New Camera, Who Dis?!

Hey everyone!

Vanessa here! 🙂 I just received my new Canon Powershot G7X Mark II late yesterday evening, and I am so excited for the new video possibilities! I did a lot of research for the perfect cam that meets my needs, and although there’s a wealth of info online, it’s been a bit of a learning curve when it comes to non-webcam specs and terminology. lol ;p

I did a few tests today to acclimate to the new camera, get a feel for lighting and sound, and so far, it’s pretty amazing! I cannot wait to start using this camera for future announcements, tutorials, and live at shows that we attend.

Thank you to all who have continued to watch these videos. I look forward to getting the hang of my new equipment and sharing more with everyone in our community!

PRIVATE SESSIONS – TERA PATRICK

RESUME

Multiple-award winning actress, Model, AVN Hall-of-Fame Inductee, Author, Producer, Mom-preneur, Cam Model w/ the Asian Persuasion. 

PART ONE

PART TWO

I’ll be totally honest and admit that I was nervous as all hell, but so delighted to interview Tera Patrick- an adult performer of nearly 2 decades, savvy businesswoman, a name that’s recognized among even the most vanilla of households, and now cam model. (Also, ‘hello…Asian girl power!‘ )

Tera has continued to evolve her business following her retirement from shooting hardcore adult film (circa 2010), along with the ever changing landscape of adult. So when I noticed Tera’s live cam on Streamate a few years ago, it piqued my curiosity. She is not the first adult star celeb to grace the digital pages of the Streamate Network (cue Rocco Siffredi and Amy Fisher to name a couple), but to really build a foundation and thrive on cam, as Tera is aware, takes commitment, consistency, and time.

Being that nearly everyone and their mother (like, literally) in our industry, from pornstars to producers and affiliates, have been jumping aboard the live cam-train for the past handful of years, I was curious to see just how Tera was applying this trendy “new” medium to her own mega brand, and adapting to the unpredictable, unscripted world of live cam.

A daughter of immigrants, Tera explained that her parents have a super hard work ethic, which she herself inherited (… along with a gorgeous bone structure and legs for days. ‘Yeah, we’re not jealous at all’). This work ethic is super handy when it comes to the, at times, challenging world of cams: one does not merely “kill it” overnight by  logging off after an hour and calling it a day. Even for adult royalty like Tera, it takes persistence and so much more. Tera has immersed herself into research from lighting, to branding, and how others are running their shows. She explains, “We can all learn from each other…that’s what I love about this community.”

“Sissy boys, subs”… Tera seems to have a firm grip on the everyday cam lingo. “SPH…JOI…CEI”… as in Cum-Eating-Instruction. She totally schooled me with the last one. *nervous laughter* What inexperienced cam enthusiasts will eventually come to realize is that camming isn’t just a facet of porn. It’s an artform that individuals pour themselves into and stay up late toiling over. It’s a lifestyle, sometimes isolating, that individuals connect over and share about on forums on a daily basis. But with that lifestyle come some realities that you don’t read about in the articles that rage about camming- realities that a lot of models experience every day like feeling emotionally drained if a viewer is being a total jerk and telling her she is ugly. Or maybe sh*t is going down in Twitterland and people are being completely negative. Tera advocates for performers to remember to “have a life outside of this life,” and stepping away to take care of themselves- a practice that she also lives by.

During our chat, Tera talks candidly about her background, her experiences as a blossoming cam model, her business model at present, and much more. In true Tera fashion, grab a glass of wine, light some candles, maybe even slip into your fave lingerie and tune into Parts One and Two of our exclusive “Private Sessions” interview with Ms. Tera now!
