…a photo in the style of a shot taken in the 1930’s and 1940’s -  the golden age of Hollywood. We use the same High-Key lighting and background effects as the photographers of this amazing era to create the distinctive studio “look”  with either film or digital..  


See movie style stills

 and our examples of Film Noir style to see how far we can go!


If you are a fan of this era, are part of the music and dance scene or are keen on reenactment, this is for you.

CLASSIC VINTAGE use over 30 years of experience to give clients a unique opportunity to create portraits that have the look and feel of a bygone era.


Using our extensive collection of original  period cameras, some of which were made over 140 years ago, we can faithfully recreate the lighting and the look of the past in your portrait.  This isn’t just a gimmick, but our experience and knowledge of past techniques can offer you a fascinating alternative to modern photography, whether we use film or modern digital


We use original Victorian cameras and film technology to take early 19th century style photographs in the field or studio. The results are highly atmospheric, captured on film plates.


Individuals who have period dress such as uniforms, Suffragette costume etc.make ideal subjects for this unique type of picture.


The finished pictures can be turned into  framed prints and also digital files for you to show on the internet.  


Re-enactors of all eras have an eye for accuracy of dress and location. Photographs taken with period cameras on film or glass plates add the finishing touch.


Call us if you want an event photographed or visit our studio for costume portraits in your period dress..


We can faithfully recreate the type of studio portrait photograph that was must-have in the past and particularly in WW2











Classic Vintage will take your  portrait photograph with film or digital, using a combination of old and new techniques. Our studio uses a traditional lighting set-up which can be combined with various backdrops to produce whatever effect you may want, even composite

Pictures made from multiple photos - See example here

This type of photo can be framed and mounted in a simple elegant frame, either free standing or for wall hanging.
