Retro Photography - Hollywood Style!
Classic Retro Hollywood images were known for their dramatic lighting as well as their sophisticated, sultry poses.
Many of the great Hollywood photographers from the 1920s through to the 1950s produced expressive and haunting images, stirring our imagination with their glamourous black and white portraits.
In recreating Hollywood-style portraits, we draw inspiration from past masters such as John Kobal and George Hurrell in using a narrow depth of field with controlled traditional lighting styles. We aim to achieve striking images that look both effortlessly natural and have a very distinctive, elegant look.
‘It’s all so simple – no one believes me … You strike a pose, then you light it. Then you clown around and get some action in the expressions. Then, you shoot.’ - George Hurrell
