I present Sarah Troester – feature pinup photographer of the month

I found this vintage photographer on deviantart and went gaga (no, didn’t dress up as her but you know what I mean…) over her stuff and just realised I had to get these ones shown around. But what to do with so much artwork, ah well, only one thing to do, have a feature pinup for her alone every day. And thank god, she was even nice enough to give me permission to do it, phew…  😀 So beside my Todays pinup, you get an extra dose of german pinup/vintage art every day, can’t get any better than that. Well, maybe winning the lottery then… anyhoo, here goes:

Sarah Tröster biography:

She is born in Stuttgart, Germany where as a child she enjoyed being in the darkroom watching the images appearing from her fathers photos (who is also an photographer). Sarah is of course an art scholar and started with photography as an hobby in her late teens (about 17-18 years old).

Went to Dublin in 2002 to study photography (Note: and drink Irish Bitter, naeh, don’t know about that but sounds like something one should do if you are trying to study 🙂 ) for one year and then returning to the motherland to work for a German fashion/ad photographer for half a year doing postproduction in Photoshop (Note: I couldn’t live without my photoshop).

After 3 years of training in graphic designs Sarah also started doing photo-shoots of her own (bands, friends etc.). In 2008 she started work as photographer at Bad Cannstatt in Stuttgart and also doing some of her own photos in the vintage style we all love.

After being introduced to Mademoiselle Raspberry Rose (Note: more of her on the featured pinups to come…) by their mothers (Note: thanks mums, we owe you…) at the portrait studios, she concentrated more on the vintage pinup style photos.

After Mme Raspberry Rose (Note: so want to change my name to that… lol…) left for California in 2009, Sarah started to concentrate on a vintage self-portrait-series, which is compared to the other pin-up images more arty. (Note: this is what she thinks, but I think it’s art both of them if they are done right.)

She  still works at the studio but her goal is to do more of her own stuff to which I at least say, thank god for that 🙂

I hope you will enjoy this month of great photos from her but of course go to her own website to check out the photos before I post them if you don’t want to wait.

Love my coffee

coffee and slacking off

Old Camel commercial More doctors smoke camels…

1949 TV commercial from Camel cigarettes. I actually had a doctor who smoked more than two packs a day and was trying to get me to stop smoking while standing outside his clinic. Was quite a surreal conversation puffing away discussing how to stop smoking 🙂

Beatles Marlboro Cigarette Commercial

Beatles George Harrison and John Lennon mess around and proceed to advertise their cigarettes in the tv style of the 60s

Old Salem Cigarette commercial

Think I will start a new tradition and show some of the old TV commercials for cigarettes, there are so many and since I got most of them on my bookmark page I thought I share them with you all. It’s quite a fascinating look of  how we looked at cigarettes back then.

These Salem ciggies even comes with "Softened with fresh air."

My movie weekend is sorted

Oh boy, I so got my work cut out for me this weekend, got delivered home today a lovely set of DVDs to enjoy and I truly mean enjoy, some of the best and worst movies in a nice mix, my flatmate didn’t look to pleased but I will make her enjoy the awesomeness of these movies. Damn, I need to find myself a geeky girlfriend soon to enjoy these things with.  Any takers?

10674-largeThis one needs no introduction at all I think. Just such an inspiring movie. The biggest-budgeted movie ever produced at Germany’s UFA, Fritz Lang’s gargantuan Metropolis consumed resources that would have yielded upwards of 20 conventional features, more than half the studio’s entire annual production budget. And if it didn’t make a profit at the time — indeed, it nearly bankrupted the studio — the film added an indelible array of images and ideas to cinema, and has endured across the many decades since its release.



And Zsa Zsa Gabor in skimpy outfit                  Jack, jack, jack…. I just love this movie.
doesn’t sounds so bad in                                         This novel based movie was made for him.
Queen Of Outer space

Surprise me, not sure about this one.              The storyline is weak but it’s Cab!

Also remember that I did like this one as a kid but can’t remember that the Son of Kong looked so much like a doofus…


Remembered that I thought Donovan’s
Brain was excellent when I first saw it as a
15 year old, here’s hoping I wasn’t a lousy            This purchase is just because of          
movie fan back then… :D                                          John Carradine, big fan….

Ok, this is probably my weakest purchase but couldn’t help it when I read the story ‘Olaf and his mother run a boarding house, and a white slavery ring. They also smuggle heroin to keep the addict girls happy, so they do not try and escape. A young couple move into the house, and the evil landlords take a liking to the female. Don’t mess with THIS Dwarf…!’ Am so a sucker f0r proper bad bad bad movies.

Laughed out loud when I found this review:

‘this film is weird, terrible acting, terrible music but lots of happy teddybears. worth watching as it is so odd it’s kinda entertaining.’ 

Lots of happy teddybears????? anyway,
