AMERICAN AIRPOWER MUSEUM 5: always amazing! (reservation page)

OK, Pinuppers! This is how all of you PHOTOGRAPHERS can reserve a spot at this amazing shoot!

(Be sure to check the info page for more details!


MODELS are being cast and most spots are full.  Please do NOT reserve a spot if you are a model and wish to participate.



-we will be shooting in daylight, sunset (!), and nighttime (with continuous lights).

-There are approx 8 different shooting areas within the museum/runway location that will be used for shoots

-We will have 8-10 models, and each will go through several wardrobe changes

-this shoot will happen RAIN OR SHINE.  There are plenty of cool places inside the hangar.

-we will have multiple hair and makeup artists, as well as a pro wardrobe stylist.

-Also, we will have AWESOME aeronautical inspired fashions from fantastic designer Kristin Costa.  Exciting and Avant Garde pieces that will fit right in with this shoot!

-the models are all gorgeous!  (You will receive a release from each model at no additional charge.)

-You will get a wide variety of photographs from this shoot!



Please note:

By participating, you agree to the following requirements from the American Airpower Museum.

1.  This is at an active airport/runway.  Do NOT take flash photos of planes landing or taking off.  It can distract the pilot and it is dangerous.

2.  Always listen to NY Pin Up Club organizers, but know that American Airpower Personnel supersede our authority and are the final word on where we can and cannot shoot.  Listen to Museum staff at all times.

3.  Any photographs taken at the American Airpower Museum (AAM) that are published (or posted online) are to credit the AAM.  Also, the AAM is granted a license to use the photos for non-commercial purposes (such as being displayed on their website or in a pamphlet).  Which, to me, is more than fair and potentially results in more exposure for your work.


If you are not willing to comply with their requirements, please do not participate.


See you on the runway!

A quick note, since it comes up now and then:

Refunds are only granted if the shoot is cancelled.  This shoot will happen Rain or Shine.  Refunds are not provided if you realize you have a wedding to go to that day, or if you realize your 8mm lens is a bit too limiting, or if some light drizzles are expected and you are aquaphobic.

Also, reserved spots are non-transferable.

Please understand: setting up a shoot like this takes a great deal of work.  We put down a rental deposit, we hire staff, and we acquire props/wardrobe with the fees you provide.

    Is it too late to RSVP through pay pal, just better to pay at the door?

    Would it be possible for the models to sign the releases in advanced? I believe all attendees to last year's event will like the idea.
