The Bootylord is calling it quits.
Bad news guys: you’ll be seeing a lot less booty pics on your Instagram feed from now on because photographer The Fame Grayson has decided to hang em’ up (and by “em’” I mean his camera). That’s right, “your girlfriend’s favorite photographer” is retiring from the photography game once and for all. Grayson made the announcement via his Instagram page Tuesday evening:
“Thanks for the support these last three years, you guys have been so amazing to me.
I will no longer be apart of social media or any events and retiring my camera.
Wish you guys the best.
xoxo Grayson 💕”
It’s been a helluva ride for the 24 year old photographer, who’s no stranger to shooting and hanging out with the industry’s hottest models from Jessica Weaver and Michelle Yee to Atitahn Pisalsas and Maddy Belle. Luckily Grayson has always been willing to share his photos and wholesome shenanigans with the world on his Instagram. And by “wholesome shenanigans,” we mean posting pictures of himself surrounded by a bevy of rear ends as far as the eyes can see.
Foxy Asia Magazine caught up with Grayson for a proper farewell where he shared his reasons for leaving, how he got into photography, and the story behind his “Bootylord” nickname.
Photographer: Fame Grayson – @thefamegrayson
Hey Grayson, welcome to Foxy Asia Magazine. So we got to ask, how’d you get the nickname Bootylord?
I actually got it a year after I stared shooting from a random fan that was at an event at a club! He went on about how I always took selfies with the booty! Hahaha
So how did you get into photography in the first place?
Hmm everything I did stemmed from a bad break up I had around 2014. Just wanted to do something different and keep my mind off of it while creating some dope art everyone could enjoy. Bought my first camera and the rest is history!
You hang out with a bunch of extremely hot women. What’s the craziest behind the scenes story you can share with us from your photo shoots?
Craziest behind the scenes would have to be the after party! I usually invite everyone out after photoshoots and it gets crazy. A little out of hand sometimes, but makes for a great story after haha. We would usually go to a bar or club and I’d get a table for everyone and party until the morning.
Alright, so we’re bummed out to hear you’re retiring. Can you tell us why you’re leaving the game?
Yeah of course! I am just going to focus on myself and my personal life. Finish school, and travel a bit. This lifestyle can get pretty hectic and I want to be under the radar and outta the public’s eye. I’m very appreciative of everyone’s support! Much love and god bless!
Any final words you’d like to say to your fans and followers?
Just want to say thank you for all the support for the last 3 years. This was an amazing life changing experience and would not have been possible without everyone.
Thank you to all the cool photographers I got to meet and work with.
HUGE thank you to all the beautiful models I got to create with. I love every single one of them.
Follow your dreams and dream big.
Don’t waste any time trying to be like anybody but yourself, because the things that make you strange are the things that make you powerful.
This is a sad day for us all, but at least we’ll always have Grayson’s Instagram to remind us of happier times.
