That’s right. You can shoot in our own studios. Located in historic downtown Pottsville Pennsylvania, Retro Lovely Studios is within a 5 hour radius of nearly half the population of the United States. Which means we’re really close to quite a lot of you. We are 3 hours from New York City, two from Philadelphia, 1.5 from Baltimore, about 3 from Washington D.C. and about 4 from Pittsburgh. Our 4,000 square foot studio features several shooting spaces with an impressive array of sets, props and wardrobe. We also rent the space and are often visited by world-class photographers from all over the country.
Our photo sessions are different from any other shoot you will do. They are curated specifically for publication.
If you wish to discuss this one in a lifetime session we would be happy to chat with you. Please serious inquiries only.
This is not a means to show us other work you want published. Our sessions guarantee publication. We also frequently select cover models from among images created at our official partner studios.
These curated sessions will begin with a portfolio review by Retro Lovely publisher Michael Bann who is also the lead photographer of Devilbliss Studios. If accepted a discussion will follow regarding what sort of session would be recommended for you. Down to wardrobe and styling selection. Pose examples will be provided. You will spend approximately 4-5 hours in the studio where a licensed cosmetologist will spend 1.5 to 2 hours styling you and remain on set for touch-ups during principal photography. In addition to the photography for publication we will also create more images for you to have and use as you choose. While we are creating these images for publication in Retro Lovely and ask they remain exclusive to us until the issue is released, we do not require full exclusivity forever. Other images created that we do not use in an issue are free for you to submit and post wherever you choose. Once the session is completed, your schedule permitting, we will break for lunch or dinner and discuss how to best utilize your session and publication to your advantage. If you have a significant fanbase or are a performer of some type it is possible to leverage your publication to your advantage. It is possible for some models to parlay the session and publication in such a way that the shoot cost is greatly reduced by your ability to access copies of the issue at a wholesale. We know this build up sounds expensive. But the fact is this session is well within the average price from any dedicated studio you will find, that is to say a full time studio, the part time, home based studios do have cost advantages we do not. These sessions are also less expensive than 90% of any dedicated boudoir studios.
