Vintage Themed Studio Sets

Our vintage themed studio sets have become extremely popular over the years.

Loved by models, clothing companies and magazine publications across the globe.

There’s nothing quite like the transformation of travelling back in time as you step into one of our vintage themed sets, uniquely styled by October complete with traditional authentic props.

 A model’s portfolio is the visual equivalent of their CV.

The decision of whether or not to hire a model is often made without even meeting them, therefore, a great Model Portfolio is… essential!


“Internationally recognised for our themed vintage style photography”

We cater for all genres, but it’s true we have a passion for vintage… Whether it’s 1920s, 1950s or sixties it’s a magical feeling when you recreate images from these classic times.


Diversity is key. What makes a great portfolio, we believe a diverse portfolio that shows the full range of your capabilities can make all the difference, our commercial clients are often looking to create something a little different, therefore they need to be able to see your flexibility in posing and styling.

On your day October welcomes you to her purpose-built studio, adjacent to her home and while she works her magic on your make-up and hair, she’s getting to know you. This is the time to tell her what you like, what you fear and any body part you’re a little conscious of, and yes, we all have them, including October, so there’s no need to be shy.

October advises her clients to bring their own clothes and lingerie for their photoshoot, as this is the ONLY way you can guarantee you’re wearing something you love that fits you perfectly, however, we also have an extensive wardrobe collection which you are welcome to use and October is happy to help you choose, if needed.

Now for the best bit, our traditional vintage studio sets, designed with you in mind, they look great and literally transport you back in time, making you feel right at home. You don’t have to pretend to stand in a 1950s kitchen, when you’re stood in one!
