WORK OF LOCAL PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHER TO BE SHOWN IN CONJUNCTION WITH HIGHLY ANTICIPATED HOT ROD EXHIBIT
Visitors to the Saratoga Automobile Museum’s highly anticipated “Rolling Bones: The Exhibition of GOW” exhibit, set to debut on Friday, November 11, 2016, will also enjoy perusing the work of Saratoga Springs portrait photographer Lorraine Murphy. A lover of all things vintage, Lorraine specializes in pinup and boudoir photography but has also developed a strong interest in automotive subjects.
Lorraine, who has worked both in front of and behind the lens, became interested in pinup shots a decade ago. When she found no photographers with that specialty in the Capital District, she hired a fashion photographer to shoot some shots with outfits and wigs she put together. She found it was so much fun that she launched a business called “Pinup Makeovers” where she transformed everyday women into classic pinup models. Lorraine mainly works with amateurs who hire her for their own use but she has also supplied photographs for magazines, books and a number of famous clients and area businesses.
Known to many as “Bettie” of Saratoga’s Bettie’s Cakes, Murphy has recently branched out into photographing classic vehicles along with offering wedding, baby, family and food and beverage photography. Her exhibit of automotive portraits will be on display in the auto museum’s theater gallery beginning November 11.
