The veteran adult & mainstream producer, director, photographer and performer earned a nod for Best Directing Portfolio – Non-Narrative for his overall body of film work, and Mainstream Venture of the Year for his work with the “Lingerie Fighting Championships” (lfcfights.com), including his TV Show “Modz and Bodz” which has garnered international press coverage, and features well known female Models working on cars with him, as well as interviews with the models, and a photoshoot featuring the Model and the custom car they worked on.
“It was incredibly satisfying to find out that I had received two AVN nominations, especially since I have moved so far into the Mainstream marketspace, not only with the LFC but with the Covers and Centerfolds I have been shooting for FHM, Playboy and other magazines worldwide. It’s something many people repeatedly told me was impossible for many years, so it is especially sweet to see the fruits of all my hard work and dedication come to fruition like this. As I have always said, the only limits you have are those you set for yourself. When someone tells you that you can’t do something, they are simply saying THEY can’t, not that YOU can’t. I want to thank AVN for making a point to recognize all that I have accomplished, both inside the adult business and in mainstream in the same year, this is very, very special to me.” said Long, who will be marking his 24th anniversary in the industry – and 20th behind the camera as a director – in 2023.
Long was extremely busy directing numerous well performing titles for Bang.com and Dogfart Network this year in addition to his own personal work with Miles Long Productions and Little Dragon Pictures. In recent news, the newly released Playboy Sweden Playmate Calendar features Miss January Eva Long and Miss June Shay Lynn, both photographed by Long.
