It all started several years ago when John Gladman decided to pursue his true passion – pin-ups! He was one of the few photographers who turned his studio into the niche of being a full-time pin-up studio.  Gladman holds these PPA degrees: Master of Photography, Master Artist, Photographic Craftsman & Excellence in imaging. John earned Kansas Photographer of the Year six times. In 2013, he became a Kansas Honorary life member. Among his numerous awards, the most mentionable include twenty-six loan collection prints, eighteen Fuji Masterpiece awards, and fourteen Kodak Gallery awards. Gladman’s philosophy is to capture the soul of his subject and bring it to life in print format rather than digital.
