Blink-182’s Travis Barker is no stranger to nudity. Since he and his Blink bandmates ran naked through L.A. in their “What’s My Age Again?” video, he knows just what it takes to perform well in the buff. That made him a perfect candidate to play photographer-for-a-day in Playboy’s famous Santa Monica photo studio with his Playmate squeeze Shanna Moakler, Miss December 2001. “Daddy’s making Momma look hot!” Travis crowed as Shanna hung her head off the feather bed, tossing out a veiled clue about the couple’s future. (Seven months after this shoot was in the can, their son Landon was born.) At the end of the day, with Travis completely spent, the panty-less Shanna commandeered the camera and posed Travis in bed for his own series of cheesecake photos. When it was all over, Shanna praised her boy toy photographer. “He’s been pretty good. He got a little naughty, but then he brought it back to being nice and sweet.”
“I hope she likes what I did,” Travis responded.
When the model’s going home with you, Travis, you know you’ve done a great job.
