Happy Pinup Friday everyone and here is a blog a fan favorite with a new collection of pix from our second shoot!!!! The world famous Miss Jin N Tonic did one last big shoot before I moved to Wyoming and here are some the best from that shoot. We did at least 7 outfit changes that day and these are just a few from her portfolio. Jin is one wonderful lady and she is a plethora of talent.. She virtually has no limit to her imagination and her themes and passion for what she does runs equally as deep.. I love working with Jin and so look forward to the next time. She is one very talented and unique young lady and I love that she has shared so much of her talent with me and you her fans.
Gabby is a big superstar here on the blog and rightfully so! we did three shoots together and I have more incredible pictures to share than from most shoots combined!! This is a favorite picture from what we have done so far and couldn’t wait to post it. Enjoy!
Welcome to the first Pin up Friday of the new year!!! WHEEEEW!!! I started on Captain America 2 about 6 weeks ago and between this intense show and traveling back and forth from Wyoming to California, it has been most difficult to put up any posts this year…. My computer is in the middle of printing today so I have a few minutes to put up some new pix.
For the first Pin Up Friday of 2013 I want to introduce you all to Miss Gabby French of Bakersfield, CA. I met Gabby last November, and we did our first shoot at the Supply Sergeant in Bakersfield. This store has a load of tanks and military vehicles on their property, and they so graciously let us shoot there. Gabby is fairly new to modeling, and it was great fun to work with her. Gabby had never done pin up before but fell right into the genre with great ease and beautiful elegance. We had tons of fun; we must have shot over 1200 pictures. Our next outing was last weekend, and we tackled themes covering everything from the Air Force, to classic pinup, Star wars and we even had time to shoot a couple of Classic red dress pix from Star Trek. So many pictures and not enough time to even look at them all, HAAA! Working with Gabby is always a treat and, unless there was a mistake on my end, every picture she took turned out so perfect… she is really moving out with shoots scheduled at every turn. I’m sure her face will be one you’ll be seeing a lot of in the future and there is nothing holding her back from her modeling pursuits.
On the academic side of things, Gabby is also a full time student. Her major is clinical Psychology. I asked Gabby if she would do a little write up for the post today and here she is letting us know a little bit about herself in her own words:
Gabby French, 2013
My biggest goal in life is to be able to help people in any and every way I can. Majoring in psychology I hope to establish a career in clinical psychology and therapy work. I began modeling as a hobby with friends because I’ve always loved being in front of a camera. After discovering how much I love coming up with new creative themes to portray through pictures, I realized I would love to pursue a career in the modeling industry. Arts, music, and theatre have played an essential role in my life since I was a baby and I have always loved performing. I love modeling for themed shoots because it is a great way to take on many different roles that I would not otherwise have the opportunity to be a part of. It also challenges me to be expressively well rounded. I enjoy traveling more than anything, and plan on visiting anywhere I can possibly visit. I wish to constantly be building a resume and portfolio of experience while simultaneously seeing several new places and meeting new people for the rest of my life. I’m hoping this career path will escalate to provide me with opportunities to experience many exciting and cultural adventures. That being said I have an eclectic set of interests in the modeling field and will jump on almost every opportunity presented. There’s also a variety of ideas I would like to pursue, such as; I would love to be in magazines, establish a contract with a big company, be in commercials , videos, advertisements, billboards, and at some point even start acting. Whatever I end up doing, I want to have fun and learn along the way!

So until next time have a great weekend all and stay tuned for more soon.
Today is a different kind of pin up Friday because this one features new models presented in a vintage 1940′s format. I came across a pile of these old magazine called Yank (as in Yankee) in an antique store about a year ago and was fascinated by this treasure trove of wartime memorabilia. The magazine ran through the length of the second World War and featured stories from the front, and about the men and women who served around the globe in WWII. Each issue featured a pinup page dedicated to a model or Hollywood starlet to help boost the moral of the troops. It was great fun to take some pix of my fav pinup models and retro-ize their pictures into cover stories for those old Yank magazines. this was a lot of fun to do and I so hope you enjoy them.
Hi all and yes it’s been a long time since I have been able to get on here.. So much going on with a second move in a year and now I’m back in CA working at Disney! Woooooo never a dull moment…… Anyways in addition to it being the 35th anniversary of Close Encounters, It’s Pin Up Friday…. Today get ready for pix from two fantastic models, first up are some classics from Miss Penny Von Luck. and second from my friend Kasandra Kid. I did my first Nebraska photo shoot with Kasandra in July and we covered a few themes atop the National monument in Scottsbluff. Kas is one awesome lady and she was so much fun to work with,,, we have a few more shoots in store when I get back and the winter weather settles down so stay tuned!! I ran into Penny last night at the mall and we talking about so new themes to shoots also. it has been a couple of years since we worked together and we are anxious to do so again…. So with all that said have a great Friday and be posting more next week.
Thanks for the tons of requests for more of Miss Chelsea Rae, and she was so happy to hear that everyone liked her pictures so much…. We were just talking yesterday about our next shoot, and she is going to go for the Star Trek Red Dress theme!!! WOOOO, I can’t wait to see her take on that genre. As I had mentioned last time, Chelsea was great fun to work with and I loved all the awesome pix we got up on the flight deck. From all the comments and requests for more it seems that everyone else did too! ! Thanks again Chelsea, and here are a few more pix from last July’s USS Midway Shoot!
Welcome to Pin Up Friday!!!! WOOOO HOOOOO!!!!! Howdy all! Well, it took forever to get settled in and set up a shoot, but here at last are some pix from my first Nebraska photoshoot. When we were starting the big move to Wyoming a year ago, I did a little research on models in the area and came across KasSandraKid’s page!!! What an awesome array of pix she had in her portfolio, and I couldn’t wait to work with her. We have been planning our shoot ever since, and last month it finally happened!!! I live about 20 minutes from Nebraska where KasSandra is from, and we picked out The National Monument as our location for the big shoot!!!
She is a photographer herself and only started modeling a short while ago. She loves the fantasy realm; I was so happy that she tackled the infamous red dress theme!!! She has one incredible eye for details, and she was so creative with throwing out poses and setups for all the spots we shot at. She is fearless and ebbs confidence with every pose!!! Tons of fun to work with, and I’m so look forward to doing it again. Her man Sam came along and the two of them make for a great team! So without any more jibber jabber from me…sit on back (ed. note: Wyoming has started affecting his speech) and enjoy some of the pix from the big Nebraska shoot.

Howdy all and happy 35th to Star Wars.
The big celebration is just a few weeks a way, and Florida is getting ready!!!! Many years ago my friend Sean (of Acme Animation Archives) and I were talking about coming up with some new Star Wars art for his gallery. We came up with the idea of creating some fictional nose art for some of the various wing groups and fighters. The idea was pitched to Lucasfilms, and the word came back that we were good to go with some concepts. Well 5 years later we are running with the drawings, HAAA!
Here are some ROUGHS that we were hoping to get some feedback on so have a look and let me know what you think…. The first two are for the A-Wing group and the Leia is just an idea.
Howdy there and welcome to Pin-up Friday. It has been a long time since I’ve posted one of these, and today I am so pleased to share some pictures from last week’s shoot aboard the USS Midway with the lovely Miss Chelsea Rea.
It was the week of (July the 11-15th)…the big weekend of Comicon down in San Diego and one of the most anticipated weekends of the whole year! My buddy Nelson Broskey and I have been attending the con since the mid 80′s, and it sure grows in leaps and bounds every year. We arrived at the con for both Wednesday & Thursday’s exhibitions on the dealers floor, and on Friday we spent the day aboard the USS Midway, CV-41, for our annual Navy themed pin-up shoot. My friend Scott McGaugh cleared the way for us to shoot on the ship and we were ready to go….
This year we were very fortunate to work with Miss Chelsea Rea. Chelsea is a San Diego native and is very new to the modeling world, only just joining Model Mayhem last month. One of her life long dreams is to become a model, and I have to say that those wishes are so coming true. I saw her portfolio a week before the con; it was pure luck that both our schedules worked out on such short notice. Chelsea brought along her friend Scott as an escort, and we shot for close to two hours. Surprisingly, the ship’s flight deck was wide open, there were very few visitors on deck which opened up a lot of areas that are normally swamped with crowds and impossible to shoot at. As always, the magic of Photoshop helped to remove all of the folks that were in the background but on a smaller scale this time.
Chelsea was awesome and she has such an easy-going and natural talent with her style of posing. Full of confidence and a beautiful smile, she made every shot great. Before the shoot, she studied pin-up and discovered that to make the best facial expressions you silently say the vowels, A, E, I, O, and U. I had never heard of this technique before but man o man she was right on and nailed it!!! We had time for three costume changes, and each one she tackled with sleek elegance and vintage flirtatiousness. She was a fearless acrobat climbing in and on everything on the deck. I am sure you’ll agree Chelsea Rea is well on her way to greatness!!!! Tons of fun, and I so can’t wait to work with her again. So without any further chatter enjoy some of the pix from the shoot and be sure to check out her MM page by following the link below. BE SURE TO STAY TUNED for all the pix from Comicon coming next week.
