About ME

During this workshop, you will go on location with the Boudoir Louisville team for an actual pinup girl photo shoot. For this type of shoot, you will learn how to scout and set up a true pinup location. This type of photo shoot normally includes a great vintage vehicle or two. If you'd rather learn how to shoot classic, Elvgrin style pinup IN STUDIO, we have that workshop available as well. Either way, we will show you everything from vintage hair and makeup to lighting, posing and everything in between. 
 We always end up talking about best business practices as well as marketing as well.

You will be in studio for one of our Pinup Girl photo shoots from start to finish.  When the model arrives, our hair and makeup artist will go to work. During this time, our team will style the shoot. When the model is ready, we start shooting. When I say "WE", I mean you and I. Bring your camera! The entire photo shoot will be a questions & answers / hands-on kinda thing. Because this is a one-on-one workshop, we can spend as little or as much time on any given topic. Together, we will shoot several pinup outfits and sets in studio with a variety of lighting, props and techniques. We always end up talking about best business practices as well as marketing as well.

That's right kids! For this workshop YOU will be the student as well as the model. Bring your fancy pinup clothes and experience what it's like to do a pinup girl photo shoot, from in front of the camera! During your pinup girl photo shoot, I will explain each and every thing that I'm doing along the way. You will gain knowledge in posing and lighting while having your very own Boudoir Louisville photo shoot! Shooting pinup is just as much about the metal comfort of your client as it is the physical. Having first hand experience posing will give you a better understanding of what is going through your client's head.
