It started as keyword research for my photo expose on Gigante SF, Frisco Robbie’s Sunday weekly Latin hip hop and go go romp and stomp at Q-Bar in the Castro, SF.
Two hours later and I’m still scouring Instagram and drooling on all the eye candy that came up on that one search! I’ll share a summary of the research at the end of the post.
Meanwhile, here’s my favorite top ten:

I've met a lot of truly awesome guys through my work in nightlife, but @baconlvr aka Boomer Banks is one of the most genuine and big hearted of them all ❤️❤️❤️ Always sweet and personable, never change babe! His star continues to rise, and it's always great to have him home for a bit in NYC…and just so happens we were both wearing @kicksagat by @francoisssagat that night – I swear it wasn't planned! 😄 Big thanx to @theonlymadd for this cute pic & make sure you guys stop by @ritznewyork on Wednesday nights for Maddelynn Hatter's new weekly event, TURN(t)! #NYCGayNightlife #TurnT #TheRitz #Latenight #BoomerBanks #BrotherlyLove #LoveMyFriends #KickSagat #iloveNY #francoisssagat #CityBoys #GoGoBoy #wednesdayNight #NeverADullMoment #ShowMeYourUnderwear #Mensstyle #ManhattanNights #instagay #instapic #instafriends #instalike #instadaily #instamen

YouTube Is Fabulous
Isn’t YouTube wonderful? You can find obscure, creepy things like car crashes, or wildly, crazy popular viral videos from YouTube megastars like 16 year old Fred Figgelhorn.
I like it because it’s a great showcase for my photography and video adventures. I’m on a mission to jump start my YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/photojimsf.
You Can Learn Anything On YouTube
Just from watching tutorials, YouTube has taught me how to make my videos more interesting and watchable with nice thumbnails, editing, adding free music, adding fan funding calls to action, and some SEO tips and tricks in the description section.
My strategy is to take turns alternating between my most and least popular videos, applying what I’ve learned. There’s over 200 videos on my channel to update, here’s the first six. I hope you enjoy watching as much as I enjoyed making!
Six Updated And Refreshed Videos
Thanks For Watching
Well! If you made it this far, thank you so much for watching! Let me know if you have any tips, hints, suggestions, constructive criticism. Or even if you hate them and think their a pile of stupid ca-ca-poot. What would you like to see more of on my channel? Where’s your favorite exotic gay destination? What’s your favorite gay club? Who’s your favorite go go dancer or porn star? Leave a comment or private message me at:
Fan Funding Is Fabulous
While you’re at it, consider helping me fan fund your ideas into action with a sponsorship. Really, anything from $1 to $500 will go towards:
$ Purchasing the new Samsung Galaxy S7
$ Covering hotel, meal, and airfare costs to far flung paradises
$ Tipping, or bribing good looking mahouts, tuk tuk drivers, waiters, food vendors, go go boys, etc., for pictures
Are you in?
I’d like to fan fund Photojimsf’s adventures with a sponsorship via:
THANK YOU SO MUCH!
I look forward to working with you.
Jim James aka Photojimsf
P.S. — There’s also a YouTube fan funding option in the upper right corner of the videos (hover the cursor it will appear). The same link is also on my channel home page:
Photojimsf’s Gift Shop
Guess what? I have a photo gift shop! Framed or unframed prints, greeting cards, t-shirts, coffee mugs, all kinds of photo souvenirs from my far flung adventures. Take a browse through my Travel, People, San Francisco Club Events, Flower, and Idol Garden galleries:
Three Headed Elephant — In the “Idol Garden” galleries gift shop.
