Today the spotlight falls on Tulsa-based Liz Huckleby. Since 2012 she has run Pinup by Liz, an offshoot of her longer established photography firm Photos by Liz. She’s a fan of ‘all things vintage, rockabilly and pinup’, and says she enjoys helping women to look their best.
The woman she was helping in the shoot we’re looking at was the pink-haired Lollie Pop, an award-winning tattoo artist who had just opened a shop in Owasso, Oklahoma. Here she is:
The shoot took place in the new shop on March 24, 2013, and drew its inspiration from Bettie Page: some of these poses were definitely out of my usual realm,’ said Liz, ‘but working out of your box is a good thing, right?’
Lollie brought along a friend, Stephanie Monroe.
Well, I say a friend, but her role was in effect only to be a ‘prop’, though Liz took pity on her and decided she deserved a photo of her own:.
And what did they need a human prop for?
