Our studio is based just outside Lichfield in Staffordshire, it’s easy to find and with great road and train links we’re easily accessible, cheap too… you can often find tickets from London Euston to Lichfield Trent Valley for under £20 return.

What makes us unique?  This has to be our combined strengths, by bringing together such a wealth of talent and passion for traditional pinup photography along with our authentically furnished studio sets, professional hair and make-up from one of the uk’s leading pinup models who remains on-hand to provide guidance and coaching on styling and posing techniques. We think you’ll agree that’s a fairly unique package and one that’s hard to match!

The truth is we do what we do because we love it, mid century pinup is our passion, it’s become a way of life and we’re fortunate enough to be able to share it with others, so let me introduce you to the “we” behind the Pinup Academy; who knows you may have even heard of us!

October Divine – Internationally published pinup model, fully qualified make-up artist, vintage hair stylist and mother of two.  October needs little introduction in the pinup scene along with her business partner SINderella Rockafella she is recognised as one of the uk’s top pinup models, October & SINderella are often placed amongst the top 5 in industry polls.  October is the Pinup Academy’s resident make-up artist, hairstylist and 1-1 coach, so you know you’re in good hands!

SINderella Rockafella – It’s safe to say SINderella was born into the scene, with her parents’ involvement and love for Rock & Roll and Rockabilly music, SINderella was always going to either love it, or hate it and thankfully she loves it. You could go as far as to say she was destined to be a pinup and a pinup she is!  Married to a musician and mother to a beautiful baby girl, she is now in her mid twenties and has already achieved so much, internationally published and recognised as an inspiration to many, along with October she frequently runs coaching & mentoring workshops for models via the Pinup Academy’s model coaching programme.

Merry Christmas

Si – is the Pinup Academy’s resident photographer and trainer, his work is repeatedly published internationally and can also be seen featured in many models portfolios.  He shares a passion for re-creating mid century images with SINderella and October and works tirelessly to help promote and improve the industry and is always happy to provide support to those within it.
