I’ve always felt awkward in front of the camera. Do you think that I can be a pinup?
Yes! Even if you’ve never liked pictures of yourself before, we can help. We’ll guide you at every step along the way so your images capture you at your very most beautiful.
Are the women featured on your website professional models?
Every woman featured on our website is a client just like you.
Where are you located?
Shameless Photography has studios in New York City and San Francisco.
Can I bring a guest to my shoot?
We totally understand the instinct to have a friend there for moral support, but we have a no-guest policy because we honestly find that flying solo helps our models focus on themselves & get the very best images. Trust: you’re going to rock this! And we’ll be there to help every step along the way.
I've always wanted to do a shoot in a retro diner, a vintage arcade, or another great site. Do you shoot on location?
Absolutely! Please contact us for details.
Will you keep my pictures private?
We never, under any circumstances, share client images without explicit and enthusiastic client permission. If you wish, your images can be kept completely private and seen by no one else but you and your photographer. If you DO decide to go public with your images, then it is possible you may be featured on the Shameless website, in art exhibits, or in magazines.
Can I post my pinup pictures on sites like Facebook and Pinterest?
Yes! You can use the pictures for any non-commercial use.
Can I use my images for promotion or commercial use?
Shameless holds the copyright on all of our images, and our packages include personal usage rights only. Commercial usage rights are available for purchase — please contact us for details.
How long will it take to receive my images?
You’ll receive your private online proof gallery within 3 business days of your photo shoot (5 business days for Calendar Girl shoots). After you select images for retouching and printing, you’ll receive your final images with 4-6 weeks. If you require images for a special occasion, we recommend booking 6-8 weeks in advance to allow time for image selection and printing of photo products. If you need images sooner, please contact Shameless about a rush order.
What is involved in the retouching of my photos?
Each of your final images will receive magazine-quality retouching and finishing. You can chose between Natural Edits and Glamour Retouching. At Shameless we believe that all bodies are beautiful, and that it’s our job as photographers to capture your best angles and in your best poses. As part of our business mission and philosophy, we do not alter body types or body shapes in Photoshop. We do, however, adjust clothing if it falls in an unflattering way, and we reduce shadows on wrinkles and cellulite if such edits are desired. Our goal is to produce images that are striking and flattering, but also very true to life. If you have any questions about what will be changed, or any special instructions, please do not hesitate to let us know when you send your image requests.
What is your cancellation policy?
Your shoot deposit of $200 is non-refundable. For each reserved shoot date, we have non-refundable direct costs for reserving the studio space and stylist team, as well as purchase of wardrobe and props. For this reason, we require at least 15 days notice if you need to move your shoot date. With 15 days notice, your deposit may be applied toward a rescheduled session within three months of your original shoot date. However, if less than 15 days notice is provided, your deposit is forfeited.
How do I go about purchasing a gift certificate?
Please email us to purchase a gift certificate. Gift certificates are good for one year from issue date and may be upgraded to a larger photo package without penalty.
What other types of photography do you offer?
We’re available for both private and commercial commissioned photo shoots. We specialize in vintage photography but are also available for editorial/fashion, catalog, and promotional photography. Please contact us for details.
