Had a lovely time today with October on my first shoot. She made my hair and makeup look amazing ( got home and the hubby love the look�) felt right at ease and once I relaxed the experience was so much fun. October is so lovely and the studio is fantastic. If you have a inner pin up inside this experience is a most. So my Christmas and birthday list is now vouchers for further visits. Thank you October.

I wish I could give the pinup academy more stars than just 5! This was honestly one of the best things I’ve ever done and October made me look and feel amazing! She helped me with poses and made sure my hair and makeup was perfect at all times! Her and her partner/photographer, Si were really friendly and professional and made me feel totally at ease and relaxed during my time there! This was booked as a Christmas present and it was the best one yet, and was totally worth every penny my partner spent on it! I just can not wait to go back for another shoot, hopefully soon!

What an absolutely bang on experience. Everyone of theses reviews is right, you couldn’t ask for a better couple to make the day that good. October and Si are perfection.

Just wish I’d saved a bit more and bought the next package up!
Next time….

I am over the moon with the photos that The Pinup Academy have done for my business, My Retro Closet. It was my first time paying for a professional product shoot and the images have surpassed all my expectations. Great communication throughout, a stunning model & styling, perfect editing & a quick turn around. and You’ve made my garments look a million bucks! Can’t wait to arrange my next shoot!

Was feeling very apprehensive about my make over, but October and Si made us feel very welcome and I soon relaxed, they are lovely people and I had a fab time! October was on hand all the time to help with poses which was invaluable, it is definitely harder than it looks! Above all I loved my transformation I couldn’t believe I could look like that! Thankyou both so much , Deb and Paul xx
