Member of Adult Paparazzi Allan K Dies of Heart Attack
HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Adult industry photographer and regular XBIZ contributor Allan K has died of an apparent heart attack at the age of 35 this past Friday.
The funeral is scheduled for May 26 with a memorial service set for May 30.
A familiar face at adult movie industry events, Allan — not to be confused with another adult photographer that uses the name “Stills by Alan” — captured the best of the lively porn scene during movie shoots and on red carpet lines at various parties and events around Los Angeles.
A regular with the EMM Agency, which specializes in compiling photographs of favorite porn stars, Allan K worked for 10 years among the Porn Valley elite and enjoyed the late nights and pretty smiles that are a part of the chaotic scene.
Dominic Ace of the EMM Agency said, “This is sad news indeed. Alan had just shot a set on the Bluebird movie ‘Sprint,’ and he was looking forward to being on the set of X-Play’s ‘Not Charlie’s Angels XXX’ next week.”
An official statement from the EMM Agency reads: “Everyone here sends their condolences to Allen’s family and friends. Allen was a good friend whose spirit will sadly be missed, as well as being an integral part of our team from the very beginning, words cannot express our gratitude for everything he has done for us, we will be forever grateful to him.”
Director Will Ryder who last saw Allan K on the set of his production “Not Mash XXX” said, “I am really sad to hear this news.”
“He was a very nice guy and often times pitched in and rolled up his sleeves and went to work on our sets helping out wherever he thought we needed assistance without being asked. Just a real pleasant man and we will miss him,” Ryder said.
The funeral will take place May 26 at 9:30 a.m. at the Forest Lawn Cemetery, 6300 Forest Lawn Dr., in Los Angeles. A memorial service will take place 11 a.m.-2 p.m. on May 30 at Iman, 3376 Motor Ave., Los Angeles.
