7. 7.
    Playboy loves making funny videos.
    We asked Reggie Watts to make up theme songs for tv shows he's never seen - they are hilarious
  8. 8.
    Playboy is about parties
    The logo "work hard, play harder" is put to the test at our office parties! I'm usually too busy to indulge but one Halloween I happened to be there...
  9. 9.
    Playboy loves music and culture.
    So they will happily bring in some entertainment for the troops
  10. 10.
    The Playboy Mansion is my second office...
    I have to attend the parties and wrangle photographers...I know you feel sorry for me right?
  11. 11.
    Playboy believes in animal rights
    The mansion has a zoo and the animals are treated like gold and are very friendly to people
  12. 12.
    Playboy and weed culture are friendly
    Snoop asked me to come back and do photoshoots at his Sirius radio station...ok!
  13. 13.
    Playboy will send you to get killed by robots
    Ok ok it was my idea to shoot the DARPA challenge
  14. 14.
    Playboy gives you two weeks off for the holidays
    The best time of the year but I always end up cleaning my house the entire time
  15. 15.
    Playboy likes adventure!
    I make sure we aren't just photographing pretty girls, but awesome women!!!!
  16. 16.
    Playboy is exhausting
    So they give us free coffee on Wednesday to perk up our weeks!
  17. 17.
    Playboy is an enterprise
    It's not all fun and games it's a lot of hours a lot of time and a lot of hard decisions.
  18. 18.
    But...we always have fun anyways!
    That goes without saying if it's not fun to do what's the point?

    "The free cranberry juice"
