Pinup Workshop:

"Betty and Darling were really reassuring and just made me feel hot," admits Sara Jane. She's still raving about the class - from the props and makeup to the real tricks to being photographed, she can take the experience into her everyday life. And she's thinking of going back with a group of friends. Katie, too, is all raves about playing dress up: "I didn't think I could look that girlie in a photo. It's a rarity. I can't wait to show them off."

And for me, well, I liked reaching outside of who I thougth I was, as Betty says, creating a sort of alter ego. Or maybe I was creating a whole new way of looking at myself, big hips and all. If you see me on stage soon, twirling pasties and eating fire, well, you'll know what I mean."

I am indeed 110% satisfied... You made me feel very comfortable, which is not easy for me when I'm not wearing much clothing! The posing instruction was great and taught me how to make the most of my body type (and hide my "yucky bits") but what helped the most was your guidance during the picture taking, I don't think I would have had many pictures I liked without you showing me how to pose myself frame by frame. I liked so many of the photos and the ones I didn't I could clearly see how a different pose or facial expression would have made the difference.

I've always considered myself unphotogenic, but now I see that I just needed to learn how to work the camera, it's all about how you pose. As you know I'm recently divorced, and you made me feel beautiful and sexy again, for that I will be eternally grateful. Thank you for giving me back my confidence!

Wow is all I can say! I can't believe how many pictures we took and how many of them actually turned out great. I usually don't like pictures of myself that much. I still have to sort through and pick my favorites, but for the most part I was really impressed with how they turned out. Your preparation made me feel really comfortable and I had a great time. I really enjoyed the experience and I am so thankful that I came across your website. Thanks again for such a wonderful experience!

I had a great experience with the workshop as a whole. I learned about my body, and I gained significant confidence in front of the camera. The day of the photoshoot... I felt comfortable and happy, and this translated into a ton of great photographs, a completely new experience for me.
