Pinup and vintage makeovers, Bristol and Bath

With years of experience shooting burlesque beauties, vintage vixens and scorching pinups I can offer a brilliant makeover service. Whether you live and breathe retro to pinup culture or just want to see how you’d look if you were at the centre of Golden age of Hollywood or a 1950s pinup, I offer a makeover experience with a difference.

Whether it’s a treat for yourself or the ultimate gift for a special someone, you’ll have images to last long after the fun of shoot itself.

Vintage style guru, Gem works with a client on a makeover photo shoot.
Using stylists and makeup artists drawn from the UK’s burgeoning burlesque scene or vintage subculture, you’ll be amazed just how amazing you can look. Unlike other makeovers, the pocture will never really date, evoking classic eras that continue to thrill and intrigue down the decades.

Your vintage/pinup photo shoot is tailor-made just for you and may take place in a local photo studio or out on some suitably glamourous location. Your favourite photographs from your session will be professionally retouched, using all the tricks of the beauty trade.

The full vintage/pinup makeover experience £425*

You’ll enjoy a full makeover experience including hair, makeup and posing tips from a vintage stylist. We have access to a great range of vintage and retro clothing but if you’d like to keep your outfit can recommend options from wonderful vintage reproduction clothing labels or obtain them on your behalf. Your photo shoot experience will last 2-3 hours including the makeover and enough time to ensure there are a selection of mind-blowing images in the can.

Even if you’ve never been at the heart of a photo shoot before, or have never enjoyed a make over – don’t worry. Any nerves will be calmed during a relaxed fun-packed session.
