Contemporary. Classy. Sexy.
What is Modern Bombshell?
Portland Pin-Ups is the west coast’s premiere 1950’s inspired photography studio, and we wanted to offer stunning, beautiful portraits to ladies who seek something a little more modern, daring and different from our usual 50’s cheesecake. For our Modern Bombshell session, you will be pampered and looked after by our creative team, with huge, rocked out hair and gorgeous make-up. Bring along your favorite outfits – dress to the nines as you would for that date of a lifetime – and you will then be gently coached with flattering poses and relaxed looks.
Why should I choose Portland Pin-Ups? LOTS of photographers do ‘boudoir’?
Great question. Lots of photographers do shoot ‘boudoir’. While there are many that advertise it, very very few can actually do it. Boudoir photography is very popular and anyone with a camera claims to be a photographer, yet relaxing a subject, and creating an environment to produce stunning portraits isn’t as easy as just aiming a lens at someone’s face and clicking. Portland Pin-Ups artist, Mike Long, has been a photographer for over 25 years. Classically trained to photograph weddings, including how to pose a lady correctly, he went on to capture over 200 special days before concentrating his creative mind on pin-up photography. In an industry overrun with new photographers, Mike stands out as an expert in the field and regularly speaks at conventions and workshops. His relaxed posing style will have you looking like a Bombshell, and feeling fabulous. Alongside his photographic career, Mike also spent the best part of 25 years working as a professional retoucher for clients such as Banana Republic, Apple, Adidas and Nike. Long before Photoshop was even a sparkle in Adobe’s eye, Mike was using his retouching skills to polish artworks. While many photographers these days go with a heavy hand and over retouch pictures to death, with bad body reshaping and shoddy skin work, Mike will finish your artworks to perfection.
Sounds great. How much?
Ah – our most common question! A little like asking a real estate agent “How much for a house”? Depends on where, how many bedrooms etc. Like a bag from Louis Vuitton, or a shiny ring from Tiffany’s, artwork from Portland Pin-Ups is a hand crafted thing of beauty.
Our Modern Bombshell session is $399 and includes a style consultation, hair styling and make-up artistry by amazing creative team and multiple outfit changes during your session. Please contact the studio for full artwork pricing guide.
