My name is Keke Noir owner of Peep Show Studios. I have been a pinup model for 4 years. Prior to that I was a model with an Austin based agency. After having my first son, my husband encouraged me to try pinup. I had always been a huge fan of the era. I grew up on 50's and 60's rock and doo-wop. I was watching black and white films or Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe movies while my friends watched the latest releases, and I loved Bettie Page (like most good pinup girls do). I had always wanted to try it but didn't think I could. After my husband encouraged me, I found a local photographer and a classic car owner who were willing to shoot with me.
An image from that first shoot got me a full page in the very first issue of Pinup Perfection magazine. I was hooked. I left the agency and decided I belonged in the world of pinup. I continue modeling, and as of now I have made it into 17 magazines, had a book released in May of 2012, and I have become a cast member on the web series American Pinups.
Shortly after I started down the road to pinup, the same photographer contacted me letting me know that other girls wanted to book pinup shoots. He asked if I could help with hair, makeup and posing direction. I was always happy to lend a hand, and eventually, that blossomed into a career. I provide hair and makeup services to many different photographers for many different genres under the name "High Voltage Hair and Makeup".
Four years into my pinup journey, I had a hand in every aspect of a photoshoot except the actual photography. I had learned a lot from the photographers I had worked with so I decided to try it all on my own. Thus, Peepshow Studios was born. I am a one woman company.
For each of my shoots I design and build the set, advertise, provide hair and makeup, posing direction, snap and edit the photos. I run my website, although it is fairly new and, as most things, still a work in progress. So far my photography has been featured in Victory Girls Magazine, Bohemia Magazine (coming soon), and will be in a future special edition of Delicious Dolls Magazine.
I am not sure where Peep Show Studios and this pinup journey is taking me, but I know that I could spend every day of my life soaking in the awesomeness that is Pinup and every amazing thing that is those wonderful days gone by!
