Retro Rob

Retro Rob

If it is Hollwood themed then it has to feature the King of Cool, Retro Rob. If you haven’t photographed him before or even if you have, you dont want to miss this chance to work with such a mercurial and enigmatic model.

Baby Daisy

Baby Daisy

Joining us for the first time, Baby Daisy will be adding that touch of glamour to our event with her passing resemblance to Marilyn Monroe.

Jack Cutler as Charlie Chaplin

Jack Cutler as Charlie Chaplin

Jack as Chaplin is mesmeric and always popular. The characterisation is so precise that it just has to be seen and photographed live. Add into that mix a location that fits perfectly, then you have Hollywood Gold.

Rachel Frances

We are delighted to welcome Rachel back after she first appeared for us a few years back. Beautiful, elegant and with a distinct 1940’s style, Rachel is our Hollywood starlet.

Cariad is a very popular model on the circuit. We are delighted to have her on board to add that extra Hollywood touch.

Laurel and Hardy

Laurel & Hardy

When we last featured our Laurel & Hardy tribute act, they were absolutely superb, capturing the interaction between the pair, the tomfoolery and expressions to perfection. Once again, inviting them back to a Hollywood styled event was an obvious choice.


The Plaza is a Grade II listed art deco single-screen cinema and theatre in Stockport, Greater Manchester, England. It opened in 1932, its construction having involved the excavation of the sandstone cliff behind it. After an initial closure in 1966 and a subsequent period in use as a bingo hall by Rank Leiure, it has now been restored as a cinema and theatre, showing films staging live shows and now hosting a Session Days event.

Stockport Plaza Auditorium


We believe firmly that group events should allow everyone attending to get an equal opportunity to shoot with each of the models. We arrange attendees into groups of three and then rotate each group around the sets in turn approximately every 30 minutes. Our events are run with precise timings so that it works for everyone involved with a short break between each set. On this event each attendee will get to work with each of the models in turn.


Lighting equipment will be provided on each set indoors where necessary for your use. The use of lighting equipment is included within your admission price. Lights will be continuous lights provided for this event. If you require assistance using the lights provided then we will be on hand to provide expertise.

You are also welcome to bring along your own lighting rigs if you are more comfortable using them but you must keep them with you at all times.


We want to keep you up to date with what we are planning and also to get your feedback and comments. Take a look at our blog posts.
