Pin Up! Yes, I’m doing more of it and about time! I’m offering a new pin up package to my clients so I’ve been buying props and lingerie all week ready for my test shoots. I’m so excited that I can’t see straight for ideas! Gaaaa it’s annoying because I’ve become a scatter brain! So this leads me onto my next bit of exciting chat.
Casting Call - I need some lovely ladies who are interested in pin up, whether they be models, dancers, burlesque entertainers or plain old ordinary folk like me to be dolled up, dressed up and popped onto some sets that I’ll be building in classic pin up themes.
Now I’ve got a very good idea in my mind of the image I am looking to achieve for each scene. So I am interested in bright red hair, pale blonde and black/brown. If coloured hair the roots need to be minimal. No fake tan please as that is the opposite of what I am going for. I want naturally pale, mid or dark skins, just no fakers.
I have a selection of lingerie and outfits to use in sizes 8-14 at present but would encourage people to apply who already have a variety of outfits, shoes and bits in this style.
Your personality would need to be bubbly, outgoing and cheeky to match the look and definitely not camera shy. A knowledge of pin up poses, the ability to pose and act the part essential and definitely be able to have a laugh!
The participants will be happy for the images to be used on my website, online advertising, print advertising, promotion and on merchandise e.g. limited edition posters etc.
Ladies will need to be comfortable in lingerie/swimsuit and be happy to have the stylist and a male assistant/photographer in training present at the photo shoot.
The shoots will be taking place over the coming months and dates will be arranged to suit the selected ladies schedules, the stylists and myself.
In return for the chosen ladies services, they will receive:-
- Hair and make-up professionally done in a style to suit the theme
- Photo shoot on the set chosen for their saucy look
- 4 fully retouched images of their choice provided on disc for personal and promotional use OR 4 12x8” prints
- Refreshments provided
