Pop Art Pinup is an artistic photography studio in Portland, OR specializing in prop based pinup inspired images. We draw influence from early twentieth century illustration and mid-century modern style and design. Pop Art Pinup was started in 2011 by Tony Mancini and Kira Distler for the purpose of publishing fun, positive images in a classic style. We have since added custom sittings and studio rental to our list of offerings.
An experienced artist and photographer, Tony's approach to photography emphasizes simple, fun pictures. After attending Boise State University and working on various creative projects, Tony made his home in Portland, OR in 1999 and began producing images professionally. His work can be seen online, and is occasionally shown in Portland.
An accomplished fashion model and stylist, Kira has been working on both sides of the camera for over 6 years. Her unique style provides the beauty and fun unique to to Pop Art Pinup, an extension of her desire to bring more beauty and love to the world…one pinup at a time.
Pinup is a broad term, and can be used to describe many types of pictures from paintings to photographs, all of which share a similar style. Charles G. Martignette writes, in The Great America Pin-Up (Taschen, 1996), "a pin-up image is one that shows a full-length view of its subject and characteristically has an element of a theme or some kind of story." That's good enough for us, and while we sometimes stray from such a clear definition, we do adhere to the spirit of the time. Pop Art Pinup is our interpretation of the traditional magazine and calendar pinups of yesterday, but, although we draw inspiration from the past, our work is entirely contemporary.
Pop Art Pinup is mostly about fun. Our pictures are intended to make you smile, and if they remind you a bit of old magazine Illustrations, well, it's what we’re about. We use bright colors, unique outfits and pop culture to create our little stories.
Pop Art Pinup is fur free. We never use real animal fur in any of our images.
