The gifted filmmaker, who was on hand Sunday night at NightMoves’ 30th annual Awards event to accept the honor for his illustrious achievements, is commemorating 23 years of outstanding work not only a Director, Producer, Photographer and Videographer for the industry’s top studios, but also for excellence in his mainstream endeavors, where he has branched out into photography for dozens of Covers and Centerfolds for publications such as FHM and Playboy, including the October Cover of FHM Australia, and the October Playmate Layout for Jenna Starr in Playboy Sweden, as well as dozens of international news outlets this year.
“I’d like to thank all of the performers who have worked with me, all the crew that has worked with me, all my friends and Mentors and especially all the companies that have hired me all these years. In Life, in Work and in FB Groups there will always be people who will tell you that you can’t do things. NEVER listen to them,” said Long.
“When people tell you that you can’t do things, it doesn’t mean YOU can’t do it, it means THEY can’t, nothing more. NEVER limit yourself or your dreams to what other people will never accomplish. Blaze your own trail and Live Your Best Life and everything else will fall into place.” said Long in a heartfelt acceptance speech that moved the crowd.
“To be able to achieve success is amazing, of course, but to be able to sustain it and grow over the years until one day you’re on stage accepting a Lifetime Achievement Award, it’s more than I could have ever imagined. Thank you to NightMoves, as well the performers, crew and companies that I’ve been so blessed to work with, for believing in me.”
Long has also expanded into professional work for his own Mainstream TV shows, Billboards for Nightclubs & Casinos, Ads for numerous mainstream companies and Co-Branded Partnership opportunities and Social Media posts with Automotive Performance companies featured on the stable of custom Show Cars and Show Bikes he has hand built.
