Pinup is my favorite genre to shoot for a number of reasons. Outwardly it seems simple right? Get a costume, practice cheesy poses and shoot right? This is a start. Pinup includes themes, and detail with hair/makeup, great posing and themed sets to really make the image pop. Add the timeless classic qualities to pinup and when done right and you will get images that can be used for a long time.
My first commercial shoots were pinup
I consider myself pretty lucky to have run into a local coffee shop owner that was working to theme her coffee shop as classic pinup. I was able to work with her staff in putting together some great images they used for advertising. I also made some long-time friends from this group who I continue to shoot with. While not my own personal best work, they continue to be some of my favorite images.
How much do I love pinup?
You can learn about pinup from some full time models and published photographers in my old podcast the pinup podcast. If you love pinup, and want to collaborate on a pinup shoot, contact us and we can work out the details
(I will add more images as I upload some model features)
