Had a great time yesterday with Simon and October. The make over was amazing ! I didn’t recognize myself !!
And the photoshoot was easy going and a lot of fun
Would recommend it to every pin up wannabe!

I had a shoot with the pinup academy on Saturday and I absolutely enjoyed it. My make up and hair by October was outstanding and after the shoot I got tons of compliments from people on the street. Si and October are the perfect team behind the camera, they gave perfect directions on how to pose me to make the photos look their best, and they made me feel super comfortable. If I had more time in the U.K I would definitely continue to go to them.

We had a Studio Lighting Day at The Pinup Academy today … Excellent day nice steady paced very detailed with full explanations and trying to learn the rules and break them !!! laid back but professional approach with lots of information on every angle and how to manipulate the light to capture the perfect shot. Si & October made us feel very welcome and relaxed that the day flew by. coming out full of confidence & fresh ideas boosting our knowledge & skills to show in our own work.
Thanks again

Had hair and makeup done for my Christmas do yesterday
October was great, super friendly and helpful, great sense of humour and hair and makeup was fab. My main concern was my hair staying up from 2pm to 2am as it often drops but it stayed up all night
Definitely going back for a shoot soon

First time I had ever stepped into a photographic studio and as a complete novice was guided brilliantly by Si in the use of the lighting rigs , light meters etc and how to set them up .. the models who were all well known published pinup’s were brilliant who were also giving guidance to up and coming models and we’re a great laugh to in the process definitely would go back later in the year for another workshop ..

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 would recommend The Pinup Academy to anyone and everyone! With their combined experience, retro studio and fab makeovers you’re guaranteed an amazing photo-shoot!
