Pin-up Shoots

Our most popular style of shot! Cheeky, fun and flirty but still modest!

Picture House Portraits is best known for pin-up photography, and our work has been published  worldwide in magazines, on websites and on social media. Some of our images have been used as centrefolds in magazines, and we've worked with a number of the competitors in the Miss Pinup UK contest as well as the winner of Miss Global Pinup Syndicate 2016.


We love the flirty fun of the old-style pin-up artists of the 1930s, 40s and 50s, particularly the work of the masters, Gil Elvgren and Alberto Vargas, and we've spent over a decade amassing a vast number of authentic period props so that we can emulate their style. While there are a number of studios in the UK that offer shoot pin-up work, many of them use Photoshop to place the model into the scene, but at Picture House Portraits, we have the props to do it properly!


We can also do a cheeky couples pin-up shoot, and with so many props to use you're bound to be spoiled for choice for fun ideas! We can promise you that the shoot itself will be great fun due to our laid back but professional approach, and the memories of the day will be as important to you as the resultant images!

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