Nate “Igor” Smith, founder of drivenbyboredom.com, a nightlife and lifestyle blog, is known for his photographs of women in various states of…undress. Igor freely admits that the racy shots have a lot to do with the site’s success, but what interests me most about his work is that the images document his many wild adventures out in the world. He’s telling stories through his lens, some of which no one would ever believe if he didn’t have proof.
The other admirable thing about Igor is that he makes it a point to take pictures everywhere, whether he’s getting paid to or not. After looking through the massive collection of outrageous images he keeps at his apartment, I realized he’s on to something: The more you shoot, the more likely you are to get interesting shots. It’s kind of obvious, but it’s a good reminder for all aspiring photographers.
Check out the interview with Igor at his home studio. And, Igor, the 13-year-old in me thanks you. I’ve never seen so many different naked women in my life.
