End of Year Wrap Up

In the final few months of 2012 we have been busy completing many assignments for clients – weddings, portraits and commercial alike.

We begin with some family location portraits with the Wilkes and the Tolhurst families.

Thank you to all our Pin Up Chicks (and dudes) for 2012. We have thoroughly enjoyed meeting you all and transporting you back to the 1950s. We are excited for what 2013 will bring for more Pin Up Shots sessions, especially in our travelling studios. Watch this space!

Miss Modified

Over the last weekend, Pin Up Shots embarked on an exciting new project. We have added a new service to our unique pin up shoots.

We have scouted out an incredible new location, representative of a 1950’s diner, complete with ’59 Cadillacs to offer a spellbinding location experience to our girls… and boys, of course. There’s even a vintage mechanic’s workshop.

The lucky girl to be photographed in this location on the weekend was Rachelle, aka Miss Modified, as her tattoos suggest. 

Rachelle has put a lot of time and effort adorning her body with Rockabilly tattoos and several piercings, what better way to celebrate her uniqueness than a vintage Pin Up Shoot in an equally unique setting. 

Get an eyeful of the pics below; we love them!

Inked girls and boys, if this takes your fancy for a personalised photo shoot, please contact us through our web sites, www.pinupshots.com.au and www.stilz.com.au to reserve your place. We know places will fill fast to get a piece of this place, so don’t miss out!!




Happy New Year!

Happy 2012 to all our clients and friends! Well it has been a while since my last blog entry, but LOTS has happened!

Stilz Fotografika has moved into an exciting new premise in the ever-popular and continuously-growing trading area of Castle Hill, NSW. New Studio 24/7 on Hoyle Ave, Castle Hill is the electrifying fresh location for all your needs in professional photography.

Teamed together with Georgia Blue Photography, we have developed some amazing concepts for events too – one being Pin Up Parties for Hen’s days and our FUN Image Kiosk, aka Photo Booth.

In fact we were extremely busy during the December Christmas festive season with private and corporate Christmas parties, where our FUN open-air photo booths were a huge hit!

Not forgetting weddings, family portraits and corporate work, the last three months of 2011 just disappeared before us!

But we are back this year with a vengeance. Stay tuned as Stilz Fotografika will announce in the coming days some exciting specials to start the year.

Studio 24/7 also offers its facilities to other photographers needing a professional space to meet and greet with their clients. Special offer also to follow.

Again, a great 2012 to all and we will see you all again soon.

The $150 fee for a Pin Up Session is down to ONLY $99 for a limited time only. WOW, we’re nuts! A session includes – a consultation session, hair and make up, the photo shoot, one hi res file and one print and a WHOLE lota fun time!!!FACEBOOK FAN – LIKE our Pin Up Shots facebook page http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Pin-Up-Shots/273036659389688 and get others to like it on your behalf.

Of course, I was almost forgetting the photos. Well I have shot everything from flowers by Flowerama, Castle Hill to teas by Pine Tea & Coffee, Castle Hill. I even had the pleasure of meeting Alan Jones and photographing him during an interview for the GWP Lifestyle & Resources Magazine.
