Pin-Up-Girls-Art-Paintings-26From the Vargas girls and Betty Grable to Bettie Page, Marilyn Monroe and Dita Von Teese, the early to mid 20th century pinups are considered by many to have played a positive role in the post-Victorian rejection of bodily shame and helped bring about a healthy respect for female beauty.

But enough of the intellectual. I’m a sixties baby myself and I grew up with the light-hearted titillation of the retro pinup, and I want to invite you all to join me in this fun filled exploration of the cheeky and provocative 1940s, 50s and 60s.


pinup-beachWe’ll have a host of colourful props and outfits, and we’ll crank up the old  bebop tunes so our very sassy Kylie Alexandra De Costa (modelling) can channel some Bettie Page and Dita Von Teese for your photographic delight. Bring your cameras and your sense of humour. This will be an afternoon of colour, cheekiness, frivolity and more than a few laughs.

What is the agenda
  • Introductions and short discussion of genre and proceedings
  • We’ll get set and take turns shooting with Kylie in studio
  • Short tea and coffee break for interval
  • Continue explorations of props and genre
