Naked Ambition, an R-Rated Look At An X-Rated Industry. Mmmmm, doesn’t that sound risque? Celebrity photographer Michael Grecco, who is one of the top photographers in the world who has created iconic portraits of the most recognized entertainment stars, recently Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, Will Ferrell, Penelope Cruz and Teri Hatcher and had his award-winning featured in Esquire, Time, Entertainment Weekly and Maxim, has decided to take on the “Oscars of Porn.”
He has taken his love for photographer to a whole new level, with a documentary about the making of his X-Rated coffee table book and a trip to the annual Adult Video News Awards (The “Oscars of Porn”) in Las Vegas. Grecco exposes the realities of the multi-billion dollar porn industry, through his lense.
