The adventures of the most unique pin-up studio on the West Coast
RING A DING DINGRing in the New Year! Kick 2020 firmly between the legs, and welcome in 2021. A personal message from Mike, owner, photographer, artist and chief bottle washer of Portland Pin-Ups:Thank you all, clients, fans and friends of Portland Pin-Ups. This past year has certainly been a trying one for all of us, and for the studio it’s been the roughest ride yet. Five full months of forced shut-down meant saying goodbye to our little permanent studio home, putting all the pin-up props in storage and crossing fingers and hoping for the best. We lost our blonde Bombshe!!, Johanna, as she and her family ran away to live in Texas! I think we came out of it stronger, leaner and with fresh eyes and the last couple of months getting back into the swing of things have been awesome. Of course I couldn’t do all this without my amazing creative team of Erienne and Nicky and while 2020 was very quiet in terms of new artwork from any of the Bombshe!!s, once you are a Portland Pin-Ups Bombshe!!, you are for life. It’s kind of like the Mafia! So we will, at some point, see new art from Nicky, Erienne, Katie, Johanna and Kim.If you are a past client, thank you. From the bottom (and top!) of my heart, creating beautiful artworks for you has been a true joy.If you are thinking of jumping in and being a client…thank you! And what’s stopping you!If you are just someone who likes to look at my work, thank you. I appreciate every single one of you.2020 is (soon) going to be history. Tomorrow is a new day. Bring it on.At Portland Pin-Ups, we believe that EVERY woman is a bombshell, and we love our clients! We appreciate that visiting a professional photographer is rare these days and thank you for choosing us to capture your beauty.Professional hair styling, make-up artistry, lighting, 20 years of posing experience and industry leading retouching…the Portland Pin-Ups Magic. It's why you don't go to the guy who got a camera for Christmas….For curious photographers:Cameras by Nikon. Lights by Photogenic / Paul C Buff. Posing and artwork by 25 years of experience….
