John Travis, a gay pornographic film director and former movie studio owner, has died.

Director Chi Chi LaRue announced the death on Twitter:

Travis’s career began as a photographer when full frontal nudity was still prohibited. During the early 1970s in San Francisco, he began experimenting with 8mm loops. After becoming friends with Chuck Holmes, the founder of Falcon, he began directing for them. He also directed for Brentwood Studios, Huge Video and Catalina Video. And then in 1992, he formed Studio 2000 with producer Scott Masters.

Some of his famous films include The Other Side of Aspen 2, A Matter of SizeBig GunsThe Young and the Hung and Powertool.

Travis is best known for discovering Jeff Stryker, a popular performer in the industry. Travis molded Stryker into the widely recognized performer he became, whose major asset brought him a worldwide following. The two men also dated for two and half years during the onset of Stryker’s career.
