Want to be in Retro Lovely Magazine?

We can't blame you one bit. One of the most important things we look for is style. We love all pinup imagery be it classic period accurate images to those that may look like a post nuclear Betty Page in a Ratrod from Hell. Quality images can happen by accident, often they are carefully planned and executed. The finest pinup images we find are the joint effort of several talented people from the Model to the Photographer to the Makeup Artist, Hairstylist, Fashion Designer and so on. So who can provide you with this sort of pinup photography star treatment?

Well, we've decided to make it a bit easier for you. We are forming a network we're calling The Pinup Syndicate. We are in contact with many of today's top artists in this area and are going to provide a list of those we love to death... artists who produce the very sort of images we want in Retro Lovely Magazine. Many of them you will see on our pages in coming issues. Having your photographs produced by a Pinup Syndicate Photographer / Studio ensures that we already know it will be of an excellent quality and the sort of photography that we would love to include in an issue of Retro Lovely. You can also elect to take part in our popular Corkboard section where for the mere cost of 3 copies of the magazine you can include an image of yours in an issue at no additional cost!

One of the most important components of excellent pinup imagery is the styling of the model. Specifically the work best executed by an accomplished Makeup and Hair Artist. That's where MUAH comes from. Sometimes it's one artist doing each, sometimes one doing both, sometimes it's the photographer themselves! Regardless of which it is, over the years we have noticed the work of certain such artists that impresses us as much as the talents of the photographers of our Pinup Syndicate. We often discuss this with those photographers and all too often the consensus is that the MUAH talent is without question a key component to the best pinup imagery. Below we will list those MUAH artists, who've appeared in Retro Lovely that we feel are at the top of their game. We will be updating this with their locations and links to their pages as soon as we get current info from them. This is not a complete list.
