About Me

Hi my name is Michele, also known as "Michele Del Ray" in the pinup scene. I am primarily interested in Pinup & Alternative modeling. I love anything from the 40's through 60's in style as well as modern takes on these eras. I love all things tiki, and am interested in shooting in the style of exotica/tiki/voodoo/kitch. I also am a big classic and hot rod nut. I am open to shooting lite Bettie Page style bondage and implied but not full nude.

I started out doing this because I love classic old glamour photos and wanted to capture my own image in this style. I really loved the shoots I have done so far and the fantastic people that I have met doing this. I am always positive, professional, and fun to work with on shoots.

I live in West LA (and also San Diego) and I also have a darling duplex 50's apartment in L.A. furnished with mid century furniture that is good for shoots. (I work in Architecture and Interior Design) If you are interested in using my home for a shoot location please contact me for photos.

I also own a '64 Thunderbird (in process of being restored) if needed for a shoot. I also can provide my own wardrobe (depending on the theme, I have a large private vintage collection of 50's and 60's, vintage lingerie and furs). I can also do my own Makeup (Glamor, Pin up) and Hair (50's sets) if needed.

I am pretty open to ideas so if you have something on your mind and you think I am a good fit please feel free to contact me. I also love collaborating and being involved in the process when appropriate. I love styling and coming up with a look and mood for photos.

If you are interested in shooting please contact me for rates. Of course there are always exceptions to any rules if a TF shoot is mutual.

Some concepts I would love to shoot are:
-Anything with Classics or Hot rods! (for publication or portfolio)
-Tiki (I have been thinking about something like an Exotica album -cover, think Martin Denny!)
-Vintage Hollywood Glamor
-60's Bridget Bardot, or 60's tv themes (Batman, Munsters, etc)
-Circus sideshow (something sexy but dark)
-Always more Pinup!

Thanks so much for taking the time to check out my page!! Looking forward to working with you!!
