Ellen Stagg, a New York based artist, knows how to take a sexy photograph. Her photos have been described as too “artsy” for porn and too “adult” for commercial. And that leaves Stagg hanging somewhere in the middle. Which could be a tough place to be when it comes to finding success. But thanks to the internet, she’s been able to showcase her stockpile of erotic images on her website, staggstreet.com. The site has seen international exposure, including gallery shows all over the world, a documentary series on IFC.com & karmalooptv.com, photoshoots for Penthouse and a show on Playboy TV. Not bad. Stagg brings her real life working experience as an artist to Asbury Park’s Parlor Gallery, where she has exhibited in the past, for a new series that’s sure to get your juices flowing.

“Talk with the Artist” featuring Ellen Stagg will take place on Saturday, March 23rd from 6:30-9:30PM. The lecture will include a presentation by Stagg about her work and experiences as an artist. You’ll also be able to ask whatever question is on your mind. The price for this talk is $30 per person.


Stagg began her pursuit of photography at age 16 and instantly fell in love with the art form. She has a BFA in Photography from the School of Visual Arts and has worked extensively in advertising and fashion.

She’s always been drawn to erotic art & her muse, model Justine Joli, introduced her to many models from the adult industry which has helped catapult her career.

But that’s not all. Stagg will also host “Camera Club” on Sunday, March 24th at 1PM. The class will focus on technique and will feature Stagg’s models Evelyn Vinyl and Poison Ivory. For 30 minutes you will learn from Stagg on her approach to shooting and interacting with her models. You will have a chance to shoot both models as well.


Settings will include a bed, couch, windows, bathroom and more to make your own erotic art with. You will each get private time with each model and Stagg will walk around checking in with your shots. The class is $100 and when you sign up you will get a FREE ticket to “Talk with the Artist”. And don’t forget to bring your a camera and a flash. 5 student minimum to sign up of the class, 10 students max so hurry up.

Due to the nature of “Talk with the Artist”, pre-registration is required for attendance. You can register through the gallery or you can purchase tickets at ticketweb.com

Parlor Gallery is located at 717 Cookman Ave. in Asbury Park. Contact them at 732-869-0606. For more info visit parlor-gallery.com.
