The 1950’s was a great era for design, cars, fashion and of course Pin Up Photography and models. Today Vintage fashion is as popular as ever. Today the demand for specialist fashion and accessory is inspiring designers around Australia selling online, markets and in store.
Pin Up Photography
What is Pin Up photography? The style has been bought the mainstream by the likes of Dita Von Teese and many other burlesque celebrities who have developed the art through pin-up photography over the years. A favourite style of actresses and models for decades, and now women have embraced it to express their feminine self, beauty and sensuality.
Now so many women have taken to Instagram, Pinterest and Facebook to show off their vintage style. You may be thinking how to do a pinup shoot of your own?
I work with some of the best vintage s and rockabilly hair and makeup in Melbourne and Ballarat. Depending on the style and the look you are after I can help match up the right stylist. I’m always happy to work with your styling or stylist. Need more inspiration? Here is a list of pin up magazines for ideas
