Pinup by mail? Check out what I'm doing on Patreon!

Yesterday, I started a Patreon account.  Ever since I heard of this amazing platform, I've been trying to figure out how I could utilize it as a photographer, and I finally realized that something that's always been in the back of my mind that I've wanted to do could be possible through Patreon.


My first introduction to pin up photography was in the 90s, when I was still in high school and discovered Bettie Page through the photos that Irving Klaw took of her.  Irving Klaw specialized in cheesecake, and later fetish, pin up photography in the 1950s and he distributed his work via mail order. Irving Klaw has always been one of my largest inspirations as a pin up photographer and I appreciate the road that he paved for modern photographers like me.

I am so excited to follow in his footsteps and offer my own work via mail order, with a modern digital twist.  Here's how it will work: Every month I will do a specialty photo shoot with a model exclusively for Patreon.  Photo themes and levels of skin exposure will vary depending on what we are shooting and comfort levels of the chosen model. Pledge at least $20 per month to receive exclusive photos in the mail from these shoots that won't be posted anywhere outside of Patreon. There are also lower pledge levels that will allow you to receive digital copies only, or to see my feed with behind the scenes photos from these monthly shoots.  I'm so excited about this additional creative outlet and to be able to do some artistic and creative shoots each month. 

My first model of the month will be Lollie Pop! Lollie was one of the first models that I worked with when I created the Pinup by Liz brand over 6 years ago, and since then she has become both a friend and a constant muse.  Here are a few examples of photo shoots we have done together over the years:

As you see, we always have a ton of fun in the studio and come up with so many fun themes to shoot!  Our first Patreon shoot is going to be amazing too!  If you want to see it, make sure to sign up asap to get access and get on the mailing list for those photos!  Click here to visit my Patreon page:
