Anyone following pin-up photography over the last few years knows Roy Varga! The very talented photographer has worked with all the big names and many up & coming pin-ups! We were very lucky to have a moment of his time!

Tell us about your career and how you came to be the man you are today?

Well I bought my first camera when I was 23 it was a very cheap point and shoot camera. I did a shoot with some friends for fun. I put them online and people just started offering to pay me from there.

You’ve worked with most of the big name models in pin-up. Anyone you’d like to work with that haven’t photographed yet?

Hmm Dita Von Tease would be awesome to work with. But other then that. Maybe that really hot red head from True Blood. I love Red Heads.

What sets you apart from other photographers doing retro style pin-up?

Umm I think other photographerss just view it as a subject or a “style.” This is my life I grew up with old cars and listening to old music. My daily driver is a hot rod and I live in a fully furnished 50’s home. Others just photograph it cause they think its cute but they dont really understand it. They dont understand that its not a trend, Its a lifestyle

Describe a typical photo shoot?

Usually I make a bunch of stupid jokes to make the girl a lil more comfortable. I try and talk to the girls like I’ve known them for years. Crack jokes bust chops, anything to loosen them up. And yes sometimes a shot of JD haha.

Who are your influences?

I have always loved Wiki Tiki Octavio and he was kinda the reason I got into it. Because I just wanted to take bad ass pics with attitude like he does. Shanon Brooke is amazing as well and great gal to hang out with. Truly just a sweet person and who can ever forget 666 Photography. I think those photographers really set the bar high .

What projects can we expect from you in the future?

First book called Kustom Kamera is on sale now on Amazon and available in stores in Sept 2010. I will have a new Pinup calendar for VLV14 in April of 2011. and im currently in talks with a Tabasco company but that is hush hush so thats all I can say. But how cool would it be to pick up a pack of Cigs and see a Varga Pinup.
