Adult Industry[edit]

Lucido is most known for his work behind the scenes of the adult industry.[2] In 2005 he accepted a job as a video editor at Randy Blue, an online adult production company. He quickly grew in the industry and became the lead photographer as well as Director for several films.[3] Now the Production Manager at Randy Blue he continues his work in the industry.

In 2005 he also launched a blog called "Starrfucker" which helped spark his notable adult industry career.[4] Jeremy and/or his photography have since been featured in such publications as Frontiers, Cybersocket Magazine,[5] The Advocate,[6] Pisszine,[7] Starrfucker Magazine,[8] and the beef.[9]

Starrfucker Magazine[edit]

In 2010 Jeremy rebranded his blog Starrfucker and created his self-published Starrfucker Magazine, a black-and-white print zine featuring his erotic photography as well as other art and photography from contributing artists.

According to Nigel Zeff in Flaunt Magazine #130:[10] "The artist/photographer's zine, self-described as "a book of naked men," features photographic pictorials of men in various stages of undress, conjuring up the golden era of physique publications like The Male Figure, Adonis and Physique Pictorial, but with a contemporary edge. There's hair, beards, tattoos, and brawn - it's balls and all, unadulterated masculinity at its peak."

In 2013 his first coffee table book entitled, Starrfucker was published by Bruno Gmünder Verlag. The book features photography from every past issue of Starrfucker Magazine with a foreword by Venfield 8.

In 2011 he started Jeremy Lucido Photography[11] in a loft in downtown Los Angeles. As popularity of his portrait work with the rise of Starrfucker Magazine his bookings increased for both commercial and private work. In 2015 Jeremy created an online store[12] for his fine art portrait work.
