Brad Posey is an American artist and video director. While studying at University of California, Berkeley his focus shifted away from painting to photography and video, and Posey became a professional photographer in 1990. He is one of the world's most published photographers of male models, and has produced and directed videos for various independent studios.
Brad Posey has produced and directed over 80 feature-length films. He achieved some notoriety as the director and cinematographer who filmed Simon Rex (who later became an MTV VJ) in solo masturbation videos. The three controversial adult movies were rumored to be the reason Simon Rex was not retained by MTV as a VJ—though this assertion has been publicly denied by MTV. Posey appeared on various TV shows, including Entertainment Tonight, Hard Copy, and 101 Best Kept Hollywood Secrets, and in a number of magazines and newspapers, including Newsweek and The Miami Herald with his side of the controversy.
In 1997, Posey took top honors at the AVN Awards as producer/director of Hot Sessions #3, which featured Simon Rex.
In response to a prominent interview with Simon Rex that appeared in TV Guide, Jay Leno included references in his The Tonight Show monologue to Mr. Posey's provocative work with Rex.
