Elmer Batters: from the tip of the toes to the top of the hose. When I first read the title of this book I thought “awesome, I love thigh highs!” A lot of my pinup work revolves around retro or vintage lingerie and thigh highs are an essential part of that. Heck I’ve seen pinups of a woman wearing a bathing suit with thigh highs, which is seriously pushing the idea that they go with everything, but if you can’t do that with pinup where can you read more

Bearskin Beauty

Here’s the “shot on film” version of the bearskin, hunting pinup I did with Hannah Noel. Shot this in my garage studio with Balcar strobes.

I put together the set, wardrobe, and props excepting the bearskin which Hannah brought.

I was inspired by a Gil Elvgren pinup along a similar theme and I hope we did it justice. Shot with my Bronica 6×6 camera on Fuji Neopan Acros. Printed 8×10 and scanned.

Latest Pinups to roll out of my darkroom


Still chugging along here. Here’s some of the latest pin up prints I’ve worked up.

80s sheer mirror pinup
Roberta Pedon Pinup
Hardly Working Office Pinup
Bijou Framed

OMG look at all those negatives!

Boxes stacked on boxes between full filing cabinets. Drool….

Bette Page negs alone are worth north of $700ea! As a b&w printer it’d be magical to just have access to that collection for a year or more. So much pinup and movie star fun could be had. I can’t imagine what the auction house valued that collection at. It bottles my mind.
