    Sexy, Flirtatious, Fun – Today's Pinup

    $75 for INPPA / MPPA / PPA Members to attend 

    $99 for First time INPPA Members with INPPA Membership.

    Continuing Education:  Service Merit awarded to PPA members.

    Workshop will be held in Curtis Sprague's Photography Studio in Broken Arrow's Rose District.  We may move to a nearby secondary location for the lecture portion of this class.

    The Pinup style has been around for a century and has seen a resurgence of popularity in recent years. This program covers the evolution of Pinup, from it's early days as covers for naughty magazines to the War Years of posters “pinned up” above bunks and painted on the noses of bomber aircraft to the present day. We will discuss the psychology of pinup, how to style your own sessions, and how to market them.

    The program will demonstrate these methods and have plenty of opportunity for working with models to start your own pinup portfolio. We will design, style, and create a pinup from start to finish.
