The place to go  for pin-up, vintage and classic Hollywood  photography!

Fully equipped, internationally published, award-winning studio

Welcome to Picture House Portraits -

the home of vintage and pin-up in the north west!

Picture House Portraits is recognised as being one of the best studios in the country for vintage and pin-up photography. Our images have been published in magazines in the UK, Europe and the USA, and our work has also been included in a number of calendars.

Try your hand as a pin-up goddess!

Whether you're an established model or simply want to see how you'd look as a 50s-style pin-up icon, Picture House Portraits is the place to come! Our painstakingly created vintage sets together with our extensive collection of props and varied wardrobe ensure we give you the most authentic pin-up experience possible. If you're trying pin-up for the first time, we have a laid-back, no pressure approach and can guide you through everything you need to know, from outfits to poses, and we can also have a hair and make-up artist on hand if required.

Does movie stardom beckon?

If you've always wanted to be a movie starlet or a Hollywood hunk, look no further! At Picture House Portraits, we've perfected the art of replicating those famous classic movie star photos of the old Hollywood era, so now is your time to shine!

Don't forget - we also do vintage family shoots, contemporary shoots and weddings too!

We have a wealth of children's props at the studio, from the usual child's benches, teddies and soft toys to pedal cars, planes, rocking horses, dolls' houses and even vintage train sets! Unlike a lot of studios, we encourage families to play with the props, have lots of fun and really enjoy the shoot, as we find this gives us the very best images that our customers will treasure forever. If vintage really isn't your thing, don't worry - we're just as adept at shooting contemporary images! Why not take a look at our portfolio to see some of our work?
