Attn: Photographers, Models, Makeup Artists and Stylists - Photo Studio Rental Space in Los Angeles

Pinup Girl Clothing's Supreme Overlord and in-house photographer has just opened an awesome new photography studio, which will also be available for rental on a day and half-day basis starting October 15th!

This studio was created as a result of Laura's frustration in trying to find decent shooting spaces that:

1) Worked really well for retro and vintage themed shoots

2) Didn't cost an arm and a leg

While we still pride ourselves in shooting at and promoting local retro and vintage themed locations, it became clear that not having a dedicated shooting space was hampering PUG's ability to get our stock photographed and added to the site quickly. Now, we've got a space to do everything from quick tabletop shoots to full catalog projects!

And, this space will be offered as a rental on any days it isn't booked by PUG.

Add the MySpace page: Film Noir Studios

Film Noir Studios is over 4800sq feet and boasts the following features:

12 foot ceilings

A state of the art 400sq foot vintage themed makeup area

Coming very soon (3 weeks):
